A resolution is to fix a problem, an expression of an opinion. An intention is something you aim to achieve, it’s intrinsically motivated with a purpose. We’re not problems to solve or an opinion to be expressed. We’re flawed humans trying to do our best with what we have. Looking back on the past year to reflect on what went well and what could have gone better will help you in crafting your intentions for the next year. Instead of commanding perfection of yourself, care for yourself, nurture yourself, create a better version of yourself. Stay open-minded and objective.
