Intention

Lately I have been trying to bring intention into my life.  It's easy for me to create a yoga practice and think about intention as I move from pose to pose.  If my intention is to be kind, I can see how forcing my hips to open beyond their means for the day is not practicing being kind.   I'd like to bring that kind of mindset off my mat.  I wake up each day, and scan my body (both physical and energetic) and see what I might need for the day.  If I need focus, I will intend to bring more focus into my day.  That might mean eating good brain food, that might mean calling a friend who provides clarity, or it might mean practicing a walking meditation.  Whatever it is, I try to remind myself as often as I can to find focus and question if my actions are creating more or less of it!
