I posted this on my Facebook page earlier today 
and wanted to also share it with my blog friends. 

 I met a lovely woman almost 20 years ago, and although we haven't actually been in each other's company very often, when we do email each other it's usually because of serendipity: "I was JUST thinking of you!"

When we met, I didn't think we had anything in common, and yet we have that connection that I haven't had with many people in my life, and that's why it's so special.
We've emailed about getting together for lunch for about two years, and because of Covid and other responsibilities, it still hasn't happened.
In her latest reply, she wrote: "Let us please try to be intentional about getting together this spring/summer!"
When I first read it, that word "intentional" just sounded "nice." But after reading it a few more times, I looked up different meanings for it, and came across "intentional living," and websites and blogs all pertaining to living an intentional life. Although I'm happy 99% of the time, I'm also living by "habit", not by intention.
I'm so happy this happened to me today. Please send good vibes to me that I can begin this journey.


  1. Good luck. I am also guilty of living a lot by habit - though if I am being truthful lots of my living habits I would like to retain. Not all of them though...

    1. Hi Sue! Thanks for commenting, and I do understand living a lot by habit, in some situations. So far, I haven't even really THOUGHT about my living with intention! It's a difficult thing to begin, but I'm sure after I do, and get into the "habit" of living with intention, it will be wonderful! (did that make any sense??!!)

  2. No doubt you both will make it happen since you've both set the intention.

    1. Tammy, how great to hear from you! Thank you so much for stopping and commenting! Please stop by any time!

  3. BECKY-O!

    There's a LOT to be said for living intentionally... I'm sure. Although I myself have always lived it one six-pack at a time.

    Now that I'm retired from the work force, I probably SHOULD begin living more intentionally, so I don't just waste away every day doing a whole lotta nuttin'.

    That's it!! I'm going to begin living intentionally, starting tomorrow. Er... or, well, next week sometime, FOR SURE! I'm even going to start setting my alarm clock for 11:00 AM! Well, 11:30 at the VERY LATEST!

  4. You know I always love your comments, so please stop by often! Since I wrote this post, I must admit I've hardly even thought about living intentionally. It's a difficult thing to begin, but I really want to do it, so keep sending good vibes, karma, whatever toward me!


I'm still getting quite a few spam comments that are Anonymous, so I'm trying "User with Google Accounts." If anyone tries to comment that I know, and it won't let you, send me an email, okay? Thanks so much.
