Life Changes I Wish I’d Made Sooner

By the time I turned 25, I was sure my life was a single-lane highway.

A single-lane highway with no exits. As far as I was concerned, I was headed in the same direction, with no…

3 Easy Ways to Share Nature With Your Kids This Summer

There’s something about the summer that brings out the fun in kids. Long summer days without any thought of school foster the type of carefree living children relish every year. The only bad thing about the summer is it can go by really fast. As parents, it is important to…

Wow, a New Year and a New Decade!!! What an exciting time. It's hard to believe that I am near the end of the first work week of the new year. This week I spent time going back through my calendar. I used this time to help me reflect and think about 2009. There were aspects of 2009 that brought joy, sorrow, frustration, happiness, etc.
After reflecting on the past year I became excited with the possibilities of 2010. I am ready to let go of 2009 and start to think about my plan for 2010. A little light bulb went off in my head when I read a post by Ariane de Bonvoisin. Instead of making resolutions, this year I am going to live INTENTIONALLY.

Intentions are goals and objectives. I am determined to live each day, week, month, quarter and the entire year intentionally. My actions, attitude, conversations, and the people I surround myself with will propel me toward achieving my 2010 objectives. Each new day is a new opportunity for me to move toward my goals. It doesn't matter if these action steps are big or small. What matters is that I am making progress.

Being in tune with myself will help shape my intentions. This means I will be able to recognize if my intentions need to be shifted. Constant evaluation is critical to living intentionally. Intentions are quite different from traditional resolutions. Typically with resolutions, we make a list of those things we want to accomplish or change. The problem with this is our lives are ever changing and are fluid. Because of this, it is good to recognize when we need to change directions. In fact, recognizing a need for change and invoking change is courageous. It's living intentionally!

Take the next couple of days and the upcoming weeks to truly define what your intentions are for 2010. You don't have to accept what life brings you. Within you lies the power to live INTENTIONALLY!

Good Morning Robin. I absolutely love this post and agree with you 150%! I have been roaming around the sites reading what most people are writing about their plans for the new year. I have been pleasantly surprised with the lack of "resolutions" and the abundance of determination most bloggers are talking about. Some talk about accepting themselves, others about being nice, and this here, living intentionally hits home. I believe in living intentionally, living because you want to live, and doing because you want to do. Thank You for sharing your thoughts with the world. This is one blog I'll have to book mark for future reading.

Have a fantastic year!!
Tere
