So . . . on Monday I talked about setting intentions and goals for the year. And on Tuesday I explained about how I play around with my "word" at the beginning of the year. Today? I've got another kinda fun little planning/intention setting thing to tell you about. If that's not your jam (as Adriene would say), just scroll to the bottom of this post and you can look at my current knitting project.
For the rest of you? Let's go!
This is a fun little exercise that is always included in Ali Edwards' One-Little-Word January prompt (which tends to focus on getting to know/exploring your word). I call it . . . More and Less. (I've done this every year since 2011.) The basic premise is to think about the year ahead by asking yourself two simple questions:
- What do I want MORE of?
- What do I want LESS of?
It's easy, kinda fun to think about, and . . . you get pretty close to your inner motivations and intentions by doing it! Here's what I came up with for myself this year:
If you haven't already done something like this for 2021, now is a perfect time. It's a full moon (always a great time to review your intentions and check in with yourself). It's the end of a month. It's almost the beginning of the month. And it's still very much the beginning of a new year.
Give it a try! Let me know what you think. And if you've already done this exercise, what are some of the things you want more and less of in 2021?
FYI - If you're into this kind of thing, Mercury goes retrograde starting tomorrow (through February 21).
And for those of you just here for the knitting . . . here you go! (I think it'll be finished later today.)
Here's to a weekend filled with just what you need . . . nothing more and nothing less!
