Getting in the habit of setting good intentions
Setting intentions can move our lives in a more positive direction. It gets us moving forward, purposefully. We are more conscious about the kind of day we are going to have, what we want to accomplish the next year, five years out etc. I find that when I set a positive intention, say for my day, I am more positive and complain less- and guess what, I tend to have a happier day. I think others around me pick up that positive energy as well and they seem to be more cheerful and friendly.
How do we set an intention? We could certainly write one in our journals, mention it in our prayers or meditation, or share it with someone in our life. I find I do very well when I share an intention with someone close to me. There is kind of an accountability factor in sharing intentions with another person.
So give it a try! What is one good intention that you can set for the day?
I, Debra, am setting an intention for this day, Wednesday April 28, 2010 to be present with every person I encounter today.
Have a wonderful day!
