Setting Your Intentions for the New Year
As you step into the new year, do you have trouble choosing a new year’s resolution? New beginnings are filled with hope, opportunities and ways to give back to your communities. But how do you choose? We love the simplicity of choosing a single word or phrase for the coming year. One word, one goal, one intention can be an extraordinary catalyst for change and transformation. It becomes more of a direction than a destination that guides you throughout your year so that every action has meaning behind it.
In this new year, we challenge you to choose the word “life” or the phrase the “gift of life” as your one intention or goal. Daily, we at Donor Alliance strive to save lives through organ and tissue donation and transplantation. The “gift of life” made possible because of donors and donor families who said yes to organ, eye and tissue donation is our intention in 2022 and every day.
Want an achievable, feel-good set of intentions that captures what you would like to focus on in your life in 2022? We have an awesome list of intentions to get you started and you’ll be giving hope to the nearly 2,000 people in our region waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant in the coming year. The best part: it will only take you a few minutes to register your donation decision and cross “Say Yes” off your list! “Tell My Family” is second and very important. You’ll want to have that conversation over coffee or dinner and let them know your donation decision right away. Finally, “Volunteer” with us and become an Advocate for Life. As the heart and soul of our organization, we need your help to continue our grassroots advocacy at community events and to share your stories across Colorado and Wyoming in the new year. Oh, and don’t forget, all the fun we have along the way!
Focus on the Gift of Life
When you focus on the gift of life, fulfilling your intentions is easy. Did you know that just one donor can save and heal more than 75 others through organ and tissue donation? We bet that you know someone in your community that has a connection to donation or that has received a transplant. Some people don’t even know that they are recipients of donation, but it is time to honor those donors and their families for their heroic and selfless decisions.
As you get ready to tackle or choose your intentions for 2022, we encourage you to learn more about organ, eye and tissue donation and sign up to be a donor. Your heroic decision can save and heal lives. To register your decision in Colorado, go to DonateLifeColorado.org or to register your decision in Wyoming, go to DonateLifeWyoming.org.
