Putting It Out There

“Today is going to be a good day.”

I said this out loud the other day. I was in my car, so I was still alone, but I felt a little silly saying it out loud just the same.

Why silly, you may ask?

I’m still trying to unpack that, but I think that it’s got it’s roots in my hesitation to ask for anything.

I’m getting better at that, but clearly there’s more work to be done – and that’s (maybe) another post.

The point I’m getting at here is about the declaration of Intent. I capitalized that on purpose.


As a noun, it’s Intention or Purpose

As an adjective, it’s a resolve or a determination to do something.

I am using it here as both.

By declaring that the day was going to be a good day, I was putting my intent out there for the Universe to hear. It was also a statement for myself, identifying a goal.

That’s not to say that by doing this, I was done working on that goal for the day. There’s still work to do, but the first step is adopting the proper mindset.

Additionally, there’s the abstract notion that the Universe may be listening. That it may, in fact, decide “Hey, that’s not a bad idea. Here you go, Ken. Have a great day.”

If you’ve followed me here for just about any length of time, this mindset shouldn’t come as any surprise to you. If you’re new here (Welcome), you should know that I’m a firm believer in The Muse. She’s out there, part of the Universe – just like the rest of us, and it never hurts to put what you want out there.

Again, there’s still work to do. As they say: The Muse will come, but She must find you working.

So here’s your homework:

Take a bit of time this week and state your intent. Maybe it’s for the day, the week, the rest of your life, it doesn’t matter.

Say it out loud. If you need to, later on, write it down, but the words must pass your lips.

Put it out there.

Thanks for reading. Be safe out there. Be Excellent to Each other – and yourself.

I’ll see you on Thursday.
