It Is Time To Set Your Intention

It is Time To Set Your Intention

There are many words which are used to describe “Intention” such as objective, plan, motive and design. Any of these can be applied to the practice of setting and living from your intention. If there is no intention then there is a lack of direction. You are subject to being pushed one way or the other reacting to events rather than experiencing them in the context of your intention.

My intention is to energize and engage in the conversation with individuals in mid-life about what is meaningful and to inspire and support soul nourishing action.

What is your intention for your life?

Meaning and purpose are developed through experience and change over time. However, it seems, rarely do we take the time to examine the important question of what is meaningful to us today and how will that be expressed in our lives.

The meaning and purpose in my life come from being of service. This is a variety of activities as simple as taking the dog for a walk, to cleaning the house or convening a group of mid-lifers in a mastermind group to talk about what matters and support each other in our designs of life.

What is meaningful and purposeful in your life?

I'd love to hear from you as to your meaning and purpose. Just click here to send me an email.

If you have not taken the time to set an intention for your life now is a good time to do it. July 26th is New Year's Day in the Mayan calendar. The New Year is always a good time to take  time for examination, reflection, setting intention and getting clear on your meaning and purpose.

Until we talk again...


I am Ready to Be Changed 

"I realize that erroneous self-defeating thinking is the cause of my unhappiness. I am ready to accept my personal power and connection to my essential self so that my life can be transformed"

Self Compassion

I notice people speak to themselves in a mean way. I certainly am guilty of the same thing when I think I have done something wrong.

The gremlin that lives in us waits to take us down with language not befitting who we are.

You know how it sounds, “How stupid could you be to do that. You should have known better. That was a thoughtless thing you did. You never get it right.” And on the self talk goes taking you down a path of self flagellation. 

Let’s look at self compassion and how it might change the way you speak to yourself.

Self compassion is treating yourself with gentleness, love and understanding, much the same as you would toa child or a sick friend.

When faced with a challenging situation the first thing to do is stop. Stop doing whatever you are doing and sit down (unless you are driving). 

When you stop, take a few breaths and feel yourself settling into wherever you are.

Then start to speak to yourself in a much kinder way. Use statements such as:

May I be kind to myself in this moment

May I give myself compassion in this difficult situation

Take a moment to notice how your body feels. Notice if it is more quiet than when you started.

Before you go off into more activity just wrap your arms around you and squeeze yourself with love.

I guarantee you will quiet the voice of the gremlin and you will feel better.
