Today, as in years of the past, I kept hearing about the idea of making resolutions to make my life better & the fact is that I tend not to make them. My approach is that through my daily meditation practice I become acutely aware both of the changes I could make to improve my situation, and my resistance to making those changes. For example, I became aware that for weight and health reasons I would be better off eliminating the chocolate bits from the trail mix that I snack on during the day. I was also aware that I enjoyed the sweetness and taste of the chocolate & did not want to give it up. I have added dried fruit for sweetness and eliminated chocolate, a good compromise that is working.
