One Resolution to Rule Them All

One of the people I most admire in the world, and most want to meet in person one day, is Pema Chodron. She’s a Buddhist monk, author, and speaker. She’s also very funny. She has a way with words rare among people who study ancient texts and wisdom, in that she makes old wisdoms relatable to current events. Her words inspire me and give me strength on a weekly basis.

From her I’ve got my resolution for this year: Practice staying with your discomforts, whatever they may be, and relax into them. Don’t run, or numb, or turn away as you encounter them.

What you find there is what you actually need.
