Episode 30: Andrea Ferretti – 3 Resolutions to Set Yourself on a Path Toward Happiness

I live in a state of duality when it comes to New Year’s resolutions. On the one hand, I loathe them. I loathe the intense focus on self-improvement and self-achievement that’s emblazoned across magazine covers in the month of January. And YET, I love the idea of taking a moment to pause and reflect on the previous year and to think about how I’d like to live in the coming year,

And so. This episode focuses on three resolutions that really get to the heart of what has created happiness in my life:

* Use Your Yoga Practice to Get To Know Yourself
* Practice Self Acceptance
* Be the Love

What do you think? I’d love to know what you’re working on. And, my friends and listeners who are from outside the U.S., I’d love to know if you feel the same cultural pressure on self-improvement around New Year’s!

Remember those moments, as a kid, when you just couldn’t wait to be a grown-up? You wanted to ride your bike with your friends after dark/dye your hair purple/sleep over at your boyfriend’s house and you agonized when your parents wouldn’t let you? Or do you remember feeling lost as a young adult and wishing that you had things “more figured out?”

Now, do you remember when the flip switched and you and your friends started lamenting, “Ugggggh. I’m soooooo old. How did this happen??!!”

I’m writing this on my 43rd birthday. And I want to erase the “I’m so old” lament phrase from my consciousness. I get it. I really do. I’ve been guilty of it. And I will cop to fact that the process of aging isn’t always easy. When you get carded until you’re 30, it’s hard to face the fact that you will never. Ever. Get. Carded. Again. And sure, to get a halfway decent selfie after the age of 35 you really have to hold the camera at the just right angle and 90% of the time it’s better for all of mankind if you delete it. (I am always barking at Jason, “Higher! Hold the camera higher!”)
