New New Year’s Resolutions

Each year on this day, we focus on our shortcomings and with short-lived enthusiasm we set our new year’s resolutions, often the same ones we had last year. Lose weight. Join a gym. Exercise more. Find a new job. Travel. Spend less. Get organized.

With a renewed and sustained hope, here’s a new top 10 resolution list to consider:

  1. Let go of the past and be present to the blessings of each day, there are many
  2. Forgive yourself and others
  3. Lighten up and laugh
  4. Spend 10 minutes each morning setting the course for the day in quiet prayer and meditation, listening deeply
  5. Go above and beyond, no strings attached or expectation of “return on investment”
  6. Move your body, mind and spirit each day to improve your whole self
  7. Slow down and take life in instead of pass it by, single-task
  8. Love unconditionally, it’s the only way to truly love
  9. Deepen faith and discover your spirit that longs to be set free, it’s in there quietly asking to go out and play
  10. Enjoy each day with the innocence and delight of a child

Cast your light, let the light in and fill this year with wonder, gratitude and joy, one day at a time.

    I like to think of them as ‘suggestions’ not ‘resolutions’… lol
    Happy New Year to you.
