2015 the Year of More and Less

2015 the Year of More and Less.

Since 2013, I’ve named the years.  They’ve been “The Year of Taking More Risks, Having More Fun and Expanding Cultural Horizons” (2013); “The Year of Celebration, Exploration and Adventure (2014).  2015 is “The Year of More and Less”.

Here’s my beginning list. I don’t  make resolutions, but want 2015 to be “more” of certain attitudes and behaviours and “less” of others.  What about you? Do you have suggestions to add to the list?

  1. I like this list and the idea of adjusting the dials to get to the life/lifestyle you crave. For me, I’d add “more road/less rage.”
