20 Favourite Intentional Living Quotes

This year I decided my power word would be intentional, subsequently I have been focusing on it and (un)learning a lot. Today I wanted to share 20 of my favourite intentional living quotes. However, before I share I just wanted to share what an intention is…


What is an Intention?

The are many definitions of an intention including –

  • “the thing that you plan to do or achieve: an aim or purpose” ~ Merriam-Webster.com
  • “a thing intended: an aim or plan” ~ Google and Oxford Dictionaries
  • “an act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result” ~ Dictionary.com
  • “Your intentions create your reality.” ~ Wayne Dyer

I think of an intention as a way of BEing or “I Am” statement based on your values – who we are on our deepest level.
