I don’t set goals-benchmarks-that I must hit.
I do have intentions. That is, visions that I have conjured, that portend a life I’d love to live.
Goals are achieved, driven by fear fueled motivation.
Intentions are received over time.
Goals are often set in a negative pallet: “I won’t eat junk food”. “I’ll quit smoking by…”
Intentions are voiced positively: “I am a smaller person as time passes, I am able to eat less by accounting for calories each day”.
I voice my intentions and then I set out to work on myself. By being calm each day, by affirming my intentions in the morning, by becoming a whole person,
I am ready to rejoice
for receiving my intentions for the day when I sit down in the evening.
