While looking back to the past year, our team wanted to share some things we've learned, and also some of our goals for the new year ahead. Though 2020 has been unlike anything most of us have ever experienced, for a lot of us, it has brought growth and given us perspectives we lacked before.
We don't need as much as we thought we did. By making use of what we have, we realized that simplifying helps us to be much more intentional. For example, we stopped making a lot of unnecessary and mindless shopping trips. This helped us to save money and time, allowing us to spend them on things that actually matter.
We get so caught up with work and life, that we often forget to just pause. We've been reminded this past year to stop and appreciate the little things that we often overlook, and not take things for granted.
We've learned to be more aware of things that are important. Using our voices can help bring change more than we realize. Going forward in the new year, we want to be more active and stand up for things we believe in.
This year, we're setting intentions, not resolutions. We plan to be more intentional with our actions and focus on the present moment.
Resolutions are focused on the future. Intentions are in the present moment.
Resolutions are specific achievements, whereas intentions are lived each day, independent of achieving the goal.
Resolutions tend to be external achievements. Intentions are more about your relationship with yourself and others.
