Goals are focused into the future. They are a specific achievement or destination and they are external.
Intentions are centred in the present. They are about relationship with self as well as others and they are not dependent on achieving anything specific.
Having experienced the season just passed in such a peaceful way and from landing in a space where not much is happening—for this I give heartfelt 🙏gratitude🙏—I want to maintain this new 'going with the flow' mode of operation.
Starting with thankfulness each day, I am only doing what is absolutely necessary to be adult and responsible, and the rest of the time I'm doing only what feels good. This is a daring approach for me having spent years and years in control mode!
I have done my own 'Visioning' (see below) and it really works! Based on this visioning, I have created a vision board and some creative art projects. Before, this would have been my 'work.' and the energy of it would have been forced and filled with effort. This time it is flowing from a gratitude-filled, creative place and the energy is light and easy.
What about you? Are you setting goals and/or intentions for yourself? What are you grateful for right now? Have you ever had a 'vision' of your future?
