I want to experience love, joy peace and trust on all new levels in my life in 2022. My intention is to show up in therapy and in life consistently, in 2022. I will show up in ways that I get the work done in my inner world, and in my outward behavior, so that I make it possible for myself to begin experiencing an abundance of love, joy, peace and trust this coming year. I intend for world, to feel and gain strength from these positive energies, coming out of me. I want to consistently follow the light inside of me, remembering always that my “light,” is the presence of my eternal essence. I intend to disengage from maladaptive and unskillful coping tool, in order to highlight my newer skills, which I have been successfully practicing for some time now. I intend to challenge my inner critic’s harsh words. I intend to trust and ask my wiser self for guidance. Instead of listening to the harsh words of my inner critic, my wiser self will help me offer myself compassion. Instead of following my “Nothing MattersPart” or “My Rebel Part” into (impulsivity, anger, rage, reactivity, revenge, retaliation, self recrimination, shame) and into a “burn myself down,” scenario……I, instead intend to listen to my wiser self guiding me to breathe, to be still, to observe, to feel, to sit with it, to respond, to love, to forgive, to be kind, TO BE PRESENT. I intend to commit to play till the end of the “game.” I intend to move the “ball” forward for MY mental health team. Since, I have a major triggering event coming up, that I have no control over…. I intend to remember that no one can control my behavior except me. I will remember to take breaks from triggered states, soothe myself or ask for help. This is also a general rule of my safety plan which I intend to stay on PERMANENTLY. I intend to bring light and happiness to my loved ones and to be kind, always, to those around me. I intend to be less self- absorbed by focusing on gratitude and compassion understanding and kindness toward others. I intend to grow my relationship with God through all of the personal actions I now undertake, especially through my new personal prayer life. I intend to grow my relationship with myself, which is the ultimate intention of these other than my intention toward God. I intend to continue integrating all of my parts with acceptance and love so that I may become wholly integrated, safe and at peaceful with myself.
