Lately I've been really intrigued by humans in general and why we do the things we do. Obviously I can only speak for myself and my own abnormalities. It's amazing what we're all capable of but I think we let so many things like social media, society standards, intentions, beliefs, and other people's views determine what we end up doing with our lives. I know I spend so many time with these intentions. I intend to get really busy with work, I intend to meet up with my girlfriends, I intend to clean my apartment, I intend to write a blog post. However, many times these things don't get done and when they do it's not as good as it could be.
I think intentions are the root of [almost] all evil in some regard. Honestly if we feel like doing something then we should just do it. I don't need to have a to do list (unless I'm trying to not forget something important) because if there's something I need or want to do then I should just do that. Whatever I'm feeling should dictate my next move.
Obviously we can't just always do what we want 100% of the time. If we're working with someone or have a set plan then it's important to be responsible for those things. What I'm talking about is when we make these "To Do" plans in our mind of things we might want to accomplish soon. It seems like these things so often turn into burdens or something we're constantly thinking about but not ever doing.
I kinda feel like if it's not something you can just go ahead and do then it really must not be that important. This goes for dreams, career moves, daily tasks, etc.... & I think for many of us this is a harsh reality to face. If it's not important then why do we spend our time thinking about it? Intentions don't get you anywhere. Actions mean everything. I can have the intention of having a great website but if I never actually do anything with it then that means nothing.
So maybe March is the month to give up intentions and go with our actions. If it's important and we're thinking about it then let's get around to doing it. No more "To Do" lists.
