This got me to thinking again about intentions. Almost a year ago I wrote this in my "other" blog (the one I had earmarked for arty things that sort of got taken over by gardening and food things):
Interesting to read this again and see that it is still something I am working on (or need to work on). I am good about setting intentions for my yoga practice but not much else in my life still. So that is going to be my focus again, setting an intention for things I do. Maybe I will get the really important things done that way?"I love the idea of setting intentions to do something. We do that in yoga class a lot. It would happen more if I actually went as much as I intended to go, but that goes in the reality part later. I had a lot of intentions for once I retired...and the reality of it so far is that a lot of them are happening at a very slow rate. I know, everyone tells me I have all the time in the world... but I don't really. I have this one moment. One moment then another moment. I have today. Then tomorrow I will have another today. THAT is where I am falling down... I have a lot of things planned for future days but am not doing them each today.If that doesn't make sense, don't worry... it is just lately forming in my own mind as well. This whole retirement thing is a little different that I had imagined too. That is ok, it is just not what I expected. Which is also ok... one of my intentions was to let go of some of my tight expectations.."
