I could have used "Affirmations" as my title, but I'm tired of that overused word. So I'll invent "Intentionalisms."
Lately in church, I've been hearing a lot about becoming more "intentional" in our giving, in our volunteering, in our awareness of the work our sister churches are doing in the community, etc. I think that I need to be more "intentional" in my diet and health habits.
Meaning, this has got to be a priority. I can't wait until I have the time and inclination, I have to make the time and inclination. Whether or not I feel like it.
There are 6 basic things I should do on a daily basis:
Simple. I should make a chart, and mark them off each day. Obviously, I can't spend an hour every day doing every one of those things, because there's other stuff that has to get done. Maybe I should just set a minimum of 15 minutes, knowing that it's the Getting Started that's the hardest part. And make "every day" into 5 days each week, knowing that there are days when I'm away from home, garden, and piano, and that can't be avoided.
Bonus: Gardening is exercise! Two birds and all that.
