Are we "Keepers"..?

Simplify simplify simplify... That is what my mind keeps telling me these days. Over the years I have tried to rid my life of that which causes havoc and grief, and keep those things which spawn goodness and pleasure. Now, that doesn't mean to throw out anything that doesn't go my way, and keep whatever has a bow wrapped around it. However I have put much thought into that line which is pretty undefined. Where does one draw that line? That decision between keeping or letting go...(a job, a situation, or perhaps even a person)

“The way to find out about happiness is to keep your mind on those moments when you feel most happy, when you are really happy — not excited, not just thrilled, but deeply happy. This requires a little bit of self-analysis. What is it that makes you happy? Stay with it, no matter what people tell you. This is what is called following your bliss.”

:Joseph Campbell

As I've analyzed that question, I have also asked myself whether or not I am the kind of person that people would want to keep around. Do I, in fact, add to the lives of others? Do I bring value to an equation? Valid questions for I believe they go hand in hand. If I am to hope for value; then I must ask whether or not I am VALUable enough to have value returned unto me. Am I a keeper?:). Am I a producer or am I only apt to take, that which is produced by another?
The law of attraction is one of BEING that which we ask the universe to return unto us...
Am I BEING? Not "have I been" (for that indicates the past)...But RIGHT NOW... Am I BEING the type of person that i want to attract? Do I merit that which I seek? Or am I sitting back full of entitlement..?

I suppose that before we let something go in our lives, we should analyze ourselves first... Sometimes it's ok to let things go their way...away from us. Yet others we SHOULD hold onto, even when it's difficult... for they add to and beautify life...

Hard line to draw... So I would say I wanted to share (and invite comments on) two thoughts... When is it better to let things go? And analyze if I (you as the reader) am someone that others should let go of...or do I add to life as a whole to be counted as a "KEEPER"....? :)
