Like most, I’m not very good at resolutions, not for any particular reason. If a goal is that important to me, then I am probably already doing it.

So this year, no worrying about the outcomes. For 2017, I want to make choices in the here and now, consciously, with understanding, with humor, and with love.
- I choose fearlessness.
- I choose faithfulness.
- I choose cheerfulness.
- I choose acceptance.
- I choose thankfulness.
- I choose mindfulness.
This is not a resolution. It is how I choose to live 2017!
