I lead a pretty wonderful life. I accept responsibility for creating what delights me.
This month I agreed to play in a blog challenge where I committed to blogging 20 times during the month. I can do that. I like blogging, and I have lots to talk about and things I want to share. Plus I thought it would be fun to do an abecedarium of things I treasure.
And yet here I am ten days into the month and I’ve blogged five times with only three entries in my abecedarium. Clearly it’s time for reassessment.
Today (well technically yesterday given Australia’s time zone difference) Kat McNally began her August Moon challenge where she offers a daily prompt which folks can use for reflective writing.
The first prompt is “set an intention.”
We’re starting at the full moon (a super moon no less, meaning the moon in its elliptical orbit will be at or near perigee, the closest approach to Earth so it appears bigger than usual). The August full moon is known by many names but the one I’m liking and using is Fruit Moon. It feels like the perfect time and place to set an intention.
My intention is to follow my inspiration. The direction my heart is pointing me. To follow these little joy crumbs on my path and not be pulled off course by habit, or pattern, or confusion. And that means keeping in the now moment as much as possible. Willing to listen to the nuances of the moment and ready to shift. And so I intend to live from that YES place of me. And how amazing will that be? It’s time. It’s what we all came for.
What about you? Have an intention you want to declare? Do tell – you know I love to hear.
