    Haha! Before I made it to the “When to set an intention” section, I was thinking of driving. For years now, before I get behind the wheel, I remind myself that I will come across other drivers doing stupid things. I also remind myself that my primary goal of driving is to get to a particular place in one piece. And because I drive “intentionally,” I never succumb to road rage. I know other drivers aren’t out to get me. If they fail to signal or cut me off, I chalk it off to them being absentminded or careless. Intentional driving definitely makes life a lot less stressful. Heck, I can’t remember the last time I used my horn. Thanks for this great post, Miss B. Awesome advice.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one. I must admit I have to remind myself almost every day of my intention, but it certainly helps me arrive a lot less frazzled.
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    So setting an intention is like labelling what your purpose is for whatever you’re doing… the outcome you’re working towards?

    • Miss Balance says:

      Yes in a way, I see it as deciding what the outcome will be before you set out on your way so that your subconscious mind is working towards getting you where you want to be. Going back to my example about driving, if I have already decided I will be calm and considerate, then it is much easier to do when someone crosses my path that would otherwise make me angry.

    My brain is also always full and thinking 5 steps ahead. If I don’t deliberately set aside time to focus on setting an intention, it doesn’t happen, for all that it only need take a couple of minutes to do.

    And to Mr. Groovy – I really congratulate you, and wish more people would set out like that!

    I absolutely agree with ‘setting intentions’. The subconscious mind is a wonderful thing. Once you really set your mind to something, all sorts of things happen ‘by chance’. The reality is because you are focusing on your ‘intentions’, your antennae are working overtime, and pick up on things you would otherwise have missed
