I’m not one to make new year’s resolutions. I usually set up some goals I want to accomplish during the year and of course I have my weekly “to do” lists. Some items migrate week to week. Sigh.
But 2019 has me antsy. I think it is because it is just not a new year but the end of a decade. Where do I want to be in 2020? What do I not want to migrate over into a new decade? What do I want to be able to say “I accomplished that…..” “2019 was when……” Or just check a few boxes off the wish list period.
So I am taking the end of this year so sit with myself and write out my intentions for 2019. What do I want to finish, start or finally realize that this is not going to happen and let it go. I think that this is part of the journey – letting go of intentions that no longer serve us. Realizing that what we thought we wanted or needed might no longer be part of our journey and to just take a breath and let go. Not carry them into a new decade.
I already know one intention I am starting. To be kinder and gentler with myself. I am hoping that one intention will lead to a more peaceful year (life!!) and that alone is so worth something.
I would love to hear your intentions for 2019. Do you feel it is a big year to settle things, get things moving or let things go?
You can always start now!
