We all live our lives by our own values. I think it is important to know what those values are thereby living our lives more meaningfully. For most, values change over time. I know that by living with my hubbend I now value recycling more. I know that living in Portland as a mother has made me more aware of the green movement and buying sustainable toys for my son.
I have also turned into somewhat of a locavore. I have realized that while I value organic foods, I am going to pick a local product over an organic product should I be forced to do so.
Having this recent piano/moving fiasco has made me realize how important music is to my life. I grew up with music. The hubbend did not. And while he has learned to appreciate music and is a super rad dancer, he has no idea about the theory of music. I missed having instruments in my home. I want those things in my life and for my son.
So. Back to food nutrition. It is important to me. Probably partially due to where we live, but I have developed into a local eating, mostly organic, mostly vegetarian, physically moving woman. I am not interested in politics (although I know I should be). I would rather read a book on nutrition and food politics. I would rather read a book about emotional eating and why there seem to be two “me”s. The me who eats well and the me who will stop at nothing to get.that.sugar.
What are your values? Think about it. It is important.
