Living Intentionally 2017 – 13

Weekly Intention: This week is mostly quiet with a challenging Thursday. It’s a combination of mundane tasks like taking David to the dentist and social events like Book Club and meeting a parent and a bunch of work. The intention I want for this week is to be slow. I always run run run and talk fast, move fast, do a lot, etc. There will definitely be some of that running around on Thursday just so I can make it to all my commitments but I still want to slow down as much as I can. I want to listen more than I talk. 

Things I want to get Done: I liked listing some of my big todos last week, so I decided to continue for a while.

  • One is to make sure I sleep even more than I did last week. I still feel really tired.
  • Two is to book the hotel for our summer and make a decision around whether we add another subtrip.
  • Three is to pay the kids’ schools for next year.
  • Four is to finish all the Q2 sheets for work. 
  • Five is to order all of what David needs for his upcoming trip.
  • Six is to keep smiling, keep looking for the good, and keep enjoying myself just the way I am.

This month’s intention is:  Rain or Shine: March is a tough month. You often feel like giving up in March. It feels too long. But it’s not. Keep going, You’re doing great. Remember that the trick is to just show up. Keep showing up. A lot of showing up this week, too. Book Club. Parents from both kids’ schools. To work for meetings. Dentists. Also showing up for my little boy who is sick and needs to stay home from school today.

Ways to Shine this week:

  • One: Bold: This week’s bold move will be to show up to hiking on Saturday.
  • Two: Open: Open to meeting new people, taking on new challenges.
  • Three: Heal/Nourish: I am going to go with exercise this week. I’ve totally stopped it and I would like to restart.

I am looking forward to: book club and book pick night. 

This week’s challenges: thursday starts at D’s school, then i go to N’s school, then I go to work, then I go back to N’s school, and finally I end up at the book store by my house. it will be a looong day.

Top Goals:

  • Work: q2 sheets. 
  • Personal: booking the rest of our vacation. getting D’s stuff. 
  • Family: actually starting a project with the boys.

I will focus on my core desires (bold, mindful, nourish, love) by: trying to be quieter this week. listen more closely.

This week, I will say yes to: taking new chances.

This week, I will say no to: listening to the negative voice inside me which gets triggered more than I’d like.

I am worried that: taxes will not be done on time. thursday will be a disaster. i will miss book club. my knees won’t stop hurting. i will drop the ball on something important. something bad will happen at work. nathaniel won’t get better.

This week, I want to remember:  that i need to focus on what matters most and not let people who don’t matter make it harder for me to be kinder to the people who do matter.
