Less is More

January 14, 2016

This year I’m on a mission to embrace a new equation.

–    =   +

Less is more.

It won’t be easy.  It involves breaking years of engrained habits – habits that started out with positive intent.  But too much of a good thing became like an anchor to my soul.

Sure, I can do it.” 

“No problem, happy to help.”  

“Ok.  I’ll find the time.”

Add more.  Take on more.  Do more.

+   +   +

More was better until:

  Life became more about powering through the day than being in it.

 Life became a series of tasks to check off the list versus a series of moments to enjoy.

Life became so full that I felt empty.

God never intended us to live life so full that it weighs us down.   “For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” – Matthew 11:30

Life can be lighter when we shed the load that was never ours to carry in the first place.

This is the year of the minus sign for me.  It means greater use of a simple two letter word that begins with a “N” and ends with an “O”.  It means focusing on being fully present in fewer things.

Life can be “fuller” when it’s not so full.   🙂

Less is more.

     –  =  +

    Kristin, a good reminder. Years ago someone told us to say no so we can say yes. You reminded me the reasons to say no. Thanks. Rebecca
