Do you have an intention for the day ahead?
Living “intentionally” starts with setting a goal for yourself in the morning. When you first wake up, think about what you want the day to be like. What are your plans? What do you want to accomplish? A busy day at work or at home requires that you focus on what’s important beyond the small “stuff.”
When I wrote my book Anxious Mom, Anxious Child: A Mother’s Journey from Anxiety to Serenity, I had a clear intention to not only share my story, but most importantly, offer tools and advice that help other women, especially mothers, who might be struggling with stress and anxiety.
This week, one of my favorite podcasts, Mamas con Ganas featured my conversation with host Valentina Izarra about the topic of mindful parenting and the importance of staying in the present moment with your loved ones. Follow the link on Mamas con Ganas page for additional information (Facebook hides the posts with external links) to listen to our conversation and let me know your thoughts. 🙂
Our conversation turned very real when Valentina’s young son “entered” the interview unexpectedly. I won’t spoil it for you, but, I have to say, it was endearing and it highlighted exactly what we were talking about on that very moment. Valentina and I share a few things in common; we are both mothers, we have been divorced and have found love again since, and we are both Latinas, and we are passionate about self-improvement and mindfulness, all of which made this conversation all the more special.
As you go about your day, ask yourself: What is my intention? What is the larger objective on your day or on tour week ahead, or for the coming months? And if you feel like you are ready to work on a plan to get you there, schedule a free exploring call. Remember, creating the life you want starts with the intention to do more, be more but most importantly, attract more of what you love in your life, one intention at a time.
