I have been thinking about intention.
How and when did I make what I wanted a priority?
In the past, I felt like I just floated from thing to thing.
When I went to college I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do, so I went with what someone suggested. Then when I was unhappy with that choice, I went with someone else’s suggestion.
When I got out of college it took me awhile to find that first job in my major. I had survival to take care of first. Once the basics were in place, I could make the career happen.
I was lucky. I found my way to a successful career freelancing in film production. I was enjoying the journey without a clue as to where it would lead. It led me to LA to work on a hot new series. It was very exciting at the time. I was in film mecca. I started to think about my next goal and the steps needed to get there.
That was when things started to change for me. I needed to decide if I want to live the life I was creating?
I started to ask myself new questions. I began to think about how I wanted to live, where I wanted to live and who I wanted in my life.
I was going beyond just a yearly goal. I was thinking about my whole life and how I wanted each day to look.
This started me on a few different paths. It was a new way of thinking for me. I needed to figure out the thing that would give me the life I wanted.
I was mostly enjoying trying new things. When my relationship broke up my world changed again. At first, I was in survival mode. So I got back into film production. I went back to something I knew.
I took care of the basics. Then it was back to the questions:
How did I want to live?
Where did I want to live?
Who did I want in my life?
I knew I needed a goal or an intention of what I wanted my life to be. It was stressful. How I would know when it was the right thing?
I researched, looked within myself, did a ton of journaling about everything I could think of. And found a coach.
I finally found it.
I know what is important to me.
I know how I want my life to look.
I know who I want in my life.
This gave me freedom. It gave me direction and a path to get to who I want to be. I check in to make sure I stay on the path I created. I check in to make sure I like the path I am on. I check in to make sure I am living the way I want to live.
I look at the things I am accomplishing. I can see how I am progressing. As a small business owner there are days I feel I am failing. On those days, I stop, look at the intention I have created for my life. Then I look at the list of the things I have accomplished. I helps me move forward on my path.
Nothing happens overnight. The journey is where we live.
Enjoying the journey is one of my life’s intentions. Having my back has made a huge difference in how I feel along this journey.
We get to decide how we want to feel about ourself every day.
