2009 Resolution

I want to want less. 2009 will be my less is more year.

In the sermon I heard last Sunday in Houston, the preacher suggested using the phrase, "I want to want..." As in "I want to want to volunteer more" or "I want to want to be more forgiving." The idea is that eventually, you'll want what He wants. With all the multimedia that confronts us everyday with material and ephemeral wants, it's easy to lose focus. So my focus will be on less. Less money spent. Less alcohol drunk. Less gossip. Less worrying. Less waiting in airports. etc. It's also a realistic resolution. Instead of an outright abolition, I'm focusing on a theme.
