Setting an Intention

I like to begin each day practicing yoga. Does that mean I actually do it? No, but when I do, my day has a flow to it. Part of my practice includes setting an intention.

I like to begin each day practicing yoga. Does that mean I do it? No, but when I do, my day has a flow to it. Part of my practice includes setting an intention. I often use peace, calmness, or serenity. It tends to be a bit cliche, but it works for me. Lately, my yoga practice has been a bit remiss. Everyone is at home, doing schoolwork, and going about their lives all around me affects that. Today, forgoing yoga yet again, I decided to set the intention for my day.

Tenacity 

te·nac·i·ty

noun

the quality or fact of being able to grip something firmly; grip.

the quality or fact of being very determined; determination.

the quality or fact of continuing to exist; persistence.

It is not an intention I usually set, but perhaps it should be. In some aspects of my life, I ooze tenacity. As a parent and a spouse, I am firm, reliable, and persevering. When it comes to my own goals, I am lacking.

I am trying to pursue audiobook narration. I have one book under my belt and know I will only get better. I’ve got the mastering and editing down, and continue to improve with training and classes. Now I need to prove myself. So I audition, again and again, hoping for at the very least, some feedback.

At the very least, I can learn that its okay to be tenacious for myself. What’s your intention?
