Walk the Talk Show with Waylon Lewis presents:

“Every Monday, I offer a mindful reminder for our everyday life.” ~ Waylon Lewis 

For this week’s Mindful Monday video/podcast, Waylon offers a cheerful New Year’s message and reminder about “the only fundamentally important or worthwhile resolution.”

“I rarely make resolutions, ’cause I don’t think they really matter. But if we are going to make one, the only resolution that really matters is a fundamental one—to make friends with ourselves.

That’s not to say that other resolutions can’t be fun, worthwhile, and important—but let’s make sure that we’re making that fundamental one: to make friends with ourselves, in the new year.” ~ Waylon Lewis 

Your Mindful Monday Video:

“Happy New Year from Elephant Journal International Community. We have been doing this for 22 years. We have 13 million social fans, millions of readers across many different platforms.

But we’re still small, independent media. And you know, every time you read Elephant Journal, every time you write on elephantjournal.com/post, every time you get our newsletter, elephantjournal.com/best, you’re helping keep us alive so we can make 23 years.” ~ Waylon Lewis

Or listen to the podcast: 

Join Elephant’s self-paced course, Maitri: the Buddhist practice of Making Friends with Yourself. This course won’t make you better—it’ll help you make friends with yourself as you actually are.
