In the past few weeks I have read a lot of advice about how to make changes in the New Year: how to keep a resolution; why you should never make a resolution; how to shed excess pounds and excess baggage; how to cleanse your body of toxins; how to bid farewell to toxic people.
Lots of advice is available to us; much of it good.
My two cents?
I don’t mean hedonism nor selfishness.
We still must work for peace and justice - not to mention food on the table and a roof over our heads.
I am talking about an internal shift.
An attitude of gratitude? Yes.
The Golden Rule? Yes.
Engaging with the world well intentioned, with kindness and respect? Yes.
But in addition to those; even more than those, I urge you to choose joy.
This, from David Buskin and Robin Batteau, is the “Choose Joy” theme song. ;o)
Here’s to a Happy, Healthy - and Joyous New Year!
