From my experience, these "words" are much like New Years Resolutions. You know what I mean. At the beginning of the year you resolve to do something better and quickly forget that you did. Good intentions sometimes die quickly.
So as the new year approached, the thought of selecting a "word" crossed my mind then quickly flew right through. On second thought, how about a phrase. Maybe a phrase, cousin to a thought, might be a little more lasting and gratifying.
I've been thinking about "MORE OR LESS". What the heck does that mean?
I want to SEW MORE. Which really means I'll watch TV LESS. And actually spend LESS time with Terry because my sewing machine is in a different room than where he spends most of his time. (I could sew while he naps. That would give me an hour or two.)
I want to WEIGH Less, which really means I'll EAT MORE healthy, low calorie food.
I want to SAVE MORE money, which translates to SPEND LESS.
See, you get the idea. Less is More and More is Less so this year I chose a phrase, More or Less.
1. Sew MORE so I will have LESS fabric stash.
2. Embroider MORE so I will have LESS stress.
3. Crochet MORE so I will have less yarn stash.
4. Comment MORE on blogs to promote MORE friendships. OOPS! More is More.
What this is really about is this. I will have a MORE healthy mindset by using More and giving MORE which means I will have LESS but get MORE.
What do you think? or as my favorite niece would say: How do you like me now!! I love it when she says that!!
Happy New Year.
