Not a New Year’s Resolution

Not a New Year’s Resolution

Personally, I’m done with resolutions. They’re just more line items to add to the to-do list. Instead, I choose an intentional theme/image to guide me through each year. Last year, it was “Momentum.”

This year, it’s “Flow.”

I see myself fluid in mind and body, assuming a posture both mental and physical that will carry me gracefully through the world. (This is the year I will unlock those hip flexors!)

And speaking of flow, our Hill Country creek is flowing again after the fall rains. As you can see in this video, the creek reminds me how to navigate the dips and curves and rocky patches of life with ease and strength.

Tell me, any one else working with themes/images? What are they?

    I love to have a theme for my year also! Last two years were “Conquering Fear” and “Putting It All Together,” and this year is “Stepping Up.”

    I do know what you mean about resolutions– they don’t work for everyone, but I think that done correctly they can be very powerful, especially if someone is READY for change.

    Happy New Year, Anne!

    Oh, I love “stepping up,” Lorie, particularly because it is richly physical as well as conceptual. Here’s to 2010.

    I didn’t have one last year but I could use both connecting & flowing this year: “Connecting” is working really well for me already in 2010! Who knows where downstream I’ll end up or how quickly the stream will flow? Thanks for giving me different way to look at the New Year. Hope it is a great year for all of us! Melita

    Hi, Melita! I love “connecting,” and it sounds like that’s already happening for you. Send me some of your latest designs.
