This holiday season, Morgane was enchanted with the 12 days of Christmas song. I think the repetition is what appeals to a child, but not necessarily to an adult after quite a few rounds and getting hoarse. Anyway, in honor of this song, I decided to do 12 days of New Year’s resolutions. Is 12 too many? I don’t think so. And I’d love to have you follow along and add yours here too, in keeping with whatever the day’s theme ends up being. I can promise you they won’t be hard, and they will be fun. They may not appear to be drastic or hugely life-changing at first glance, but the potential for that will be there; it’s all what you do with it, right?
#1: Food Gratitude. There’s been a lot of good eating going on at our house. Although we typically complain about overeating during this season, with the expectation to deprive ourselves after the New Year, it occurred to me the other day how unbelievably fortunate we are to have such wonderful choices with which to sustain ourselves. Not just during the holidays, but all year. So take a moment once a day to say a prayer or invocation, to take a moment of silence and gratitude for what you’re about to eat.
Here I am in the fishbowl, putting my resolutions out there and in doing so hoping to hold myself as accountable as possible. Day 1 down, 11 to go. Please share your thoughts and resolutions too. Happy 2010 – peace, joy and Namaste.
