Stronger Than Before – 39


Weekly Intention: Ok this is going to be an intense week of work and then I expect to be working late into the night much of the week and then on Friday I will be driving to Tahoe for the weekend for a school event I purchased last year. David will be camping the middle of the week. So we got a lot going on. And when we come back from Tahoe I will enter a very very tough week. So my intention this week is a few things: be the kindest I can be, I know that when I am tired I can be snappy or even less compassionate towards me and others. So I will work on this. Kind to everyone. Secondly, I want to be able to protect my sleep and exercise because i will get very little sleep the following week and possibly no exercise. And finally, i want to try to savor the moments as much as i can. these are all incredible opportunities for me to be a part of and I am super lucky. So I don’t want to take that for granted.

This month’s intention is: Love Strong: This month is hard. There are transitions, new schedules and more. Use this month to think about what it would look like to love more. Love yourself more: more self-care and kindness. What boundaries can help you? Love Jake more: what’s something you can do for the two of you? Love your kids more: How can you help them with the transition? well there you go, this week i will focus on kindness and seeing everyone’s perspective, finding a way to love everyone.

One way I will stretch this week:  i will see if i can cook a bit and preserve my exercise routine, let’s see. 

One boundary I will set this week: sleep i think that’s the one I need the most.

This week, I will focus on pleasing: hmmm. i think everyone a little bit. would that work? at least give everyone my full attention while i am with them.

One new thing I will learn this week: how to iterate more effectively

One area where I will go deeper this week: how to understand perspectives different than mine

What do I need to sit with this week? how to go the distance here. i have a lot of other deadlines after this october one.

I am looking forward to: our tahoe adventure even if it comes at a bad time. 

This week’s challenges: sleep. peace.

Top Goals: 

  • Work:  october is going to have to be it this week.
  • Personal: i’m just going to do the best i can this week.
  • Family: just be as present as i can in tahoe 

I will focus on my values:

  • Love: love and care and grace for everyone on my path this week.
  • Learn:  how to listen more, better.
  • Peace: peace with this week.
  • Service: to my organization, to my family.
  • Gratitude: for things coming together, even if last minute.

This week, I want to remember: that it always works out
