“But Sunshine, why should I make a desire-lution instead of resolution???”
Let’s be real, my people: resolutions don’t really work. The pure definition of a resolution is a firm decision to do or not to do something. But come on… how many decisions in life are really THAT firm? Not a whole-friggin-lot. Because although it sounds wonderful, life happens. And when life happens, we get new information that can change our decisions.
So…it can look like we haven’t “stuck” to our resolution, when in fact all we did is gather more information and decide on something else.
But a desire…do your desires really change? They may become clearer or may morph into something else a little bit different, but I don’t believe that our desires really change. And they certainly don’t come with guilt when we don’t get them.
(Hello? New Year’s resolution guilt? It’s February 2nd…I’ve been expecting you!!!)
What I do believe is that desires grow stronger. The more that we focus on them, the more that we talk about them, the more that we share with the Universe how badly we want them…the more that intensity and the passion for them increases. And it is that passion—that intensity…that powerful energy—that will start to pull what it is that you desire to you.
Getting super focused on what it is that you desire and why you desire it is all a part of manifestation, baby!
So…a desire-lution is better than a resolution because it is a living, breathing idea of what you want. It is an energy that can grow to the point that it consumes you and actually COMES into fruition.
A resolution is pretty static and boring, and it basically comes with a checkbox for “Did I do this or not?”
