Living Intentionally 2017 – 42

 

Weekly Intention: Assuming all goes okay with my flights, I am in Seattle all week this week for work. I will arrive back home very late Friday nights and hopefully my parents will already be in town. My intention this week (as is always the case when I travel for work) is to get a ton of work done so I feel that the trip was worth being away from my family. I also have the intention to find some form of exercise daily, to eat really well and to take some time for myself to step back and make some schedule changes+plans for the next few months. Let’s see how much of this will be possible.

Things I want to get Done: Here’s the list for his week.

  • Work: stay on top of email. 
  • Work: have an awesome summit
  • Work: do posters
  • Work: spend time on T and get set for 2018
  • Work: get to the next level of planning for C
  • Work: maybe see my friend Radhika if I get lucky
  • Personal: exercise every day while in Seattle. 
  • Personal: eat clean clean clean. 
  • Personal: Journal three times.
  • Personal: Do mapmaker #12
  • Personal: Do Brene art 2
  • Personal: Start scheduling November art
  • Personal: Continue with the new scrapping/storytelling system. Make sure Jake takes photos.
  • Family: do math+spelling with N
  • Family: make a plan with D
  • Family:Make lunches for when I am gone
  • Family: Check in regularly with my nephews and my sister.
  • Family: take photos!
  • Family: Spend time with mom and dad!

This month’s intention is:  Shine On: You’re doing great. You made it through September. The year is starting its countdown and you can do this. Remember to keep going. Shine on. Don’t stop now. Just one day at a time. Just one day at a time, indeed.

Ways to Shine this week:

  • One: Bold: Bold at work. Show up. Take advantage of the 1-1 time, ask the hard questions.
  • Two: Open: Open to restructuring my life a bit still both at work and at home.
  • Three: Heal/Nourish: Find a new class.

I am looking forward to: seeing my work friends in Seattle

This week’s challenges: This whole week will be long and intense. I hope to exercise, take some alone time and kick butt the rest of the time.

Top Goals:

  • Work: making 2018 plans.
  • Personal: exercise+food+journaling.
  • Family: getting kids set up with a plan.

I will focus on my core desires (bold, mindful, nourish, love) by: speaking less, listening more and asking good questions this week.

This week, I will say yes to: prepping for 2018.

This week, I will say no to: quitting exercise.

I am worried that:  i won’t exercise. i’ll eat poorly. i wont be able to take the time to organize my life. i won’t get enough done in Seattle. It will have been a waste. i’ll disappoint even more people. i am still feeling worried in general lately because i feel more disconnected and like i am dropping more things on the floor.

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

Living Intentionally 2017 – 41

 

Weekly Intention: I fly to Seattle for work at the end of this week so I won’t have a solid weekend and lately weekends are where I catch up on my life and even work. I also have promotion committee all Monday which means I have a foreshortened week. More reason to be super-diligent about getting things done this week. My plan is to use my time effectively. To sleep a lot. To eat really super well since who knows what will happen in Seattle. To get solidly on track since I know stuff will pile up while I am in Seattle and when I get home my parents will be here so I will want to spend time with them. So intention is to be productive, spend a ton of time with boys, and self-nourish.

The next few weeks have some culminations for our family. Things we’ve been working on and we’ll get to see the results, so I am also praying and hoping for some good results and the ability to handle whatever comes with grace and self-compassion.

Things I want to get Done: Here’s the list for his week.

  • Work: finish booking SYD
  • Work: make plan for life in SEA
  • Personal: exercise 6/7 times. 
  • Personal: kick it up a notch with eating clean. 
  • Personal: Journal three times.
  • Personal: Do mapmaker #11

  • Personal: donate + cash check + call for taxes
  • Personal: Continue with the new scrapping/storytelling system.

  • Family: make a plan with D
  • Family: go to 3rd grade coffee for Nathaniel
  • Family: Check in regularly with my nephews and my sister.

This month’s intention is:  Shine On: You’re doing great. You made it through September. The year is starting its countdown and you can do this. Remember to keep going. Shine on. Don’t stop now. Just one day at a time. Each time these are the best reminders.

Ways to Shine this week:

I am worried that:  i won’t exercise. i’ll continue not eating well. i will fall even more behind. david will be sad. i won’t give enough attention to nathaniel. i will get bad news for me. i’ll disappoint even more people. i am just feeling worried in general lately because i feel more disconnected and like i am dropping more things on the floor.

This week, I want to remember:  that i am just one person and while i like to do a lot of things it’s good to be clear on what matters most and give myself grace on doing the other things less well.

Weekly Reflection 2017 – 35

How I shone this week: This week was a struggle. The first week of school meant two trips to school. Five trips to work. A get together with a friend. It was busy, crazy, overwhelming.

  • mindful: mindful that kids are adjusting, i’m adjusting and this was an emotionally tough week.

This week, I want to remember:  that i am getting stronger every day.

Living Intentionally 2017 – 31

Weekly Intention: This week’s intention is still to just to do more of what I’ve been doing. Get up early. Exercise. Show up. Do it. Eat well. Work hard. Finish things. Catch up on email. Just keep doing what I started. Show up! and do what I need to do to feel a bit more caught up and in control. 

Things I want to get Done: Here’s the list for his week.

  • Work: catch up on starred email.
  • Work: send off q2 closing emails.
  • Work: review round one of september.
  • Work: finish report for q2. (and for transit)
  • Work: get C day planned. 
  • Personal: exercise 6/7 days.
  • Personal: continue eating clean.
  • Personal: schedule Physical Therapy
  • Personal: check in for taxes
  • Personal: cash check 
  • Personal: Journal more.
  • Personal: Do mapmaker #1 and #2
  • Family: spend time together.

This month’s intention is:  July: Shine Boldly: This builds on June a bit but it’s time to take things up a notch. Be bold. Be brave. Be loud. Shine with all your might. Since it’s almost august, I’ll also do August: August: Shine from the Inside Out: Ok you did the outside in and now it’s time to reflect again. The year is half over. How are you doing? What are you keeping on the inside? Also, it’s time to let others see the real you. Don’t be afraid. Shine. Good reminder to journal and to show up.

Ways to Shine this week:

  • One: Bold: Keep keeping the exercise, maybe try one more new thing. 
  • Two: Open: open to making it work with two separate camps this week. 
  • Three: Heal/Nourish: more journaling. eating one new thing.

I am looking forward to: finishing some of the todos at work that i’ve been carrying for too long.

This week’s challenges: making sure the kids’ camp schedule doesn’t interfere with exercise.

Top Goals:

  • Work: finalize september more get ready for C day.
  • Personal: exercise+food+journaling.
  • Family: one fun project with each kid. ( i didn’t do this last week)

I will focus on my core desires (bold, mindful, nourish, love) by: making one good decision at a time!

This week, I will say yes to: having faith in myself.

This week, I will say no to: giving up.

I am worried that:  i won’t exercise. i’ll stop eating well. i will continue to be behind at work. that all the effort i am putting in won’t matter. that david will hate his camp. that i will give up. that i will never catch up. that i won’t journal.

This week, I want to remember:  that i can do this.
