    I suppose that I've been fairly resourceful in 2011. For me that's about eating organically as much as possible without busting my already tight budget. I've continued my membership in a local organic food buying club, which has helped immensely in keeping costs down without compromising the health benefits.

    Resourcefulness is about living creatively, keeping a flexible mind and an open heart toward whatever arises. So I'm wide open to just showing up for 2012 and handling whatever it asks of me.

    I have to admit that I seem to have an issue around admitting to being resourceful, so in order to catch up and move on with the others I am going to just accept that and move on.
