For the December SavingsPinay Series will all be focusing on how to live life intentionally. Now this is a topic very close to my heart. You see, I’ve been wanting for so long to live life more intentionally. I struggle for the past years to commit to this goal more so prayer of becoming more intentional in my ways. Welcome to SavingsPinay’s Series Intentional Living This 2016.

I believe this series is very timely especially now that a New Year begins. I do hope as we start this series we will all learn to live life intentionally this 2016 and forever.

What Does Intentional Living Mean?

By definition, intentional living is all about living life with full consciousness. You know why you do what you do. You think about the consequences of your action and you face everything not as an option but a decision.

To Live Intentionally Is To Be Aware of What’s Happening At The Moment

It is important to be aware of who you are and where you are at the moment. intentional Living is all about becoming aware of your life and becoming conscious of your surroundings. 

Think about the following:
  • Are you happy? with your life? with your job? with your relationship? etc.
  • Is there anything bothering you at the moment? personal debt? holiday budget? overdue expenses? failed relationship? etc.
  • What are your goals? your dreams? your ambition? 
  • Are you satisfied with your life currently? Is there anything you want differently?
To Live Intentionally Is To Become In Control with What’s More Important

Every day we are faced with a choice. To go or not to go. To wear this or to wear that. To push or to let go. To stop or to continue. The options are available for us to learn how to make wise decisions. 

And we are entitled to commit mistakes. After all, living intentionally is not about perfection. Rather it is a lifestyle of making each decision count. 



Living Intentionally will make you more focused, more purposeful and more present. You will never feel missing a big chunk of the day ever again. Before your next action, you know exactly the answer to why you are doing it. That’s, my dear, is called setting an intention.
