You have had some rough months, weeks, days and you are at your wits end. The victim story hasn’t been serving you well and you figure there must be more to life than the paycheck to paycheck one you are currently living. You finally decide to get yourself out of the slumber and wake up to the potential of what is possible for you. You finaly decide that you are not mediocre and you have more to offer the world than what you are currently offering. Well congratulations to you, you have finally taken the first to what I call the beginning of your intentional life journey. You have now decided to do something about your life, you are now being intentional. So what comes after that empowering decision, well you have to define what intentional living is to you.
Defining what intentional living is, is step 2 of the intentional living journey. What does intentional living mean to you? What is your definition of intentional where living your life is concerned. Intentional living to me is empowered living. It is doing the things I want to do and participating in activities that bring me joy. It is me giving myself permission to question the status quo and to stop comforming to what society says I should do. It is about being the child I once was, the one that had no fear and had the grandest dreams. It is about being open to follow my dreams. Now that you have decided that intentional living is for you and you have defined what that is to you it is time to go all out with your imagination and put those dreams down on paper and describe what that intentional life looks like for you.
This is where most of us fail, we are so used to being realistic about the type of dreams we allow ourselves to have that we end up settling. I am here to say that the life of your dreams is possible it just requires a lot of work. That work starts with you describing it and getting very clear on your vision. If you don’t know where to start you can simply just start by answering this one question. If money was not an issue what would you be doing right now? From there the description of your intentional life will get easier. Take your time, find a quite spot and go all out and describe what an intentional life would look like for you and be as descriptive as possible.
Congratulations, you have taken the first steps of your intentional journey, now what? The work begins when you can figure out a plan to get from where you are now to where you want to be in the description exercise above.
