Intentional Dancing


I could be like the feathery motes on a dandelion, easily blown away. People, who see a as free spirit, already think that’s who I am. I could be like that . . . if I wanted. But I don’t want to be.


It is not my intention to get carried away on the breeze. I shoot the breeze. I stand in the wind. I’m was never meant to let any hurricane or tornado lift and take me to anyplace where I don’t intend to go.

I intend positivity. Positive people make positive things happen. I want. I will. I want to have positive people in my life. I will have positive things happen. I intend. I mean. Intend to make my a positive life. Positive things make a life light free. I mean to fill my life with them. I see. I will. I see no reason that why I cannot be or do what I set out to be or do. I will be someone who changes the world one person at a time.

The word intention literally means stretching toward. The word aspiration means breathing toward.

I intend to aspire to bend my knee and fly higher. I intend to become more and then imagine even more.

The possibilities are as big as my heart, as unconditional as my love, as generous as the rain in a cloud burst. I see the winning in a baby’s smile a glimpse before he laughs. I know the warmth inside of an idea growing, the colors pouring, blending and mixing, the way people might.

It is intentional I will be every bit alive.
It is intentional I will be like music.
It is intentional I will be absolutely filled with wonderment.

For I aspire to breathe deeply and to stretch every fiber to lose every pain that I hide.

I will let go the anxious weight that invisibly grounds me. My feathery dandelion soul will intentionally dance through the air to the blue of the sky.

This is a wonderful reflection, Liz. I'm glad that I found it on Monday morning, when I'm focusing on the day, the week, ahead. To be intentional really is a decision, and influences not only oneself, but those around you.

Thanks for sharing your words & philosophy of life. I find encouragement and a little nudge here today.

Hi Dawn,
you are welcome! I read a piece by a man who wondered why it is that we question thing that are intentional and whether they should or could happen. It does mean logical that if we place our intent in the direction of our passion and follow that intention with action, we should realize our dream.
