Living Intentionally 2017 – 28

Weekly Intention: Here we go, we went on vacation and we’re back and now I can settle into the summer. We have seven weeks left before school starts and five-six weeks before thinking about school and buying things will have to start. that’s not really enough time to get any routine going but it’s enough time for me to take advantage of the flexible schedule to see if I can introduce a few new things into my life that I can bake into a routine next school year. For this week, my intentions are a bit audacious possibly. But I also know that I am not one of those start with small steps and increase kind of gal. I like to go all in. So this week’s intention is to just jump in. All in on work, all in on exercise, all in on food, all in on journaling and reserving time for myself each day, all in with helping the kids with their work. Neither of the kids have camp this week (they start next week) so my goal is to make sure there’s no flopping on the couch.

Living Intentionally 2017 – 23

Weekly Intention: This is the first week of summer for Nathaniel. I am still feeling sick and have a full day tomorrow with two client calls, 5 meetings, and a 6-hour trip to David’s school at night. Then I move to an all-day meeting at the school on Tuesday (and then a late meeting at work), a full-day at work Wednesday and then quieter day on Thursday. Friday’s David’s last day which means a half-day party. The weekend comes with a birthday party and a bat-mitzvah. And this is my last weekend in town before I am gone for three weeks. Phew. just writing all that down made me tired. So the intention for this week is going to have to be to be graceful. To be slow. To own my own story. To be intentional. To show up. To notice and appreciate the fulness of my life.

Ways to Shine this week:

  • One: Bold: Tuesday is when I want to be bold this week.
  • Two: Open: Open to feedback this Thursday.
  • Three: Heal/Nourish: I want to rest more so I can feel better.

This week, I want to remember:  that journaling really helps.

Weekly Reflection 2017 – 22

How I shone this week: This was a good week. Even though I woke up quite sick on Thursday morning and still feel under the weather, I still feel good about this week. It didn’t really feel like a 4-day week though. I started the week at David’s school, learning all about seventh grade. How is it possible that I have a seventh grader?! I ended the week with a party celebrating Nathaniel moving on to third grade. In between, I went to work.  I did work. and I had meetings. I also tried to rest and recover a bit. I feel grateful for my life.

Things I wanted to get Done:  I’ve established a bit of a routine working Saturday mornings. Not sure if this is a good thing or not a good thing. For now, it’s working for me. I will say that we didn’t hike two weeks in a row and that’s less ideal.

  • Work: I didn’t document much this week but I have some plans.  I did schedule a lot of meetings and made some plans. 
  • Personal: No exercise this week at all. I am all caught up in glow and did the OLW June and went to the doctor.  Didn’t really do much more art but I think that might be ok for now. Exercise and food are still sadly a work in progress. So little progress.
  • Family: Took photos! Did not do summer schedule yet. Maybe this week.

I celebrate: the last week of school for david!

I am grateful for: the journaling i’ve been doing. it helps.

I nourished myself by: resting most of Friday when i was really sick.

Reflecting on my worries:  i didn’t mess up so far. meetings happened and went well. feedback is coming next week so we’ll see. no other bad news so far. school’s been ok. i am starting to decide i should give up worrying.

I let go of: trying to do too much this weekend. i’m still sick and i am just tired so i decided it’s ok to rest.

Core Desire Check-in (bold, mindful, nourish, love):

  • bold: I think i am being boldest at work at the moment. What would it look like if i were bolder at home? bolder with my kids, with jake, with myself. with my friends?
  • mindful: mindful of how tired i’m feeling lately. how much rest i need.
  • nourish: i’ve been better about not being mindless here but i think this is still an area where i am not doing as well as i’d like.
  • love: i love my life.

What made me laugh this week: friends i saw while at the kids’ school. it was fun to be a bit early and chat.

What I tolerated this week: being sick. not a fan.

My mood this week was: calmer. 
I forgive myself for: not showing up to a few things because I felt so sick.
What I love right now: sitting out in the backyard.

Here’s to a wonderful week twenty-three! 

Living Intentionally 2017 – 22

Weekly Intention: This is a short week since Monday is a national holiday here. Tuesday I have a trip to David’s school and one to the doctor.

Friday it looks like I might be back at work again. Saturday and Sunday we have one kid event each. Thursday’s also the last day of school for Nathaniel. Hello summer.

Thank them.  I can’t even tell you how amazing I find the fact that I wasn’t able to do this once this whole month. I think it says a lot. Maybe I can sneak in a surprise there for Tuesday and Wednesday? June is: Shine Through: Let yourself be seen this month. Express yourself. Be true to you. Own who you are. I expect to start this on Friday. Let’s see if I can.

I am worried that:  i will mess up. meetings won’t happen or will without me or will go badly. feedback will be that i am still not actually ok to go. some bad news from somewhere else. david will have a bad last few weeks of school. i am mostly worried that i am not worried enough 🙂

This week, I want to remember: that it will be ok. it really will.

  • Family: Family photos.
  • Family: Spend time with Jake’s parents.

This month’s intention is: May: Help others Shine: Ok now it’s others’ turn. It’s time to be the mirror to their light so it can reflect off of you. Think of ways big and small that you can help people in your life see their own light this month. Smile. Show them how amazing they are. Thank them.  Ok one more week passed and I still have made NO notes! what does this mean about me?

Ways to Shine this week:

  • One: Bold: I would like to see if I can connect a bit in Seattle.
  • Two: Open: Open to stepping up a bit more. Seeing what’s possible.
  • Three: Heal/Nourish: More journaling. A bit of sketching. Resting.

I am looking forward to: Seattle, my class, David coming back, 4-day weekend.

This week’s challenges: a really early flight to Seattle and a really late return. I will need a lot of sleep. A week without David means I will miss him so!

Top Goals:

  • Work: more documentation. connecting.
  • Personal: some more work on Glow. Eating clean.
  • Family: once all 4 of us are under the same roof again, lots of resting and laughing together.

I will focus on my core desires (bold, mindful, nourish, love) by: remembering that i’ve got this. i can do this.

This week, I will say yes to: assuming the best.

This week, I will say no to: being anxious.

I am worried that:  something will happen to david or that he won’t have a good time. My flight to SEA will be delayed. My trip will be unsuccessful. I will annoy someone important. I will be so incredibly tired. I will eat poorly. I won’t do more of Glow. I won’t like the class.

This week, I want to remember: that all i have to do is show up.
