Let’s face it: 2016 has been rough. Disappointing, frustrating, paradoxical, stupid, crazy, whatever – all of the above, plus more. I think we’re all ready for a new year, and ready for some new year intentions focused on fixing what we actually do have control over, and just hoping for the best for the whirlwind of worldly problems we can’t do much about.
I’m not a fan of resolutions – they’re too limited, finite and final. Intentions, however, focus on the end game; the idea, the big picture. A resolution would be to lose 5 pounds in a certain time period; an intention would be to live a healthier and more active life. They both have a similar result, but the latter boasts a much more well-founded and all-encompassing approach than the former.
My intentions this year are simple: to keep chasing health, happiness, faith, and financial freedom. To continue building myself, my spiritual wellness, and getting to know God more and more each day 🙂
I’m starting this year so thankful and grateful for a year of laughter, love, adventures and lessons learned. A year of marathons and races and pr’s and soccer games, filled with friends and family and newfound faith.
I love the spirit of new beginnings and clean slates, and I wish you the happiest, healthiest and most joyful new year!
