Daily Wisdom Words definition-The thoughts we have that we plan on following through with.
Our intentions are sometimes different than what ultimately happens in our lives. However, it is important we have them. Our intentions are where it all starts. It is our plan or goal, and what we plan on doing. We have intentions of doing something, so we can set our minds in a direction and follow it.
Our intentions show us what we want out of our lives. If we analyze our intentions, we can tell what kind of person we really are. For instance, if a man has intentions on marrying you, that is the direction which he is headed with you. You have no guarantees but you have his expression of what he wishes to do.
Intentions tell us about our character, because it shows how solid our word is. If we follow through with our intentions, it is a pretty good indicator that we are a person of our word. Although an intention is not a promise, it is the next best thing, and should never be taken lightly. If you express to someone what you have intentions of doing involving them, it is all the more important we go through with them so that the other person can trust us and our word.
I have always had intentions of writing a book, and I have started one, but haven’t had the time to focus on it. However, I have intentions of finishing it. If I don’t, I hurt no one but myself. However, if I make verbal my intentions to another, then I had better take them more seriously. We do hurt ourselves when we don’t follow through with our intentions for ourselves, because we feel like failures when we don’t follow through with them, so take you intentions, seriously, whether you have them for yourself or intentions towards another.
