“The body tries to tell the truth. But it’s usually too battered with rules to be heard, and bound with pretenses so it can hardly move. We cripple ourselves with lies.” – Jim Morrison.
Too often we lie to others, and more importantly to ourselves. I don’t make resolutions, at least not on New Years. I make resolutions when I feel that I’m not happy or something’s not right. Probably about May 2015 I made a resolution with myself to be honest with myself, to be more truthful to myself, and to be more authentic with my soul and my relationships. It’s caused quite the change. I’m not spinning in the fields and singing about the sound of music on a daily basis. I get very sad, and angry, and anxious still. But I feel more grounded. More contented. And I think that’s the goal I’m striving for – that no matter what I’m trying to achieve, and what I’m working on, I remain appreciative and contented where I am and with who I am.
That doesn’t mean I don’t recognize my faults. It just means I’m not kicking myself for them as much. Ya know, there are limits!

Since you asked Read through the Bible and Cateshism ( I have done so befroe but there is so much to receive from both of these books which give us the basis for our Faith To be faithful in a deeper commitment to Jesus our Lord through Mary the Mother of God To call my dad more often, he will be 90 this summer and others too of course I like your once a month goal Keep my apartment clean (I just got that from someone else but its a good steal!) Take care of my body also and get certain physical issues under control, diabetes etc. and money issues too Do Morning and Evening Prayer when possible (something new) but keep up with daily Mass, Chaplets and Rosary etc, which I currently do probably 2/3 of the time but should be DAILY AND not least of all Floss!!! Not looking to have dentures ever.That is about as much as this old guy can handle PS it is my 2nd 56th birthday of the week 56 years ago today, in the octave of a Christmas birthday and on the eve of the Circumcision of our Lord (now Solemn Feast of Mary Mother of God) I was baptized into Christ and the Church. Though I spent years outside of Rome, God knew I was Catholic all along, and I am so glad to be home. Or at least going towards home.Happy New Year Michael
