I can think of at least ten things that qualify as standard, I’m-going-to-change something, new year’s resolutions for me, this year. This post, however, is recognition of the good things I’m already doing & have good reason to maintain. Thanks, Christine, for the idea! It dials in directly to a sankalpa I recently chose – “I am steady.”
It’s also a useful exercise in santosha: acknowledgement & contentment with what’s going on right now with me. This is not to say that life is perfect and there aren’t problems in the world that I can help solve, but … well, I am fortunate, and am doing okay.
