We are fresh into 2015 armed with a bunch of resolutions or at the very least an optimistic attitude that this will be “our best year yet.” We vow to exercise more, get a better job, meditate regularly, fall in love, or find a different way to handle our stress. But does this really do us any good? Most of us start the new year with the greatest of intentions, yet by March (or even the second week of January) we may not find ourselves so resolved. We revert back to old patterns and beat ourselves up for not sticking to our resolutions. Could there be a better way to set ourselves for 2015 without ending up with an Expectation Hangover?
YES! We can resolve not to make any resolutions and instead engage in a cocreative process of reflection and intention setting. For the past ten years, I have had a special ritual that does not involve making any kind of resolutions, and I am thrilled to share it with you.
