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:

Happy Monday, friends!

 Sending love and light to Florida + Houston. You’re in my thoughts and prayers. Stay safe!

Last week was kind of a doozy. Casey was in Brazil for work so it was just Cooper and me at home. Still getting into the swing of school stuff. There have been so many events! We’re also starting fall baseball so our weekend was filled with that. The pace is picking up on the treadmill of life.

This week, I need to carve out some time to look at my calendar. There are a lot of things coming up and I need to ground myself and plan. I’ve been putting it off for too long and now it’s time to get a realistic view of it all. You know?  Here are my intentions for the week. I may not do them all but at least I’m figuring it out!

    My favorite post of the week!
    -Stay sane during a crazy week; deep breaths.
    -Plan out Instagram content for an account I run
    -Pick up the bridesmaid dress I didn’t pick up last week!

  • Rosemarie

    You make me look forward to Monday morning! Ever since we lost our ipad, I don’t get online much during the weekend so it is such a treat to see 2 awesome posts in a row on Monday morning. Thank you!

    – Try to run/walk in the morning as my afternoons this week are packed with meetings
    – Find a good coffee place for my day date with my husband on Friday
    – Organize the kids summer/fall clothes
    – Make your curry chicken recipe! Fingers crossed the kids will eat it
    – Call and update my name on my credit cards after changing my name at the beginning of summer. A year and a half after getting married. I’m on top of things.
    – Call the painter for an estimate

      Rosemarie! I just legally changed my name this summer. ELEVEN YEARS. I’m going through the process now too. It SUCKS!!! But if we can do this, we can do anything! xo

    I love the Weekly Intention posts!

  • Christa

    Hi Tracy! Love these and am going to jump back in:

    – return/pick up library books (todaaayyyyy because I have nothing to read)
    – trip to Target
    – go to gym twice
    – stretch every day (why is this so hard to work in??? It’s not hard, and I’m actually going to do it)
    – clean/straighten up house for mom’s visit this weekend for my bridal shower!!
    – stop killing my succulents…

    Hope you have a good week 🙂

    • Tracy

      i always want to add stretching into my life!!! maybe we can schedule it? like set reminders on our photos for a 1 minute stretch break throughout the day.

  • chris

    can’t wait to hear about the yonanas.
    My intentions this week are to survive and not drink too much diet coke. looow expectations.

  • Sina

    My intentions for the week:

    – I also need a date with my calendar -school has started and I really need to figure some things out, new class schedules for two memebers of the family always make me confused; I keep having the unpleasant feeling that I am forgetting something or am being late…
    – plan next work projects
    – finally mangle huge table cloths – have been putting this off
    – shoulder and back exercise every day
    – sleep and drink more
    – laundry, meal planning and grocery shopping as usual

    Have a good week!

  • megan

    you are always an inspiration and a “kick in my pants” to help get me organized. we have 4 kids…so that means LOTS of hours in the stands through the years (oldest is 23). I would highly recommend the STADIUM CHAIR…amazon sells them:

    have you started to sell those cool color wheel books you created on etsy yet???? they looked therapeutic!!!!

    have a great week!
