Intentions

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. 

Go rejoice.
