Are you confused? You didn’t send me a gift because you thought I wanted less? Don’t worry, you did the right thing. I don’t want more stuff. I don’t want gifts in pretty packages. My 42nd year was so brilliant and amazing and I want more of that. More brilliance, amazement, prayer, love, gratitude, laughter, collaboration, reveling, marveling and a few other things.
Today is the beginning of a brand new year and I want more …
For the first time in my life, I work for myself and make my own schedule. I can find 20 minutes or more everyday to just be in the sunshine.
The farmer’s market will be starting soon in Salt Lake City and I want to support local farmers and linger over slow roasted tomatoes stuffed with garlic and olive oil, fresh bread and other lovely, local food.
I want to write more. I want to write blog posts and books that help people change slowly and deliberately, and to make them feel loved and supported while they do it.
I love creating new projects and helping others fuel their creativity by launching incredible blogs, projects and businesses and I want more of it.
My local friends and I love each other but don’t spend much time together. It’s time ladies! Call me. My far away friends and I love each other too, but it’s been awhile since we talked. It’s time.
A year from now, my daughter will graduate from high school and start her own big, beautiful life. I want time with her.
I am married to the perfect man for me. I want to hike with him, travel with him and drink champagne on the beach with him. I want more days like this past weekend …
Of course! I want more less. I am taking the 100 Thing Challenge. I read Dave Bruno’s book more than a year ago and have been thinking about taking the challenge ever since. I have my list almost complete and have been boxing up the straggling stuff that continues to make the decluttering cut. I am ready to live lighter than ever. I’ll be posting my list and rules next week so you can follow along, challenge my challenge, or just enjoy the ride. Note: I’ll be living within the parameters of Project 333 as well.
To enjoy more every year, owning less has been the answer. Mark and I have challenged ourselves to reduce our expenses by 50% or more over the next 5 years. You may think 5 years sounds like a long time, but it seems like I was 38 yesterday, and I’m 43 today. It was a full, delicious 5 years, but it was fast.
How can you live lighter? How can you live small so you can live big?
