You Came >> You Went
That's where the hang-up is for me. I am realizing that I am not a very goal-oriented person. You may recall a few months ago when I had set 4 simple goals for myself to accomplish before December. I did not accomplish all of them. And now I feel bad.
Goals work great for many people, but not for me. To me, they are benchmarks for what I have not accomplished; they do not motivate me, they are only reminders of how I have failed. Yesterday during yoga class, however, we came to one of my very favorite parts of practice: setting an intention.
Why would this be so special to me, when I detest goals so much? Maybe the difference is subtle, but to me it is huge. I want to be purposeful in my living and choices, and reminding myself of that in moments of need is SO SO useful to me. So I think that is my resoultion/goal for the year: to live with intention. Yes. My intention is to...live with intention. (Has that word lost all meaning for you yet? Heehee!)
This year, I intend...
-to make choices that support my health and well-being.
-to grow my blog and cultivate this space.
-to ground myself more firmly in my yoga practice.
-to turn 30, and realize the person (woman! I still feel weird calling myself that) I have grown into.
What are your resolutionsgoalsintentionsplans for this New Year? If you posted about it, leave me a link in the comments to check it out!
