Don't be discouraged by my success
How is that for a pretentious click baity first line? Haha
If you fail occasionally at reducing your waste, don't stress. Focus on making an effort and constantly challenging yourself. And fail, but then try again. That's the goal. Not perfection.
If my success at being "zero waste" ever makes you feel bad, remember that it's the effort that matters. And instead of comparing yourself to my zero waste habits, compare yourself to my driving habits, because that's where I fail often and struggle to stay consistent. Look! We're all failures! Yay!
After being in Toronto, Vancouver and Victoria and using their public transit I realized I need to be less of a baby and stop driving so much in Saskatoon.
I've been kind of sort of trying to drive less but I have been failing a lot. And that's ok!
I started biking in the summer (which was actually a big deal because I'm scared of biking and I'm super proud of myself for the effort I did put in), but after my summer holiday I lost my edge and started driving again.
Then it got cold and I used it as an excuse (Even though I bought snow pants). I walked to work a bit but I kept going back to my car, using any small excuse to justify driving.
With seasonal depression coming in, I'm late pretty much every day now so it's really easy to use that as an excuse to drive instead of walk (Even though my boss is okay with me being late in the winter) (Get yourself a boss who is understanding about mental illness). So I bought a bus pass and I'm going to keep trying. I also needed to make a public announcement because that always makes me more accountable.
What will you try to work on? Does talking about it make you more accountable?
