An Open Letter To 2013

by jenny sansouci on January 1, 2013

Dear 2013,

Here are my intentions for you.

I intend…

To practice gratitude and appreciation.

To believe that everything is unfolding for my greatest good.

To welcome new characters and experiences into my life.

To open myself to love, curiosity, meaningful work, pure enjoyment.

To allow the path to unfold before me – and to show up for it.

To create deep, meaningful connections and nurture the ones I have.

To feel ecstatic joy just because I’m alive.

To let go of analyzing how it should all look, and feel my way through it more.

To give myself radical love, so I can show up with more love to every relationship.

To say yes to life, to feel the brilliant possibilities twinkling in the air.

To know there will be emotional challenges, days when I question everything, when I wonder why, when I think it was all a mistake. But to also know that I am resilient.

To step into the most colorful, beautiful life imaginable. The life that feels authentic and honest and real. To cultivate it gently and without judgment.

To boldly walk through.

To give more.

To live this year as if it were my last (because you never know).

To become more intimate with all of life.

To entertain new perspectives, to be learning, always.

To laugh, relax and savor.

To have the serenity to accept the things I can’t change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

Cheers to the unknown, the openness, the wonder, the courage.

Cheers to feeling different, new, ready.

Cheers to a year of sparkling possibility.

Let’s do this!

This is a wonderful list! And you have a wonderful website here. (I came here through Ritu’s newsletter). 🙂

Wow, I love this list! I hope you don’t mind if I use it for my Intentions for 2013. I added one (I ‘borrowed’ from a favorite author, Brene’ Brown), “Dare Greatly”. Btw, great website and FB page! I am an IIN Student and hope to get mine going soon 🙂
