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!

How are you feeling?  I’m ready to get into this week. It’s a busy one!

This weekend there was a sleepover, movie & dinner, baseball, got our Halloween costumes, got ourselves organized,  did a bunch of recipe testing, laundry and cleaned out closets. A lot of little stuff adds up to big stuff.  The little stuff helps support all the moving parts to each week. Don’t forget that when you feel like you haven’t accomplished EVERYTHING.

We have a wedding to look forward to this week and Halloween coming up. Soon we’ll be in Thanksgiving mode (still figuring out our holiday this year) and then we’re onto Christmas season. Time is breezing right by, isn’t it?

Here I am, holding myself accountable to my TO DO LIST. Here are my Intentions for the Week!

    Tracy – how do you stay on top of your to do list for the week? Do you just keep the list in your bullet journal and refer to it every day?

    “A lot of little stuff adds up to big stuff. The little stuff helps support all the moving parts to each week.” – Thanks for this reminder! In a week where my energy is low and I’m having to be more reasonable in what I try to check off my to-do list, this was helpful to consider. Even little things matter.

    Hi Tracy…do you have a good system for filing? Important papers, tax stuff, etc
