New years always bring about a swarm of resolutions, lifestyle changes, and posts about looking forward. Sometimes they only last a few weeks, while sometimes they’re serious commitments that create a positive shift in a person’s life. It can be hard to discern which posts on my Facebook feed are simply “in-the-moment” intentions that won’t last, and which are born of serious introspection and firm dedication to making a change. That’s why I’ve hesitated to post anything on my social media relating to the ending of one year and the beginning of the next. I don’t want to fall into the trap of being too excited about new beginnings and letting the excitement cloud my head.
My blog is titled “Live Intentionally” and last year I focused on “intent” without including much of the “living.” I had so many great ideas to work on, and I started most of them without finishing any of them. I wrote posts about things I was going to do, and ideas I had, but I had no progress reports to back them up.
So, in 2016, I’m not going to post about my intentions, or the resolutions I’ve made for myself. I’m going to post about what I’m doing as I do it, and the end result when I complete a particular challenge or goal of mine. I’ve already started on some life-changing journeys for myself this year and I’m going to finish them.
I can’t wait to share my victories with all of you.
