Do Better

Like so many of the rest of you, I spent a lot of the last week of 2011 reflecting on the year and deciding how I want 2012 to go.  Then a funny thing happened.  I found myself in an emotional black hole...which led to me feeling like I was physically in a black hole.  I have no idea how I got there.  2011 wasn't disastrous.  If anything the year was really good to me.  REALLY good.  So how did I end up there?

Well it came down to this mantra:  When you know better, you do better.  While I apparently made so many good choices as was apparent with the good in the year I had, I didn't make a lot of great choices.  And I knew better.  

What happens when you consistently make not so good or just good choices when you know better?  The good that is happening in your life is not really sustainable.  Life will not let you live as you are in this moment forever.  Something always gives and you either rise or you sink.  

So instead of listing out specific resolutions for 2012 and onward, I just made a decision that is simple and all encompassing.

Do better.
