I desire to be intentional in life. Intentional with how I spend my time. Intentional in enjoying life. Intentional in enjoying the season. Intentional in making healthy food choices. Intentional in making it a priority in getting walks in. Intentional in doing my strength training program. Intentional about spending time reading God's Word. Intentional in my relationships. My relationship with God. My relationship with my Husband. My relationship with my Family and Friends. Intentional in spending time with family. Intentional in spending time with friends. Intentional on going on adventures with my Husband.
We have to let go of just letting life happen to us. We have to be intentional in how we use our time and energy. We have to be intentional in how we react to the things that are out of our control.
I don't wake up feeling good every day. I never know how I am going to feel when I wake up in the morning. When I do feel good and having a better day I've learned how to take advantage of the time. I have developed a mindset of being Intentional. Intentional in goal setting and planning.
