I have been thinking about how New Years is coming and that there is always this pressure to make resolutions. Resolutions I might add that few of us are really able to keep. So I decided something. Instead of a resolution, I am going to make a promise – a promise to myself, to do something for myself each day. Something that will make me smile, that will make me feel good about who I am and the path I am on. As I thought about what promise I was going to make to myself, I thought about all the possibilities – exercise everyday, meditate every morning and night, take a class, eat healthier, sleep more… but I wanted it even simpler and easier to do. So I decided – I am going to wear something luxurious everyday. Be it a great sweater, a beautiful silk scarf, cashmere gloves perhaps… I want to feel something on my body that feels cozy and luscious. I want to sense beauty and softness on my skin… to remind me of my blessings and of the good that exists in the world.
What a perfect time of year to make a promise to one’s self… to do something that makes you feel good every day. Even if it is just wearing a favorite hat. Pave your path with joyful moments. Take heart in the present moment. Make a promise to yourself. No resolutions… a promise, to be kept daily. ~ jill <3
