So do you list all your Resolutions ready for January to find by the beginning of February you have ditched the lot……yes that’s what happens to most!
So this coming NEW YEAR why not set a few Intentions instead?
Here’s my little plan that could help……
Number 1 – Identify your Intentions (keep it manageable)
I’m uncovering further talents and desires that will help make 2014 my most memorable year. Through keeping a ‘jotting journal’ I have lots of ideas and thoughts that have come together to form ideas and enable me plan for 2014. (In 2011 I set 12 creative tasks for myself 1 a month, I achieved 10. although I felt a bit sad I had not achieved all 12 it was pointed out to me 10 was bloody brilliant & yes it was RESULT!)
Number 2 – Remember to ‘Follow your Passions’
Just toss out that tired old “new year, new you” makeover plan you’ve been trotting out every January. Everything you need for a year of passionate self-discovery is coiled up inside you waiting to be unleashed. But if your deepest desires seem to be tied in knots, start the unraveling process with some self-reflection. Make friends with that inner voice that knows very well what you want and need. A bit of Mindful Relaxation and focus helps the process.
Number 3 – Practice……it does make you focus!
To follow your Intentions you first have to find them.
Make a list
I’m proudest of…
I most value…
My ideal day is…
My greatest strengths are…
Not many people know I…
I feel destined to… I
If l had £1 million, I would…
For 2014 5 things I want to achieve…………
Number 4 – Your Intentions
In 3 separate columns, list 20 things you want to be; 20 things you want to do; and 20 things you want to have.
This will enable you focus on the important aspects in your life that will fulfill you. You are beginning to have a clearer picture of your main intentions
Number 5 – A little Project to help get creative juices flowing
Assemble a personal visual representation of what you want your intentions to be like – just surround yourself with sensory input that inspires you. Add to it throughout the year, you could include a vision board with evocative images (your own photos or drawings, or magazine cutouts); CD’s or MP3s of your favourite tunes; DVDs and home videos that spark your imagination; candles, incense or flowers in scents that transport you; talismanic objects. Remember to place it where you will see it regularly.
Number 6 – Start ‘Doing the Doing’ Set your Intention
Make the list of your INTENTIONS for 2014 – identify them in order; when they will be completed and how you will reward yourself (unless the Intention is rewarding enough)
Share your INTENTIONS with everyone so you get encouragement.
One of my INTENTIONS for 2014 is to Blog more regularly, another is to have more FUN and I will be doing that in a variety of ways, already got several things in the diary.
So Peeps, remember it’s your life believe that you can make the changes you need to bring yourself back into balance and follow your INTENTIONS
Festive Love until next time
