Lost Intentions

As part of my morning meditation, at the end, I will usually set an intention for the day; I’ll think about a specific quality or value that I want to pay special attention to as I go about my day. I will then wish that intention on my family, then to my friends, to those I encounter that day, and finally to people in my community who I don’t meet and people throughout the world.

While this all may sound well and good and cheesy, I have a tendency to forget all about it as soon as I actually get my day started. I get caught up in all the things I need to do that day and all the procrastinating I need to do that the intention ends up like Woody here, and ultimately falls flat on the floor.

But there is way forward, as there always is. I just haven’t quite figured it out yet.
