Resolutions, Goals, Dreams, Intentions
These words may all mean something different depending on who is reading them but here’s my take on it to get you started.
Resolution – a resolve to do something is a promise to yourself or to another. To me it feels inflexible, restrictive and it becomes something I ‘should’ or ‘have’ to do.
Intention – the other end of the spectrum. Can be thought of as wishy washy. Useful for a feeling and to keep the mood light and vague intentionally.
Dream – aaahh, I think we should all do a lot of this. Time to bin any restrictions, all the reasons we can’t, all the adultness and create some amazing alternative lives.
Goal – more structure and normally with an end date. Generally speaking best if it feels possible. Re-enter the adult world.
These all have a place depending on what it happening for you, how clear you are about what you want or how well you know what motivates you.
