Creating Mindful Intentions
All you ever longed for is
before you in this moment
if you dare draw in a
breath and whisper, ‘yes.’
Deciding to live mindfully and intentionally takes willingness to sit with the grief of a life unlived, courage to dream big, and sustained effort to see our intentions through. The result of that effort is a life that feels more congruent with who we are and what we value, which makes for a more meaningful life and a greater sense of peace and happiness.
In this season of newness and returning light, may we all take time to contemplate what matters most and what our hearts long for, and may we create clear and mindful intentions for the coming year.
Warm wishes for peace and wellbeing,
