Top 10 New Year’s Mediation Resolutions

Cinergy Coaching by Cinnie Noble

Instead of a series of 10 questions, this week’s blog is a series of my Conflict Resolutions for 2014.

This year, I will acknowledge how conflict presents an opportunity to enrich relationships.

This year, I will make amends with people and not let our differences of opinion fester.

This year, I will apologize and mean it.

This year, I will stop blaming others.

This year, I will take responsibility for how I contributed to disputes.

This year, I will forgive and let bygones be bygones.

This year, I will not be hard on others, or on myself.

This year, I will not judge people.

This year, I will value the importance of respecting other people’s opinions, even if I don’t agree with them.

This year, I will listen.

Please feel free to add your own.

Wishing you a joyful, peaceful, and loving 2014!
