Living Intentionally


Have you ever considered your body, mind, and spirit as a corporation? A corporation with its own set of goals, mission statement, standards, as well as finesse. Think about it. We all have unique styles that separate us from others, just as any other entity.

We have our own code of conduct regarding how we live, the vast differences in our lifestyles, and how we run our day-to-day operations. In addition, how we target a specific group of people we choose to associate with.

So, in analyzing this theoretically, why don’t we (like businesses and corporations) choose to make decisions that are best for us versus allowing others to make the crucial decisions on our behalf in finances, relationships, jobs, family, etc.? As the CEO and author of our own lives, shouldn’t we be the ones making the critical life choices while seeking guidance, as needed, toward major life-changing events? Would you expect Mercedes Benz to allow Toyota to make their decisions in their next model or any changes to their corporation?

I think not. So then, why are we allowing others to make the decisions that can have a lasting impact on us, how we function, and ultimately, how we live?

Are we not the temple of our own body, the CEO of our mind, the author of our story, and the guiding light of our spirit? If not, we should be! 

Start now by adjusting how you take care of yourself. Ask yourself:

Do you exercise regularly, sleep well, eat healthily, socialize and affiliate with positive individuals, make the best decisions, and follow your passion versus someone else’s?

It's important to celebrate both big and small successes in your life, treat yourself regularly, maintain a positive attitude, etc. When describing your next steps, if you find your responses to answers questionable and your clarity debatable, lean into the process. Assess the situation and identify where you need more focus, clarity, and understanding. 

As the CEO and author of your life, identify what new version of you is required and what bold moves you need to make to live intentionally and achieve the goals and lifestyle you set for yourself.

  • How would you characterize the person you need to become?
  • How would you need to be accountable to yourself?
  • How would you live intentionally? 

The time to act is now! Give yourself grace as you unravel what is out of alignment with what you want, make decisions intentionally, and embrace your unknown potential.
