I started the year, as many people do, with thoughts of New Year’s Resolutions. I must admit that, for a variety of reasons, I am not a fan of these lists. For one thing, life is constantly changing — things happen, priorities shift — and I don’t see how a list of resolutions made in January could possibly remain relevant past February. And for another thing, I think that our Inner Critics use these lists like a weapon to beat the self-esteem right out of us.
My first resolution of the year was to find a better way to set New Year’s Resolutions.
