Less and More in 2013

I've got a lot on my mind for 2013.  I began jotting down some ideas of what I want more of in my life and what I want less of.   The list started off with "less sugar" as I came down from my Christmas sugar coma and felt so blah- yucky skin, lower energy, and a feeling that I needed a sugar detox.  But the list immediately grew into deeper things.  The older I get, the more I find we all want these deeper things.  We all crave inner peace, a full life, and true love.

I'm hoping to keep the momentum of slowing down, keeping priorities straight and spending time purposefully going throughout the year.  I want peace and beauty.  Life and joy.  The promise of hope and a fresh start that a new year brings.  


I really think it's going to be a beautiful year.

  1. Good for you Megan! That list looks a lot like mine. Truth be told...I want off the roller coaster. My bible study this past fall read the book A Life God Rewards by Bruce Wilkinson (also author of the Prayer of Jabez and Secrets of the Vine). After reading it, we all came to the conclusion we were doing a lot of things for the wrong reasons, and not for our eternal future. It really is a great book, and I highly recommend it. Probably the one most important tidbit from the book that has stuck with me is "living for the line, not the dot".
    Wishing you a Blessed New Year my friend!

  2. Wonderful list! I think focusing on the "more" side will definitely lead to less of the other stuff. Blessings!

  7. I do a word for each year and my 2012 word was actually a pair or words.. less / more! I had many of the same "goals" you have listed.. and met most of them to an extent! There were other less / mores that happened in my life.. unexpecteds.. and God was there as always and I grew as a result. Praying you have a great less/more 2013!

  22. What a great list! I hear you on the sugar detox... ugh! :)

    A great book I just started - recommended on another blog - Mitten Strings for God - Reflections for Mothers in a Hurry
    http://www.amazon.com/Mitten-Strings-God-Reflections-Mothers/dp/0446676934/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1356923257&sr=1-1&keywords=mitten+strings+for+god

    The chapters are short and I've been trying to read one a day. It's just refreshing and really makes me think about what I can do to slow down (even with a baby!)

  27. What a beautifully written post Megan! I love this less/more list! What a great way to wrap your mind around your goals. I think we are definitely on the same page. I spent the 1st cleaning out my pantry and refrigerator even though I'm still not done putting Christmas away. I just really wanted to start the year out on a super healthy note! I'm doing a sugar detox too!
