be intentional

There have been a recent string of deaths of people who in different ways touched my life.  Some weren’t people that I new well, but I interacted with each of them in different ways.

A couple of them have died so young.  It really made me think about how important it is to to make the best of my time here on earth.

Life is a tender delicate string of reality that we cling to.  

I heard someone say, “We make the most out of our time when we have the least to spare.”  That is true for me.  When I only have a few minutes before someone is coming over, it’s amazing how much I can quickly get done around the house.  I used to write daily for 15 minutes.  Sometimes I was able to get more done in those focused 15 minutes than the other times when I had an hour or two to spare.

For the past couple of years, I have picked a word for the year.  This year my word is intentional.  This word coincides with how I have been feeling lately.  I want to be more intentional with how I spend my time, with the food I put in my mouth, with keeping up in my relationships with others, and with what I spend my money on.

In life, I don’t want to live with regrets.  I want to Be Intentional.

This inspired me.  There has always a deep rhythm in my heart that whispers “write” over and over again keeping time with my faint pulse.  Sometimes it feels like I will fade away if I don’t write.  The blood coursing through my veins needs this creative power to flow.

Finally I have been consistent over the past few months and  I am doing my life purpose.

I write to feel and create.  I write to dive deeper into my soul and I write because if I don’t death will surely come.
