Defining Slim Pickin's
By definition, "Slim Pickings" is a small amount left after others have taken a share. I've always been a "cup half full" kind of person, so I wanted to choose a meaningful phrase that can at first glance seem negative, but turn it around in a positive way. That actually describes my outlook on so many things. So if you break down the phrase, SLIM, well that speaks for itself. Defined as "of small diameter or thickness in proportion to the height or length, slender. One definition of PICK is to remove bit by bit, or to eat sparingly. I wanted something that I could explain if necessary to where it makes sense to someone else, but mainly, something that got MY attention and was an easy catch phrase that I could use as a reminder to myself of my journey.
