Resolutions, Goals, or Intentions?

Thursday, December 27, 2012
The glitter has hardly settled around here and there are bits of torn paper and candy wrappers still turning up in random places as we try to restore some order in our house after the Holiday celebrations.

Inevitably we all start to notice the 'new year' is less than a week away and the mind naturally reflects on the previous 12 months.  'What did I accomplish, what do I want to improve...etc.'

Our family tradition on New Years Eve is to make cheese fondue & I try to encourage everyone to set a personal goal.  Additionally, I spend time meditating on setting my own intentions, rather than resolutions.  I like this Yoga Journal article explaining the philosophy behind setting intentions.

Whatever it is you 'intend' to do about the year that lies before us...don't put too much pressure on yourself. Set your course, sail your ship, but stay open to the inevitable winds & currents of change.  Where are you going besides where you already are?
