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!

Now that Cooper is back at school after Thanksgiving break, I am going to switch from entertaining/making holiday magic mode to full  HUSTLE MODE!

Are you feeling the holiday rush?  I am.

Ask yourself:

What can I do this week that will help me get ahead of schedule?

Write it down.



If you are rushing around, don’t forget to make sure you take some time to take care of yourself.

I know that it takes a lot of energy to make magic throughout the holidays.

Rest if you need to. Take a bath. Have yourself a turmeric latte,

Steer your loved one towards my favorite things from 2018 guide for self-care inspiration.

Maybe it’s about working smarter, not harder.  Can you ask for help this week? What can you ask for?

Maybe you have friends who also want to save money this holiday season AND HANG OUT?

Host your own homemade holiday gift party.  

You can get a lot done when you enlist help.

It all starts with a TO -DO list. Here are my Intentions for the Week:
