I’m listening to guided meditations every day this week (and for the next three), and this morning was about setting intention for the day.
I am a planner, and accustomed to making plans, even long-term ones (although PTSD has made long-term planning hard for me the last few years). I am also a goal-achiever, so setting goals is also really familiar.
This, however, is different, and much more gentle and kind.
Were I planning and setting goals, I’d have a schedule mapped out and clear, defined goals to achieve this week. Instead, I am setting the intention to be curious and stay with creative energy, whatever that looks like.
