Intentions give your mind a story to live into.Janet Baird’s “Give Your Life Meaning: Set Intentions” on https://www.onwardthebook.com/give-your-life-meaning-set-intentions/
Based on a quote from Elena Aguilar, Tina’s podcast about intentions
played from my phone this morning and offered to give
me a little pep-talk before my feet – your
feet – even hit the floor. My mind
was awake, but it would be hours before a
cloud would ascend from this first day of spring break mind–
set that says this week must be productive, a
week of getting things done, but the story
gets lost in the need to
check boxes, to live
a day – a week – ahead, so instead of forging forward, the story, I sink into.
Today’s slice is inspired by, not only the podcast and article above, which helped me to conjure what to write about, but also by Cindy’s “Silence is Golden” which was, in turn, inspired by edifiedlistener’s post and Fran Haley’s golden baton. They gave me the mentor from which I could write like, in the effort to stretch my writing self and craft something beautiful.
