Happy Holidays to all you lovely creatures!
It is that time of year where we all start thinking about our New Years Resolutions. I have challenged myself to set a goal that is actually attainable this year in hopes that I will succeed instead of giving up after a week. I find that I set a resolution based one something someone or society believes I should change OR I make a goal that is way too big.
This year I have decided to set a New Years Intention instead of a resolution. You can use your intention to cultivate a higher sense of being. I believe this will empower you achieve your goal. I created a mantra and I want to ring true for 2019. Here is how I did it.
First, I asked myself what is it that I want to change in 2019? I do not want to dwell on the past. In 2019 I want to move forward and never look back. Leave all the horrible things that have happened in this past year behind me.
Second, what mood I want to embody in the New Year? I want to feel content, accomplished and stable.
Now it is time to create my mantra. Which is:
I will move forward and not look back. This will help cultivate a feeling of stability, success and being content.
Now that my intentions for the New Year are set, I need some strategies to ensure success. This is what I have come up with for myself:
1. Meditate on my mantra daily
2. Yoga at least twice a week
3. When negative thoughts come up from the past, I will let them go with breath work
4. Say my mantra out loud in the mirror every morning
In the end it is important to do whatever works best for you. Go inward and find what you need in the New Year. I hope all your dreams and wishes come true. HAPPY NEW YEAR to all you beautiful creatures!
