Keep Hoping Machine Running

A few years ago, I stopped making new year’s resolutions because they feel like they run counter to what I’m trying to do: live every day like the best version of myself I can be.

However, this set of “New Year Rulin’s” from Woody Guthrie is very charming and sweet. (Click it to see a big version you can read.)

I liked Guthrie’s list so much, I thought I’d steal a few of his excellent ideas. These are my favorites:

LEARN PEOPLE BETTER

KEEP HOPING MACHINE RUNNING

WAKE UP AND FIGHT

And in that spirit, I’ll add:

BREATHE THROUGH YOUR NOSE

LAUGH OUT LOUD

SLEEP DEEP


How about you? Which of Woody’s “Rulin’s” resonate with you? Have any you want to add?
