Sunday Thoughts... A Radical Resolution

I hope your New Year is off to a good start.  

I love the New Year.  
It's a concrete moment when we can close the door to the past and begin afresh.  I love the chance to hit restart.   Though, I stopped making New Year's Resolutions many years ago, I've been thinking about these pledges made in anticipation of a new calendar year lately.

What if...
instead of making a one time obligatory resolution in January, what would happen if we woke each morning in prayer, asking to be the best we can be, do the best we can do, just for that one day.... not to be the best, to have the most, but be our best throughout our day.   This may be listening to someone's story... holding a hand of someone who is scared... bandaging a knee... smiling at a stranger... giving a hug.  And, sometimes our best is simply taking care of ourselves.

 Think about it.  
If we begin each morning prayerfully making our resolution, we can't fail.
And think...
                                                                      of the tidal wave. 

Wishing you the best New Year ever!
