embrace / refrain started at the beginning of 2012 as a year long project. I had fasted from food and pop in the past, and realized that in our commercialized culture, I could benefit from fasting from all sorts of things. I had also failed at many attempts to form new habits, and wanted to find new and successful ways of doing so. As a bonus, I wanted to start a blog and learn web development in WordPress. So I started embrace / refrain. Each month I either embrace a practice in hopes of forming beneficial habits or skills, or I refrain from something that needs to be cut out for awhile. Along the way, I’ve been blogging about my successes and failures.
In May 2012, I embraced blogging on a more regular basis and started writing about a greater variety of interests. I’ll continue to do that alongside of my monthly embrace / refrain projects.
