My Word

I had a somewhat overwhelming and annoying day yesterday and thought that in order to get myself back in line I needed to spend some time on myself and what exactly I want to be doing moving forward. I am feeling a bit lost once again- not knowing where I am or what I am doing beyond being a wife, Mom, etc., which seems to be constantly all consuming for me. Don’t get me wrong, it is intensely rewarding, but I need something to refill MY spiritual well. I thought I would concentrate on my word for 2010, not for anyone/everyone else, but for ME. I think I have my word- intentional.

More and more I realize the key to happiness and success is in being INTENTIONAL. Life moves too fast to be only reactive. If you want to be better at something, you will have to work at it. If you want to change something, you will have to work at it. Of course, for most of us, the list is long. I want to be successful in my marriage, parenting, work, health, finances and the list goes on. So for each of those things I need to be deliberate, intentional, purposeful- all have the same meaning and the same concept. I have to have intention and purposeful action set aside in each area that I want to achieve more.

The truth is that I just know that I need to be intentional to get what I want. I have to constantly keep in mind however, that sometimes you have to do what you don’t want to do to get what you want to get.

So, there you go my word (probably one of many) for 2010.
