New Years Resolutions - New Years Intentions - A Fresh New Way to Look Forward to the Year Ahead
Firstly lets compare the 2 words before I explain why to intend something is much better then to resolve something.
Intention ~ A course of action that you intend to follow.
Resolution ~ The act, operation, or process of resolving.
As you can see the 2 words have very different meanings. When you read one you look forward the other you look back. To look forward to something is a great feeling!
To resolve something almost brings the word "fix" to mind, to make something better, by doing this you are looking back and reflecting upon things which you need to make better or improve upon. This can often bring you negative feelings towards what needs to be resolved in your life.
A much more positive way to look to your year ahead is to set intentions, to intend for an amazing year ahead. In life we are always moving forward there really is no point dwelling in the past in particular when it comes to setting your intentions. Be very present and in the moment knowing that you have a fresh start to set things in motion. Your course of action for the following year. How exciting is this!
So get creative, get a pen and paper and write out your intentions for the coming year ~ Where will you be going? What will you be doing? Who will you be with? How will you feel? Keep it all very positive and really commit to what you truly want to show up in your life. Forget what you want to resolve, change or make better and really focus on your desires, intend it and know these things will show up in your life.
I work with personal development, positive thinking and the universal law of attraction on a daily basis, it really is amazing what a little positive intention can do in life. Have fun with it!
At the end of last year I set my intentions and less than one year later I am living my dream, I escaped the rat race was able to quit my job and become my own boss now I help others do the same.
