This is a strange day to do something new, isn't it? The truth is, I've been thinking about this page for some time. What is it they say about good intentions? And haven't I asked the same question here before?
I'm pushing myself to write you today because I would like to avoid the cliche of saying I will start tomorrow/next year/as a resolution.
This time of year I get extremely introspective and nostalgic. I like to look back; I like to look forward. Both can be positive experiences as long as I don't linger too long. My goal is to assess what went well, what didn't, what I wish I'd done more of, and what I'd like to focus on in the coming year. It doesn't have to happen this time of year, but for me it's a good time for nostalgia anyway so I roll with it.
My goal for the coming year is to focus more on the things that are important to me: my favorite relationships, activities, qualities, and work. This blog is one of those things.
I'd also like to take care of each day, well, each day, rather than letting things pile. But that's another story.
This is important to me because I have things I want to tell you, and this is the best way I know how to do it without clogging up your Twitter feeds. It's bothered me to have neglected this page, but perfectionism and overplanning (procrastination's sneaky predecessors) got the best of me for a while. For that reason I don't really have an outline or a path I plan to follow yet, which seems like a really good way to lose your interest right off the bat. For now, just know I plan to be here more. I plan to talk about things I care a lot about. I want to help. I think maybe I can.
You know what? I want to be at least one voice of calm and reassurance and rationality on the internet when it comes to food and nutrition. Of course, if you know me, you know I won't necessarily be calm about some of these things because I get frustrated with the nonsense that is mostly designed to sell products by making people feel worse about themselves. So sometimes, I guess I'll be the voice that say "NO STAHP YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO ALL THAT CRAZINESS!!!"
Anyway, just please don't make any resolutions to do any cleanses this year.
That's all I got today. I started. Maybe I'll see you tomorrow.
Maybe I should've written this in my private moleskine instead of on my professional website. What do you think?
