It is with this in mind that I’ve decided to stop my weekly newsletter. I decided it was really, when it boiled down to it, just fluff. And extra emails in your inbox. You don’t need that.
In scaling down the “must do’s” and the “don’t need’s”, what I’m trying to apply to my life is quality over quantity.
Less is oftentimes more.
I am at the point in life when I know I have more years behind me than before me. And that realization makes me want to enjoy my life and let the rest go to the wayside.
Yesterday I saw an opthamologist. The diagnosis was what I expected and what happens to so many of us as we age: a floater in my right eye. I’m learning to adapt to gray squiggles that randomly float across my eye.
I’m not saying my pain is different from anyone else’s pain. There is always someone in more pain.
I find that I am more irritable, and I don’t want to be. I tell myself to just finish the dishes and ignore the pain until I can get off my feet and raise my leg.
Being frugal means not being wasteful. The most precious thing you don’t want to waste are the minutes and hours and days of your life.
You don’t get a “do over.”
It is in this vein of thinking that I have been pondering a lot of things. I have blogged non-stop pretty much every day for years now. It is part of my daily routine.
But maybe I don’t need to post everyday. Maybe I have to begin to fight those compulsions that I have mindlessly taken on.
If you agree with this idea, let me know in the comments. Is less really more to you?
And what do you find most meaningful in your life right now? What kinds of posts do you truly want to see, and what posts do you really not care about anymore?
Sometimes change is good.
I’m thinking about turning off comments. Would this bother you?
