My Year to Live Intentionally

Happy New Year!

I love the beginning of a new year. It's a time to start over and look at how you want the next year of your life to transpire. Although a new year often brings resolutions, I'm not a big fan of them. That being said, I still want something to set my year off right. What I've decided to do this year is choose a word to live out throughout 2018.

MY WORD: INTENTION

 
This next year, I want to live my life with intention. I want to set goals and a plan for my life and go after it. This past year, I experienced a lot of changes. I spent my year going with the flow, without much a plan (something very outside my wheelhouse); I want this year to be different.

Ashley Wilhite of Mind Body Green described living with intention best: "I want to mindfully choose how I spend each day, how I exert my energy, what thoughts fill my mind, what food fills body, and what environment surrounds me. I want to choose my thoughts because I know they create my feelings. I want to choose the direction I'm headed and where I'll end up in the future."

That, right there, is what I want my 2018 to look like. I want to take better care of my body, with both what I eat and how I work out. I want to develop my relationship and spirituality with God. I want to create a path for my future, both in regards to my job and where I start building my life.

Here's to a great year of living with intention.

What are your plans for the year?
