|Some of the bounty from our weekly food basket.|
- Steve and I started taking a parenting course that includes expressions like relationship mindfulness, radical acceptance, and opposite action. These are pretty flaky concepts, people.
- I signed up for home delivery of organic, locally grown vegetables.
- Steve and I started taking a yoga class together.
In six months or less, we'll be living off the land, shearing our own sheep, carding and spinning the wool and wearing poorly woven shawls as we embrace you in all of our deodorant-free mugginess and share our stash of gingko biloba.
Okay, probably not. But all three of these things are new to me and I like them.
The skills we're learning in the parenting course have broader applications and really do help me understand and empathize more.
The food is great - tasty and fresh and bountiful. Not to mention convenient.
Yoga was a pleasant surprise: relaxing and peaceful, which is just what I needed. And doing it with Steve made it a kind of date. [Confession: I almost wimped out on the way to the very first class, because we were late and I'd had a crappy day and just wanted to go eat comfort food. Steve gently insisted. Yay, Steve!]
I didn't set out to make these kind of changes as New Year's resolutions, but it does seem to be turning into a year of positive change.
Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go hug a few trees. See ya later!
