Episode 62: New Year’s Inspirations vs. Resolutions

This is the time of year when most of us come up with a list of things we must commit to do in the New Year. It has become a source of wry humor that most of us compare notes in February and realize we haven’t kept up or aren’t really committed to our “resolutions.” For some, that’s amusing, for others, it sets off negative, judgmental thinking. Yet, when we understand how thought works, it makes sense. We don’t change because we “should” or we feel pressure. Change comes from moments of inspiration, when a change feels obvious and easy, because it arises from our wisdom and and makes sense to us.
