Do you ever find yourself with Leftover Living, bogged down in the old and outdated, cleaning up what’s been overlooked or neglected, instead of looking forward to and engaged in a future that promising and exciting?

A lot of people get confused, I think, with feeling overwhelmed by what they see as things that need to be taken care of.
