An experiment in conscious living.

Commitment #19

“I will sharpen blades and tools to make them last longer.”

With this long, holiday weekend slated for some major yard work, it didn’t take long for a dull pair of clippers to cripple my enthusiasm, at least for trimming the hedges.  I’ll admit my first reaction was to say, “These clippers suck; let’s get a new pair.” Still, many tree trimming hours later, they remained. Rather than giving into a wasteful habit, I committed to tolerating them until I could restore their usefulness by having them tightened and sharpened locally. While I’m at it, I think I’ll have the machete sharpened too.

Join me in making this lifestyle commitment at Kanu Hawai`i.
