Many of you have made resolutions for change in 2011 and already frustrated and ready to quit trying.
A change in perspective will make a big difference.
Consider this yoga teaching: Practice becomes firmly established by being continued for a long time, without interruption and with devotion.
We hear the term devoted partner, parent, friend, teacher…. What does that bring to mind? Perhaps loving, always willing to be there and dedicated.
What would happen if you gave this same devotion to your own wellbeing and resolutions?
If keeping your New Year’s resolutions seems difficult, treat yourself with the same kindness and patience that you would a child learning something new.
How do you treat people you are devoted to? Can you bring that to your resolutions?
