I feel like I have changed pretty dramatically in the last couple years. I am not quite sure what the catalyst was? Maybe there were several? A new job, a new town, a new circle of friends, a new church?
I lived my 20s recklessly. I lived my days as if I was just passing time. I had fun. I enjoyed my circumstances, most of the time. I lived life. But I didn’t feel like I had any power. I waited for things to happen, for needs to be met, for relationships to blossom, for God to show up.
But somewhere along the way, that shifted.
Now, in my 30s, I find myself wanting to live intentionally. I want to wake up each morning more thankful for another day. I want to make the most of every opportunity, of every interaction, of every moment. I want to draft plans. I want to dream big. I want to conquer my fear. I want to be more focused on the process than the outcome. I want to love in a way that moves others. I want to be conscious that my actions measure up with how I want to be remembered. I want to live with intention. Is this living with intention important to you? If so, how do you stay focused on living intentionally?
