My New Year’s resolution

My New Year’s resolution

I made it, but forgot to share it. I think it’s rather nice.

Cultivate and maintain the beginner’s mind.

I won’t be becoming a Zen Buddhist, although I must thank various buddhist/taoist texts as well as marshal arts instructors for giving me this vocabulary and encouraging this practice. I will be trying to maintain joyful, curious, playful intensity where I have it, and trying to return to that place for activities where I have forgotten it.
