Living Wild – 10

Weekly Intention: This week my intention is to try to go back to a bit of a routine for myself and find ways to ground myself. The coronavirus news is definitely creating a low but persistent level of anxiety in me. Coupled with the inability to go climbing and working late nights due to perf, I am more discombobulated than I’d like to be. My intention this week is to go back to exercising in the mornings on the treadmill and to see if I can make it to two classes at work this week. Coupled with some drawing and some journaling I am hoping that will ground me. I also plan to leave work at a reasonable time every day, even if it delays perf even further.

This month’s intention is: Wild Air:  Go outside. Smell the spring air. The seasons are shifting again and it’s time to try new things, new  places, take new chances. Pick one thing and go big. Drink the wild air.  I did finally make the exercise list from February but I still didn’t make a list of people to reach out to and date nights to do. I did start a hike list but we only managed to do half of one this week. Let’s see how we manage next week. We also have to apply for our Whitney and Half Dome as this is the last week for Whitney.

One way I will show up this week:  calm.

I will go into the wild:  I am hoping that Jake and I can take another hike this weekend and I also want to get out for 20 minutes every day, even if it’s just to sit in the sun.

This week, I will pay attention to: continuing the food plan, getting more exercise, and finishing perf. setting a routine for some of my other work that’s still not settled.

One new thing I will begin this week: back to daily walking.

One magic I will create: I want to have a bit of a time with my kids if I can pull it off this week. Some small magic together as a family.

One thing I hope to release: the guilt i feel over how off this year feels so far. how little i feel like i am honoring my word. also how hard i am being on myself.

One thing I will join in on: work exercise classes!

One area I will practice being open: that everything will be okay.

I am looking forward to: perf being done.

This week’s challenges: just going back into routine, exercising again.

  • Top Goals:
    • Work: finish perf. stay on top of email. spend some time with nbu and tokyo. write down plans.
    • Personal: i still really crave the way figure out a routine that works for me. i still crave journaling. go back to exercising more. continue eating the wild.
    • Family: support nathaniel and david and jake. taxes. whitney and half dome. science fairs. school breakfast.

I will focus on my values (love, learn, peace, service, gratitude): i am trying to remember these, keep it all in perspective, and lean into who i am and what I value.

This week, I want to remember: i am so lucky and blessed.
