Now that the holidays are over, you're probably sitting around with your pants undone after inhaling too much food, helping your kids put together a complicated present and attempting to clean up after Santa's romp through your home. (Am I right? Or is that just me?) While doing these things, I've been able to reflect on how amazing 2014 has been. In just one year, I kicked off my "Dirty, Sexy, Funny" comedy tour, got my own radio show and married the love of my life. What more could I ask for? 2014 has been such an amazing year that I almost don't want it to end — but I'm looking forward to seeing what the new year has in store!
With a new year come resolutions — better known as promises we have a hard time keeping. How many times have you made a resolution to lose weight, stay fit, quit a bad habit, etc.?
Surely, all of us, at some point in our lives, have attempted to keep up with a resolution, only to be sorely disappointed when we failed. So for 2015, I'm proposing this: Why don't we make New Year's intentions instead of resolutions? The best thing about intentions is that they allow you to see your progress toward a goal as a good thing, eliminating the discouragement you feel if it takes longer than you'd like to accomplish. With intentions, you're able to celebrate the journey to your goal, not just the destination.
I intend to make the new year just as good as — no, even better than — 2014 was. What are some intentions that you have for 2015?
