Setting intentions is a great way to start of the new year and brings clarity to your desires.
If you are not happy with some parts of your life, you have the power to change. But first, you need to figure out what it is you want. This starts with doing the work and asking the tough questions. Until you acknowledge what is working and not working—your habits, relationships, job, self-care routines, creating boundaries, self-talk, etc., you may not grow into the person you truly want to be.
Here is the question, Do you feel comfortable and confident with who you are at this very moment? If the answer is not a soul-booming yes, then there’s some work to do. But only you can figure out what to change, alter, or delete. I want to engage in more activities to nourish my mind, body, and soul and release ones that do not benefit me. Many people start out the new year with intentions, such as moving more, eating less, or learning new things. If you engage in activities that bring you joy, you are more likely to succeed.
And write down your intentions. There’s something that happens when you actually transcribe your thoughts instead of just thinking about them. It makes you more aware and brings out into the open your true desires. I have discovered some unexpected messages through writing.
To help you get started, ponder these questions.
What do you want to accomplish is 2022?
Who are you meant to be?
What do you want in your life? I mean, what do you really want?
What makes you happy?
What brings you hope?
What gives your life meaning?
What is your purpose?
What makes you feel fulfilled?
What am I afraid of?
Am I waiting for something to happen to really live my life?
I hope some of these questions resonate with you and lead you to live a more happy, peaceful, and authentic life. That is my 2022 wish for you. To find your joy!
