January is assumed to be the time of the year to make resolutions... make lists of dos and don'ts for the year ahead. Nothing wrong with the concept but I don't know if it's realistic.. at all..
Aren't we all living a continuum? Why are we then discrete about our resolutions, binary even?!
Why not aim for the fluid and dance with the greys?
It is indeed easier, I grant, to be, shall we say, 'motivated' by everyone around us to make our own wish lists albeit to better our lives. But then, does it make it just transient and superficial.
I do too. And, then I realise that never really works for me. Because, I forgot about one important variable... ME! Yep, that's it.. I am a variable. For that reason alone, not much I plan at the start of the year holds for more than even three months!
The thing is I have no intention of losing my variability, which, I will narcissistically call as versatility (who is to argue with me?! ;-))
So, this year, as well, I made a list. I have not torn it up yet. Instead, I am choosing to use it as a 'guide' rather than a rigid rule :)
I resolve to live ... WELL.. :)
haha.. Well is varying definition isn't it?! ;-)
For starters, I am doing the healthy bit, which hopefully will be here to stay! In that spirit, I leave you with a smoothie of fruits and homemade yogurt. Nothing beats watching cultures play their magic on a bit of milk!
