New Years Intentions! December 31, 2015

Happy New Years everyone!!  And being that it’s new years eve I’ve been thinking a lot about New Years resolutions.  We hear a lot about making New Years resolutions…. which, so many do not keep (as she smiles sheepishly).  What if we changed them to intentions? Like: My intention is to be more compassionate or My intention is to be more aware of what I put into my mouth…  So this got me thinking… What is the difference between a resolution and an intuition… Well the definitions are:

resolution: (noun) 1. a firm decision to do or not to do something 

intention is: (noun) 1. a thing intended; an aim or plan. (and intend: 1. have (a course of action) as one’s purpose or objective) 

OK… so the difference is that a resolution is a definitive decision and an intention is an objective for change…. To me the intention is a kinder plan for forward movement and the resolution doesn’t allow for life to happen. An intention is a plan to create change.  It sounds as if  I’m saying an intention lets you off the hook, but it doesn’t.  If you intend to do something you still can be held accountable by yourself, friends or a Life coach.  When resolutions are made and then dropped by February we feel a bit like we failed… So how can you create an intention that is kind and loving towards yourself and the world around you? Do you want to be more compassionate, loving, aware of your time, aware of what you put into your mouth?  What…

What is your intention going into the new year?  What new awareness will you bring into your daily life that you hadn’t done before?  What are you willing to do to keep your forward movement?

 

Happy Happy New Years!  Talk to you next year!  (that never gets old for me 🙂 )

Lot of Love!

As the evening descends and we begin to think of the year that has passed be it spectacular or not or maybe even in between; I invite you to sit in the peace of the moment and reflect on the beauty of what has been.

Now I invite you to find 3 things to be grateful for…..

Now find 3 more things…..

Now 3 more….

Now I invite you to take a deep cleansing breath and take these marvelous gifts into the New Year because if you are able to find things to be Grateful for there will be more to be Grateful for!!!

 

Happy Abundant New Year!!

Love and Light!!

Sarah
