The letter is M. Hmmmmm.
The only thing that came to my mind every time I thought about this writing assignment was the saying from an old Sizzlean commercial many years ago.
"Move over bacon...now there's something leaner."
Why in the world would I be thinking of that? I really couldn't get past it.
So....I decided to work through it.
Other than the bacon thing...I've been thinking a lot lately, like most I'm sure, about my hopes and goals for the new year! I am really not one to make resolutions because I learned long ago that doing so can lead to frustration and disappointment when I don't follow through....and sometimes I don't even get started.
But the one thing I know that I want for this year is .....MORE!
Not more stuff or more money, more friends or more obligations, or even more organization....
When I say MORE, I mean "leaner".....meatier, bigger, better, more meaningful and more satisfying.
Geeez....I guess that's what everyone wants, huh?
Now the question is "how do I go about moving the bacon (which is already yummy and fabulous) to get to the meatier more satisfying MORE that I am searching for?
The funny thing is...I think the answer starts with LESS.
Less running around and fewer obligations to gain more freedom, less spending to equal more saving, less clutter to gain more organization, less worry and stress, less saying "Yes".
Does anyone else long for less to get MORE?
There is something so attractive about playing it simple, don't you think?
Of course, I still have goals to make and dreams to dream for this new year of possibilities ...2011.
I just want to move ahead with caution...slowly,carefully and prayerfully....
before I get so crazy busy that I just eat the bacon and keep on running.
Have a great Thursday!
