The Easter Season brings to mind new beginning and motivates us to assess our lives and make adjustments in actions and attitudes to improve our outer circumstances and our inner selves.
Such improvements should always start with relationships because of their vast potential to produce joy and pleasure as well as grief and pain. The key is to take responsibility for maintaining and improving each important relationship even if that means letting go of grudges, taking the first step, and/or committing to be a better parent, child or significant other. Think how much you can improve your life if you nurture the best in everyone you know.
Next, monitor your attitudes — especially any tendency to be negative, pessimistic or cynical. Resolve to think, act and speak more positively about yourself, your children, even your coworkers. Think how much warmth and light you can bring into the world with extra smiles, kind deeds and encouraging words.
