31 Days of Wishes: I Wish for Less

My wish is for less… or fewer, whichever word is grammatically appropriate. :)

I could list a whole stack of things I would love to have more of: time, vacation, friends, money, and so on. Isn’t it nice to think about what you would wish to get less of? We are born conditioned to want more and more and more. And yet many of us all realize at some point that more really isn’t what we want at all.

What we really want is: enough.

Over the weekend, I started to realize that wishing for more time is just a waste of time. So I refocused my wishes to something that actually would give me more time.

I wish for:

  • less wasted time on thoughts or memories that I can do absolutely nothing about but still somehow manage get me down a bit
  • fewer times that I get so stressed out and tell my kids…” just a minute” then realize 20 minutes later I left them hanging just so I could… you know… “just get this done really quick!” :{ Yeah, I did that too much this year.
  • fewer detours
  • fewer illnesses
  • less depressing junk (wish I could use another word there) on tv or in my reading materials
  • less junk food… (This is the most difficult time of the year to with for that isn’t it?!

Most of all I wish for less stress. Maybe that means I need to wish for fewer moments to occur in which I allow things to pile up and come crashing down. Maybe it means that I need to wish for less impatience when things don’t go perfectly.

☆ Happy Holidays ☆ with less of what you don’t need. ;)
