For the first time in all of my 29 years, I am so looking forward to the month of January. Previously, in my old life, my only goal for the year was to hit my targets in work and make more money. Although this made me satisfied for a month or two it always faded away and I began to realize that my intentions were not aligned to what would actually make me happy ("Mo money, mo problems!")
Now that I enjoy what I do in life, setting goals and making plans for the year ahead is an exciting task and not something I feel disheartened about. I have learned so much about myself in the last year as I have been challenging myself to develop. I have been aware of my struggles, my patterns, my triggers. I want to become a better person. I want to continue growing.
So here are my Intentions for 2018
Rachel Brathen aka Yoga Girl suggests splitting your intentions into 4 categories;
3: Personal Development
Definition of intention
1: a determination to act in a certain way
I believe it all begins with an intention. Intention is higher thought that sets no limitation on the mind and body's abilities. I enjoy goal setting for smaller tasks in life but the big stuff requires belief and purpose.
Under each main intention I add specific action items or changes that I want to make or sub-goals to help me get there. I consider my list below my overall game plan for 2018!
