There are three areas where I'd like less this year. I'd like less of me. I know I'd feel better weighing 20 pounds less. With that in mind I will focus on how I can eat less.
I'd like less clutter around me. When I look around my apartment I see too much paper. I feel as though I haven't thrown a piece of paper out in the eighteen years that I've lived here. I have. I seem to throw out bags of paper weekly, but it still piles up. And I am a saver. I save magazines to be read at a later time, newspaper articles that may come in handy one day and crossword puzzles that I may want to do one some night that I can't sleep. It's all just too much.The dining room table has about three weeks of unsorted mail staring at me. The cards are on display and the bills are in their file, but everything else is unsorted and at the cusp of taking over the table. My goal for this weekend is to reclaim the table and sort out some of the pile in a drawer that is waiting to be filed. With this victory I will begin the attempt to wring some order to my paper morass.
I hope to worry less, especially about my job. My job is (seemingly) secure, but we are facing real funding issues that may impact our pay and other benefits. This is a frequent topic of conversation in the office. Some of the discussion is based in fact and some is just conjecture. I need to spend less time with colleagues discussing what might happen. I have no control over these actions and as with so many issues, my worry will not change anything.
I am hoping to get a handle on these three issues. And when -- not if -- I do less will be so much more!
