Intent...


Today a writing prompt came across my machine to be aware of your intentions...What it made me do was sit back and see the intentions that I have to completing several projects along with starting several more...Now, the problem that I usually have here is that I get in such a BIG HURRY to start the new project that the old ones sometimes sit waiting till the 11th hour when they are due to be completed! So today I am allowing myself to step into my creativity and complete what I have started. This is a day that is turning out to be very powerful for my creative life! I am looking closely at how I go about projects and I am arriving at answers as to why I sometimes have a difficult time finishing others. The presence of having an intent makes me feel more aware and much more awake to myself and my surroundings. Doing one thing at a time today is actually making me feel a bit more organized and content! (now who would of thought that!!) Usually when working on several things at a time, I am also, thinking of different things, writing down different things and pulling things out of bins for other projects...which means although I think I am giving my project my all ...HUMMM...I wonder if I really am...and if I do give it my full attention what would be different about it?? I am not sure if I will continue to work this way...some days I like the chaos and it just leads me on...other days it is so frustrating that nothing gets accomplished. But today this intent is serving me well!
So my wish for you is that you also try and make an intent for yourself...by doing this you take ownership of your actions and you never know you might enjoy the power it gives you. As for me, well...I am now done with my affirmation and my post, so it is back to the paint and a 4 by 4 I am working on with GREAT INTENT!
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

Seems that most of the time, ART is not a journey to completion with the INTENTION of arriving safely in a pretty and well-organized manner; but rather is like boldly surfing that wave of creativity broadside...wrapped in a luminous cloud of star dust, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming,
“Wow! What A Ride!” Pattie J. Mosca is riding that sparkling wave all the way into the shores of becoming 'Nationally Recognized"! BRAVO!!!

Yes, yes, yes Pattie! And I resonate with Royce's message too on ..."arriving..." and as Lori says, it hits home with me. The theme of Intention is in the air... I JUST posted a Mandala on Intention on Tuesday!
Here it is:
