Goal vs. Intention
I have many goals for myself. I have tangible things I need to achieve. But there are very few heart-driven, mindful intentions I have for myself. I often put my self-care on the backburner and then call eating Chick-fil-a and laying in bed playing Sims until 4 am self-care. It’s not.
I want to be a person who can be perceptive about what my body needs. I want to actually listen to what my body is surely yelling out to me. I want to give it what it needs.
Lately, I have been having a week-long nervous break-down– otherwise known as *~d3pr3$$i0n~*. It’s been a long time since I have felt this horrible and I notice my bad habits but I do not want to listen to what my body needs.
Today in class, I want to set the intention of being present. I feel like I have a million other things on my mind right now but I want to focus on what my heart is doing and where my mind is and try to bring them together in this space. I want to be present during conversations and put my mind and body into the physical place I am in and who I am with.
