Our family was! We were drowning, trying to survive days filled with responsibilities to work, school, activities, and various other commitments. Keeping up with everything was taxing and anytime we had together was rushed or spoiled. Something needed to change! Many people we know are experiencing the same, perhaps you are too. Easier said than done, right? That’s where I think our experience can help you.
I started to look at the things that were not working. Days were packed, leaving little to no time to breathe. We needed more quality time as a family. The stress of too many responsibilities was affecting our behavior, which in turn negatively impacted how we treated each other and our relationships. Teaching our kids valuable lessons to enrich their lives and prepare them for life had taken a back seat to less important things. Our dreams were buried under a mountain of mundane and trivial issues. We needed to take control of our lives and begin to create an intentional life for ourselves. Thus the “My Intentional Life Journey” program was born.
What’s not working for you and your family? Many of us will have similar issues. Regardless of what they are, I believe that the process our family used to create an intentional life will help the majority solve their own issues. That’s why I am happy to share our program. 🙂
The processes in the program were designed to:
- Open you up to your current reality and take ownership for it
- Let you decide and commit to where you want to go, what you want in life, and who you want to be
- Organize and facilitate communication within and as a family
- Affirm your beliefs and visualize your future
- Devote and prioritize your time and energy for the things that matter most
- Create positive thinking habits
- Identify and share lessons that support your values
- Focus on relationships
- Give freely of yourself for the benefit of others
- Embrace the day!
- Everything the program was designed to do as listed above, plus . . .
- Quality time
- Self awareness and patience
- More focus
- An ability to keep an open mind and look for the good in others
- Movement towards being present in the moment
- Appreciation for the small things
- An ability to face and conquer our fears
- Comfort in letting life unfold as it will – what will be, will be
- A healthy concern for the opinions of others, open to hear them, but they do not drive us
- Sensitivity to the needs and perspectives of others
- Enjoyment for life
