I bring all this up to give context to a phenomenon. It took me nearly a year after I made this resolution to actually stop accepting plastic grocery bags. One year! Why does it take us so long to change our behavior? My wife and I now always keep reusable bags in the trunk of our car. Why did it take me a year to get in the habit of storing reusable bags in my trunk?!
The song Words Leave Out The Rest was born out of the desire to actualize resolve. To be who we know we are and who we know we should be. To walk the walk. To follow our sense of right.
