A year in review… since I started this blog the following has happened:
I’ve had 5177 views on 124 posts.
I have 16 followers… somehow picked up a few more that I hadn’t been paying attention to but I certainly appreciate each and every one of you.
As I sit here, 2.25am on the first day of 2012, I think about all the posts I’ve seen from the various blogs I follow.
Years in review, resolutions, changes, new beginnings…
But the one that stuck with me the most is the one I most recently began to follow… Evada Peron’s blog. Go read the Dec 30 post. Its interesting and stuck with me.
On a seemingly randomly different topic ( but totally related, I assure you) I was in for my yearly physical yesterday (the day before?) and talking to my doctor about my health – my need to lose weight because I have a family history of heart disease and diabetes and being fat WILL KILL ME.
He suggested that with my already busy schedule – I needed to look at my intake rather than my output, I needed to eat less or eat more healthy.
I need to get “less” of me.
So to tie in the doc’s appointment with Evada Peron’s post… my New Year’s Resolution is LESS:
Less screen time.
Less junk food.
Less sitting at my desk (go for a daily walk!!)
I resolve that I will lessen the demands I put on myself in order to be more efficient and productive, that in doing so, I will have MORE time for my kids, my friends and my hobbies.
I resolve less.
Less is more.
I have just gotten in from my New Year’s Celebration with friends. I really really enjoyed myself. I may not be entirely coherent today. But I hope that the thoughts rattling around in my head have made sense. I’ll reblog tomorrow if they don’t.
Happy New Year…. this is the year of less. (for me anyhow)
