No more resolutions aimed at self-improvement to fix some perceived deficiency or lack.

I’m starting from a position of accepting myself as-is.

I’ll be looking for resolutions and new habits that increase joy, peace of mind, and self-awareness.

The first step (accepting myself as-is) sounds trivial, (sure I can do that). But it’s a concept that I expect to be challenging and require a lot of introspection.

Where does the idea that I should be more (__fill in the blank__ ) come from?
