I'm Dana, and I created this lifestyle platform in order to connect women from across the world who are on the pursuit of finding balance, their calling, and weekly inspiration.
This year is all about growth and prosperity, and we are supposed to have that clear 2020 vision all year long, right? For me, my year has started a little bit rocky, but I’m not letting that set the tone for the rest of my year. While I was laying out my 2020 goals and working on my vision board, I decided to take my growth a step further and to give myself a word for the year and a word for each quarter. The plan is to work with myself to grow and apply this word to my daily life. My word for the year is “Intentional.” To me, this means doing “life” on purpose — every aspect of it from my health, my family, my relationships and my brand, The Miss Society.
I want to make sure that I hold myself accountable just as well as I would do for the next person. One thing I can say I’ve been very intentional with is my health. I’ve been working out at least three to four times a week, and I’ve been trying my best to eat as healthy as possible, with a few cheat days of course. Another area I’ve been more intentional with is putting myself out there and making new friends, including my girl Morgan.
Initially I started working with Morgan last year on all things health, and now I can say she’s become not only my personal trainer but a really good friend of mine. If you would have caught me two years ago, I would have been on my “Drake No New Friend” ish. But, I’m so glad I’ve evolved! Because I love my Socialite Circle so much, it wouldn’t be right for me to not share my new friend with y’all. I sat down with Morgan to talk about the power of intentionality. Check out our talk below:
Morgan: I love the word intentional, and I think it’s great you’re tackling that in 2020. One thing that is a must for me is my 30 minutes of alone time. Either in the early morning or late evening I make sure and map out my day, organize the next day, meditate, study my Bible, and clear my head if needed. This alone time is crucial to me, and it’s non-negotiable.
Morgan: I think as a health and fitness professional one of the greatest struggles people have in intentionality is follow through when the initial motivation fades. Most people start the year with the intention to eat healthier and exercise. While that’s a great goal, we can oftentimes get distracted and give up easily. I feel it’s extremely important for everyone, kids alike, to stay intentional about their health and wellness. Whether that’s walking in the evening as a family, giving your kids healthier lunches, or not skipping meals as a busy mama bear. We’ve got one body and that’s it! Keeping yourself intentional about your health and wellness not only makes you live longer, but gives you an opportunity to look & feel your best long term and who doesn’t want that?!
Morgan: Putting health and fitness aside, I hope to be more intentional with my boundaries. I think sometimes I struggle with a work/home balance, when to take clients and when to take a break. I want to make sure that for the rest of the year I’m allowing appropriate time for all the things I find important in my life, family being number 1.
