Intentions

I did not intend on writing a blog tonight but this has been weighing heavy on my mind and I thought I should just spit it out there in the Universe. Lately I have been thinking very hard about intentions. Hmmm,
Intention-
               1. the act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result
               2. the end or object intended; purpose.

I know what I want and I know what my intentions are and I am wondering if I am taking the proper steps to get there. Is there really any right way? How do you know you are on the right path? Am I dreaming too big? Am I not dreaming big enough? Am I just plain ole' putting too much pressure on myself? I do know that I have a tendency to be a "results now" type person. I need gratification now! I need to know it's paying off now! Maybe this is just a lesson from the Universe to learn patience. Maybe I need to let it flow more and stop trying to control everything and it's outcome! Maybe my dreams are smaller than what the Universe has in store for me and I should just keep working full steam ahead and enjoy the ride!
Does anybody else out there have these insane conversations in their head???!!!
Until next time-

I feel this way a lot. But my intent is to just make art. I have no idea who will buy it if anyone, but its something I have to do. And I guess i feel wherever the art takes me is where im supposed to be....and that cant be a bad thing. So i say just go with the flow!!

You wouldn't even want to hear the crazy conversations I have in my head. Yours are tame by comparison. And if your dreams don't scare you, they aren't big enough.

I feel this way a lot, but in the past year I've come to realize that there are no right or wrong ways. As a matter of fact, I've been following the "rules" my whole life, and it hasn't gotten me to where I want to be. So, I'm no longer listening to others or following so-called rules. Now I'm listening to that small voice inside of me and I'm not ever going to feel bad for trying and failing. Your life is simply your personal journey, so make it what you want;D (Brave Girls really helped me this year;)

I think most people ask all these kinds of questions. I like Linda's last sentence too. My way is to just keep "showing up" and doing the work. And then looking up from that periodically to check how that is fitting in with my intentions.

Perpetually. Stop doing things because you are worried you need to, do them just for the sake of wanting to. The moment you quit is the moment you have failed. Turn off the brain and turn on the heart.

Yep been there many times... sometimes we just have to run and take that leap of faith.
