Intentions for the Week

Looking to get your head in the game? Tracy from Shutterbean makes a weekly TO DO LIST called her Intentions for the Week. Here's what this week looks like:

Hello, Monday.

We’re at it again.

This weekend I did quite a few organizing projects. I evaluated my workspace. We went into the city. I bought some plants. We celebrated our 12th anniversary with sushi. Hopefully, we gained some energy for this coming week because it’s going to be a busy one.

I also spent some time looking through old journals and finding little notes I left myself.
Since my Mom died, I haven’t felt like keeping a journal. I’ve fallen off track with bullet journaling. My biggest intention this week is to stay on top of my calendar and lists. Anytime I deviate from this, my life gets messy and I can’t keep up.

I can’t just wing it. I need to engage.

Here’s my spread for the week:
