This week I will be meditating on the word INTENTIONAL.
Everything I do this week, I want to do it purposefully, meaningfully
Too may times, we allow things to just happen… and we simply react. Life is fully of uncertainties and unplanned occurrences but that does not mean we should not strive to be intentional about the things that we do have some degree of control over.
We can be intentional about being kind, sharing, loving and even giving. By choosing to be intentional about it, we would put some thought into it to make it happen. If I am intentional about being kind … I’m not waiting for the opportunity to present itself, but rather, I will go out of my way, and out of my comfort zone and be deliberate about my act of kindness.
If you were to become intentional, how would your life change? You may live more, laugh more, or love me! But an even bigger question is, how would the lives of the people around you be affected by your intentional living?
I want to be more intentional about PARENTING: This would involve spending more time with them. Just them, no distractions, not tuning them out because I’m really focusing on something else. But dedicated time, playing, singing, reading and just listening to them.
I want to be more intentional about my SPIRITUAL LIFE: Dedicated time for pray and Bible Study. Not just a few minutes before I fall asleep after I would have done everything else, but times when I am fully alert, engaged and full of energy.
I want to be more intentional about CHORES: As a mom who work and study with a 3 year old and a one year old… keeping up with chores is hard! Laundry everywhere … But I will be intentional at staying on top of things. I need to spend some time intentionally De-cluttering things and getting rid of things we no longer need as well. I also wanna be a bad-ass meal planner!!!! I eat healthiest when I prep and plan my meals.
I want to be more intentional about my ME-TIME: I’ve come to realize that having my me-time is good for my sanity… I must be intentional about this if I want to remain sane!
Thinking about becoming more intentional?? Please share your thoughts and thanks for stopping by 🙂
