Our Intention is in Our Name

During a recent meditation focusing on "Intention," I began to think about what I wanted for our family in 2014.  The following intention came to my mind and wrote it down as soon as I got home.   I've read a lot over the past few days about what others want for themselves and I thought I would share this.  It now hangs on the refrigerator door where our family sees it (or ignores it) every day.

THINK - What to say; what to do.

EXPRESS - Say what you need/want and use kind words.

SAFE - Our home is a safe place.  Feel free to be yourself.

SMILE - You will feel better; You will make others feel better.

EXCEL - Do your best; Be your best self; Learn new ways to achieve.

LOVE - Walk and talk with love; Feel loved because you are and give love.

This is our life to live and the words came from our name.  This is our intention for 2014.

Happy New Year!


  1. I cannot think of a better way for living intentionally. I am going to talk to my family about this at dinner and see if we can come up with a manifesto.

    1. Thanks Kevin. Looking forward to hearing what you all come up with for your family.
