#FridayFrivolity New Year's Resolutions 2017

#FridayFrivolity New Year's Resolutions

Happy Friday everyone!  I hope you all had a joyful holiday season and are gearing up for a fulfilling, progress-filled 2017.  Our theme at #FridayFrivolity this week is New Year's Resolutions... perfect timing, right??

I posted periodically last year on specific goals / resolutions, but while I think goals can be useful even if they aren't met in their entirety or quite on time -- yay progress in any form! -- 2017 is going to require a pretty big shift in gears for me.  (More on that very soon! 😜 )  Given that, I tried to think more holistically about the changes that are coming, and the things I would like to achieve, and went from there.

If I were to pick one word to define my goals for the coming year, I think it would be "intention."  Y'all know I'm all about living with intention!  ;P  But I think that purposeful-ness will be even more important for me in 2017.  I am so excited to see all the adventures this year will bring!

These goals aren't measurable (since measurability is often cited as a necessary attribute of a good goal), but they ARE attainable, and I'm confident they can help me progress towards the life of intention, purpose, and action that is always the overarching goal encompassing any smaller goals I might set.  And that should work out especially well for me this coming year!

Your turn...

What about you?  Are you making resolutions for 2017?  Are they specific or more holistic?  I want to hear!

If you are still considering what your own priorities might be for the new year, be sure to read my previous post Super Important Stuff About Online Brain Drains, Living Life Deeply, and Purpose or Goals Advice: How to Change Your Life!  I just went back to check out that last one myself, and I'm pleased to see that my current resolutions DO follow my own guidelines for how to set goals that will motivate instead of discouraging you, haha!

And if you need some more motivation heading into the new year, be sure to check out my Free Printables section for inspiration!  I find the fridge or bathroom mirror to be the perfect place for a positive reminder, or even a productive kick in the pants. 😉 

Now on to the link-up! :D
