If you decided that you actually do want to set some intentions for the upcoming year, it's not too late.
For anyone who feels like they've lost a little bit of shine somewhere along the way this year, let’s take a moment and remember that now is as good a time as any to turn it all around. It’s supposed to be fun. Otherwise, what’s the point? Let’s focus on generating fun and love and baller moments. Because you living a shiny life will help other people to live a shiny life, and then we can all have shiny lives.
While you’re here, let’s harness a little of the New Year’s energy to do some evaluating and set some intentions for the next year. No pressure, but I've really grown to love this ritual.
Here are some questions to ponder if you'd like a little help to help get the ball rolling:
What worked for you? What are three things that worked well this year.
What didn’t? What are three things you can let go of in the coming year.
What’s one thing you didn’t get to try, and still want to on 2017?
What’s one thing you’d like more of? Can you put some time, money, attention, or energy into it to give it a chance to grow this year?
This is totally enough to frame your year. You can always write more and/or create specific goals, but this is a great and impactful place to start. It's a way to remember the things that made you feel good and focus on generating more of that, while letting go of the things that no longer serve you.
Also, this shouldn’t be stressful. Just spend enough time on it to jog your memory a little, get some perspective, and maybe inspire something to focus on in 2017. First answers are always best. And remember, there’s no way to do this wrong.
Now, put your answers where you will see them frequently. In your phone, your planner - maybe type them up, make them pretty, and hang them on your wall. Words have power, so let’s make sure these words have a chance to seep into your consciousness on a regular basis.
So, take some time over the next couple of days and get to reflecting, planning, and writing. You don’t have to share what you wrote with anyone you don’t want to, but declaration can change the energy behind your intentions. You can always message them to me if you want to add a little power to them, but aren’t totally ready to go public.
Happy New Year, everyone! Let’s go be shiny ballers.
