Life Editing: 2022

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 ?
