Saying goodbye

Thirty days remain to wrap up the year and our list of goals.  I feel pretty good about my own progress, and whatever didn’t get accomplished by December 31st must not have been important.  Or, I just wasn’t ready to tackle whatever it was.  Instead of resolutions for 2013, however, I plan to adopt the following tenets:

Ten Spiritual Tonics ~ Abraham L. Feinberg

1. Stop worrying.  Worry kills life.
2. Begin each day with a prayer. It will arm your soul.
3. Control appetite.  Over-indulgence clogs body and mind.
4. Accept your limitations.
5. Don’t envy.  It wastes time and energy.
6. Have faith in people.  Cynicism sours the disposition.
7. Find a hobby.  It will relax your nerves.
8. Read a book a week to stimulate imagination and broaden your views.
9. Spend some time alone for the peace of solitude and silence.
10. Try to want what you have, instead of spending your strength trying to get what you want.

How are your goals looking?
