New Year’s resolutions get a lot of bad press. I’m actually a fan of resolutions if only because they’re an excuse to conduct a re-examination of self – kind of like cleaning out the junk drawer. The key is to care just enough to turn resolutions into action, but not care so much that you flog yourself for not adhering to them. Easier said than done.
I’ve made my resolutions for 2014 already but instead of sharing them, I’ve decided to concentrate on my wishes for family, friends and all for The New Year.
First, I wish you love. Whatever form love takes, its calming, affirming force is good for your life.
Curiosity. The world is huge, life is huge. Stay curious and explore.
Open-mindedness. The training wheels to curiosity. Opening thoughts opens doors to possibility.
Hope. Without hope, there is no future.
Connectedness. On some level, everything we do is because of or for someone else, even when we insist we are doing it only for ourselves.
Passion. No matter what feeds your passion, a life with passion is always better.
Health. You can’t choose your genes, but you can take care of what you have.
Prosperity. A life of riches is filled with more than just money.
May all of these wishes lead you to my biggest wish for you: happiness.
