Everything has a life — a beginning, a middle, and an end. Absolutely everything. An endless ebb and flow of energy in countless forms. Each one of us is born, we live, and then we die. Every animal and plant comes into being, lives, and dies. Everything has an arc of life that opens out […]

New Year’s resolutions are all about wanting to change old habits in order to form new habits. So how does this happen? We’re creatures of habit you know, with wave upon wave of repetition in our thoughts and behaviors. “Bad” habits, right? Perceived problems, in need of fixing.
