"The little dissatisfaction which every artist feels at the completion of a work forms the germ of a new work." ~Berthold Auerbach

In Week 36 I looked at how we go about allowing others to benefit from the teachable moments in his or her life. This week I am discussing next steps of the how-tos in living an intentional life. 

A year ago we started this journey together; an exploration of how to live life intentionally. Many of you shared with me how the process helped you sit quietly as you clarified and solidified your values and then moved on to crafting a Life List that exemplified those values. In an age where finding a moment of quiet time becomes increasingly difficult, you made the Morning 30 part of your life and worked to draft and find tune your Lifetime Priorities. You have worked the process.

If you had taken an intentional living class in school, right about now you'd be thinking about final exams and earning a certificate of completion. But this is life. There are no final exams even though sometimes it feels like we are continually preparing for a pop quiz. In life the only voice of authority that can validate our journey is our own. Yes, there are key people in our world who love and encourage us on our journey but ultimately the only person that can attest to the authenticity of your journey is you. 

So what are the next steps? Now is the time for you to own this process and continue to craft a life that allows you to thrive. While my Wednesday post will now include other topics besides the how-to of intentional living, I am sure that every once in a while I will have something to new add.

This is your life, your sure it reflects who you are.
