Wow, The saying goes,"The best laid plans.." I had the '"best" intention of writing on my blog, at least weekly...but as one can see...did not happen! So, what do we do when we don't follow through with our intentions? I choose to allow for the process to evolve and not become bogged down with the "why" and "how come?" I choose to remain committed to my intention. I choose to begin where I left off. Again, having an intention to write/blog, at least weekly, with some interesting, perhaps informative, creative, humorous topics related to yoga and living with passion and purpose. So, you might ask yourself, "What is an intention?" It is an aim, plan, purpose, and a commitment to carrying out an action or actions in the future. Have you ever taken a yoga class and the teacher might ask you to "set an intention." Setting an intention can help manifest action, direction and energy towards goal completion. Your intention might be really simple like, "increase awareness to my breath," or "ask my older neighbor if she would like some help today?" How about the intention of, "to not react." Your intention might be more complex and detailed like, "To build a world renowned health center," or "to go back to school." You can make an intention at anytime, anywhere, simple or complex. Your intention might be ongoing and you might say it mentally to yourself, you might say it out loud, you might write about it to help with focus and direction. It might be short term, like an intention made in a yoga class, specifically for that time period. Whatever you decide, keep it personal, meaningful and passionate. Keep it real and true. After all, it is your intention. This is your life.
