new year's un-resolutions
This is not a Big Promise To Do Something; it's not even goal-setting. In my ongoing work to free myself from a strong tendency towards All Or Nothing, to not paint myself into a corner, to not create Rules which I then use to limit my experiences, I don't even set concrete goals.
My thinking takes the form of general precepts that I'm trying to remember.
When the weather is nice, spend more time outdoors.
Remember to make plans with friends sometimes.
Do a jigsaw puzzle now and again.
At work, take my full one-hour dinner break without doing union work.
Remember that it's all right to make mistakes.
Explore local history.
Remember to blog instead of Facebook.
