Monday Inspiration: Life Requires Intentionality

I'm wondering if anyone out there has ever woken up one day and wondered how you got where you are. It wasn't the plan you had. It wasn't where you intended to be at 30, 40 or even 60. But life happened, and this is where you are.

Where you are is not necessarily a bad thing. It's just not where you thought you'd be. The good news is that it's never too late to adjust your course and work toward the life you want. As writer C. S. Lewis once said, "You are never too old to set another goal or dream a new dream."

The key to accomplishing this is being intentional about where we want to go. When we have a plan on how to get there, we make things happen to get us there rather than allowing life to take us wherever.

So what's really important to you? Be intentional about building your life around the answer.
