A Woman with Intention

Posted on the 18 May 2016 by Krickeyb

live intentionally

I have always had one consistent goal in life: to live with intention.

This seems obvious, right? Live intentionally? Really, Kristin? YES! I know it may be obvious to live intentionally, but think about this… how exactly are you “living” your life?

By definition (Merriam-Webster), intention is “the thing that you plan to do or achieve; an aim or purpose.”

When I say “live with intention,” I mean to live a purpose driven life. Anyone can wake up, go to work, come home, and repeat that process on a daily basis. If you have a passion or a talent, how are you leveraging that to live intentionally? What is your purpose when you wake up?

For example, I love to write. The way I write on my blog is not the same as how I write a paper for graduate school or how I write a draft for my novel. One way I live with intention is by leveraging my passion for writing in a multitude of ways. I write for myself. I write for my readers. I write for school. I write for friends. So on and so forth… you get my point. I give much of my time and focus to my passions on a DAILY basis.

Almost every second of the day I spend doing something that will help me achieve a goal. Begin each day, week, month, or even year with goals. Keep these goals in mind when your alarm goes off and your eyes open to begin the day. Utilize your phone’s memo application, a pad of paper, or even your hand to write down what your plans are for the day.

By creating a list or a set of goals, it allows you to hold yourself accountable and remain focused. It allows you to live each day with intention.

Intention can be interpreted differently depending on the person. If living intentionally for you means ensuring a household chore is completed each day so your weekend is free for whatever you want… then so be it. Complete smaller goals in order to achieve larger goals. Simple as that.

Completely unwarranted life lesson from a married woman #5: Each day is a gift.  Have a purpose. Have a plan. Live intentionally.
