I’ve really missed being here! I hope this finds you and yours well! This past summer I set an intention to spend quality time with my kids and I did just that. We had a wonderful summer together! My kids for the most part got along. We didn’t go on any extravagant vacations, we simply enjoyed each others presence, visiting local attractions, enjoying trips to Jeni’s for delicious ice cream, and hiking through our local parks.
Intention according to the dictionary is: An aim that guides action. At the beginning of many of the yoga classes I teach and attend, the teacher offers a moment to students to set an intention for their practice. Often this intention comes from asking oneself, “why did I come to yoga today?”. This intention creates an “aim” or focus for one’s practice, and, maybe even one’s life off the mat.
I have found the act of setting daily intentions allows me to maintain my focus and move through my day with purpose and connection to my family and students. By no means does this mean that I live a “perfect” life without regrets. Living with intention provides me a “road map” so, when I take a wrong turn I can find my way back.
As we head into the Holiday Season it is my intention to stay present and to enjoy time with my family.
