A new year is upon us. And, like I do every year, I promise myself I will not miss yoga, I will eat as close to the earth as I can and I wwill try to have balance in my life. But...but...but... But, when we look at things we wanted to change from resolutions about success or weight or money, think about the power of words.
Who wants to be alone? My dad's words made no sense to me at the time. The idea of walking into a restaurant and saying to the hostess "Just one, please" is daunting, terrifying, and depressing. Movies alone. Shopping alone. Entire weekends alone. It all just sounds and feels terrible. Bleak. Until it doesn't.
