Wow, here we are again, on the cusp of another new year—a new year chock-full of possibilities and new beginnings. I'm not one for New Year's resolutions or setting goals. I find the idea of them rigid and consequently, challenging to achieve.
I prefer to set intentions. The word intention is more flexible to me. I tend to associate it to the journey itself, while the word goal focuses on the result. Now, that is just the way I perceive these words, and it may not reflect the way others view them.
Anyhow, over the past few weeks, I've been thinking about what I want my intentions and focus for 2013 to be. After much mulling over, I've decided that I want it to be about finding discipline, becoming productive, and completing things (yes, I am a huge procrastinator) and I think that the easiest way to achieve this is to live life one moment and one breath at a time, to stay in the ebb and flow of now. I firmly believe that this is where all our power resides.
It is a simple principle to put into practice. For example, when I fold the laundry, I will focus on each item as I am folding it, and not let my mind pull me away until my task is completed. Otherwise, I end up going around in circles and feeling like I'm accomplishing nothing.
So this blog will be about that journey. A place to post about my experiences, discoveries, successes, as well as other random ramblings, and I do warn you, I love to ramble. :)
What about each of you? Are you an in the moment kind of person, or a wanderer? And, if anyone wants to share their intentions/resolutions, I'd love to hear about them!
Thanks for dropping by, and I hope to see you again! (Yes, I am an exclamation point junkie and proud of it! lol)
