Intentional Intention

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.

One thought on “Intentional Intention”

  1. Anna, no one ever reads our blogs, have you noticed? So I thought I’d just drop in and say hey.

    Hey.

    As usual, you make me laugh out loud: “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.”

    And then I thought about how I ate pretty much an entire peanut butter cake with chocolate cream cheese icing all by myself a couple of weeks ago (over a number of days) followed up with crossword puzzles till after midnight. Self-care? It’s not.

    Anyway, hang in there. Maybe we can help each other listen to our personal inner voices so we can be really present where we are, at least between the hours of 12:30-1:45 on Tuesdays and Thursdays. ❤
