Care2 Members Share Their New Year’s Resolutions (and non-) Page 7
We have some thoughtful, committed people here in the Care2 community – which is no surprise. Take a look – and post yours! We’ll start a brand new page when we get around ten more! This is page 7.
There are so many resolutions I can make!! But I’ll stick to this because I’ve never gone wrong with it: I ask, this year, for the strength to always do the next right thing…
I resolve to eat with sense and restraint, remembering the great numbers of children, women and men who do not have enough calories to sustain them….I will not waste by over-eating.
I resolve to be more respectful of my life and the life around me.
I resolve to be more cheerful as I have so little reason to be otherwise.
Here’s an easy resolution for the New Year: If you’re planning to bring a pet into your home, please adopt instead of buying. There are so many wonderful animals waiting at shelters for someone to save them. They are sweet, smart, happy, and just waiting to fill your life with joy. Please convince your friends to a…lso adopt. If everyone adopted and instead of purchasing animals, we could empty the shelters.
If you absolutely can’t add another cat or dog, consider volunteering at your local shelter. If you just can’t be around the animals, they no doubt have something you can do from home, such as computer work or thank you call/notess or washing laundry. Just ask. Or even write a letter to the editor encouraging people to adopt a homeless pet. Or … See Moretake wet pet food to them. Please explore this. It would take so little of your time, but could mean the difference between life and death for a cat or dog. Thanks!
I want to be serious about putting in a garden this summer and get lawn in our backyard. I want to complete my at home training so that when my unemployment runs out I will have a job. I don’t want to work in a cube farm anymore.
To continue spiritual practices, walking, community work (when we’ve a car working again!), support Shell to Sea (www.corribsos.com ), Amnesty International actions, & Ray Hanania’s peace project for Israel & Palestine……& de-clutter a bit. I should be thankful that I’ve no talent, or there wouldn’t be time for everything! Keep smiling, folks!
In the new year I want to take good care of my body physically and spiritually. I want to make more time for drawing, painting, writing, and photography. I loved all these things in school and I have stopped doing them… I promise myself I will take more time to create art!
To further develop my spirituality, learn healthy humility, show each of my dogs and cats they are loved, help conserve wildlife especially wolves.
To open the valve in my heart everytime I find my self being judgemental. It reminds me to send love instead of negative thoughts. When I do that my whole being changes.
