For a few years I’ve had the tradition of picking a word for the year, a single word that could serve as inspiration and keep my priorities in check. This year my word is LESS. Why? Because I’m continually drawn to MORE, as is our entire society. But this year, I’m determined to try out the idea that LESS is MORE.
Here is my “Less-is More-List”:
- Less busyness. More intentionality.
- Less stuff. More open space.
- Less buying. More progress toward financial freedom.
- Less computer time. More relationship time.
- Less worrying. More appreciating.
- Less fragmentation of my time. More focus in areas where I’m called.
- Less medicine. More natural health.
- Less striving. More trusting.
- Less outside the home. More in the home.
- Less of me. More of the Lord.
Most moms, whether we homeschool or send our kids to a traditional school, whether we earn income in or out of the home or are primarily homemakers, whether we have a diploma or a doctorate, whether married or single, most of us moms second-guess ourselves. I want to do that less, and I want to enjoy the journey more.
