Quality over Quantity is a concept I have always subscribed to... at least in theory and in words.
Truth be told, my shopping, eating/drinking habits, photography/video-recording, and social media posting over the years would indicate otherwise.
We all know actions speak louder than words. So I am slowly making progress in this area of life--- prioritizing quality over quantity.
I can honestly tell you that this principal has been carefully applied to my friendships and personal relationships, which may be one of the reasons most of my closest friends have been LIFELONG friendships.
Life is full of choices. #choosewisely
Continuing with this Philippians 4 life of minimalism, in which I practice quality over quantity CONTENTMENT in all aspects of my life, ONE DAY AT A TIME.
I still have a long way to go with this; but for now I carefully consider before making a purchase "Do I really need that?"
Whether it's a food or beverage I enjoy, or a clothing item that makes me feel good, I have always held the philosophy "If one is good, than fifteen is even better." ;)
Today I practice a philosophy that sounds more like this... "I really enjoy this _________, so I am going to mindfully savor and experience every sensual pleasure of this _______ in this present moment, and not need anymore of this ________ for NOW."
A strange phenomenon occured this morning during the recording of Strategies 74 & 75 of Don't Sweat The Small Stuff by Richard Carlson, PhD narrated by me on The Grateful Gwen Channel.

Toward the end of the video, my brain could not process how to pronounce the word "Strategy" correctly. After recently watching the insightful, poignant movie STILL ALICE
staring Julianne Moore about early onset Alzheimer's Disease, I may be a tad bit paranoid, but observing her symptoms and knowing my family medical history makes me a tiny bit nervous about brain malfunctions like the one I experienced this morning. Like her character, I am documenting my observations in writing, which is one of my selfish objectives for starting this blog and this YouTube channel in the first place. In much the same way as the 2004 film THE NOTEBOOK, I am choosing to capture all these precious experiences in a way that I can be reminded of, should the time come that I am no longer able to remember them.
