More and/or Less

Is it just me, or has this been an unusually good season for roses?
This morning, the dawning of my 30th day of living the Fast-5 lifestyle, I finished the compilation of Thirty Days of More and Less.  My intention, being a wee bit obsessive/compulsive, was to wait until the first of next month and begin posting these one day at a time on my facebook page.  I may still do that, but I also faced the reality that the future - even next month - is not guaranteed to any of us.  And so without further ado, here they are:

More action; less talk.
More silence; less noise.
More veggies; less dessert.
More smiles; less frowns.
More reading; less television.
More exercise; less sitting.
More flowers; less weeds.
More complimenting; less criticism.
More saving; less spending.
More initiative; less boredom.
More prayer; less worry.
More others; less self.
More truth; less falsehood.
More faith; less doubt.
More concern; less indifference.
More blessing; less cursing.
More gratitude; less complaint.
More giving; less grabbing.
More talking; less texting.
More water; less soda.
More flexibility; less rigidity.
More compassion; less scorn.
More facts; less fiction.
More knowledge; less ignorance.
More humility; less pride.
More cooperation; less competitiveness.
More kindness; less rudeness.
More patience; less impulsiveness.
More industriousness; less laziness.
More Jesus; less me.

  1. Loved your 'Thirty Days'. Great food for thought.


  2. Very interesting, what great goals! Good to reflect upon. I haven't been posting much as I've been crafting and can't seem to walk and chew gum at the same time!
