Resolutions are out. Ritual are in.
For me, Ritual is a reminder to pay attention to the patterns of my life. To honor my habits and routines. To see the sacred in my slow morning walk with the dog instead of pulling on his leash, rushing him down the street so I can get to the next part of my day. To remember that there is no next part of my day—there is only the moment I’m in. It’s also a way to invoke more pleasure, enjoyment, and ease in my everyday activities. To do things not because they serve some future purpose, but because I like doing them right now.
