Going on day 3 with those first-of-the-year posts and today I’m going to take about intentions. NOT resolutions. Just 3 intentions that I have set for myself for 2018.
- I will continue to do my best to live an authentic life. This one is about living a life that is fulfilling and happy. It’s about sharing happy stuff and keeping the negative stuff private. It’s about honesty and integrity and learning and growing. It’s about continuing to incorporate my previous yearly words – joy, grace, shine and peace – while adding this year’s word – kind – to my ever growing arsenal of finding ways to cope with the world. It’s about creating and meditating and doing the things that make me add to the good in the world.
- Dale and I sat down on New Year’s Day and creating a list that we have called 18 for 2018. There are fun things on there (travel somewhere new, eat at 2 new restaurants) and home improvement things on there (paint the bedroom, figure out a plan for the front yard). There are some lifestyle improvement things on there like taking walks together and some private things, too. I’m looking forward to setting up a way to track our progress and hoping we can stay the course for the year.
- I’ve pretty much avoided the doctor since my beloved primary care physician retired two years ago. I can’t do this any longer and I need to do things like schedule annual physicals and stuff. I’ve made headway on this one already by calling yesterday and making an appointment with a new doctor for later this month. I hate the thought of going but I owe to myself and my family to do it.
So, those are my 3 things that are loosely connected and all about being happy and healthy in 2018. Do you have a list of intentions? I’d love to hear about the things you are going to focus on in the coming year if you do.
