(This is a peaceful landscape photo to reflect my peaceful-2013-innerself landscape)
In the spirit of the new year, 2013 (by the way my favorite Christmas present was that I won't EVER have to see a sarcastic facebook post about the Mayan Apocalypse again) I thought I'd write on resolutions.
I'm not a huge fan of strict life changes. Unless it's heroin or something like that. Then I'm all, "Cold Turkey, mofo!" But generally I'm more of the type that eases into things. With that being said there are quite a few lifestyle changes that Jonathan and I have decided to make this year.
Firstly, since I have moved to California I've been styling Jonathan for the show he does for Billboard Music. I get allotted a substantial amount of money a month to spend on his clothes. With this money in hand I have realized I very much have a voice in the retail industry. Lately I have been trying to avoid fast fashion retailers with poor business practices. It is not only an ethical issue, but an issue of the quality of the threads we choose to put on our backs. Plus there are tons of small business retailers that could use support! So this year I will try my damnedest to invest in quality instead of quantity.
The big one: No more cigarettes. I am still, however, getting my nicotine fix with an electronic cigarette. Thus far it's doing the trick.
JUICE! We're trying to juice every morning. This is absolutely necessary to take place of the coffee and cigarettes...seriously....we juice to poop.
Then there's all the personal stuff:
Start speaking positive things into existence.
Ease up on the self-guilt.
More phone calls, less facebook.
and so fourth.
Does this seem unobtainable? What are your resolution(s)?
