Stronger Than Before – 16

Weekly Intention: This week is a long but normal work week. I have a ton of meetings and I will be spending all of Wednesday in a day-long meeting but for the most part I have no trips to school, no evening events except for prepping for the Wednesday meeting. I am hoping this means I can go to sleep early every night. My plan and intention for this week is twofold: to spend a bit of time thinking about my new job more and then to rest as much as possible.

This month’s intention is: Emotionally Strong: This is the time to work on being a better version of you. And loving you. Loving what is.  Respond and don’t react. Journal more. Doing a really crappy job of journaling, I am hoping to do better soon.

One way I will stretch this week:  I am taking a “learn how to bike” class this weekend. it will be stretching me a lot.

One boundary I will set this week: bedtime and rest time.

This week, I will focus on pleasing: my body a bit. it needs so much more rest than it’s getting.

One new thing I will learn this week: how to ride a bike!

One area where I will go deeper this week: i want to do better with the journaling, with understanding how i’m feeling.

What do I need to sit with this week? i need to sit with how i feel about my new job. and the next few months. i want to spend some time thinking about it deeply. so i can live intentionally. (I didn’t do this last week, maybe this week.)

I am looking forward to: going to bed early. 🙂 

This week’s challenges: learning to bike is going to be really challenging especially if my sciatica isn’t  better by then.

Top Goals: 

  • Work:  figure out what’s next, get summits squared away, make summer plans.
  • Personal: pilates daily, journal, figure out food.
  • Family: buy nathaniel presents, book cars in europe,  finish booking summer camps

I will focus on my values:

  • Love: i think my body needs a little extra love this week. extra rest.
  • Learn: learn to think about how i want my job to evolve.
  • Peace: peace with resting.
  • Service: this week’s service is work for the all day meeting.
  • Gratitude: my full life and my body for putting up with me.

This week, I want to remember: to enjoy the regular, quieter weeks like this one.
