It’s that time of year again. Where we look back and dream forward.
In order to make our dreams more tangible and feasible, we are encouraged to turn our dreams into New Year’s resolutions — specific goals for things we want to accomplish in the coming year.
I don’t usually make resolutions, and this year I am more clear than ever before on why I haven’t wanted to make resolutions all these years.
It’s because I prefer intentions to resolutions.
So, this year, I am setting a deep and juicy New Year’s INTENTION, and I am recommending you do the same.
Here are three reasons why I prefer “setting intentions” to “making resolutions”:
1) Intentions cut to the heart of the matter by
focusing on the FEELING you want (rather than a
goal that may or may not create that feeling).
2) Intentions stay loose in terms of how they show
up – and that gives the Universe more room to help
you manifest that intention in whatever way is most
effective or beneficial for you (i.e.., you may think you
you want to lose 20 lbs, but actually losing 10 lbs.
might be more beneficial for your overall health).
3) Intentions aren’t all or nothing. When we create
rigid resolutions, we have a tendency to quit if we
think we aren’t “on track.” Intentions help us stay
in the process and shift in little ways that get us
going in the right direction again.
So whats your intention for 2012?
I hope it makes your heart and soul sing.
