On Living Intentionally

This journey began with my approaching midlife (see the My Story page). As I noticed changes in my health and appearance, it became clear that this was an opportunity to take a step back and truly look at what matters to me. Many of the goals I had been pursuing seemed trivial and externally driven. With the benefit of space for reflection, I realized that there was much more to my life. I had always been goal-oriented and focused on my values, however, that was still not quite on point. There was something deeper calling to me. It finally occurred to me that living with intention is not so much about writing down your values and goals and making consistent choices, it is more about being present enough in each moment to hear your inner compass and respond to its wisdom.

This style of living with intention is a different way of responding to the world and in the world. It is, admittedly, counter-cultural. It is, no doubt, life changing. Adapting this way of life will result in a simplicity and clarity of purpose that eases and ignites our journey.

Life is a collection of a variety of types of seasons. The most obvious are the seasons in a calendar year, but there are many other types of seasons. Childhood, adolescence, midlife and the golden years are all seasons. There are even “seasons” in each day: the morning routine, work, leisure, and evening routine. All of us have physical, emotional, mental and spiritual seasons that ebb and flow through time. 

With the benefit of some experience, these seasons seem to have a familiar structure and rhythm. Raw at 50 is about embracing life’s seasons and the lessons they can teach us. “Raw” living comes from aligning with the unadulterated wisdom of within. From this perspective, we can be grateful for our past, be firmly planted in our present, and walk assuredly into our future.
