What is an Intention?

What is an intention? Is it something you intend to do? You hear this buzz word a lot, but do people actually understand it? I've been trying to set daily, weekly, and yearly intentions. I find that when I look at my intention regularly it reminds me of my purpose.  It keeps me on track.  It keeps me focused. Sometimes it can be as simple as one word. I've seen Fierce, Gratitude, Be Present as some examples of single word intentions. They all resonate with me.

Can you start your day with an intention? Can you start your week with an intention? How about a few simple intentions for the year? Write them down and put them in a place where you will see them every, single day. Repeat the word or idea in your head throughout the day. Come back to it. If you fall off track, don't beat yourself up. This is most important. Our minds naturally wander. It is okay if you do not fulfill your intention. It is just that - an intention. But when you do set intentions, they can be a very powerful tool to keep you on track and help you to follow a path that you were meant to go down.
