New Year's Resolutions? Set an intention instead.

Goodbye, 2020. Hello 2021!

I don't know about you, but I found my list of 2020 resolutions, and had a pretty good laugh over them. On my list:

  • host 18 dinner parties (got 4 in before the shut down!)
  • game night with friends once a month
  • read 20 books
  • visit my grandpas over the summer (nope!)
  • take more barre classes (a thousand nopes!)

…and the best one: Work on being ok with uncertainty. Ha!

Actually, if there is one resolution that I did actually move closer towards, it was this last one. 2020 taught me to lean into uncertainty; I got to practice this intention daily! As a person who has struggled with anxiety, this has brought me a lot of peace and gratitude this past year.

So, rather than setting a bunch of goals to check off, I am going to set an intention for 2021. For me, it is to BE PRESENT. I want to get better at being present right here in this very moment, and to enjoy what is before me.

What is your intention for the year? If you aren't sure or if you want to wear a reminder this year, take a look at this collection of Intentions - there is something in there for everyone!

Wishing you a 2021 that is filled with more peace, health, joy and togetherness.
