I've done plenty of resolutions in the past, but haven't made any this year--so far. How about you? I believe in fresh starts, and the new year seems prime for that one. I also believe that you have to imagine the future in order to have creative control of your life. Resolutions sort of help you do that.
Here's mine, all wrapped up neat.
I hereby resolve
to live each day in full appreciation of just how lucky I am. As much as I think I'm in control of my life, control is just an illusion. Life is constantly being hit by unexpected tsunamis.
to be quick to laugh, slow to anger, anxious to forgive and be forgiven.
to be generous in my response to the needs of others.
Okay, I'm ready. Bring on the New Year.
