I have never been one to make resolutions...they seem too limiting. And there seems to not be much forgiveness when they aren't met.
What I do believe in is setting intentions. With intentions, there is a freedom for the intention to be expressed in a multitude of ways. And there is a playfulness when exploring the different expressions of an intention...
This year's intention is to love. Intentionally & purposefully...however easy or difficult. I've realized this last week that I'm really good at loving when it's easy, when I'm joyful, and when people are like me. I am terrible at loving when it's hard, when I'm frustrated, and when people make poor choices and are different from me.
I know that love is cultivated in my life through praying, stretching, serving, & creating.
Here's to a lovely 2012
