I'm susceptible to all the articles and pins that tell me how to look better and feel better. It's everywhere this time of year. Truthfully, after holiday travel and indulgences, I look forward to a simplified diet but my family still expects meals on the table each evening. What's a girl to do? My goal is to truly learn to cook well and wisely for my family. The goal is flavorful and nutritious fare within a reasonable time frame and budget. There is going to be more protein and whole foods with less starches and sweets. I'm not expecting it to happen overnight, just looking for progress, so I'm going to quantify this by stating that I'll incorporate four new menus into our cycle of meals.
This consideration of things that need to be addressed is necessary for me. I need to take time to consider the direction things are moving in my home and life so that it doesn't just happen, but is directed by my values and true goals. I no longer expect major overhauls or instant changes on January 1. Instead, I seek to make note of what is working, what needs to shift and start moving in those directions. Year in and year out, I like seeing the shape of my life as it is refined to reflect me.
Do you make resolutions or set goals? Do you choose a word or a focus each year? How do you keep on-track for daily choices that mesh with your long term vision?
