I used to hate to make goals and resolutions for a new year. I had gotten so used to failing to reach my goals and resolutions that I stopped doing them. I hated the idea of goals because it felt like having a goal and writing it down was the most concrete way to determine that I was a failure once I couldn't reach my goal. I dreaded making resolutions because even the process made me feel like a complete and total failure. Until I did this one thing. I learned how to align my goals with what I truly wanted in soul and spirit. Once I learned to cast off the expectations of others and my misplaced desires, I was able to come up with goals that I truly wanted. Instead of feeling like I didn't have the motivation or wondering if there was something wrong with me... I asked 3 questions. Do I really want the goals and resolutions I came up with. Are they truly aligned with my soul? What do I truly want? What are the actions I need to take to achieve what I truly want? Once I aligned my purpose, desires and intentions, everything flowed more freely.
