Weekly Reflection 2019 – 01

Magic I Saw this Week:  This week started with the magic of spending New Year’s eve with my whole family. The first time in 26 years. It was quite magical. Later in the week, everyone flew to their homes and we settled in to a magical quiet. On Thursday, both my boys were happy to go back to school this week even though they weren’t looking forward to it. They came back smiling and happy. 

Magic I Made this Week: Jake and I started doing Yoga together. We start our mornings with Adriene doing her Dedicate series. It’s been really magical getting to do it with my wonderful husband. I’ve also done some art and a lot of journaling this week which was magical.

Magic of Me that I explored Week: As part of my homework for create.2019 I’ve listed all the wonderful moments in 2018 and in my life. It was quite the joyful and eye opening experience. 

Top Goals Review:  none for this week!

I celebrate: doing some art finally after a long, long break.

I am grateful for: this long and wonderful time off i’ve had from work, getting to connect with my family and grounding myself

This week, I exercised: I’ve done yoga every morning and I’ve also done 10 pushups a day minimum each day.

Self-care this week: I’ve done a lot of journaling this week and I’ve been resting a lot. I feel pretty grounded. 

I showed up for:  my son in helping him prepare for his high school application.

I said yes to:  spending time with my friend even though it was raining and I didn’t want to leave the house. I rarely want to leave the house 🙂

I said no to:  going to a high school event for David next week. I don’t need to be there and there’s really no reason to add stress this week.

Core Desired Feelings Check-in:

  • Embrace: i am embracing the fact that all my art muscles have atrophied and i have to start over.
  • Alive: the pushups are actually helping me feel alive.
  • Lighter: i feel lighter after I journal each day, i wish i could remember this more often.
  • Kinder: i am trying to be kinder to my kids, remembering to hug more and hold them tighter.
  • Surrender: i need to surrender to the feelings of anxiety around this quiet time ending. it’s going to be okay.

What I tolerated this week: my knee’s been hurting more than I’d like and I am hoping it will get better with regular exercise.

My mood this week was: Lethargic but peaceful.

I am proud of: How I started the year. Optimistic.

I forgive myself for: Not being as generous with my time as others might want me to be. I am honoring my boundaries.

Here’s what I learned this week: i said yes to keeping track of my books on good reads when gypsy asked me to even though i’d been asked before and didn’t feel like it. it turned out to be a blessing. i love tracking them there and taking the time to document my thoughts more deeply. we’ll see if i can keep it up but for now, i am really grateful. thank you gypsy.

What I love right now:  we’ve been putting on youtube videos of crackling fire on our tv and having that on in the background. I love love love it.

    Oh, I’m really pleased! I hope that it keeps working for you- and that you can easily let it go if it doesn’t. 🙂 I’m totally grateful for your reminder about the monthly intentions… it feels like it was a key for me to unlock a bunch of thinking and future planning. I’m feeling super optimistic about this year also. Thank you so much for your part in that!
