It is during this very time that we are asked about our resolutions.
What our goals are for the year?
What will we aspire to achieve?
What will we accomplish?
What will we change?
Since I didn't set any resolutions for 2013 other than...
Promising myself a lifetime resolution to my health and well-being...
I did set up a plan. (For what deems appropriate for me, right now.)
My plan is to...
- Let life happen; while...
- Focusing on living in (and savouring) the moment; and...
- Setting intentions for myself as I go along. (Be it in health, fitness, professional or personal development.)
I can sit here and list some goals/resolutions out for you but...
I wouldn't be speaking my truth not knowing if I actually want to pursue them.
Will I compete at the GNC OPA Natural Championships that I qualified for back in June? I don't know. Maybe.
Will I run another race? A 10K, half-marathon, or a marathon (which I have thought about)? I'm not sure, but I will continue to run along and see where it will lead me to.
Will I press the 50's by year's end? I will not sacrifice form for weight, but I WILL continue to train hard.
Will I begin/finish on a few personal projects I have thought about? I will do what I can in hopes to complete those things that seem most fitting for me during this phase of my life.
|Finally de-cluttering and decorating the spare bedroom I had told myself I would do.|
It was actually a New Year's resolution I made for myself back in 2012.
(And on my mind for a couple of years before that lol)
Don't get me wrong...
I do love and value the idea of making resolutions but...
I am realizing that perhaps January 1 isn't the perfect timing for me to set them. (I've never been great at sticking to my resolutions so perhaps it's a sign lol)
I don't want to feel like I have to choose what my goals are right at this moment because 'it's the season'...
But what I do want to do is be sure that when I do set my intentions for the day, week, month or year that...
They are true to my being, down to the very core. (And from there, I can put a plan into place, for me, knowing that the timing is right.)
In addition to setting intentions...
My plan is to set words of intent as I go along throughout the new year. (To keep me focused in whatever it is I aspire to achieve.)
As I have seen somewhat of a trend with the words I have repeated in my writing in 2013:
- Slow down
- Disconnect; and not limited to...
And that word which I have chosen is:
Faith in myself and all that I can accomplish in every aspect of life.
Faith that what I do, and the choices I make will result in my development as a person.
Faith that life will work out as it will, knowing that there is meaning for what is, and what will be.
If anything, for me...
I believe that to be a good start for 2014 :)
|Faith that with opens eyes, I will see what there is to be seen.|
So what about you?
Do you have any New Year resolutions, intentions or words to live by?
