    More accepting, less resisting. More presence, less reliving unpleasant moments of the past. More love and understanding, less judgement.

    I immediately thought of a blog post I wrote at the end of December 2018 with the title “More or Less”, suggesting this as a good way of approaching resolutions (which I don’t tie to January 1–a good idea is a good idea any time of year). A few of the items from that are still relevant:
    More moving, less sitting.
    More sleep, less late-night reading. (But books are awesome!)
    More mindfulness, less impulse.
    Today I would add:
    More patience, less frustration.

    At this stage in my life I could do a bit more meditation and physical exercise, and of course, physical therapy. I could do less worry. Lots less.

    Balance is the answer and a constant struggle for me. Less worry more awareness.

      The need for balance seems to apply to everything. Agree about the worrying too.

    More- exercise, better food choices, random acts of kindness
    Less – junk food, negative self-talk – I’ve gotten much better, it’s a WIP

    More of meditation, more of spontaneous reply, and less of rejecting. Open up to devotion

    More meditation and less ruminating! After reading what others have shared, I wanted to share a poem I wrote in 2009.

    Now Here or No Where by C Conner

    If one is not NOW HERE,
    one is NO WHERE

    The intellect craves a place.
    The spirit flows like the wind into every nook and cranny.

    When someone recounts an experience, they might say, “You had to be there.”
    But to truly “be there” you have to “be here,”
    Present to the one sharing the memory.

    You can run “there” to get away from “here,”
    But you most likely will find yourself
    lost and disappointed.

    Now Here or No Where
    Your choice moment by moment

    I should trust my faith more intently and worry less about the things I cannot change or control.

    I could listen more intently, be in the present while listening. I could respond before being fully aware to a situation less.

    I could do less thinking, ruminating, futuring and more being in this present moment. When I am totally present it feels so peaceful and joyful.
