So your name is 2012 and we will get together for the next three hundred and something days. I’m not the kind that plans too much ahead but at least a new year’s resolution would be a good way of welcoming you 2012 in my life. So i thought about my options and i even tried to remember what went on in other years like yourself. What i realized was that i was always making promisses to get more and get better and get faster and get newer and get richer and get thinner and on and on. What i also realized was that these very things created most of the noises i hear in my head and i can say my head these last years is a really crowded and loud place. So I decided to do less. Not less of what i’m good at or less of the things that makes me important to some in this life of mine. Less i worrying. Less in planning. Less in expecting. Less in waiting. Less in wanting. And most important: less in self- consciousness. Less in worrying about each move we make and the reaction other people will have to that particular move. Maybe it sounds grumpy or egoistic but the fact is that i noticed we spend so much energy in just being that if we can be less we will live more. And happier. And better. So in 2012 i’ll be less. Be less yourself.
