Living Intentionally 2017 – 46


Weekly Intention:  This week is not much different from many. I have a lot of meetings, I have a lot of work. I have to go to the kids’ school twice. I have a few social commitments and not a whole lot of time in general. But I also have a lot more time than I think. I waste a lot of in between time. My intention this week is to snap myself out of whatever’s going on. I want to do this with a few very specific actions:

  1. I want to go back to not eating between meals, no soda or caffeine, and meals full of veggies and protein.
  2. I want to journal every single day, even if for 15 minutes. I can do this. Just to take stock a bit.
  3. I want to make a list of plans for next year, some stock of where i am and where i’d like to go.

Things I want to get Done: Here’s the list for his week.

  • Work: do round 3 of 2018 planning
  • Work: finish + send mentoring form
  • Work: stay on top of email
  • Work: Take stock of SEA and make plans
  • Personal: exercise at least 5 times at work. 
  • Personal: fix the eating issue! 
  • Personal: Journal daily.
  • Personal: make 2018 plans iteration 1
  • Personal: Continue with the new scrapping/storytelling system. 
  • Family: Attend SWI night
  • Family: do coding+spelling with N
  • Family: do calculus with D
  • Family: take photos!

This month’s intention is:  Moving on to November: Shine for You: This is your month. Take all the time you need. Shine all your light on yourself. Be kind, practice self-care. Think about the next year and what you want. Think about the rest of this year. You’ve got this. Perfect opportunity to start planning 2018.

Ways to Shine this week:

  • One: Bold: Taking stock and making a harsh turn into eating well are my bold activities this week.
  • Two: Open: Open to the possibility that I can totally turn things around this week.
  • Three: Heal/Nourish: What are other ways I can nourish myself?

I am looking forward to: sitting down to make some 2018 plans.

This week’s challenges: I think taking the time i need for myself and not moving through the week mindlessly will be a challenge.

Top Goals:

  • Work: finishing next step of 2018.
  • Personal: exercise+food+journaling.
  • Family: i want to work with my kids to think of some ideas… more on this next time.

I will focus on my core desires (bold, mindful, nourish, love) by: making plans for next year, thinking about ways in which i want to grow.

This week, I will say yes to: more family time.

This week, I will say no to: going through the days mindlessly.

I am worried that:  i won’t exercise. i’ll eat poorly. i wont be able to take the time to make plans for 2018. i’ll let down everyone. i won’t rest. i won’t get my energy back. i will fall even more off the line i’m trying to walk. i will mess up at work.

This week, I want to remember:  that I get to choose how things go. life is not happening to me, i get to choose.
