I’ve shared my Word of the Year for 2024 is Intentional. As is my practice, I also have a monthly theme built around this word. My theme for January is : Just Begin Every Day.
Just Begin Every Day
I’m on a journey to be more intentional and mindful in my daily life while allowing room for spontaneity. Leaving space for things to flow, I’m attempting to approach each day intentionally and mindfully.
I’ve discovered that sticking to a fixed schedule doesn’t work for me. The idea is to just begin every day with gratitude and look forward to what it might bring, but also have an over all intention for each ritual and things on my ‘to-do’ list. This provides the structure I need without becoming too rigid, allowing me to adapt to the demands of each day. This also prevents me from feeling guilty and making my morning/ evening rituals a drudgery.
This approach seems to be working so far. Last week, I was in Mumbai and my schedule was all over the place, yet, I was able to be mostly faithful to my rituals – Morning Pages, Scripture reflection, Journaling, Gratitude, etc.
Staying open to the what life brings while holding onto my intentional practices serves as a guiding light, contributing to a more enriching and fulfilling daily experience.
My Intentional Blogging Plan
I’ll be posting on Mondays and doing a monthly round up/ update.
Every week, I plan to join Marsha Ingrao at Always Write with her Wednesday Quotes feature (on Monday for me). Marsha has very kindly organized a weekly, broad list of topics. This will make it easier for me to have a more focused approach to my blogging.
This week, I’m posting for Wednesday Quotes #155: Organizing Goals And Resolutions For WQ 2024.
How’s 2024 treating you so far?
