Hi Team...

Well, today is my first day back writing to you since before the Holidays....

What started with just some time off to round out the year turned into a two week dog-fight with the old covid...

Over my break, I learned something that I wanted to share....

Silence is not over-rated....

Alongside that, speed is something to watch and monitor.....

These two statements are important because they vacate the belief that we always have to be doing something- when in fact, sometime we can get too fast and too loud that we lose our ability to think...

Let me share....

Last year, personally was a great year.

But, as the year was winding down, I was already focused on THIS year- and I never really took any time to chill out, relax, and celebrate that great year that was... until I was forced to.

Then, I pulled out my notebook, my book of wins and wrote down all the great things that happened last year- and there were plenty....

That also gave me a sense of accomplishment...

And a sense of joy....

I had to slow down and get silent in order to obtain the necessary state of mind and being to recall and re-experience the above...

There is a word that floats around quite a bit today: Intention

Intention simply means: a determination to act in a certain way....

And I believe we all need some intention in our lives or they will pass us by...

  • Be intentional about how and where you spend your time...
  • Be intentional about who you spend your time...
  • Be intentional about what you want to learn....
  • Be intentional about what you want out of your day, your year, and your life.....
  • Be intentional about the energy you want to have and the views you want to have on certain things....

Be intentional- because when you are, you get a deeper understanding of yourself- and a much more deep life experience....

So, as you head into your day today, slow down, release the pressure, and simply enjoy what you get to do today- you will be rewarded for your intent, your presence, and your living and being more in the moment!

Today is a going to be a great day- just slow down enough to make it such.

Your Coach,

COACH DANA CAVALEA
