If I am out walking my dog, going for a run, or working at a job that I enjoy, life is good. Is this what is called Intentional Living – Am I living my life or is life living me? Although I wonder what does it mean when I am doing things continuously to please others, and life becomes a chore?
“If you aren’t doing what you love and loving what you do, your power of intention is weakened. You attract into your life more of the dissatisfaction that isn’t the face of love. Consequently, more of what you don’t love will appear in your life.”― Wayne W. Dyer
The question is a profound one for me. I know I am a people pleaser, as I often forget about myself. Usually, I ignore the stuff that I enjoy, so others are happy. Nevertheless, it makes me happy to know they are content, though sometimes it leaves me feeling unfulfilled.
How Do You Live Intentionally?

What is Living an Authentic Life?
An authentic life means living intentionally—living intentionally with the guidance of your inner world and the collective world. The meaning of ‘living a life’ is to do what you want, so you feel Happiness.
Often people don’t live, their own lives, but what everyone else expects from them. People let life live them instead of living their own life. To be born is such a gift, but many of us are not living an authentic life. You need to start to Live Intentionally
We are doing what we think we are supposed to be doing, and it is not in alignment with who we are. I believe life is about being happy, but we wander with no aspirations, no intentions, no ideas, and no goals for a higher purpose.
To live authentically is to do the things that you love. Being yourself and accepting who you are—remember that you are a special, unique human being here to experience life on earth.
Why Is It Important to be Intentional?
To live your best life means living to your potential, feeling like you have a purpose, and feeling happy. It means helping yourself so you can help others. To be the best version of you it an intention, and this is Intentional Living. All of a sudden, life isn’t living you you are living life.
Which means you need to take care of you first. Doing more for you, therefore, brings happiness to those around you. It is a win-win situation.
Often, we learn through life lessons. Living a life catered to others is only cheating yourself. Furthermore, lies are nothing but a weight that pulls on your soul.
It is nice to help others. Just don’t forget about yourself. When you’re always putting others before you, possibly so others will see the good in you, you’re ignoring your needs, ultimately upset your heart and soul.
No doubt, this hides away a beautiful Self that thinks it is not good enough.
How to Change Your Life For the Better
Don’t let your life get lost in the mind-boggling distortions of the world. Get out of the dark place you are sitting in and feel the light.
Indeed, you are both darkness and light.
Know you are essential to the collective design of this world! The world that encircles you will see you and the marvellous person you are!
Don’t feel apologetic for doing what you love or doing your own thing. It’s time to experience your authentic life. Intentional Living means you are Living your Life, not letting Life Live You. And if anything, people will look up to you for being your own person. Now is the time to Live intentionally!!
