I’m not a New Year’s resolution person- I have never been. I have realized recently though, that if I want to accomplish anything in my life I need to start setting goals and milestones to get there. The media always talks about the “word of the year”. For me, I’m trying to set a word, not for the year, but for this season of my life-
Living with Intention.
These four intentions for February may seem silly or small. However, each has been chosen with care to help me move constantly forward and upward.
1: Read New Books.
When it comes to literature, I always am drawn to the classics and I don’t mind rereading my favourite volumes again and again- the pages seem like old friends. I am setting the intention to read NEW books. Books that I haven’t read before and ones that are written in this decade. Do you have any suggestions for me? I’ll have a list of the ones I’m enjoying coming soon.
2: Grow Professionally.
Having recently graduated, I’m in the job market. I don’t want my learning to stop with receiving that one piece of paper though. I have a list of certificates to work towards to make me foremost in my field.
3: Try Color in Wardrobe.
At some point a few (or several) months back, I started wearing black non-stop- not just black but the same uniform day in and day out. I went from full on maximalism to straight up minimalism. I need to get out of the rut and incorporate some lighter shades again.
4: Do more DIY.
I used to craft and create all the time. It’s always been an integral part of me. I want to start more home projects now that I have my own residence. Send me all the decor pins you have!
What are your current goals? Are you living with intention?
