Intentional living is any lifestyle based on an individual or group's conscious attempts to live according to their values and beliefs
Intentional living requires one to be aware of one's fundamental beliefs and to be willing to make an effort to have their behavior reflect these beliefs in a form of integrity in relation to his or her conscience and environment. In some cases, such changes are drastic enough that like-minded individuals group together in intentional communities.
Realise that life is made of choices. Attitudes and decisions do not have to be determined by our past but can be chosen
