Back To Being Intentional

There was a snag in my new intentional living. Darn life got in the way and I didn't get in front of it. My mistake, but I am working to get back on track. Thankfully I didn't get too far off track but enough that it was bothering me. 

I wanted to share this with you all so you can see that things happen and you might find yourself stuck but you can find your way back. Don't let getting derailed stop you. 

January was such an intentional month for me. After having such a powerful and productive month you would think I would sail through February. The opposite happened. I made my list for February and forgot about it. A few days ago I saw my NY Resolutions taped on the back of my bedroom door and I thought I need to get back to being intentional. 

First, I opened up my planner and looked at my February goals. No longer will I write goals that I have to do or not do something each day. As soon as you slip one day you can no longer mark that off. Lesson learned.

Second, I found a task on my list that I knew could be completed that day and I tackled it right away. Being able to mark something off my list felt great and just the push I needed.

Third, I am thinking. It's a process. When I started this journey of being more intentional I didn't have a particular long term goal in mind but yet I did have a particular feeling I was hoping to gain from this work. It is indescribable as of now but it is something I want to spend some time thinking on. What exactly will an intentional life look like? What are my overall goals or feelings I hope to gain?  

Hopefully I will be able to mark more goals off my February list and work towards figuring out what exactly intentional will look like for me.


  1. That is so absolutely great! I love seeing other people getting their goals on track! I pray for you and that you maintain your momentum and see positive results!!!

  2. I have been trying the same thing. You will be able to make your goals for feb :O)
