living with intention – pause & reflect

© Tina Vega Photography

It’s hard to believe three months have passed since the start of this Living with Intention series!  I thought it would be a good time to pause and reflect (taking a look at what is working and what is not) and make adjustments as necessary.

What has your pace been like in recent weeks?

How is your body feeling?

How is your head feeling?

How have you been managing those feelings?

What could you do differently in the coming weeks to take better care of yourself inside and out?

What have you struggled with the most in the last few months?

What have you learned about yourself through the weekly lessons?

If you are struggling to stay on top of time (i.e. your calendar/schedule is calling the shots instead of you), what changes could you make in the coming weeks?  [Revisiting THIS blog post might lead to fresh insight.]

If you were given only one week to live, how would that perspective influence the way you are living today?

As I mentioned at the beginning, living with intention is a lifelong process of growth without end.  Staying on track requires our full attention.  If we lose focus and let distractions get in the way, we will likely find ourselves caught back up in the swirl of “BUSY-ness” veering headfirst into the ditch.

I don’t know about you but I have spent far too much time in the ditch.  Years even.  I would much rather embrace this life and make what impact I can in the time that remains.  Loving big, living fully in the moment, not allowing my fears and insecurities call the shots, seeing adventure in everyday challenges, and doing what I can to positively affect others’ lives.  Taking time to regularly pause and reflect is almost like pressing the “reset” button.  It’s an opportunity for a fresh start.
