I love setting intentions! This year I set my intention of 2019 to be my year of elegant. I choose to set intentions instead of resolutions each year as I often find it difficult to think of something I absolutely must resolve in my life. However, I do have a lot of room for intentions.

To me, an intention gives us the space we need to create questions that we may like to answer. For example, as 2019 opens with the intention of elegance for myself I may ask, “How may I feel elegant throughout my day?” “What may I choose today to receive elegance?”

I answer these questions by creating space in my life to receive the feelings of elegance and the opportunity to experience elegant situations.

New Years Day brought me the feelings of elegance by enjoying a Chicago based pizzeria in the luxury of my home thanks to a thoughtful Christmas gift from my husband’s God Father.

The definition of elegant from the 1828 Webster’s Dictionary states: EL’EGANTadjective [Latin elegans.] Polished; polite; refined; graceful; pleasing to good taste; as elegant manners.

Therefore, I aim to add moments of pleasing experiences more to my life in 2019 by choosing my desired intention of elegant.

I wonder, have you set a resolution this year? How has that worked for you in the past? Or, better yet, how is that working for you now?

If it may not be working in your favor or if you feel as if you have now simply added one more item to your todo list; please allow me to offer you this suggestion.

Set an intention for 2019

It may be any word you desire to feel more of in this year. Do you want to feel more love? Set an intention that 2019 is your year of love.

The key to setting intentions is to listen, be still, have patience, and trust. Perhaps you ask yourself, what do I need to adjust in my life to receive more love? Are you holding on to negative feelings toward a person who is no longer a part of you life?

The act of letting go or forgiveness may be all you need to do to allow more love to show up in your life.

Know that your intention is for you and make it your own. Let go of the resolution and set an intention today.

Be bold, bountiful and prosperous in your New Year!
