I am finding it more helpful lately to ask questions than make resolutions. I don’t need another list of shoulds. Sure, I have goals. But right now I need joy more than I need progress, and nothing is surer to suck the joy out of life than a giant list of check-boxes.
I’m always asking questions anyway; I’m just trying now to discipline my mind to make room for certain questions each day.
How can I practice self-care today?
How can I nurture my family today?
Who can I encourage?
How can I preserve peace, and foster simplicity today?
