A year ago, possibly today, I posted about my view on New Year’s resolutions. I like to focus on things I want to try out, something new to embrace as the new year (Gregorianly speaking) starts.
Last year, I vowed to attend one live event per month. Some of which even were blogged about here. It was a varied list, including: bellydance, plays, opera (first time ever), laser show, beluga and otter shows at the aquarium, restaurant band, friends playing with Fimo, classic plays and modern ones, parade, air show, and the list actually goes on from there.
This year, I vow to cook something new each and every month.
This should balance nicely between my holy-fuck-how-am-I-going-to-ever-survive-the-psychotic-busy-of-2013 and determination to learn something new this year for pure fun.
I’ve been edging into the land of cooking more anyway so this isn’t precisely a stretch.
Did you notice it? I just gave away the secret to New Year’s resolution successes. I’m embracing something I already am interested and have already started working on. It’s a bit of a stretch to succeed, but not much of one, and it’s something I honestly want to do and already am doing. I’m just going to do more of it, and more consistently. A little push in my already direction.
And January is taken care of already! But as with last year’s resolution, the month only improves if I fulfill the resolution more than once. Or as many times as I feel like. It just doesn’t let me be so lazy that I let my desire drift off my awareness and the intention disappear into the void of the forgotten.
Oh, and what was it? A simple quesadilla. No recipe, just a simple adding of ingredients to make a nummy lunch. One that I could have easily done years before and just never got up the gumption/intention/nerve to do it (I’m a shy cook sometimes and hesitant to ‘wing’ it).
Do you have a New Year’s resolution? Is it going to be easy? hard?
Or do you live the land of ‘resolution is to have no resolutions’? A land I am familiar with and frequently enjoy. Though I’m finding I like the challenge of this newer methodology of mine.
Regardless of plans, I wish you all a 2013 filled with satisfaction of needs, exploration of dreams, and a movement towards your greater Path.
Blessings of the deep and wild to you all.
