Last week I was feeling OFF...
Living a life without intention is like being on a canoe, floating down the river without a paddle.
Without intention, you go wherever life takes you, just reacting to the external things that happen.
With intention, you get to choose where you want to go, what you want to experience in life and how you want to feel as you move through your days.
Intentions are different than goals. Goals are what you want to accomplish. Intentions are why you want to accomplish them and how you want to feel as you accomplish them.
I love setting intentions for new beginnings. The beginning of the year. The beginning of summer. The beginning of the week. The beginning of the day. The beginning of a trip.
My questions are always:
How do I want to feel?
What do I want to experience?
Last week I was feeling OFF. The beginning of summer had me unsettled and feeling like I was on that canoe without a paddle! So I took some time to set some summer intentions (and I had my kids do the same). Immediately, I felt better. More grounded. More in control of my life.
Summer is about flexibility and freedom and flow and FUN, and it is also about making sure I get the connections I long for and the self-care I need. I love to feel connected to my people AND also grounded in my self-care practices and moving forward with this work.
What are your intentions for the next couple of months?
Love and light,
