Setting Intentions for the New Year

Do you make resolutions at the beginning of every new year? Personally, I’m not a big “resolutions” person because 1) I often like to break the rules, and 2) I think they set us up for failure.

This year, I’ve decided to set “intentions” instead. Intentions stem from the word “intend,” which by definition means to have a course of action as one’s purpose or objective. Essentially, an intention is a plan, which feels much more doable for me. One of my goals this year to be easier on myself, and to share more personal moments like these with all of you!

So in staying in line with my intentions for the new year, I created this video all about setting intentions. Give it a watch, and make sure you subscribe to my new YouTube Channel so you’re the first to know when a new video is live.

What are some intentions you are setting for the new year? Tell me in the comments below, I want to hear from you! Here’s to a beautiful, successful, and fun filled 2018!

    I’m going to try and not cling to things that weren’t meant for me. Not everything works out all the time and there’s no reason to keep reliving the hurt over and over. I’ll grieve for a bit and then let it go. Hope y’all have a wonderful 2018!

  • Elena

    I’m going to take care of me and get healthy.

    My intention is to be more curious. I think I’m so used to just trying to get through the day and my to do list, that I forget to pay attention to the things around me, to ask questions and then wait for the answers and to notice what inspires or intrigues me. Hopefully following my curiosity will lead to more mindfulness and creativity and passion.

    My intention for this year is to really focus on my business and to continue on my weight loss journey. I intend to put my self first more because if I don’t take care of me then I can not be the best for my family

  • Rose

    A few years ago, I had to shut down my business. I was heart broken about it, but the amout of business I was getting in my area just wasn’t enough to it keep going. My husband is now looking for work in another state, and with that, I’m hoping to re-establish my business. To quote Confucius, “Find a job you love and you’ll never work a day in your life”, that inspires me to look to 2018 with renewed vigor.
