I haven't ever made news years resolutions. I don't bother because I'm terrible about keeping my word to myself. I'll walk miles to keep my word to anyone else. If I tell someone I will, I do. In the past, instead of personal resolutions, I only reflect upon what transpired in the past year and how the new year will be full of more surprises; some good, some bad. Yet, this year, during the first week of December, I can't stop thinking about how I will change my behavior toward myself. This year; I'm going to dedicate it fully to my happiness, not my obligations, not reletives that are scientifically related, by blood, but only to those, related or otherwise, connected to my heart. I am on the road to discovering what being loving and kind to myself is all about. Stay tuned to see if I do keep my word to myself, I know I will, you'll see! IF you have ways that you practice to show yourself loving kindness, please share them!
