Man where has the year gone…it seems like this year has flown by. So much has happened and I am still processing it all everyday. But life is pretty dang good these days and I am just living one day at a time.
Now lets get to September, as I told you at the beginning of August, at the beginning of the year I titled my months because I wanted to live on purpose and be consistent in 2016. My word for the year is Consistent and the word for September is Intentional. When I started naming them I wasn’t strategic in naming them I just knew what words I wanted to live by during this year and implement into my life.
As I sat in my car trying to figure out what I wanted to be intentional about and how I was going to get it across to you all, my faithful few. I came up with nothing 😳. But as fate would have it I had to take my braids out that same night and instead of watching one of my favorite shows “Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives” as I always do on Friday nights, I decided to get on YouTube and try to get some direction and wisdom. I came across a video of Oprah Winfrey giving an empowerment talk at the 2016 Essence Festival. One of the main points that she drove home was that there came a time in her life that she decided to be intentional in every aspect of her life.
Now I was about to figure out what to change the word to if I couldn’t figure out how to explain and use this word for September and then it clicked while I was in the shower. I have to start being more intentional with myself, with my time, with my space, with God, with prayer, with my family, with my finances, with my business, with my love, and with my life completely. Although I have been accomplishing a lot of my goals this year, I’ve kind of just been flowing with the waves of life lately. So September is the month to be more intentional – with you and everything that you want around you.
Goals for September:
- Be intentional in scheduling my days.
- Be intentional with my Bible study time.
- Be intentional with branding and building Simply My Purpose.
- Be intentional in building different streams of income.
