intentional

One of the hardest things for me is to be intentional. Not sure why that is, and I have lots of theories about it and I'm intentionally not going to expound on them.

My goal this year (not resolution) is to be more intentional about what I'm doing and not mindlessly go through the day, week, month, year - without accomplishing anything and enjoying my life.

I intend (hehehe pun "intended") to be intentional about what I eat and what I do and how much time I spend doing mindless things - like play games on the computer, or read and click and read and click and before I know it the night has passed and I have not accomplished anything that I intended to get done.

I intend to lose weight and get into my smaller clothes. I intend to exercises and tone up. I intend to spend intentional time reading my Bible and devotional books. I intend to complete my ND. I intend to stop wasting time and doing things that are of no eternal value. I intend to walk in love and not be offended. I intend to laugh and play and enjoy...

What do you intend to do this year? Do you intend to make changes?

I intend to keep my relationship with my Yorkie-lovin' bloggin' friend! Seriously, I intend to rein myself in a little in many areas of life. Like you, the click and read sucks up a lot of my time. I intend to try to work a little harder at publishing something. I intend to read the Bible more deliberately. And Dear, having a white kitchen does not make one a Proverbs 31 Woman, although I could hardly keep myself from printing out your comment and framing it. :)

Intentional living seems to be a common goal this year. There's a lot of talk (from myself included) of making overall general changes in attitudes, not just specifically pin-pointed changes in certain areas. Elisa @ Extravagant Grace is hosting a blog carnival about just that, called "8 in 2008." Every month on the 8th, we're all going to report our progress.
