Many Greenbelters have made it through day one of the New Year with resolutions in tow. But some folks still haven't come up with one — and may hang it up altogether.
Before giving up on a resolution, see if you can get inspiration from what some of your friends and neighbors have decided. From a City Council member to a Greenbelt Homes, Inc. board member to Patch freelancers and folks across Greenbelt, including yours truly — here's what some Greenbelt folk have decided to take on:
Lore Rosenthal: To start going back to Curves more regularly!
Laura Moore: No more animals. Three cats and one dog in a GHI home is plenty!
Greg Varda: My New Year's resolution is to eat a healthier diet and exercise more. It's as simple as that.
Don Comis: 1) Write five hours a day for at least five days a week. 2) Write one letter a week to my mother. (Don had 15 resolutions in all.)
Sheila Maffay-Tuthill: 1) I'm going to do a lot more outdoor activities, like biking and camping, with my boys in the new year. 2) Stop forgetting to bring my hemp bags to the coop.
Anna Socrates: I'm going to set my inner magpie free and clean and organize the scary closet in my second bedroom where I keep my crafting supplies. (She explained magpies are birds that collect and hoard shiny things.)
Konrad Herling: I will continue no caffeine for the new year.
Molly Lester: 1) To get to know the stories of more Greenbelters. 2) To introduce the Greenbelt Community to two of my favorite community-based performing arts centers, Joe's Movement Emporium in Mt. Rainier, Md. and the Atlas Theater located on the revitalized H Street corridor in northeast Washington, D.C.
Bailey Henneberg: Finish writing one of the fiction novels that I started years ago. Just have to decide whether to finish the Sci-fi, the spy story or the empath detective novel.
