Intentions > Goals

"Setting intention, at least according to Buddhist teachings, is quite different than goal making. It is not oriented toward a future outcome. Instead, it is a path or practice that is focused on how you are "being" in the present moment. Your attention is on the ever-present "now" in the constantly changing flow of life. You set [...]

I’m Employed!!! (And Other Things)

Hi there. It's been a week so I thought I'd pop in for some thinking out loud. I'm going to skip this week's Word of the Week, because honestly, I just wanna spill. It's been a week since I've written (even in my journal), so this is much needed for my sanity. NOTE: this is [...]
