A year of discernment

Perhaps this could be a year of unusual discernment for you.

Instead of your usual habits, pay close attention to what you read, who and what you listen to, and particularly to what you say.

Notice what dulls you. What twists you out of shape. What sends you asleep to yourself and to the world. You can be sure if you’re diminishing yourself, you’re also diminishing the people around you.

Notice what brings you vibrantly to life.

Does this sound like an irrelevant question? I can assure you, it’s of the greatest and most practical importance.

Because if we’re going to address the challenges ahead of us, we urgently need you to be wide awake, and we need you to shine… so that we can all shine too.
