• Decide to lose.
  • When engaged in a battle of words with a family member, decide to lose the argument. You will emerge victorious, with the twin bounty of peace and humility in your hands.

  • Decide to say something.
  • If you hear someone insulting another or judging others by their looks, color, race or religion, decide to not remain quiet. Say something. Let it be known that you don’t agree.

  • Decide to make every day special.
  • Take a decision that every day of 2021 will be special. Decide to value every moment and be grateful for life.

  • Decide to discover the joy in small things.
  • It’s human tendency to wait for happiness to come along. While we are waiting, we feel anxious. Decide to look for joy that surrounds you 24 hours a day.

  • Decide to take time out for yourself.
  • You will not become a martyr to your family for sacrificing your health for their sake. You will be blamed instead. So, decide to take care of your physical and mental health.

  • Decide to be spontaneous.
  • Take a walk in the middle of the day, or bake cookies, or play in the backyard with your children, or take a comedy break. Be spontaneous.

  • Decide to break the tension.
  • Look at your face in the mirror and make a funny face. Shake off the tension and the gloom by laughing at yourself.

Yours,
