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.

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!

Get it done (or at least started!)- Weekend Empowerment Challenge

Hey Lovely Souls!

If you are anything like me, you have some (or a lot!) of stuff that sort of lingers in the space of it needs to be done or I really want to do it and I don’t have the time, space, energy, money etc…

We forget that we have to make it ourselves! I have a list of things that are undone, that linger and tug at me, yet I have not made the time to just get them done or at least started.

That’s my challenge to you this weekend. Start or complete something that has been bugging you, something you have put off. Ok technically the intention for these was to complete something each weekend. But if it’s just not feasible for this prompt then that’s ok the intention is to start to shift the energy around that project, task etc..

It’s likely as soon as you see this post something will come to mind. If it doesn’t however, I have some ideas to spark your list.

Take that donation stuff and drop it off, get the haircut (that’s mine this weekend!), Make that call, try that recipe, get the lab work done or scheduled,  write that post, work on that class, choose the date, print the photos, start the memory keeping project (perfectly imperfect!)

Are you in? What’s your get it done or start it this weekend?

Here is to living your days with intention,

10 in 10 – Holistic Living

Hey Lovely Souls!

We can explore and accomplish (or start) more in 10 minutes than we usually realize.

So often we think that we need to have big blocks of time to get healthier, read more, explore our creativity, declutter. etc…

While big blocks of time are awesome,  they are not always easy to come by (or shall I say to carve out the time for) However, most any of us can carve out 10 minutes (and likely many times throughout the day).

Here are some things you can do in 10 minutes to support yourself in living holistically.

  1. Meditate for 10 minutes (or 5 in am, 5 in afternoon/evening)
  2. Spread paint in  your journal or on a canvas  (or glue images, add some stitches etc.)
  3. Journal, braindump, make lists.
  4. Be still, no looking at the phone. Just allow yourself to be for just 10 minutes.
  5. Move your body, walk around your house, neighborhood, do yoga, dance. Move your body! (if you are currently getting no movement and you can squeeze in 10 several times a week, isn’t that better than nothing?!)
  6. Plan meals for your week, make a menu
  7. Set up your supplements for the week.
  8. Read something inspiring  (book, blog, magazine)
  9. Do a blitz (this can be done in as little as 5) Maybe it’s doing a quick pick up in your living room, desktop (digital or physical!) unloading the dishwasher, wipe down of the bathroom or kitchen, shifting things around your space, putting stuff away. Set a timer and go for it. Don’t overthink it, just start on the space that’s bugging you the most or that you would be able to see the most progress in for that amount of time.
  10. Call and make the appt, check your balance etc. set up reminders on your phone or in/on your planner.

Life IS a special occasion- Weekend Empowerment Challenge

Weekend empowerment challenge

Hey Beautiful Souls,

Welcome to the weekend Empowerment Challenge! This weekends challenge is to:

Use something that you have been saving for a special occasion. Life IS that special occasion. Many of us tend to hang onto so many things that we are saving for that “special” occasion.

Your life is a special occasion. The things you have made it through, created, learned this year are things to celebrate!

Maybe for you it’s those fancy dishes, outfit or accessory that is just for “dressing up”, the journal you want to have the perfect words or images to put in.

My challenge to  you is to use something even a little tiny something this weekend. If that thing you have is something you really can’t use right now, my challenge to you is to plan something where you can use it (plan it this weekend!)

Remember , this is for you, so it does not matter if you are “overdressed” to go to the diner or to run your usual weekend errands, it doesn’t matter if the meal on those dishes is for 1. Choose something and just go for it!
