New Year resolutions have not worked for me for a long time. But setting an intention seems to. Here is an article I came across that really says a lot about the subject.
This year it is my intention to let go of many things, some tangible, others not so much. In the three days of this year so far, I have been amazed at how often these words come to mind.
— as I look at accumulated stuff and wonder if I should keep it
— when my mind wants to have it’s own little argument with imaginary forces
— when tension begins to build in my body for no good reason
— when hurts from the past raise their ugly head
— when I worry about the opinions of others
Every time this kind of stuff comes up, there is that gentle, quiet voice telling me to let it go.
This word phrase chose me.
How about you? Are you a resolution setter or an intention kind of person? I’d like to know if you’d care to leave a comment.
Whatever choice you have made for 2013, I hope that the year will be fulfilling and rewarding for all of you.
