What are your intentions?

To understand what your intentions are, you must ask yourself some difficult questions. Why am I doing what I'm doing? What is my purpose? Why do I want this? What is important to me? Seneca once said, "Putting things off is the biggest waste of life: it snatches away each day as it comes and denies us the present by promising the future."

When we fail to set our intentions and know our purpose, procrastination and excuses set in until days turn into weeks, weeks turn into months, and months turn into years, often without us realizing. We think there is always tomorrow until tomorrow comes, and we find ourselves questioning where the time went. The consequence of not paying attention to our intentions is a life filled with loss and regret. Loss of meaningful relationships, regret that we didn't take care of our health, and a cluttered, messy life that becomes difficult to manage because of neglect. When we become aware of what we have lost, sadness and loneliness can set in, taking even more from us.

So, how can we create purpose and intention in our lives? I asked our Bridging the Gap members how we can be intentional with what we do and slow down time. Here are some answers: enjoy what you're doing, do what you like, take opportunities, be present, spend time with those you care about, be consistent in doing what matters to you, and if something isn't to your liking, you can change it.

It's December already, and soon, we'll be turning over a new calendar year. Can you believe how quickly 2023 has gone? This is a perfect time to ask yourself what your intentions are for 2024, what will you say?

Living outside of excess
