Not much of a one for the New Year Resolutions – the daily battle does me without adding the burden that a ‘great leap forward’ might be attainable. So I was delighted to get hold of my favourite ‘Independent’ today after missing a couple. It offers ‘A New You’ supplement – the easy way to make 2008 the best year of your life – The No Diet Diet. Fortunately it has already reached No 4: Seeing the Results – so I can bask in outcomes without worrying too much about process.
It’s all very … awareness; responsibility; emotional intelligence; assertiveness; social intelligence. Wouldn’t argue with much of it – indeed life in the church would be much easier if we could all handle ourselves as this suggests. Except that for me it doesn’t add up to a model of being with and for others. I particularly liked some of the bits of the Awareness section: ‘Listening for sounds that you’re not normally aware of – this could be anything from birdsong to the sound of the central heating firing up.’ Welcome to 2008
May you should try the Sea(see) food diet. See food and eat it.
