Try

What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010? What happened when you did / didn’t go for it?

I’m going to start at the end: one thing I wanted to try this year is living further from the city than I ever have before. I’m doing it now, and I’m not sure what the results are yet! I love the beauty of where I live, and I miss being closer to the majority of my social circle.

I also ended up trying a bunch of other things: rock climbing, eating meat for the first time in over a decade, being single. But those ones I didn’t set out to do.

I didn’t set out with a significant list of things to try, though, and I think it’s a kind of great idea. So here are a few things I’d like to try in 2011:

  • Running, which I haven’t tried more than a couple of times since recovering from my long encounter with a broken foot
  • Making something completely ridiculous, which might well be a cake for my friend Alanya’s wedding celebration
  • Taking a sabbatical, which I’m making some plans to do very soon
  • Making some significant dietary changes, which feels hard and also like the right thing to try for my health and energy and well-being
  • How about you?
