More and Less

Seeking the right balance.

Seeking the right balance.

March 23, 2010

Fourscore and four years ago, I took my first breath.  If another fourscore and four years would pass before I took my last breath, one could say I lived a long life.  This would put me right smack in the middle of it now, so it’s about time I stop and reflect on how I want to live the second half of my years.  What do I want more and less of, so that one could say I lived a long, healthy and happy life?

After yin-yanging back and forth, I came up with forty-four more’s and less’s for aging stronger and living better during the second half of my journey…

acceptance denial settling grace
nurturing haste impatience appreciation
pausing pit stops wasting leisure
chewing whiskers liver spots intuition
straightness slouching sagging strength
order clutter complications simplicity
being doing chaos stillness
awareness attachments controlling authenticity
freedom rigidity negativity forgiveness
passion dwindling procrastination purpose
zest dripping drooping energy
seeking confinement predictability wonder
bending stiffness aches bonding
deep breathing rushing furrows meditating
inward ego noise peace
oneness judgment guilt compassion
athletic adventures sitting hunching nature
giving stuff forgetfulness kindness
creativity spinning twiddling bliss
quality strain fear joy
twinkle disruption dryness heart
star gazing doubt worry gratitude

Now, standing on middle ground, I look forward to having more and less in the latter portion of my life.  Both will allow me to live healthfully and happily ever after.  Here’s wishing you the same.
