To qualify as crunch-worthy, I think the items should be related to environmental sustainability, ethics, parenting, and health. Ethics, of course, could be a wide ranging area, including things like peace, boycotting unethical businesses (as I had to remind my husband today that we’re boycotting Auto Zone for their anti-gay tactics when he wanted to check a car battery there; we have other shops we can go to), or simply standing up against injustice when we witness it.
I can recall pounding this meal, back in high school, typically before my dance practice and yep, the last thing I wanted to be doing during warm ups was calisthenics and stretches. I would have preferred just sitting on the sidelines, benching it. Incredibly thirsty, because of all the salt, fat and sugar I had just eaten.
Take flying, for example. I love flying. I cannot imagine what it would be like to live a life without ever having done it. But I know plenty of people who are so scared to fly that they’ll never experience that joy—or travel somewhere incredible due to that limitation. Talk about missing out! My father conquered his fear of flying when I was in high school and he thought it was pretty cool, even if he was still scared—and still prefers not to fly. At least he can say he did it, and he won’t regret having not done it in his lifetime.
