And I thought about how many resolutions I've attempted throughout the years have been about less: less worry, less debt, less whatever. It got me thinking about how this turning to "less" feels like deprivation, which isn't all that inspiring--not that those goals in and of themselves were bad or negative. So I wondered: What if my thoughts for 2016 were "more"?
