New Years’ Resolutions

Some wonderful suggestions from A. Dean Byrd:

q   Begin your day my waking up 30 minutes earlier

q   Plan your week in advance, and reflect upon the past week

q   Reconnect with five old friends

q   Remember to say ‘I love you’ to your spouse every day, and say it from the heart

q   Start loving your job, no matter how you feel about it

q   Stop just reading the scriptures and begin living them more fully

q   Touch someone’s life

q   Face your problems and do something about them

q   Stop blaming others for your problems (this includes God)

q   Don’t make the same mistakes of prior years

q   Pray from the heart, not just from the head

q   Laugh often, and invite others to laugh with you

q   Spend more time with family and friends

q   If your parents are living, send them a letter expressing your love

q   Be humble enough to ask for help if and when you need it

q   Live in the present:   ‘Past is history; future is mystery; the present if a gift.’

q   Remember the serenity prayer:  ‘God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.’   Depak Chopra

q   Enhance your daily life:  ‘Dance like no one is watching, love like you’ve never been hurt, sing like no one is listening, live like its heaven on earth.’  Mark Twain

q   ‘Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better human being.’   Benjamin Franklin
