Every day we are faced with hundreds of thousands of choices. When we wake up in the morning, there are millions of ways our days can go that are affected by the clothes we wear, the food we eat, the things we say to others, and what time we walk out the door.
With so many choices, is it easy to get lost in the confusion. We can slip into monotonous day-to-day tasks and lose sight of the big picture and our bigger purpose. To make sure you never get in a place of complacency or stagnation, I ask you to set a goal for yourself to live intentionally in all you do.
Being intentional with your actions just calls you to re-examine the choices you make in your day to day lives and evaluate how they are contributing to the good of yourself, your family and friends, and even the world.
Everyone will make different changes when deciding to live more intentionally. Some may decide to wake up 20 minutes earlier to spend time with their family before leaving for work, making sure their family knows how much they appreciate time spent together.
Others may make more intentional decisions with their health choices—choosing oatmeal over a doughnut in the morning, or walking to work instead of driving. These small decisions will add up to a higher quality of life, down the road.
In what ways do you think you could live more intentionally? What small decisions could you make each day that will make large improvements in your life or in the lives of others? Comment below and let me know what you will be changing this month to create a better future.
