January is a great time to start fresh! Clean your house, sell everything you don’t need, become a minimalist, lose twenty pounds, start giving all of your paycheck to charity, sign up for one hundred new classes at the gym, throw a dinner party every night! Become a vegan! Run twelve marathons! Never sleep!
Or does it just feel like that to us? There can be so much PRESSURE in the new year. And personally, the last thing we want is to feel more pressure. So we’re taking it a little slow. You know, like taking a month to think about resolutions and not feeling guilty about it. But taking it slow doesn’t mean doing nothing! It just means maybe biting off what we can chew instead of way too much. Can we give more to charity? Yes! All of our paycheck? Probably not. Run a few extra miles? Yes! Twelve marathons in one month? Um, no.
So here’s what we’re working on this year. Some things are big. Some things are very small. But they’re things that make us feel better, healthier, more excited.
STEPH Owner / Dreamer
I want to slow down! Appreciate nature, be present, be mindful of yes, disconnect from electronics, eat slower, and find pleasure in everything.
LAURIE Events Manager / Steph Wrangler
My resolution for 2017 is to be more adventurous in the Pacific Northwest. Explore a new neighborhood, town, city, restaurant, trail. Camp more, hike more, and spend more time outside.
MARY Director of Operations / Master of Spreadsheets
I don't really believe in resolutions, but I’m working toward hiking the Grand Canyon in March with my Mom and brother-in-law, so I am making sure I have the right gear and am in shape for that. Otherwise, it is simply the constant desire to try new things and make sure my kids grow up to be humans with whom I would like to hang out!
DIANNA Production Manager / Seamer Extraordinaire
I'm trying to suck it up and keep my sugar consumption in control! It’s always good to remind myself that I'm in charge.
CASS Graphic Designer / RPF Whisperer
This year, I want to visit more National Parks (and do my part as a citizen to make sure they stay protected!), create less waste, stop hitting the snooze button, and put gas in my car before it's completely empty.
So that's us. This is where we are. What are you working on?
