on Intentions

I’m a little tired this morning because I stayed up too late watching 9/11 footage. I couldn’t help myself; how could I watch a movie or read my book when that was on?  To that end, I heard audio I’d never heard before, saw footage I’d never viewed and remembered more than I wanted to.

Today, I’m taking a page from their book and am going forward with intention.

What do I mean, you ask?

It’s another blue-skied day here in West Michigan and I, for one, am gonna roll in it.

I’m going to put my face into the sunshine, do my work and be my quirky self as I do it.  I’m making it a point to smile at strangers, help my colleagues, exercise again and keep my distance from the naysayers.

Today, I’m going to do what they were all busy doing:  living.

Join me, will you?

  1. Sounds like a PERFECT way to spend a PERFECT day! Enjoy 🙂

  2. YAY! Good for you, MJ. I do believe I’ll do the same! It’s another gorgeous, blue-sky day in Virginia too!

    • It was a beautiful day! I worked on some projects, moved the ball forward, got a pedicure at lunch (a sparkly purple color – fun!) and enjoyed my homemade soup at my desk. A good day indeed 🙂 MJ

      • Don’t you just LOVE getting a pedicure! I had one last week, but no exotic polish color this time!

      • you know, I do .. I could do nothing but read People magazine and chat with the lil gal taking care of me … ah! MJ

    Count me in!

  4. You gave a good start to my day with this–thanks!

  5. Excellent advice, MJ.

    • Sometimes we just have to step back and think about what’s really important and not get caught up in all that other stuff. I’m just as culpable as anyone else 🙂 MJ

  6. I will join you! Yes.

  7. Well it was a rainy, rather gloomy day here … but for some reason I was in high spirits. So I joined you unintentionally! 🙂

  8. I’m enjoying perfect weather at the beach and just can’t let the horrors of that day ruin a much deserved vacation. You say it best. We gotta go on living and doing it well.

  9. Great attitude. And yes, life goes on!
