This New Year, I’m vowing to continue with some “Life Editing.” I’ve re-tooled my list from last year a bit with a goal of making room for even more good stuff !
A Adverbs: Because life is short, isn’t it, Ernest ?
B Babbling: Small talk is over-rated; quietude is better.
C Cheap French Wine: Où est le point ? Taste is the point !
D Drama: Because no one wants to be around a drama queen !
E Exaggerating: Less is more.
F Following: Lead, instead.
G Giving Up: Keep going, even when I think I can’t.
H Hurrying: If I’m constantly hurrying through life, I may miss out on some of the good stuff !
I Good Intentions: Don’t just plan, act !
J Junk Food: It’s January. No explanation needed, right ?
K Knickknacks: Curios, collectibles or clutter? Again, less is more !
L Lonely: The ‘2021 Word of the Year’, right? Learn to enjoy time alone, which is so different than being lonely.
M Moderation: If it’s worth doing, it’s worth going all-in, right ?
N Nightclubs: Hmmm… what’re nightclubs ?
O Overthinking: Again, life’s too short.
P Perfectionism: It doesn’t really exist, so why bother ?
Q Quitting: Success is partly about not giving up. (See ‘G’ above.)
R Retirement: Research shows that those who continue to engage in meaningful work enjoy longer, healthier lives.
S I’m Stumped: Can’t think of a single “S” word worth giving up. You ?
T Television: Except for PBS, of course.
U Utopian Ideas: See ‘P’ above.
V Very: My least favorite adverb. (See ‘A’ above.)
W Worrying: Why bother ? Be happy !
X :-x: Emoticons have never been my thing !
Y Yes: Instead, learn to say “No” at least once a week.
Z Zoom: Need I say more ?
What would you add to this list ?
Very apropos, Rebecca. Good way to start the year!
Thank you, Barbara!
