I left my home country a year ago in search of stability, financial stability. This move gave me the exact opposite. Well at least in my opinion. I was everything but stable, emotionally, mentally, socially, spiritually, and yes you guessed it, financially too. I eventually (read a whole year later) realised that I was a mess and I was becoming someone I could no longer recognise.
As you would have it, our world was turned upside down. My world was turned the right way round. This period forced me to deal with parts of myself I had ignored for most of my adult life. This is where my journey of intentional living began. This lifestyle change has gone beyond just my daily habits. It has confronted my inner most being in ways that still scare me today. I live life consciously according to my values and beliefs. Everyday is not perfect and I fall off sometimes but being intentional allows me to get back up faster. Being intentional has put me back at the steering wheel of my life.
