Future Friendly

Lately there is a lot of talk about “Going Green”. People are learning to reduce, reuse and recycle. I love the idea, and am making my own small strides in trying to save the planet.
There’s a Native American proverb that says “We did not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we are just borrowing it from our children.” I absolutely love that saying. It’s exactly how I feel and what inspires me to make changes in our day to day living.
That’s why I want to start an effort to rid the world of the phrase “going green” and adopt the phrase “future friendly”.  I saw it on a commercial the other day.  Don’t you just love it?  I think it is a much better description of what I am doing and reminds me why I am putting out the effort.  Going green just makes me think of grass.  While I love grass, and think it is also worth saving, it just doesn’t bring up the same emotions that Future Friendly does.

So what do you think?  Which phrase do you like better?

I can’t tell you how many times I have done this.  Sat down to write on a blog.  Actually, maybe I can.  At least 4.  Could be more, but those are the ones I can remember.

All those times I started with the wrong incentive.  At least that’s what all the successful bloggers tell me.  It was always to make some money or to become known with lots of readers.  I’m not gonna lie, those things are still incentives.  The big change is that this time I want to write.  I want to write about anything and everything.  Mainly I want to write about what I am hoping will become my “life turnaround”.

You see there have been some things weighing on me lately.  They are pretty random things, but things that I want to change about me and the way I live.  I have always wanted to write.*  I have always wanted to have a blog of my own.  That’s when it hit me like a completely obvious ton of bricks.  Start a blog documenting how I deal with those things that are weighing on me.

*It’s here that I should mention that I have never been a writer in my life.  I have started the occasional journal here and there, but in no way have I ever been a consistent writer.  Sensing a trend here?  It’s one of those romantic notions that I have always wanted to attempt.  Please bare bear with me as I “find my voice” and figure things out like if that should have been bare or bear. 

Enter Sarah Well Rounded.  It’s not going to be a blog about me becoming physically rounder.  At least I hope not.  I do hope that it will help me become a little less round in that sense.  It will be about my adventures in dabbling with becoming a figurative well-rounded person.  I want to try out so many things – like minimalism, crafting, figuring out if those two things can even go together, healthier eating, my trials and tribulations as well as celebrations as a wife and mother, becoming a bit greener, and so many other things.  I’m not expecting it to be a particularly helpful blog to others, except in the sense that some might feel a little less lonely as they are trying to find themselves as well.

 Well that’s it.  My first post is done!  My journey begins…
