Intentional living quotes

In my ongoing adventures in the joys and benefits of intentional living, I’ve collated and stumbled upon quite a fair few inspiring quotes around this topic.

And to help you fall in love with this approach as much as I have, I thought it would be helpful to share a few gems from my collection here.



“Each of us have an epic life within us,
and it is your responsibility to bring it out of you.

~ Gina DeVEe

“Attention energises & intention transforms.” 

~ Deepak Chopra

everyone is a designer naomi cleaver quote danielle raine creativity blog

“Designers imagine things that don’t yet exist,

and then they build them,

and then the world changes. 

You can do this in your own life.” 

~ Bill Burnett & Dave Evans

“Notice when flow happens,

and change your life

to make it happen more often.” 

~ Vishen Lakhiani

marie forleo joy heart service intentional living quote

“Do the thing you love to do,

and do it for the joy and thrill of it.

“It ain’t what you do,

it’s the way that you do it.

That’s what gets results.” 

~ Bananarama

I’ve also devoted an entire blog category to my musings (so far) on the empowered approach of living with intention and by design.

And the beauty of this approach to Life by Design is that you get to plan and shape the way it looks for you.

We all have vastly varying preferences and circumstances, as well as a variety of talents, hopes and dreams.

There is no single solution that works for everyone.

Happily, I believe that there are many paths to the meaningful, joyful lives we’re all seeking.

I also believe that each of us has a uniquely perfect blueprint, our own distinctive design that includes the perfect blend of challenges and victories. (Or to use a Sanskrit word that I love; dharma)

And it all starts when we begin to live intentionally, or at least, to give some thought to what that might look like for us.

So I hope you enjoy these resources for getting intentional about what matters to you, and living your precious and valuable life by design, rather than default.

Because that way, magic lies… ?
