Simple Aspirations for 2020
Even though this post is a little late, ok, I admit, it is very late! I still wanted to post it as I think it is always helpful to tune in and reflect on what matters most. Since new years resolutions are often unsustainable, consider setting an intention for the year instead. To clarify, an intention is an aim or plan, which takes you in a desired direction. It is often deeper and broader than a resolution. Thus, there is determination to be on a path one wants to be on, leaving room for learnings, curiosity and growth.
Setting an Intention
If this sounds interesting, think about what is truly important to you –your family, peace of mind, being kind to yourself? Consider that which brings wellbeing and fulfillment into your daily life —i.e. time to connect with friends, family or perhaps yourself, feeling inspired or learning something new?. One can also look to what might help us grow. Also, what just feels authentically good in our lives, i.e. some downtime, fresh air, balanced meals?. If you struggle to find an intention for yourself, check out renowned psychologist Rick Hanson’s blog, “Find Your North Star” for further guidance.
For me, my intention this year is to deepen my listening — that means slowing down, maybe reading some related books and strengthening my meditation practice. Coming from our heart space versus the mind lets us know the intention we set is more likely to bring what one desires most, which only you know what that is for you! Happy 2020!
