2014: Intentions

your-life-quote

When I look back at some of the goals I’ve made over the last few years, I few of them are achievable goals that can be tracked and measured, like saving money. But more often I find my list is full of good intentions of how I want to live my life. I’m a detailed person and lover of making lists, so I still have a few monthly goal lists and projects to try and complete by the end of the year, but I also want to ensure I don’t get too lost in the details and lose sight of things that make life enjoyable (although crossing off things on my to do list is quite fun). This year I thought I would change things up and declare a few of my intentions for 2014.

Invest in me – I make a lot of promises to myself that I don’t always follow through with – this year I’m going to keep those promises and invest in my mind and my body…

* Spend time doing things I enjoy (with people I enjoy spending time with) – read, cook, photography, running, learning french, having fun, being silly, laughing often…

* Explore – whether it be discovering new places or revisiting old, I just want to get out and explore as much as I can…

Spend time with family and friends  – last year I was able to visit a lot of family and spend some fun weekends away with friends. I’m always trying to do more of this…

Unplug – some people would say I already unplug a lot because I’m horrible at responding to texts quickly and don’t always answer my phone, but I do want to be make an effort to cut myself off from social media and celebrity gossip sites from time to time and instead catch up with friends on the phone or write good old fashioned letters/send cards…

Do you have any intentions for 2014?
