A friend was trying to come up with a word or phrase to be her inspiration/motivation for her goals for the upcoming year. I decided I wanted to do the same, because I am original like that.
On the third day of this new year, I've finally settled on mine:
twenty pages of a handful of resolutions (god, i love making those...it's an illness), but I wanted to find a phrase that would encompass all of them and keep me on track in a grander kind of way. I thought this might help me remember the reason that I'm (trying to) exercise more, eat more healthily, parent with heart, make time for the things I really love, and communicate more compassionately. All of these things will help me to do more good in the world and do it better.
Do good. And do better.
This one has made a NY commitment to baby wearing. Or, Elmo-wearing. He wears him kangaroo-style.
I don't question his nurturing tendencies.
