Originally, I was considering that this might be the "year of re-commitment" - to many of the principles that I've espoused on this blog. I've gotten a little sloppy in some of my green practices over the past year as I've been incredibly busy.
Frankly, "the year of re-commitment" just didn't sound that inspiring to me.
As I thought more about what I wanted the year to be like, I thought about the things I really want to commit myself to: things that make me happy like cooking, writing, and being outside. Unlike most resolutions, these wouldn't be taking fun out of life, but adding it. I thought about the "year of abundance", but that reminds me too much of those churches that say you'll make more money if you pray about it.
So I settled on "the year of more."
I want to focus on three things to start:
- more writing time
- more whole foods (not Whole Foods)
- more outside time
I think these things will have positive side effects on my health and well-being, but that's not my main focus currently. Really, I'm just trying to enjoy life more (see what I did there?)
