I'm ready to go green, but I don't want to change my lifestyle.
While I'll love to pretend these inconsistencies are global observations, the truth is, they are a bit more personal for me than that. I think that life is full of things we aspire to, or want to value, that are just harder to play out when the rubber meets the road. It's interesting to be on the other end of it, when the world esteems my pregnancy, but is short with my kids because my kids are short of perfect. But then I think of the ways that I don't hold to my own values, and how I voice a passion for something that I don't live up to, or have the patience to see through to completion.
