I went into high school with very specific intentions. (Please note that I think Life works better when we direct our energy with Intention.)
1) Maintain a 4.0 GPA
2) Sing with Girls Glee in 10th grade, Girls Glee and Concert Choir 11th grade, and Concert Choir and Swing Choir (a select group requiring audition and the pinnacle of the singing possibilities at my high school) 12th grade. (To do this I NEVER had a lunch period for the last three years of my high school "career.")
3) Take Drama class, Audition for and Be in Plays (2 a year), and in 12th grade be in the Select Ensemble (another audition group)
How did all of that living with intention work out?
I graduated with a 4.0 GPA.
I surprised myself by getting a lead role in the play Up The Down Staircase my junior year. Two leads my senior year.
I was a part of the Select Ensemble my senior year and the Swing Choir.

The aspects of my life that I focused on with intention ALL happened. I also became friends with many people I went to junior high school with (the richies) because they shared similar goals. Instead of being divided over economic difference, we were united in achieving goals. So, I got along with the smart kids, the drama kids, and the choir kids. Quite frankly, I didn't know how good I had it (or that living with Intention is the key to making your dreams come true). It's somewhat sad that I peaked in "smarts" after the 12th grade... Just sayin'.
Since I loved the show Fame and this song sums up my feelings about this time period, it's only fitting. I can do anything better than you can! Just stand aside and watch me fly!
Have you ever noticed that when you live with Intention you are the driver of your car, the captain of your ship, the shaper of your destiny? When you live with Intention, anything is possible!
If you're enjoying these posts, feel free to share your own Soundtrack. This isn't a hop. No requirements at all, but a suggestion to do it one song at a time. (If you participated in the hop several years ago, you can still do this. Just post them one song at a time, with the freedom to add more songs if you'd like.) I'll link to all participants at the bottom of each of these posts:
