30 Day Challenge: Give up meat

Normally people make resolutions for the new year, not starting on February 1st. Well count me as not normal :) Besides, most resolutions are made and forgotten all before the end of January anyway.

There was a time that I would look at any new adventure or project and think wow this is so cool and I couldn’t wait to dig in. I would dig in so hard at times that it would encompass me, it would take my entire focus and nothing else around me mattered. I would get energized and inspired by something new.

Lately however, everything I see and hear and do is just the same. Like a routine or I have been there and done that! Mundane is a good word to explain the feeling.
