Hope your body feels better soon, Asha... and I hope your spirit feels good NOW because you have given us a gift here. You've illuminated something powerful, which is finding the space to imagine things differently.

"Plans are dressed-up wishes" i LOVE this. And I especially love all your thoughts about resolutions

I always pick a word or phrase of the year. The great thing about this is that, like a skilled palm-reader or generalised horoscope, you can usually bend it to suggest you DID do whatever that thing was! I say that cuncialy, but honestly, every year I am like 'i DID "release" a lot this year!' 'i DID really "come back home to myself" this year!'

I appreciate you! Also booooooo for being sick!!!!!! xoxoxox

I’ve never been one for NY resolutions. As an educator, my year seems to start in August anyway. I tend to get very productive that time of year. But I also don’t believe in making them. They put too much pressure on us to keep them up. I’ve probably said this to you before, but my motto is “ once in a row.” Do the thing once, be pleased, and if it isn’t achieved again tomorrow or even next week, that’s ok. Just do it as often as practical. Be pleased that you did and ok if you didn’t.
