Living Intentionally 2017 – 08

Weekly Intention:?This is an unusual week. It includes a day off, a really full day of work, two days of travel and two days of vacation. My intention this week, which i will have to reset right now on Monday night as I type this is to let everything go. To breathe and try really hard to appreciate all of what I have and all of what I will get to experience in the next week. I have been exhausted, worn out and just off this weekend. I seem to be invigorated at work and I expect I will be so on vacation, too. I will remind myself that these are the moments of my life and I get to choose what they mean. I get to make the most of this week. I get to choose.

This month?s intention is:?Shine from the Outside In: It might seem counter-intuitive but sometimes it helps to start with the outside. Take care of your body, your skin, your teeth. Dress in a way that makes you feel good. Show up and look the part. I didn’t get to buy makeup this past week. And clearly I am not doing much of this either. But it’s ok. I will get to it.

Ways to Shine this week:

  • One: Bold: It would be bold for me to relax and be in the moment this week. Can I do it?
  • Two: Open: ?I need to be open to some feedback tomorrow. I need to be open to taking this vacation one day at a time and know that it will all be ok.
  • Three: Heal/Nourish: I’d like to focus on nourishment while we’re away. Getting slowly back on track. Can I do it?

I am looking forward to: magic. with my kids. what more can i want?

This week?s challenges: a long work day. a lot of hours in the car. two long days of walking. but also…a lot of magic.

Top Goals:

  • Work: do as much as i can tomorrow. and then let it go.
  • Personal: ?honestly. i just want to be kind to myself. to experience the joy and magic and be so good. so happy.
  • Family:?be kind. be generous. let them see all the magic, too.

I will focus on my core desires (bold, mindful, nourish, love) by: shining this week. I will go to sleep tonight and let everything go. i will allow myself to experience each moment of this crazy week.

This week, I will say yes to: letting things go. whatever happens happens. we will have many more chances to get it right.

This week, I will say no to: stressing the rest of my family out. getting in the way of this being a fun experience.

I am worried that:?my kids won’t like it. we will mess something up or miss something. something will go wrong. the tickets will be missing. it won’t be a fun vacation. i will be exhausted. i will be grumpy. i will be stingy. i will mess it all up.

This week, I want to remember:? that life is about experiences. this is our chance to make new ones. let’s embrace it.
