My new year's guiding principles

To invest in the opportunities I already possess
Not to gamble my health fretting over those I don’t
To develop and transform
Not to leave to stagnate
To grasp the nettle
Not to let battles slip by me for want of a nail
To buy a house
Not to be disappointed if we can’t
To treat my neighbours, my friends, my family, my village, my countryside and the world with respect
Not to be disheartened that something so obvious needs a resolution before it can be accomplished

(I’ve written more mundane resolutions too—that is, actual goals for the end of 2008—but they’re not nearly as interesting. They involve a lot of mending and grappling and sweating.)
