Living Intentionally 2017 – 17

Weekly Intention: This is a week of family. Nathaniel’s birthday is today and we will celebrate both in the morning and the evening. Tuesday is a bit of a crazy busy day but the only one this week. Wednesday morning Nathaniel gets to come to work with be for bring your kids to work day. Thursday he gets to go to the doctor for his well appointment and David goes to the orthodontist this week, too. Saturday is Nathaniel’s official birthday party and then we have to race down to the Tech Museum because it’s also David’s Tech Challenge day! Sunday is another birthday party for Nathaniel. So it’s a lot of time with the boys celebrating, taking care of, and driving around. It’s a no-meeting week so I will also have all the evenings free this week which is an incredible rarity. I plan to take advantage of it by having some wonderful family time and some lovely quiet time which I hope I can fill with the journaling I intended to do last week. I am ok to let myself mourn a tiny bit more this week if I need but I’d also like to transition to the next phase and stop wallowing. I’d love to sleep a bit extra while I can. Mostly, I’d like to celebrate my (not so) little people!

Things I want to get Done: 

  • Wrap Nathaniel’s presents!
  • I really would like to put a dent in the Sydney trip plans.
  • Book my work hotel for Sydney. 
  • Order and get his cake, make his baggies, in general get ready for the party.
  • Help David with his journal. Get it ready.
  • Book the kids’ summer camps
  • Send newsletters

This month’s intention is:  Shine Quietly: It’s crucial to take time to reflect. Take this month to reflect on how things are going. Is there anything you need to adjust/change/drop or pick up. It’s ok to shift things. It’s also important to acknowledge what’s working. Take the time to shine some light inward and see what’s going on. I love this intention. I want to honor it. I am not sure what’s getting in the way of my journaling and why I am resisting it so much.

Ways to Shine this week:

  • One: Bold: I don’t have any bold plans this week. Taking it easy this time.
  • Two: Open: Open to understanding how to grow. To doing things differently.
  • Three: Heal/Nourish: Here’s to increasing my vegetable intake!

I am looking forward to: celebrating Nathaniel!

This week’s challenges: Tuesday and Saturday are a bit fuller than I’d like but I am not going to worry about it.

Top Goals:

  • Work: stepping back and picking up what’s fallen on the floor.
  • Personal: get out of the funk. enough is enough.
  • Family: celebrate both my boys.

I will focus on my core desires (bold, mindful, nourish, love) by: designing the life I want for myself.

This week, I will say yes to: enjoying my free evenings.

This week, I will say no to: wasting time.

I am worried that:  i won’t be able to figure a way forward, it will continue to be vague. nathaniel’s party won’t be good. david’s team will struggle. i will be unproductive all week. i won’t be able to let go. i won’t journal or eat well or give myself grace. I will continue to be where i’ve been.

This week, I want to remember:  that every day is a new one and i get to start over. i get to choose.
