Stronger Than Before – 45


Weekly Intention: This week looks reasonably ordinary so I want to take advantage of that and do some exercise especially because I’m traveling the following week. While in Zurich, I hope to do both cardio and some pilates/yoga/weights so I think getting into the groove this week will help. I want to keep the week as low key as possible. i will hug my kids, i will rest when i am not working, i will read and sleep. maybe i can journal if i feel i am at a place to do it. but i am keeping the bar low this week.

This month’s intention is: Stronger Together: Time to enjoy the company of others. Go out and socialize. Appreciate the community you have. Spend time with your family. Bask in the joy of friendships+community+family. What’s one thing you can do to appreciate your people? Hmm this is interesting, especially both for how i am feeling lately (don’t want to socialize at all) and what i want to do next year for my word (will involve a lot more socializing.) I’m going to have to think about this one.

One way I will stretch this week: i am going to tell myself to slow down.

One boundary I will set this week:  time with my kids. time with jake.

This week, I will focus on pleasing: the future karen. i will spend some time thinking about 2019.

One new thing I will learn this week: more physics probably 🙂

One area where I will go deeper this week: i will think about some of the shifts i want to make in my life for 2019. my thinking, my routines, my appearance :).

What do I need to sit with this week? how to understand what makes me come alive

I am looking forward to: my trip, it’s been a while since I was in Zurich

This week’s challenges: no glaring challenges this week, thankfully.

Top Goals: 

  • Work:  december summit, thinking about what’s next, documenting my thoughts.
  • Personal: exercise. and 2019 plans that’s all we’re going to put down this week!
  • Family: just spend a lot of time with my people, saying good things to all of them

I will focus on my values:

  • Love: i want to speak more kindly. i am going to repeat this one. 
  • Learn:  learn what i want.
  • Peace: peace with not having the answers.
  • Service: to sitting with things.
  • Gratitude: for my kids, and my husband. i am so lucky.

This week, I want to remember: that the days are long but the years are short and i want to use mine well.

Stronger Than Before is a year-long project for 2018. You can read more about my projects for 2018 here.
