Yup. I’m giving up “too.” Too, as in I’m too tired to exercise. I’m feeling too bad to eat well. I’m too fat to wear a swimsuit. This is battle against obesity is too hard. I’m too tired to get out of bed. I’m too busy to spend time with my family. It’s too hot/cold/wet to go outside for a walk. Too, as in I’ll have dessert, too. I’ll take on that project, too. “Too” should mean an addition to something, but for me that word has turned into something that takes away from the life I could have. So, I’m giving up too! I’m going to leave some Post-It notes around with the word “too” on them. Maybe then I can catch myself saying “too” and really consider whether the “too” is adding or subtracting from the life I want to live.
