I’m not sure I would hang it on my wall, but I love the idea of this poster by Emily McDowell. I’ve decided not to make any New Year’s resolutions this year. Instead, I’ll be coming up with a single overarching theme to carry me through to 2014. Once I figure out what that theme will be (I have a pretty good idea now), I’ll be sure to share it with you.
However, I’d like to take a moment to think about my intentions for 2013. Emily writes that intentions are stronger than resolutions, and a little introspection is good for the soul. Here’s how I would complete my own Declaration of Intention:
This year, I will focus on what I have rather than on what I don’t have. I will let go of unrealistic expectations and embrace uncertainty. I will honor my relationships and love myself in spite of my perceived flaws. I will stand up & share my beliefs with the world!
How would you fill out your Declaration of Intention? Please share your version in the comments below — let’s get introspective together!
PS: Speaking of New Year’s resolutions, I shared the ones that I constantly make but can never keep over on Lifetime Moms.
