The Life Intentional

I have always liked the idea of having a blog. I have inconsistently kept up a xanga site for a few years, but I would like to do something more. My previous attempts at blogging have all been rather scattered and sporadic. It acted more as an online journal than anything. I would like to be able to use this blog to discuss what I have been thinking about in my life, but maybe in a more organized manner.

I've been thinking that it would be nice to have a blog to write about the many things I have been learning lately. I thought it would be nice to have some kind of a theme (one way to be more organized), but the problem is that my thoughts all seem so different.

A few weeks ago (or was it months) in the Gathering (our school's student chapel), one of my friends spoke on the Intentional Life. She was talking about how important it is to be active in life, not just skating on by. That phrase, intentional living, perfectly describes what I want.

I want to live actively engaged in the (pardon the cliche) beauty and pain of this life. I want to learn more about this wonderful, complex world. I want to know God better and learn how to live my faith. I want to live with my eyes wide open.

I want to live a life intentional.


I like comments just as much as fresh guacamole and chips! Well, maybe not quite that much...
