Too Much

Too Much

“I eat too much
I drink too much
I want too much
Too Much” – Dave Matthews Band

I swear I have not been on a complete Dave Matthews Band kick lately, but some of the songs that have been circulating through the random shuffle have hit me in a way that has had some real meaning behind it. This gem from Dave Matthews has really summed up a feeling and sense I have been getting from a lot of different angles lately.


In America, we really do eat too much. Many of us drink too much. And in the end, a lot of us all want too much. So I have made my life simpler these days. I definitely only drink once in a while, maybe once per month or two. I have started eating less (although I may have gone too far that direction, and now it is more about what I eat more than how much). And I have very little wants. There is however a lot of wants that I have that I truly enjoy. So this year, I plan on only taking on projects I feel inspired by and get me excited.


(Almost) Everything in moderation is truly a good motto to live by. If you want to splurge here or there on something, go for it. But make the majority of your lifestyle about the good stuff most of the time. And definitely don’t bite off more than you can chew. (See what I did there?) Take on an extra project or two, but make sure you love it and are passionate about it. Make sure you can get behind it and put all of your efforts into it. And remember, too much is never a good thing.
