No New Year's Resolutions in 2011!
I'm very excited and happy to report, that here, in my living room, there will be no new year's resolutions to speak of, wish for or worry about. It will be business (life: breathing, eating, loving, sleeping, reading, walking and talking) as usual!
Two of my yoga instructors put forth the idea that we should start the New Year with affirmations vs. resolutions as resolutions imply an ending. Your thoughts?
Hmmm, I've been thinking about this one...I don't think resolutions imply an ending, but they imply suddenly doing something differently, and I like a more slow-motion approach.
Like if you are hiking up a mountain, you just keep on walking, you don't say suddenly (unless you are very tired), "now, I wanna be at the top!", and then you are. You just keep putting one foot in front of the other and see where it leads. Its just practice, practice, practice.
Affirmations can be nice. Its good to remind ourselves of beauty....
