Intentional Living

I remember one time hearing a phrase that has stuck with me all this time. "Are you living life, or is life living you?" Over the last week or so I have really been mulling over that one a lot. I have to confess, I spend most of my life flying by the seat of my pants. I don't get nearly anything done and it seems like I am always chasing things- whether it be the clock or my two year old.

I believe that intentional living comes with more discipline then I have been using. Yet on the other hand it comes when you are less bound by rules. By that I mean you can't live life if you lack the discipline to limit yourself on the computer time or to go to bed decently so that you are fresh and ready for a new day. On the other hand, you are too rigid in your schedule if you can't take the time to have an experience on the spur of the moment. You also need to roll with the punches to a certain extent.

Anyway, I need to get to bed. I am resisting the urge to check everyones' blogs (sorry guys!) and going upstairs. I will explore this more later.
