Resolutions…. that word is such an absolute for me.
Every year we are asked to decide on our resolutions and then do THAT THING. Then, 3, 10, 14 days later, when you fail to follow through, you go through this depressing cycle of beating yourself down. Well, at least that’s what I do! And why wouldn’t I? As human beings we are not perfect, so when we decide resolutely to accomplish something, and then fail to follow through, the normal process ensues. It’s a bloody travesty, I tell you!!
This year, instead of resolutions, I’ve decided to focus on intentions. Intentions aren’t as scary to me. They aren’t as absolute and stuck as resolutions. They are more free flowing and versatile. Intentions allow me to make mistakes. Intentions allow me to be human and waiver, then go back to the path I’m working towards. They are a way of being instead of this lingering cloud of pressure.
So, let me share with you some of my intentions this year:
Family = Team.
This is something that I have been trying to stress to my family, and teach my children for a while now. My intention is to keep spreading this message and work towards this goal.
Blogging is not an easy task. It takes commitment and work and time. My intention this year is to be more consistent, however that ends up playing out.
This year my intentions are to practice art. That’s really what an artist does anyways, right? They practice? I have a lot of intentions in this area of practice and plan to show you my journey along the way.
This year, I’m deciding to be intentional with my goals. What are you being intentional with this year?
