Happy New Year! I hope you're on your way to recovery from the last few weeks. They've been a doozie, at least for us!
The other day in yoga we talked about a book called The Four Agreements by don Miguel Ruiz. It's a short book, simple to read, and incredibly profound in its simplicity. Rather than make resolutions, I usually spend some time in January thinking about changes I'm ALWAYS trying to make - not just at this time of year when people are going to become perfect in 10 days and then forget all about it and end up feeling like failures.
I have no desire for that. I do, however, have a desire for peace, joy, love, and contentment. This reading made great sense to me, and I hope you'll find some comfort in it as well.
