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 Friends! Happy Monday to you. This week is the first week in awhile that I have to focus on getting my household/life/work back in order. I have so many paper piles all over the house and my office looks like a tornado hit it. Ye olde laundry pile is getting outta control as well. It’s all proof that LIFE CARRIES ON even when you’re not fully there. I’m hoping that someday I’ll be fully there but my brain is still processing all that has happened since Thanksgiving. Don’t worry, I’m working really hard on being good to myself and my family. Thank you so much for all your support since my mother died. We all really appreciate it 🙂 So let’s see what’s up with my Intentions for the week.

Intentions for the Week:

  • sweat it out at dance class
  • trip to the dump
  • trip to the thrift store
  • have coffee with friends
  • organize paper piles
  • work on pineapple rum post
  • clean up my office
  • make some dinners for my family
  • get back into making art
  • take the books back to the library– they’re so overdue!
  • take a picture for our holiday card/order it
  • get lost in a book
  • go for a long walk
  • go through Holiday Gift ideas and see what to make for teachers
  • cry when I feel like it
  • remember to take good care of myself
  • be present with Cooper. Give him as much love & uninterrupted time as possible.
  • figure out Christmas/presents/all that jazz

Mantra for the Week:

    After we lost my sister (in law- but really she was my sister for 10 years) i paid so many library fees…so many late books… i can relate to that bullet point.
    it also helped to just cry when we needed to without feeling guilty about it or like you shouldn’t. i have now cried in so many public places.. hah
    it seems like you are treating yourself and your family right.
    sending a lot of love into the universe for you 🙂

    I am so sorry for your loss. I apologize that I am delayed. My heart goes out to you and your family. I am rooting for you. We are rooting for you. I have been there. I am here. We are all here. The thing is that we mean it.

  • Katha

    Thank you for your mantra for the week.
    I instantly started to cry, when I read it.
    It’ so true.
    I’m going to print it out right now and hang it on my doorr. So I can read it, whenever I leave the house or walk by.
    Stay strong Tracey!
    You’re in my thoghts and prayers.
    Hugs and Kisses from Germany.

    I have always been a reader, but over the past few years I have really started to use reading to help me cope with anxiety. I just read and enjoyed A Wrinkle in Time in anticipation of the very intriguing-looking movie. If you haven’t read it yet, Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel is a great book to get lost in. I also very highly recommend The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern – it definitely transports you.

    Thinking of you and your family … <3

    I know nothing will feel routine or normal for a long time. I didn’t know your mom, but as a blog fan of yours, her passing has felt shocking to me. she was much too young. your hard work is always appreciated and I hope you find peaceful moments for yourself and your family this holiday season. hope you’re taking time for yourself and family, we love you always and will always be here <3
