Yesterday my family and I met up with our good friends for a hike in Redwood Park, in the Oakland Hills above our home. It's pretty unbelievable that this piece of nature is in our backyard. I spend a lot of time driving around, running endless errands, carting kids, and cooped up in the house working on projects and working on work...I seldom I get out there to clear my head and run away from it all. I'm not one for resolutions, but I think a new year is a time of self-contemplation.
At the beginning of class, my yoga instructor asks us to set an intention for our practice, which is tough, I always feel a little silly talking to myself that way. I think of resolutions that way. I don't need to quit smoking or lose 20lbs. I do think I need to take more care, with myself and the people I love and of the things that matter most to me... Resolution done. Check.
Happy 2012 and THANK YOU for reading Make Do!
