I know most people did these “resolutions” or “intentions” posts at the beginning of the year. But hey – I’m not most people.
Instead of trying to plan for 2011 during the hectic winter holiday season, I really started my reflection and analysis during January. I like to think that I am not late, just taking my time. The process been really helpful. Generally, I like where I am in my life right now and want to keep improving in a lot of areas.
As a way to focus my energy and improve my life, I have decided to set my intention for 2011 as Happiness. Especially when I am not at work, I am going to do things that make me truly happy. This sounds ridiculous, but it has taken me about a year to really get back to things I enjoy. I am not sure where my life got de-railed, but during January, I realized that I feel more centered than I have in a long time.
Here is a quick list of things that make me happy – in no particular order:
- Creating (knitting, quilting, sewing, baking)
- Physical activity (running, dancing, biking)
- Drinking tea
- Saving money
- Enjoying the Arts (theater, museums)
- Connecting with friends & family
- Traveling (Ireland!)
Going forward, I want to focus my energy and really be happy in 2011.
Have you guys made any resolutions or intentions for 2011? How are they going so far?
