Everyday Magic – 10

Weekly Intention: When I said last week was hectic, I was lying. This week is insane. We already had a busy weekend with a camping trip, science fair, several tech challenge meetings, but now I have a 2-day work offsite that I am running, hair appointment and a dinner guest monday night, a work dinner tuesday night, and possibly a school event on Wednesday night. Oh and possibly another event Thursday night. Just writing that makes me want to weep. Not to mention a bunch more perf this week. So my intention this week is going to have to be to surrender. To be in the moment. To be grateful for all the layers of my life. There are small moments like this when they all come to the surface at the same time but it’s rare and I enjoy the layers so much.

This month’s intention is: Personal Magic:  Time to slow down again and be intentional. This month think about yourself, what you have to offer to the world, what makes you, you. What’s unique and personal. Show up as your best self. This month is not about improving but owning. From February, on my plate still is: spring break, Nathaniel’s birthday trip, summer vacation, and the taxes. I really love March’s challenge. I think it will align well with what I want to do at work.

One way I will show up this week:  excited, open, energetic.

One magic I will make this week: i will show up energetically for my hubby.

This week, I will pay attention to: how my energy is so I can decide whether to attend all the events.

This week, I will be kinder to: myself and the kids.

This week, I will focus on pleasing: hmmm… myself after i’ve already done all of what i outlined above.

One new thing I will learn this week: how can i make time to sketch even a bit daily?

I am looking forward to: finishing taxes and perf!

This week’s challenges: having all my evenings busy is challenging for me. and i won’t be able to exercise Tuesday and Wednesday since i won’t be at work.

Top Goals: 

  • Work: offsite + perf+ empty out email
  • Personal: daily drawing, journal, yoga, and do a hike?, stay sane? 🙂
  • Family:  science fair, math with N, cook dinner, work with D. Lots of time with love of my life.

I will focus on my values:

  • Love: love for myself this week. how can i be kinder?
  • Learn: how to squeeze in the art.
  • Peace: peace with perf + evening commitments.
  • Service: to work and to Jake and David this week.
  • Gratitude: gratitude for my life. 

This week, I want to remember: that my kids are growing up and will soon be gone and so will all these wonderful opportunities that sometimes overwhelm me. it’s ok to be overwhelmed but it’s also ok to enjoy it.

Everyday Magic is a year-long project for 2019. You can read more about my projects for 2019 here.
