About Being Intentional

This season in my life I have been hearing and reading about being intentional more and more often, and it’s seeming to stick. Of course I am not (and never will be) a perfect individual, but I can strive to be intentional with my time in a more active and productive way.

I spend hours a week watching television (its my guilty pleasure) even if it is while I am folding laundry, cooking dinner, eating lunch, or doing other mindless chores around the house, I have been feeling conflicted lately, knowing there is a more productive way to engage my mind. This is not to say that I won’t keep a list of favorites tucked away each week, but I hope to be more intentional about which shows I choose, and how often I choose them.

This blog is an out pouring of two things: The fact that I have always wanted to start a blog and tossed around the idea here and there for the past few years. And a place to keep me accountable for my activities, spending, lifestyle, and more. A place to keep my intentions goal minded.

Now, all that said, what I find intentional, you may not. I don’t ever want this to be a place for comparison, judgement, or another way to make us feel inadequate. Social media and society in general do that well enough already. I want Intention & Grace to be a place for people to come to be lifted up or inspired. A place to have some fun, learn some new things and do life a little more closely with me.

So, I hope you will join me in being intentional in your own lives, relationships and with your time. It is a challenge I am taking on head first and would encourage you all to keep me accountable for.

Here are some of the fun things I will be sharing in upcoming posts. Enjoy!
