My New Year Resolution is to be human

It’s 2022 and my simple resolution reminder is that I’m a human being, not a human doing.

I don’t know about you, but it takes a lot to resist the urge to think about and plan all the things I want to do over the next twelve months. We’re constantly bombarded by expectations of what we should be doing, and it can be easy to forget who we really are. With that in mind, my new year’s resolution is to consistently remind myself that I am a human being, not a human doing and I offer that reminder to you too.

Taking the time to be still and experience my thoughts and feelings.

Raising awareness of my body – what does the sun, wind, rain, cold feel like against my skin?

Connecting with the beating rhythm of my heart.

Closing my eyes and experiencing the sounds I hear.

Being present and being human.

Happy New Year my friends, I pray you make the space and time to simply be. Accomplishments are great, but revel in the greatest accomplishment of all – you get to be human every day.

Cheers to all that 2021 offered and hi-five to 2022.
