Brand new year, brand new beginning of a new chapter in our lives to do better, or change behaviors in our lives! Do you do resolutions or intentions each year? Or have you ever really thought about it one way or the other? Why do intentions, or why do resolutions? What is the difference? For a number of years I haven’t done much of anything – resolutions OR intentions. This year is a BOTH kind of year for me for obvious and not so obvious reasons!
Resolutions are more “goal” oriented, something tangible that you are trying to obtain. I want my business to go better, so I need more exact goals to get to the end result I want. I need to spend the time taking my dreams and writing them out on paper. The only difference between a dream and a goal, is the goal is written down on paper! Resolution’s help you take action!
Intentions are more habit related! Now this can go in ALL directions in your life… MY intentions this year are designed to help me be a better person! We can have the same intentions, but for very different reasons! Intentions are habits you want to break, like not drinking enough water, not working out, being rude and not loving… Habits and things that you need to stop doing…
I am working on my resolutions and intentions this week! That fun planner I just got, will be put to use this year! I have a lot to be thankful for, and to work towards! I hope you join me!
Thanks for stopping by, until next time!
