I used to be a big fan of setting resolutions and over time I have moved away from this and toward setting intentions and developing practices and habits. It has made such a big difference and such a huge shift in my mindset.
Why? Well, because intentions are so much more than the goal setting that drives resolutions. Intentions are developed from within and are soul driven and provide so much clarity on ways of living each day.
Yet, the word resolve is a powerful word and certainly has a place in choosing to resolve to take actions this year that are in alignment with your intentions. Many, perhaps all, of my five intentions revolve around the idea of engaging with myself and the world in ways that nourish. Because one of my mantras is nourish to thrive and so far I have found this to be so true.
One of the most powerful ways I can think of to serve myself and find a greater place of understanding and peace is through reading. I was shocked to learn how many adults have not read a book in the last 12 months. So, I am throwing it out to set intentions that align with your inner guidance, connect you to the energy of the Universe, and help you in your journey— always becoming, always evolving.
Lets all resolve to read more (one book at a time).
