Setting our intention is a powerful tool. Setting our intention to be fully present throughout your day can change the way we experience life. Many people begin their journey in the practice of mindfulness with the intention of lowering their stress or increasing their level of wellness. Goals and intentions are very important as they motivate us to move forward, evolve, and grow. However, the practice of mindfulness is not about going anywhere or obtaining a result. Intention within the practice of mindfulness is about making the choice to be present and experience all that is happening. Leaning in and accepting the moment and experience is what being fully alive is all about. Intention does not come with strings attached or an expected outcome. It is an internal mechanism that allows us to settle into THIS moment. Letting go of expectations and trying to get somewhere is true freedom. This moment is all we have, be intentional and aware of the experience.
