Christmas is over and on the first day of the new year many will be making resolutions, that unfortunately only a small percentage will be able to keep.
So, what can we do to insure a sustainable change in our lives? Rather than making a New Year’s resolution, I suggest setting an intention instead. Resolutions are usually made from a position of lack — wanting to be something we’re not, so we focus on what we don’t want (don’t want to be unhappy, unhealthy, overweight, single, working at present job, etc.). An intention focuses on what we do want, which is an important difference because I believe life unfolds in the direction of our focus. Focus on your blessings! These are positive thoughts. When you change your thoughts, you change your life.
“Change the way you look at things and the things you look at will change.” These words of Dr. Wayne Dyer, I have found to be true in my own life over and over again. In his book, The Power of Intention, he describes intention not as something you do but as an energy you are part of. Intention is a force in the universe, and everything and everyone is connected to this invisible force.
May this year bring you mammoth abundance, extraordinary health, ridiculous happiness, everlasting love and eruptions of unexpected laughter!
My Intention for 2020:
To use ALL of my God-given talents.
I am going to do what I can, with what I’ve got, where I am. I will continue to ask for God’s grace to guide me on the narrow roads of life’s journey. And, when my journey is up, I plan to arrive riding a shiny red Vespa with my hair blowing in the wind. I’ll have a biscotto in one hand and a cappuccino in the other (leaving the steering to a higher power), screaming at the top of my lungs, “I used everything you gave me! WOW, what a ride! What’s next?
