New Years Resolutions

Sylvia Boorstein

Since it’s the beginning of the year, I’ll start with telling you one of the resolutions I made last year: I decided I would give up the word “should.” And I listened to myself! Even in the middle of a sentence, if I said “I should” or “he should have”... It doesn’t matter if he should have—he didn’t. What I really mean, and what is much sweeter for my mind to hear, is “I wish I had done that,” or “I wish he had,” and now that I say it that way. It just keeps my mind a sweeter neighborhood with less bad people in it.
