New Year resolutions

Why wait till 1st January before making these resolutions, initiating life changes? No reason at all, but equally no reason not to do it now. Mine are easy to summarise: stay open to life; do what I can; don't take myself so seriously; learn to trust the process; be grateful for work; be grateful for everything; cherish friendships; start singing again; dance; pray and meditate; go for more country walks; continue writing; don't compare myself with others; mind my own business and don't try to fix people/things that can't be fixed; don't take responsibility for other people's mistakes - my own are quite sufficient; remember that gentle discipline is a way of self-care, not self-punishment.

Happy New Year.

Happy New Year! Great resolutions. Not sure I'll post mine because I tend to instantly subvert any intention I speak aloud! Anyway, lovely image, and I hope your new year is peachy. :-)
