It is 2010, a new year, and new decade. I feel like I should set a major, life changing resolution for the coming year and decade. John has two resolutions. The first is to get more exercise and the second is to watch less TV. I can live with the more exercise. John is in good shape, but he realizes the importance of weekly, if not daily, exercise. I tend to agree.
I do not wish to set my resolution as either of those things. I feel passionate about neither. (Although, I will go and exercise with him. It will be good for me). After my 1994/1995 resolution of going vegetarian, there is really nothing that I can resolve to do that will top going vegetarian. It was the best resolution I ever made and I have stuck with it for all these years. It was a major life change and I will never go back. The resolution helped my health, my body, my mental health, the planet, the environment, and animals. Nothing else can compare.
Do I really need to top that resolution? Probably not. I just do not feel motivated enough to make a huge resolution and announce it to the blogosphere. I have several small resolutions in mind. One is of a personal nature that I do not want to announce. If I can accomplish my resolution, which might not be possible in one year, the end result will be overall better health mentally and physically.
The second is that I want to take more trips. Weekend trips, day trips, week trips, etc. My 2009 was lacking in vacations and getaways and by December, I severely needed a mental break. In 2010 I want to go places with John, with friends, and with family. I want to visit Ashville again, the beach, wineries, etc. Anyone want to plan a short trip with me?
I guess that is good enough. Happy 2010!
