Live your life Proactive And Intentional

Proactive and Intentional are two of my favorite words. I often wonder why they are my favorite since I am prone to be anything but proactive and intentional. Proactive, to act or intervene on the front end.   Intentional, done with purpose or reason. I often talk about how fleeting life is. It moves forward […]
