Things have a way of stacking up, don't you think?
Last week I was quizzing a friend about his intent, or lack of, to make New Year's resolutions. He responded no, he did not, and inquired the same of me.
So I shared that indeed, I did...every year...a great many. In categories, and sub-categories, and sub/sub- categories. I have a lot to resolve, quite obviously. All of these imperfections require a commensurate resolution (despite studies indicating that the more
resolutions we make, the less likely we are to keep them).
Before I know it, they all stack up on me and I am forced to tease out
the one; I mean THE ONE!, that is the common denominator in this outline of intentions for the year ahead.

Be just a little more zen, a little more realistic, a little (okay, a lot) less frantic about life.
So I give you a great blog in that regard, Zen Habits, and its important missives on life's excesses, frustrations, and demands.
I consider self-awareness to be one of the most important character traits one can possess, and I am very aware that I am easily, and often inappropriately, overwhelmed. A little zen helps. Good luck with your resolutions in 2013!
