Intentions

2015 wrap up

2015 wrap up

Usually around this time of year I put some time aside to do my annual year-end ritual and also get really clear on my intentions for the coming year.  Check out my process here

However, I have been feeling some resistance about sitting down and actually doing it this year. Part of me has been feeling a lot of pressure as there’s only a couple weeks left in the year and I was still holding out for something big to happen. 2015 was the year of reward and abundance after all, so where is it???

Prep for the coming year with intention setting

Prep for the coming year with intention setting

I’ve never been one to create New Year’s resolutions. It just seemed like the thing people do in theory not fully in practice. Maybe they stick with it at first but 3 weeks or a month down the road they are back to their old ways. Something about it always seemed inauthentic to me and somewhat forced. Usually like a burden people take on because they feel it is something they HAVE to do which makes it more difficult to maintain for the long term. Think about it. If you add yet another thing to your ‘to do’ list, you’re more likely to create a feeling of stress around it because it’s something else you have to get to or check off the list. As opposed to actually creating a practice that you feel good about and you WANT to maintain because you enjoy it and it makes you feel good.
