This year, I’m not putting together a list of New Year’s resolutions.
I’m just going to devote myself to one single goal: instead of holding so tightly to the way I think things should happen or worrying what might happen, I’ll instead spend my time more deeply experiencing how they DO happen.
This year, I want to relax my tight little Penelope fist a bit and just feel the moments of my life more fully. Of course, I’ll still work toward my goals and hope for my desired outcomes, but I resolve to spend less time fretting about the what ifs and more time dealing with the situation at hand.
This will be extraordinarily difficult, I know. It’s almost terrifying, in a strange way. But I’m committed to giving it my best effort.
Anybody else want to join me?
