While reading this last newsletter of 2021, I hope you are somewhere nice: sitting on a beach sipping a cocktail, rugged up in front of a fire or safely couped up with your family. My wish for you is that you have space to reflect on the 2021 that was, reflect on what served you and what didn’t and being able to go into the New Year with intention and renewed power.
I saw this post by Yung Pueblo – author and mediator – the other day and it inspired me to think about my own intentions for 2022:
let yourself change
make rest a high priority
say no without feeling bad
stop jumping to conclusions
do not rush important things
build your own idea of success
make more time for key friends
appreciate the small steps forward
stay aligned with your highest goals
take the risk when your intuition says yes
build with people who are open to growth
What stands out for me is that we treat ‘rest’ like something we have to earn. We work so hard that we often can’t enjoy resting but simply try to get just enough sleep to do it all over again.
In 2022 I want to use my energy better. I want to rest often and make it a priority so that I can enjoy my work and free time. I will not feel guilty for resting or taking some time for myself. I know it will make me happier and more present for the people around me.
What are your intentions for 2022?
Our team at Intact Teams wishes you a wonderful rest of 2021 and a safe journey into the New Year. We can’t wait to see you and make 2022 a happy and successful one together.
