Live Intentionally

I read a quote on Pinterest a few weeks ago that really resonated with me: "live less out of habit and more out of intent."

Those words made me pause and evaluate the level of intent that I live my life with.

Do I make my choices subconsciously and haphazardly or do I seek out opportunities to optimize the impact I have on my world and those around me?

I want want to live my life in such a way that the choices I make mean something more.

I want to think of others and be sensitive of the world around me.

I want the words that I say to be uplifting and glorifying to the Lord.

If I want all these things to be true, I have to do things differently.

I can’t continue to do life by my checklist, I need to seek opportunities to talk with people, serve and learn.

It is easy to fall into routine, and routine is not a bad thing, but you can lose so much in that.

Convenience is a roadblock to adventure.

If we only do life inside familiar parameters, we will never know what lies outside our comfort zones.

I am a firm believer that seeking discomfort produces the most exhilarating and worthwhile experiences.

The choices we make everyday have a ripple effect. What we do today can completely change our tomorrows.

This life is too short to be lived on autopilot.
