This weekend, I got to spend time with some great friends. The best part? They were unexpected events which made them even better. It cannot be a coincidence as I made a commitment to my accountability buddy that I would make connections with others and not be a social island where only I know what’s going on in my head and heart. It takes intention and goal setting to get to be the person that you wish to be. I also learned that intentions can also be affirmations that once put out there make things happen.
Don’t get me wrong. I am not suggesting magic or some Universe kind of stuff. Just that when we put out concrete intentions, stuff starts to happen. And I learn and relearn this lesson because I don’t remember that it’s so much easier to complain and not do anything about it. It’s nicer to just feel helpless rather than take responsibility. It sucks to be an adult sometimes because no more can I feel sorry for myself. No longer can I say life is unfair. No more can I be an island because guess what? Only I can choose to be an island. The excuses get to stop. I get to connect. I get to seek support. I get to love and be there for others.
So I continue with intentions to connect, to love, to be there for others, and best of all, let my loved ones know how I feel about them.
