Living Intentionally 2017 – 03

Weekly Intention: This is a bit of an odd week. Tuesday promises to be very stressful with several important meetings and multiple context changes and Wednesday looks mild at the moment but I suspect it will fill up and it certainly goes all the way into the night. And then the latter end of the week is quieter but will require two trips to David’s school. Both, possibly in the rain. One during rush hour on Friday. Not my favorite time to be on the road. I feel that if I make it past Tuesday, it will get easier. My intention this week is to be mindful, intentional and slow. Listen more than I talk. Be organized, intentional and methodical. I would like to be efficient in the work I get done and then rest as much as possible.

This month’s intention is: Rise and Shine. Hit the ground running.

Ways to Shine this week:

  • One: Bold: Tuesday is going to be all about being bold, baby!
  • Two: Open: I get to celebrate David this week. All of his accomplishments at school. I can’t wait.
  • Three: Heal/Nourish: I’d like to spend some time with self-care this week. Maybe a nice, warm bath is in order. Certainly, so is journaling.

I am looking forward to: David’s culmination.
This week’s challenges: a tough Tuesday. an interview on Thursday. all my nights this week are full. So i will have to work extra hard to rest.
Top Goals:

  • Work: actually start creating weekly summaries, see if I can pull it together. i have an idea but we will see if it comes together.
  • Personal:  do art. i feel disappointed in myself that i’ve made no February art already.
  • Family: helping Jake, getting back into routine for Nathaniel and helping David is all I want this week.

I will focus on my core desires (bold, mindful, nourish, love) by: slowing down this week. this will be hard with how full the week is but i will try to stay grounded in this moment. just take things one meeting at a time. i will remember not to put the urgent before the important. i will try.

This week, I will say yes to: some time with friends. i haven’t seen friends in a while.
This week, I will say no to: aiming for perfection. these status emails will be work in progress. one week at a time.
I am worried that: i will not get enough done this week. i  am worried the emails will be terrible, not useful. i am worried that i will not be able to maintain this work of staying on top of all of the tracking craziness. i am worried that i will mess up the interview i am going to conduct. i am worried that it will rain. i am worried that i will be tired and mess things up. i am worried that i will never feel more energy even though i am trying to eat better.
This week, I want to remember: i am loved and worthy. my worth doesn’t come from my job, my ability to mother my kids or be a wife. I just am and it’s ok that i mess up. what matters is that i get up and i keep trying. i will always keep trying.

Here’s to a great week!
