It’s that time again, where people feel the need to reinvent themselves based on the passing of the year. Goals are different from resolutions. And with those goals we must create intent.
As we all look forward and decide what it is we need to be doing and what we’re changing in the month of January and the year of 2017 I have to stop and wonder why? What is it that makes us think simply by saying I am going to be a better person, or I’m going to lose 20 pounds, I’m going to clean the house daily, or fold the laundry when it comes out of the dryer, what will actually happen? When we haven’t been doing those things for the past 12 months why do we think they will magically begin to happen for the next 12 months?
In magic and a witch’s world, words and intent are everything. When we say something there is intention behind what we say, for we know that there is energy carried within those words in the intent of them is with the energy will follow. So when I say I’m going to do the laundry, I mean I’m going to do the laundry. However, I am still responsible for the actions that go with that intent. When I do not follow the intent of the words, then what karma is for. So then what do I do when 2017 rolls around and everybody else is setting resolutions for themselves? I set goals.
What is the difference you might ask? Well there are several things that I do that are probably different the first is I make a list of those things that I want to accomplish. Then usually have that list somewhere in my planner or on a vision board where I can see it. The next then of course is a vision board or even just a blog, or a page with some pictures on it, simply shows me what it is I am aiming for. After that I set realistic time frame is for those goals. If Michael is to make sure I fold the laundry after it is washed weekly, well then the dates are weekly for that particular goal. However, since I know I need to lose about 20 pounds going to take a little bit longer. However, I do know that I can set myself at the workout time on a daily basis. It’s workout time will then make reaching my goal a particularly easy task the hard part will be following through on the workout daily. So again the intent is there always the intent is always there. It is the follow-through. So I’m going to share my list of goals for 2017 and then I would love for you to share yours and if you need help in setting some or in setting time lines that are realistic for yourself and by all means please ask for that help I will be glad to offer some assistance.
