Turn New Year's Resolutions into Revelations

Turn New Year’s Resolutions into Revelations

New Year’s resolutions tend to be about wanting more of something we desire and/or less of something we do not, and while they surely have their noble side, they also often emanate from subtle and less subtle forms of perceived lack, scarcity, comparison, self-flagellation, and judgment.

These are qualities we may want to endeavor not to perpetuate and strengthen when we make our commitments this year. How about making ‘the means more of the ends’ by putting gratefulness rather than scarcity at the center of the resolutions we make this year?
