Our Choices Matter: 31 Days of Intentional Living

From the moment the alarm rouses me from sleep in the morning until my head hits the pillow again at night I am making choices.

From what I'm going to wear to what I'm going to eat to how I will spend my time today, decisions are a necessary part of life and we cannot escape making them.

Some choices we consciously make.

Some are made by our inactions.

We can either coast through each day preoccupied and hurriedly bouncing from one thing to the next,

or we can be intentional about how we live.

In this 31 day series, I will be exploring what it might look like to live with intention — firmly directed and with purpose.

You see, it isn't necessarily about what we are deciding (although that certainly can be part of it), but that we have done it with awareness.

How often do you stop and smell the roses?

Felt the sand between your toes?

When was the last time you did something to love yourself?

Sought beauty in simple things?

Join me as we seek, find, protect, set, capture, and encourage our way through intentional living.


This is the first post in a series, called 31 days of Intentional Living. You can find all the posts in this series here, updated each day in October. Category: Inspirational & Faith

I've always been drawn to being more intentional with my time, thoughts, resources, etc.
Can't wait to continue along with you.

This is something I think about so much. Having children has made me far more aware of how I spend (or waste) my time (or wish for more) and I'm constantly trying to find ways to be intentional. During this season of my life, I'm most working on being intentional about finding MARGIN. Not easy, but I'm learning! This should be a great series!

Thank you so much for your encouragement, Ladies!

Adriel: If by margin you mean boundaries then I am totally there, too. :)
