Are you ready to make a New Year’s resolution about where you want to live a couple years from now? Or, are you still just wishing for a change in your housing situation sometime before too long?
Merriam-Webster defines a New Year’s resolution as “a promise to do something differently in the new year.” Whereas a New Year’s wish is “a good or kind desire, positive thoughts.”
Members of Cedar Co-housing are now leaving behind their past New Year’s wishes about cohousing to turn these into an ardent New Year’s resolution for 2022.
We are resolved to actively look for a building site. We have engaged a commercial land broker with development experience, and we meet regularly with a co-housing consultant to keep us moving along!
Over the holidays, I enjoyed reading here and here how established cohousing communities spend the holidays together, and am excited for such prospects with our group in the future. I encourage you to read these accounts also to get a better idea of how community works in cohousing.
So, leave your wishes behind and make a New Year’s resolution for 2022 instead! Attend one of our upcoming virtual sessions or in-person events to keep updated with our progress and to find out how to become part of our community.
Join with current explorers and members of Cedar Co-housing as we resolve to make our cohousing community a reality this year!
Then, in the coming years, we’ll be writing about how we at Cedar Cohousing community spend our holidays together – to be read by other aspiring co-housing groups. Together we can make it happen!
Happy New Year, Everyone!
