No worries, I’m not going to trail off into some one-dimensional epiphany that my new year resolution is to start living in the moment more often. I do it when I can, but otherwise, I like my long-term-goal oriented self. So no, in fact, I think our culture has become so obsessed with the notion of “living in the moment” that too many people are struggling with long-term commitment to anything other than social media because of the immediate gratification it supplies for a pile of things that don’t really matter, but I digress.
My point is that instead of making a one-year resolution list that’s three years worth of projects long then “accidentally” losing it two weeks later while throwing out a milkshake cup after a halfhearted workout, I'm taking a lesson from heartful artist Candy Chang and finishing just one sentence... Before I die I want to________. My goal is to focus on working towards my answer to that this year while reaching out, even to total strangers, to find out what this means for others. If you feel so inclined, I’d love to hear yours.
