The One and Only Resolution for Me

Simplify. That's all. Oh, and maybe work on my slouchy posture.

Last year, my resolution was to really think about my consumption and try to purchase more mindfully. I think that resolution went over pretty well and is being integrated into my life. I joined a CSA and tried not to buy what I didn't need. I didn't always succeed, but I feel pretty good about where I'm at with it right now.

I've got a lot more ideas for stuff I want to do this year but I don't think it's resolution-fodder. For example, I'd like to do a little guerilla gardening. There's a blighted spot that's pretty close to home that could use some brightening. I'll have to check the soil because I'm sure it's like cement. I also would like to leave more of the little cards (like above) or do new cards with fortunes. I've come up with tons of ideas but haven't executed. Typical, for me. That's ok though, at least the seed is planted in my head so even if I don't do much with these projects this year, there's always next year.

Now, sit up straight!

Ani, that is beautiful. Are you making them for sale? If so, can I buy one?

I love the guerilla gardening idea. Love it. What a great way to invest in yourself, your community, and the earth!

Thanks, I blush! I just doodle them up little cards and leave them places. But since I can't leave one nearby you, I could always send you one.

Guerilla gardening--so dang cool. I'll try and take a photo sometime soon to show my 'target'.

Knitting Momma said...

Yes, take a photo! And email me at knittingmommaATgmailDOTcom b/c I would be so honored to have one of those cards!

I am totally digging this (ha ha) idea of guerilla gardening... I know few spots in town that could use some spring flowers (I have some insane cosmos seeds that can survive and grow anywhere- thanks Martha Stewart)

Happy simplified New Year
