Change is overrated - A New Kind of Resolution

For the month of January, I made a vow to do all of my shopping at the local health food store. No, this is not my attempt to try to eat healthier or to shed the extra weight that I put on over the holidays.

It’s actually a means of avoidance and self-preservation. Despite what you think, my decision has nothing to do with avoiding pesticide-laden foods and toxic cosmetics and cleaners so that I can live longer (although this will be a nice bonus!).

The real reason…this is the time of year when every supermarket checkout is littered with magazines whose covers are blazoned with promises that this year will be the year that I keep and achieve my New Year’s resolutions...
