Hey friends. Something I have been thinking about lately is living life with intention. We hear it often, but what does it mean? I think we all have intentions with our life, but eventually we fall into routine. We eat the same sorts of foods, we go the same places, we see the same people, etc. Life becomes routine. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with routine. Routine is great, but sometimes in the midst of the routine we lose track of WHY we are doing it. When we lose track of the WHY it is easy to allow ourselves to be halfhearted in our efforts. So, I’ve been asking myself these sorts of questions lately:
Why do I go to church?
Why do I exercise?
Why am I a teacher?
Why do I (try to) eat healthy?
Those aren’t the only questions, but it is a good start. Then I try to answer them. The WHY is what motivates us. After a week off from work due to snow I lost motivation (and my normal routine). I realized that I needed to revisit my WHYs. Today I encourage you to take a step back and re-evaluate the WHYs so that you can remain motivated and do all things with your whole heart. If you find that your heart is not in it, maybe it’s time to reconsider if it something that should be in your life (or maybe you just need to rediscover your passion for it). Trust me when I say that remembering the WHYs is important!
