No, I have a problem with resolutions because people think that that’s it—it’s the one time to change. Now, don’t get me wrong. We definitely all need change. I have no idea how to ride a bicycle, and my little brother has no idea what a toilet is for, and some of you…yeah, you should probably…should get out of the house more. But one big decision probably is not going to do it. Sorry!
So now what? Flush your resolutions down the toilet? The one my little brother can’t use? Of course not! Keep your resolutions, but go easy on yourself. Will you change? Maybe. But it probably won’t happen in one big moment. It will happen in thousands of little moments. Every time you choose to forgive, or slow down, or be grateful, or stay calm. Each little moment that you choose what’s right instead of what’s easy, faith instead of doubt, love instead of hate. That’s where the change happens!
