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!

This is your friendly reminder to slow down if you can. Take your time with things. Don’t rush! I was rushing around my house yesterday and ended up breaking my pinky toe (I think!). Be present and don’t hurry. That’s when mistakes happen.  Everyone is rushing around and stress is at an all-time high.

Questions for you this week:

  • What can you do to make things easier for yourself?
  • How can you ask for help?

Feeling lost? Start with an Intentions for the Week list. Here’s mine!

    So sorry you are hurt! Please be well and take care of yourself!

    And you’re right, rush is everywhere – last week in a hurry, my son tripped and two of his teeth got broken, it’s unbelievable. Humans are just so fragile, usually we don’t notice how well everything works and how incredibly unharmed we all are most of the time.

    So, my intentions for this week include
    – mailing christmas cards and packages
    – figuring out last minute holiday baking
    – letting go of things and projects I cannot manage before holidays
    – the usual: meal planning, grocery shopping, laundry, cleaning our home
    – taking time to play guitar and read christmas stories with kids

    Thank you Tracy for the good reminders and for modeling such awesome accountability and intention setting.
    That just sucks about your toe…!
    I hope it feels better soon. When I busted my pinky toe I cut a hole in an old shoe so I could be comfy wearing footwear if that’s a helpful diy.
    Happy holidays to you & your family

    Love this, will be setting intentions for 2019!!!
