Set Intentions - Not Resolutions

So, here we are, diving into a brand-spankin' new year. Let's ditch the old-school resolutions, shall we? They're like that strict gym teacher from high school – no fun and a bit too demanding. Instead, let's talk about setting intentions a more heart-centered approach to navigating life, especially when facing the unique challenges that come with a cancer diagnosis.

Here's how we do it:

Get Personal and Specific: Forget one-size-fits-all goals. No strict diets or exercise routines. What's lighting your fire right now? What really matters to you? Is it busting out laughing when you least expect it? Maybe it's diving into a new hobby, trying out meditation for 2 minutes a day, or connecting more with your favorite people.

Go with the Flow: Life's a wild ride, especially with a cancer tag-along. Intentions give you the wiggle room you need to roll with the punches and adapt.

Fist Bumps for Small Wins: Every little victory counts, my friend. Celebrate those wins, no matter how small.

Be Your Own Bestie: Cut yourself some slack. You're on an epic journey, and it's okay to stumble, that's how you learn. Treat yourself like you would your bet friend – with love and understanding.

Stay in the Now: Intentions keep you rooted in the present. They nudge you to soak up today's magic, instead of getting caught up in the worries of the what-if's.

Squad Up: Share your intentions with a trusted pal or your ride-or-die crew. Having someone in your corner, cheering you on, makes all the difference.

So, my dear, as you strut into this new year, let your intentions be your guide. They'll lead you towards a life lived with purpose, vitality, and a heart full of love.

Cheers to an amazing year ahead!

Sending you all the positivity and strength,
