New Year Resolutions or Good Intentions?

At 51, I am long past making New Years resolutions. After all, they always get broken after a week or two. However, I do like to start each New Year with a fresh start of New Year intentions. There might not seem to be any difference between a Resolution and an Intention, but it’s a psychological difference. A resolution to me says I MUST do something. I either do it or I don’t. And when I falter, then I’ve failed, so what’s the point in continuing. An intention, to me is something that I WANT to do. There isn’t a simple pass or fail criteria. At the end of the determined period of time, success is measured by how much further I am forward than I was at the starting point.
