Happy New Year Everyone!!
As we head into 2019, I want this year to be a year of intention. I know that’s easy to say on the first of January when everyone is excited for a fresh start. And while it can be challenging to remain as focused as the year goes on, I think that’s when it’s most important to be intentional. To be self-aware enough to acknowledge where you’re at, assess what needs to change & create a plan of attack to get you back on track.
I read a quote that my dear friends posted this morning & I think it’s the perfect reminder that while certain circumstances are beyond our control, we do have a choice in how we live the life we’ve been given
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”
- Abraham Lincoln
So my intentions for 2019 are as follows:
To be more kind
To be more forgiving
To be less reactive
To be more patient
To learn to let things go
To be more grateful
To be less pessimistic
To be less emotional
To stop taking things so personally
Sometimes I just need to take a breath, be present enough to address why I’m feeling the way I am & adjust my perspective. And I don’t mean just sweeping the way I feel under the rug, but rather, I need to learn to move forward & not harbor frustration, anger or resentment.
