Over the years I have continued to hold dear the scribbles and musings in many a hard cover notebook. My bookcase is filled with notebooks varying from training notes, business ideas, thoughts, ideas and inspiration and sometimes notes of happiness through to despair. Those notebooks filled with my words have been with me through my darkest moments and into the happiest days of my life. All of them precious.
Recently, I have gone back to my love of pen to paper. Each morning before I start my day I take a few moments to consider how I intend to spend my day. No, this is not a "To Do List" there are no numbers and no specific tasks in this particular book. I found a lovely sized notebook and each morning I write Today I intend at the top of the page. I then consider my day and how I intend my day to play out.
One of my favourite entries are
Today I intend to be kind
Today I intend to focus on the positives
Today I intend to be productive
Today I intend to get a good night's sleep
This one simple act has had a prolific difference to my days, my attitude and my mental well being.
What is your intention for your day?
