Follow your heart | Live with intention

Follow your heart, do what feels right not what others tell you is right! Currently this is my mindset, I am doing things that feel right to me, we all have gut instincts so follow that because it is usually right. Live with intention. 

Whatever happens, it was my choice in the end. Everything will work out for the better, remember that. Better to live with ‘oh well’ than ‘what if’.

live with intention

Feel deeply.

Give yourself the chance to experience everything fully, all the feelings. Let those feelings change you as a person, to be shaken by, surprised by and to be inspired by. Feelings encourage creativity. Be the person who isn’t afraid to feel deeply.

Laugh with no care.

Laugh like no one is watching. Close your eyes and laugh, celebrate all the great things in life and celebrate your happiness. Tell jokes, silly stories, make others smile and bring everyone together. There is always a reason to smile and laugh, remember that.

Work with purpose.

Go to work every single day with a smile. Open the door and think of all the positive possibilities. Make every interaction mean something; make every communication legitimate and thought through. Make every day better than the previous. Don’t allow yourself to feel stuck. Work towards something with purpose.

Listen closely.

Think of others, make them feel special and listen to what they have to say. Try to understand others and try to help them in anyway that you can. Listen to your inner voice as well, understand  yourself too, what you are feeling.

Cry freely.

Whether it is sad tears or happy tears. Don’t shy away from this emotion, allow yourself to experience this and let yourself cry freely. Give yourself time and then heal after.

Love senselessly.

Love the person because you want to love them, because he/she is who you have decided is the person you want to spend the rest of you life with, even if it won’t last that long. Love the person because you have, and will continue to choose them every day. Love them fearlessly, passionately, stupidly. Because life is too short to not fully love.

Live with intention.

Choose to live your life the way you want it. Live every day with purpose. Open your eyes and choose to be productive, to go after what / who you love. Choose to make a difference, say what you mean and give. Live with intention and pursue what you want relentlessly and be fearless. Choose to be happy

    The last point about living with intention really stands out to me. We were born to live our own individual lives in our individual way, although it’s easier said then done sometimes 🙂

    • Elise B

      Yes, you are quite right. It is easier said than done, but if we try and do what we love I think we are on our way there 🙂

  • Great post! You write so beautifully.
