You can't go back and change the beginning,
but you can start where you are
and change the ending...

Good one solemate....
“If ever you feel God is taking away something from your hand… don’t get sad. He is only emptying your hand so you can receive something better

In the meantime...

“In life don’t think about the pain, we went through, but the lessons it taught, not how much we’ve been hurt & cried but how much we’re blessed and loved by God.”

Yes, now I need a good laugh, how about the rest of you?

oops, I think I might resemble that remark...

Ever attend a 2 hour meeting, event or briefing that was so bad that afterwards you thought to yourself:
- that's two hours of my life that I'll never get back...
- less of their wasteful use of my time; could have been more productive use of my time...
- or, thanks John - now after two hours of your brief we are now all somehow dumber (it's a joke)...
logic being: less of your confounding notions swirling around in my brain - would make me more smarter... hehe...

Actually, sometimes less is more. For example, if a crack is forming on a piece of metal, drilling a hole at the end of the crack will stop the cracking and thereby increase the strength of the metal. Less sometimes actually is more.

Not following that logic. Seems to me, if you drill the hole to stop the cracking, you end up with less cracking, so, less is still less......not more......right?

There is less metal but the beam is stronger. Less is sometimes more, hate to break it to you :)

Less is more when more would be overkill.

Example: I could post a big wall of text explaining "less is more" but instead I'm just using two sentences.

So, by the same logic, more could be less. But, seeing that less is more, more is actually more than it could be less because it is more...or less. ;)

Saying less, regardless of the effect, is STILL less, and not more............. :)

I had an epiphany last night (yes I know it's a few weeks early for Epiphany). With all the tiny earphone technology we have today, people might actually think I'm talking on my cell phone when I'm really thinking out loud (what the unenlightened would call talking to myself). I suddenly feel so much more free to have good conversations with myself in public.

Less negativity creates more opportunities for positivity.
Less assumptions that result in judgement creates for more positive relationships. 😇
