Agile Intent

vegetable soup.JPG

I intended to write in my journal
but a call from my daughter in Europe
took precedence over my plan

I intended to cook chicken for dinner
but dropping temps and a show of snow
inspired vegetable soup

I intended to go to the gym
but sparked by thoughts to create,
I stayed home to polish a poem

Where do I find the balance between
staying centered in solid intent while
agile enough for new inclinations?

    1. Thanks for your comment, V.J. It is a constant challenge for me (I have many posts on this topic!) but it is also a blessing to have choices and know that I can choose my direction. I appreciate the approach you summarize for dealing with this challenge.
