I have this six day a week yoga resolution. And I NEVER feel like doing it. It’s an act of will to force it on myself (almost) every day. Makes me wonder, is the resolution about exercise, or about getting used to forcing myself to do something I’m really not in the mood for?
Another thought – what does it mean to be conservative? Is it conservative according to the people you know, or conservative according to some absolute measure, literal, like conserving wealth so it never decreases. Adjusting your life so your net worth is ever increasing, and there’s a certain age where you don’t have to work but you have enough wealth to not be a burden on others. If it’s the former, then all you have to do is be less wasteful than the people around you, but that doesn’t guarantee you any fixed future.
verb (used with object), conserved, conserving.
1. to prevent injury, decay, waste, or loss of: Conserve your strength for the race.
2. to use or manage (natural resources) wisely; preserve; save: Conserve the woodlands.
That’s the definition of conserve.
