    I love these tips, especially the one about making sure you really care about your resolution. Some days I care about those 10 pounds, and some days I don’t, so obviously my progress is going to be inconsistent. Thanks for the reminder to figure out what I’m up for changing every single day of the year!

    whew, Beth, you are seriously one of my favorite new friends. I look forward to connecting with you again when you come back into town. Happy 2012!

  3. One moment of life is no less amazing or valuable than another. Anytime we become overly focused on the future, we detract from the richness that can be found only in the present.

    this is really profound, Beth, and reminds me very much of what Eckart Tolle has said over & over in the Power of Now. He says that if we become overwhelmed with our preoccupation with our fears (paraphrasing drastically here), to consider that at the present moment, we are okay. If I get panicky about my future, or depressed about something in the past, I bring myself to this very moment. Invariably, I am okay at the present moment. Amazing.
    Happy 2012 to you.

    Hard for me to choose which one of these I like best. Finding the root is vying with recognizing societal bullshit. All are really helpful in this time of resolution overload.

    Yes! Thanks for this. I don’t really do the New Year’s resolution thing, but I love the chance to take stock, pause and reflect and dream. Some how what came up for me this year is to keep tabs on how my insecurities effect the way I relate to myself and the world… notice what filters or walls or judgements I put into the equation due to insecurity, and then lovingly let them go. So far I have felt great new energy and am daring to dream bigger than ever.
    Thank you for what you give to the world as a writer. I am so happy to have found you blog.
    Happy New Year!
