My choice of living with intention as a theme for April blogging keeps evading me, mainly because living with intention this month has been a challenge!
My April days filled up quickly with furnace problems demanding service, finding creative ways to rid my home of skunk scent, a glitch in my back and an unexpected funeral. I discovered that intentional living doesn't necessarily mean I reach every goal right away. Living on purpose calls me back to focus in the in-between times of life surprises.
My writing course, the Conscious Booksmith came to an end and I barely touched my laptop or my journal all week! Intention demanded I break it out today, along with journals for research. I'd typed one sentence when a good friend phoned. I answered the call with delight for we hadn't talked in months.
You see, my over-riding intention is to live with joy. Joy trumps duty, guilt, slow-melting snowbanks, the temptation to complain (most days) and even writing occasionally.
