Try it 2018- Living with Intention

Hey Empowered Souls,

I cant’ tell you how many times I have said about a zillion things. I would really like to try that, go there, explore that.

And while it may not be an option for us to follow every one of those whims. We an choose one or a few that keep showing up for us. Let these be simple, doable and only ones that really keep tugging at you (and don’t take away from what goals and dreams you have decided to keep and accomplish this year) Some ideas that might spark some of your try it’s!

That place to eat that you keep saying you want to try (yet you keep going to your same ol beloved places!)

Yoga (you don’t have to sign up for an entire series just go to one class, try that one video)

Playing with paint (seriously get inexpensive supplies and just play, don’t put the expectation of masterpiece or nothing. Just try it, explore an afternoon, an hour, 15 minutes)

The new look (make up, accessories, whatever) who says you have to even go anywhere. Rock it around your house, try it!

Meditation (tip: I LOVE the app called insight timer it’s free and full of so many varieties for meditation)

That recipe

The list could go on an on!

What do you want to try? (remember keep it simple!)

Finish that 2018 – Living with Intention

Hey Inspiring Souls,

Most of us have some (or a lot) of things that are undone, that are not finished. That we started this year or last or… but have been avoiding the finishing/completion of it.

Not all those things for all of us will be possible (or even desired) to be finished this year. However you can choose one or two things.

Intention Prompt:

Create a list of things that are undone, not finished, lingering and tugging at the back of your mind all the time.  Choose 1 or 2 and finish it/them. 

Maybe it’s a phone call

Financial thing you need to put in place, take care of or complete.

Health appointment you keep avoiding.

A household project you started but haven’t finished.

A personal project , course, book that you started but you stepped away from yet it keeps lingering in your mind.

Finishing it can mean completing it or it can also mean being done with it. Deciding that where things are with it is good enough and you are mindfully saying I am finished with this!

Re-evaluate your 2018 goals- Living with Intention

Hey Lovely Souls,

I am doing a series of prompts over the next few weeks for leaning into the rest of 2018 with intention.

Intention Prompt:

Re-evaluate your goals for 2018. When the year starts we often have this idealistic view of all we can and want to do, we get inspired by others lists and we start adding to ours. There is nothing wrong with getting inspired by others and even adding things to your list. But when I am suggesting here is that you think of those as an inspiration list of things that might be awesome to do, learn, create or accomplish.  And then to look at your lists of dreams/goals/resolutions for this year. What hasn’t happened yet? What do you really truly want to still dive into from this list.

Choose the ones that are really important to you and are tugging at you. Allow the rest just to be put aside or put on the inspiration list of things that could be awesome this or next year or…

This is the perfect time to re-evaluate what really matters to you to accomplish or start, create, explore this year. Then you know what your energy needs to go towards.

Permission Slip- Weekend Empowerment Challenge

Beautiful Souls,

Often we are looking for others to give us the go ahead, green light  permission. So often though the permission for the things we crave most must come from within ourselves.

This weekends empowerment challenge is:

Create a permission slip for yourself. It can be for whatever is tugging at you.

Rest

Play

To speak your mind

To ask for what you want/need

To do nothing

To just start that project that you can’t stop thinking about.

To stop (reading that book, committing to that thing that totally drains you because it’s filled with the energy of shoulds)

What do you need to give yourself permission for?

Choose your reads for the rest of 2018- Intention Prompt

Hey Beautiful Souls,

Ready or not we are in the last 4 months of 2018 instead of dealing with it like a deer in the head lights, let’s dive into it with intention. I will be sharing several posts over the next few weeks about diving into the rest of the year and going forward with intention!

If you are anything like me you have way more books than time to read them and you started the year with big intentions of reading a lot more than you have so far.

Intention Prompt: 

Choose the books you want to read for the rest of the year. (because sometimes all the choices lead to analysis paralysis and thus no reading)

What’s on your reading list for the rest of 2018?!

Go to prompts when you don’t know what to write

Hey Beautiful Souls,

If you have ever read my blog before you  know how I feel about journaling! If not, I will tell you now. I love it, it’s the tool that has helped support me in so many ways. It’s such a forgiving and inexpensive practice (unless you have a journal buying problem, that I may or may not have lol)

Even the  most “seasoned” journalers can sometimes feel stuck when it comes to showing up to the blank page.

Here are some go to prompts:

  1. Right now (I feel, Need)
  2. Truth
  3. Currently, life looks like…
  4. More of/ less of list
  5. Where I am currently putting my energy and attention.
  6. Lately I am noticing

Several of these would be awesome done for a week solid or month. They also stand on their own just fine!

Grab your journal and go for it!

Create Intentions and Inspirations for September

Hey Lovely Souls,

How is it September already? Seriously I feel like we just rang in the new year! One of the things I try to do each month is to create a list of intentions, goals and inspirations for the new month.

Here are some prompts to ask yourself for this month to help support you setting your intentions:

  • What do I want to accomplish this month
  • What do I want to savor this month?
  • What do I want to create this month?
  • What do I want to explore this month?

Inspirations: Ideas and things to explore.

  • Go to a farmers market or local festival
  • Choose the books you want to read for the fall
  • Create a playlist
  • Create an inspiration board
  • Start a new journal
  • Create a challenge for yourself (photo, meditation, yoga, reading)
  • Learn something new
  • Finish something you started that you have been wanting to do or avoiding!

What’s on your list for this  month?
