"Take good care of yourself."
Typically, at the turn of the year I've posted some thoughts about how to approach the coming year. This year, I've decided, because of this post, to post my own resolutions.
My Resolutions for 2015
Listen more. Read more novels. Read more ancient literature. Learn, not to know more, but to live better.
Sleep more. Be more physically active; spend more time outside than inside. Cook more. Take more cooking classes.
Pray more. Spend more time with people who have gone through trauma and hardship. Practice integrity and generosity. Say No to meaningless distractions, and, Yes to things that are acts of gratitude.
Family / Friends:
Talk with my children every week. Be better connected to my cousins and aunts. Make my home a place of welcome and retreat. Love others as I wish to be loved. Make new friends, care for old ones.
Restart my business with fresh purpose and initiative. Write and publish “The Story We Tell Ourselves”. Learn how to generate new streams of income in a changing economy.
In a couple weeks, I'll have more to say about some of this.
May your 2015 bring you, your families, friends and colleagues opportunities to make a difference that matters that are filled with hope, joy, love and peace.
