More and Less

I got a facial for my birthday; that's what I said I wanted and thoughtfully he granted.  While I was laying in the semi-dark, facing a new year in my life, a new year on the calendar, I had some time for reflection.  This isn't a list of resolutions; I'm not quitting anything, just doing a little less of some things and a little more of others...

  Less    More   
soda    water
driving    walking 
 talking    listening
planning    doing    
     wistfulness   being content   
watching   reading 
watching    playing 
lecturing    loving   
saying   being
  chocolate...   just kidding

Let's don't get crazy, now.

Great plan! Just gotta move that chocolate over into the right column and I could use that as a model.

What a good strategy. I will reflect on this myself.

Great list! Happy birthday!

Hahaha -- glad to know you've regained at least some sanity! A fun list -- good stuff to think about!

Great list! I'm working on more listening and more being this year too. And I, too, will keep the chocolate right where it is - we just made candy cane peppermint bark. Thanks so much for the tip about sizing the shrug. Happy holidays to you and your family!

Love this idea...and I plan on stealing it (more like borrowing I guess) for my blog :)

Take care!
