What are your New Year's resolutions? What resolutions would you like to see others make?There are good New Year's resolutions, including getting healthy/whole/holy, that is, being fit and praying always. Personally I recently vowed to say "thank you" as often as possible and "I love you" as often as is appropriate.
The discipline of principles such as those of the 12-step program seem to me more likely to last, and have long-range results, than resolutions to eat right and lose weight or even pray and laugh more often. So in recent years, I have done my best to take (only) six steps to "recovery": recovery of the life of the mind, recovery of the life of free movement of the heart, and recovery of the ability to act with intelligence and compassion.
1. I admit I am not powerful enough to manage my life.
2. I believe that God, with power greater than myself, can bring me to my senses and home to myself.
