More & Less

CeCe’s Musings: A Brand New Year


January 1: a new year, a new beginning, a new road. Many people believe in New Year’s superstitions that either bring good luck or summon doom if they are ignored. I tend to believe you make your own victories. Life is full of serendipity. You have to be the one to recognize it.

So, instead of dwelling on a lucky break, I am going to embrace my own karma. This year will be the road less traveled, and to paraphrase Robert Frost, that will be make all the difference.

What is out there? Adventure, creativity, solace, some pain, much joy, stories, music, a few tears, lots of smiles, and love, love, love.

I am going to begin this journey with my More & Less List

No resolutions, just more of this and less of that.


This year I want to

write more and feel less guilty when I don’t.

walk more and sit less.

be more generous and less selfish.

bake and cook more fabulous food and eat less junk.

drink more great wine and consume less swill.

laugh more and worry less.

create more and hurt less.

love more and judge less.

read more great literature and spend less time on social media.

meditate and practice yoga more and be less stagnate.

travel more and be less afraid.

be more present in the moment and remember to never be less than I am.


“Say everything you’ve always wanted
Be not afraid of who you really are
‘Cause in the end we have each other
And that’s at least one thing worth living for”
