Intentional Living

Day 71 Project 365

Live today differently.  Look for all the positives you can find in today.  Speak to someone you normally would pass by.  Smile all day long no matter your circumstances.  Do something today that you put off for “tomorrow”.  Pay it forward in the line at your favorite coffee shop and buy the coffee for the person in line behind you.  Give flowers to someone you know or maybe even someone you don’t know as God lays them on your heart.

Be intentional today about making a difference in someone’s life.  Be intentional about cherishing the moments in your day.  Do something different today and see the blessings blossom.  Find a scripture for the day.  Write it out on paper and maybe even illustrate it.  Put it in a beautiful frame and mark the day you started to live life with great intention.

Be intentional today about making a difference in YOUR own life.  Let go of things you have dragged around with you.  Make amends where needed then lay that stuff down.  Living intentionally to never go back to those old things and do something new.  Purpose to only speak positive today.  Find a word of the day to live by and use it as much as possible.  Be so intentional today people stop and take a second glance.  Make them ask whats different about you today!

Start a journal.  Be brave.  Put your thoughts to paper and fill those pages with truths.  Don’t own a bible? Its ok.  On my page you will find a link to Biblegateway.  What do you have to lose?  Let it be the thing you do different today.

Let today be the first day of the rest of your amazing life.  A life of purpose and passion!

It is going to be an awesome day.

  1. :). Funny, I just shared the shame thoughts with my beautiful sister. She recently has lost everything, from her husband to liver failure, her home and the two young adult children 18 and 20 year old’s, that were living with her and her husband until they lost their home. She is basically homeless living from place to place. She has question God, but still has her faith. She spent the night with us last night and we really enjoyed our time. She left this morning with my grand daughter for church, and I reminded her, that it was time for her to take back her life. To stop the canker worm from destroying what she has left! She agree and said “This is the day the Lord has made,” I will rejoice and be Glad in it! She is walking in Peace, She has a plan, a plan to follow through with something she has needed for many ,many years. I place of healing and recovery, true recovery, a place of surrender. You see, she has been caring for terminally ill family since 1997, and now is such a time is this!
    Leslie, your writing is so beautifully written, thank you for sharing your heart. You are a amazing women.

    • Thank you Kat. I love you my sister. Thank you for never giving up on me, for holding my head and hand and crying when I cry and screaming when I scream and laughing when I laugh. I appreciate you more than words can express. and YOU too are an amazing woman. Keep following after the things God has impressed upon your heart and never take your eyes of the prize.
