Hi all, welcome to 2023! I wanted to talk about
At this time of the year we can start setting ourselves up with strict goals/ resolutions, which in some ways is a good thing, but it can be upsetting if you aren't able to follow through. This can create problems, or the feeling that you just aren't good enough, worthy enough, or are in someway less than. I don't want you to do that to yourselves, go easy, be kind to yourselves.
Try to have intentions instead. Intentions are adaptable.. You can mess these up, they don't have to be perfect and aren't as "all or nothing" as resolutions can be... Intentions are softer and kinder to who you are, where you are and how you feel. We don't always have all of the energy in the world, we aren't always well enough or have the strength to complete a list of goals, so don't put so much pressure on yourself Remember my posts on black and white thinking... Life isn't black and white, it's grey, colourful and nuanced.
Take care all, and how are you today? I will post a check in post later on, so have a think about it.
Would you prefer resolutions or intentions?
Can you relate to anything I have written in the design?
How do you feel going into 2023?
