It’s that time of the year again. The one where we start fresh, prepare to do better, eat less, drink less, be more. How is it that every year we find ourselves…here again?! My theory is, it’s because we set resolutions instead of focusing on what our intention is.
A resolution is defined as; “a firm decision to do or not to do something, and, the action of solving a problem, dispute, or contentious matter..” Intention is defined as, “an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result; purpose.” One focuses on the problem, the other on potential.
If our thoughts create our reality, when we focus on our problems, we can get stuck in the problem. Focusing on potential creates possibilities, options so to speak! Which one do you want to focus on?
What if you were to ask yourself; “Who do I have the potential to become if…?” and fill in the blank what do you think would happen? This simple question creates a much larger space for us to become aware of what we could not see before, in order to create the life we want.
I’m not saying this is an easy process; It requires we be AWAKE and AWARE of the choices we are making breath by breath. What I do know is setting an intention creates the space for expansion to occur.
Until the next time!
