Let's Consider a New Resolution for 2013

We're days away from a clean slate.  A new year, a new start, a new opportunity.  Most will lean over and feel the bucket of Christmas cookies that are now hanging around your waist and vow to lose those extra pounds.  Some will work to chuck the disgust of a smoking habit.  Some will decide that their drinking is no longer a social activity and has moved into a scary necessity and work to get some help.  All noble endeavors.

Today, however, I want to suggest a resolution that could change your life in a way that fuels all the other resolutions listed above.  Consider choosing something that could completely transform you and your family.

This year .........choose to be vulnerable.

Choose to listen more, ask more questions, consider other opinions that differ from your own.
Believe that you are worthy of love and belonging. 
Love with your whole heart.
Choose Joy. 
Choose Gratitude.

Choose all of these things in a world that is full of blame, hate, frustration, and addiction.
Choose to see it differently. 

Some of you are thinking, "Heck with that, I'd rather join AA and Weight Watchers, that sounds easier!"

Start by watching this 17 minute video by Brene' Brown.  I can think of no better way to start contemplating your new you, your clean slate for a 2013 transformation.  Type your reactions in the comments.  I'll continue the conversation tomorrow in a new post and each day through New Year's Day.  Let's call it countdown to Vulnerability.......
