Live with intention.
Walk to the edge.
Play with abandon.
Choose with no regret.
Appreciate your friends.
Continue to learn.
Do what you love.
Live as if this is all there is.”
― Mary Anne Radmacher
I knew I wanted this blog post to be about intent. I truly believe that thinking about our intents, cultivating and manifesting them, we birth an environment in which they’re more likely to happen. So I have been making an effort to nurture my intent – be it being more present, making a conscious effort to laugh more or compliment someone, smell the fresh food and the flowers before rushing in to take a photo or simply turn towards the sun and smile in gratitude.
However one of the most important intent, I am still traversing through and learn – is being kind to myself. I am my harsh critic and I am extremely hard on myself, judgemental on how I look, how I behave and how I am, its taken some work to be honest, to come to a place I am at peace with myself. It’s a lifelong commitment. I dont think we ever reach, we continue to discover ourselves in this journey and reach an understanding to take care of ourselves as we unravel.
One of my ways to living with intent is to nourish my soul. And as I have grown older I realised its where the sea is. The swa, the sound of the waves crashing, the water lapping at my feet, the sun on my face, the salt in my hair and the sand on my feel – cures all ailments of my soul. And I could I would live in this feeling all my life.
Lately because of this relentless pandemic and lockdowns have given rise to shorter tempers and growing unease – its easier to lose sight of who we are and what we stand for and how we perceive our lives. So an intentional living I found, brings joy, hope and positivity to the soul.

5pm, to the beach
As long as I was on the path I walked hard, but when I came to the beautiful glowing, white sandy beach I had to run. For the tide was now nearly flowed; and to get through with my powder dry between the surf and the steep hill, took all the quickness I possessed. As it was, even, the wash caught me to the knees, and I came near falling on a stone. All this time the hurry I was in, and the free air and smell of the sea, kept my spirits lively; but when I was once in the bush and began to climb the path I took it easier.
