I was digging around in a junk drawer the other day and found this:


A reminder I made for myself many, many years ago. It turns out I’ve been trying to embrace this “want less” mindset for a long time.

Maybe some day I’ll actually manage it. I wish I could understand why it’s taking me so long to get there.


  1. I think it is about celebrating with gratitude the good parts in our lives and focusing on those who love you (however imperfectly they are able to meet your needs).
    May your holidays be filled with love and laughter and patience for not only others but also yourself.
    Thank you so much for all the kindness of this year and all the hard work you put into writing and sharing honestly and openly. You are a bright spot in my world.

  2. I agree with the comment above and also want to wish you, as we say in Scotland, ” A guid new year and all the best for 2016″. I hope you have a happy and peaceful Christmas and I would also like to thank you for your writing and the many thought provoking discussions that your posts always stimulate. I have appreciated every one and I look forward to reading many more. Seasons greetings to you and your family!
