Start With Intention
I've decided that's no way to start off the day so I decided that today was the day I was changing that. Now, don't get me wrong. I'm still sitting here on the couch at 9:30 in the morning watching Kelly & Michael because I love them so but i've started living intentional this morning. I've already done so much that I'm not in that glazed over state of mind. I'm in a much more cheerful, clear, happier state of mind.
My morning started off with a text message from my sister in law around 8. I grabbed my phone, looked at the message and started to check social media but decided against it. I put it back down and instead decided to pray. My mornings start off so much better when I spend that quiet time being thankful for everything i've been blessed with and praying for the health and happiness of my loved ones. After that I did make my way downstairs, turn on the t.v., power up the computer, and started a cup of coffee then I opened up the back door and fed the squirrels a handful of peanuts.
I sat down on the couch, computer in lap, Golden Girls on t.v. and instantly got a good morning message from my sweet friend Candi. I chatted with her for a minute then decided I was going to start yoga this morning. I saw a yoga challenge for the month on Instagram and decided that was the one I was going to start with. So I pulled it up on my iPad and did the challenge while watching Golden Girls. Win! Win! It's amazing how much better I feel now that i've started with those simple changes to my morning.
I'm going to stop going through the motions of life, doing just what has to be done and start being more intentional about it. I think if we all do this our days will be so much better. Happiness is a choice we all have the ability to make so go out there and Choose Happiness!!
How do you live intentionally?
