INTENTION

by Mindi Martinez

“The act or instance of determining mentally upon some action or result.”

I intend to eat clean today. 
I intend to practice random kindness to people I don’t know well. 
I intend to slap a smile on my face and grin and bear it today regardless of what happens. 
I intend to get to the gym, even if I really don’t want to because it’s then that I need it the most.
I intend to compete again, even if I know I won’t be number one.
I intend to focus on what’s going right instead of the things that may be falling apart.
I intend to improve my snatch.
I intend to feel awesome about completing the WOD no matter how many ways I may modify.
I intend to focus on improving the list of skills that bring me to my knees.

Do I follow through with every intention, every day?  No.  I’m not perfect.  Besides, the list changes from day to day.  However, I believe having intentions is better than not having any.  It means you are aware of things you want to change or improve and it keeps them in the forefront of your mind.  What are your intentions?

I graduated from Lexington Healing Arts Academy in Lexington, KY. I have a special interest in Sports & Medical Massage.

It's also what created my love for massage and the knowledge to ease the effects of training and increase performance and recovery. I offer Sports, Myofascial, Deep Tissue, Swedish, & Prenatal modalities in your custom-tailored bodywork.
