Choosing Joy – August

And here we are. It’s August. I re-start work, the kids will go back to school, eighth and twelfth grades. We have a lot going on this month. And I am feeling centered and grounded and I feel open to possibility. Let’s see how things unfold.

This months intention is:  Big Joys: Time to get organized again, transitions are coming. twelfth and eight grades. These are big big milestones. Hug your kids.  Get organized, plan, prepare and do what you need to do. Write down all your dreams. Make plans. 

My goal for August is to love and support my people. To do what they need as much and as often as I can. I want to stay open and spacious and positive.

Here are some goals for August:

  • continue to draw, sketch, paint or do some artistic endeavor as often as I can
  • try to eat fresh food
  • do most of of HCOTF
  • support N with his trip and then with transitioning to school
  • support D with essays + driving and transitioning to school
  • Journal daily
  • Read a lot
  • Support J with his surgery and appointments and this potentially new path forward
  • continue medication
  • Continue documenting the joy
  • Love my people
  • Scrap and OLW
  • Go outdoors, sit outside, be in the sunshine
  • dive deeper into ease, release, equanimity, space, possibility and see what you might want to do for each. ( still haven’t done this but maybe I should give up?)
  • remember that it’s all bonus
  • take it slow and one day at a time at work and be patient with yourself. Listen. Don’t jump in.
  • be in the present moment, don’t count down the days
  • help D figure out his plans
  • Help K if she needs it

This is my list for now.

August, here we go. Let’s do this. Let it be full of joy.
