A new year, a fresh start

"Just one year of love
Is better than a lifetime alone"

I'm not good at resolutions, but I definitely do need to make a few changes in my life. I feel I'm not truly being myself. I don't really know who I am. So here we go, I'm committing to one year of loving myself. And, since rules are made to be broken, I'm giving myself guidelines which I'll try to follow. I may not be able to, but that's not failure, it's a chance for tomorrow.

30 minutes of sunshine/outdoorsyness every day.
30 minutes of action (dogwalking?) every day.
30 minutes of noncomputer/nonTV leisure every day.
3 vegetarian meals a week, could be a veggie day, could be 3 dinners.
Brownbagging it. No more drivethru lunches
Go to bed before 1am, even if I can sleep in tomorrow.
Try something new every month. More often if opportunity arises.
Learn to dress like a grown-up.

I'll come back and add more as I think of them. In the spirit of starting fresh, I'm fasting tomorrow. I may keep it up into the new year, but as I've never gone without food I don't know how my body will take it. As of this moment, I'm really committing to this idea. I'm giving myself one year. For one year, I'll be good for myself.
