What if in the New Year, instead of trying to change ourselves and get rid of things we don’t like; what if we decided to cultivate our best characteristics and focus on those? How many times do you set resolutions only to fail? What if we simply switch our intention or resolution? How about changing to look at something good in yourself and vow to cultivate that?
As we get ready to begin a new year, consider what qualities you have that are already good. What characteristics can you cultivate more of to become the highest vision of your Self? Start thinking, then with compassion and one step at a time begin the journey. Do not worry about shedding any parts of yourself, just think of strengthening the gifts you already have. Who knows? It just may work this time.
