Let's celebrate Get Organized (GO) Month by ridding ourselves of mental clutter from A to Z!
To celebrate Get Organized (GO) Month I'm doing a series of posts on the mental clutter that can be just as pervasive as physical clutter. For each letter, I'll talk about a mental stumbling block that often impacts our well-being.
Let's focus on I ... Intentions
Let me first start by saying that it's important to have intentions. Living intentionally gives you clarity, helps guide your decisions, and aligns you with your goals and purpose. But sometimes we need to take a hard look at our intentions and give them a reset. So often people set intentions (ie; this will be the year I'll get organized), but they only see one way to get there. Sometimes by letting go of how and when you get there, you will find a way.
The act of letting go will often allow for things to come together more quickly than if we were to hold tightly to the ideas within our head, and the feelings that come from this act of holding on. When we refuse to let go of an ill-aligned intention we are zeroed in on feelings of lack as we don't have what we desire and feel we may never achieve it.
Ways to combat this thinking include:
Embrace what happens as part of the journey of achieving your intention as by accepting and learning from your current circumstances you will eventually achieve what it is you're after
Envision your intention being sent out into the universe and released to the land of possibility
Say aloud "I let go and surrender" as you are okay, you are worthy, and there is no need to fight for it anymore; surrendering equals freedom
Remain flexible on your short-term outcomes while remaining steadfastly committed to your long-term outcomes
Remember there will be multiple outcomes that will be OK, if not great too
"One of the most courageous decisions you'll ever make is to finally let go of what is hurting your heart and soul."
Here's to freeing ourselves from the mental clutter of our intentions!
Please share with someone who needs a clearer mindset.
