I cannot quite believe that we are already to November. This year feels like a blur. I’ve been thinking the last couple of weeks about our Christmas cards and the blurb about our year that will accompany them, and I’m drawing a blank on what to include in them. I know we’ve done things, but I can’t remember. I can’t even think of a good picture of us to include with the card this year.
At the beginning of each month, I like to set intentions. I like to get clear with myself and the universe what I’d like to accomplish in the month, what I’d like to have happen. To me, at least, the major intention for the month is clear: slow down, make memories.
That is incredibly difficult for a couple if reasons, the first and most obvious being that Sweet Husband and I are separated during the week. The other neon-like reason is that November begins the holiday season. Travel and preparations and everything that goes along with the holidays make it incredibly difficult to step back and breathe.
But it is my intention that I do just that this month.
I’ve been at this job now for 5 weeks. I’m in the swing. I think. It doesn’t need to consume me. It’s time for me to truly establish the habits that are all about caring for myself and my relationships, which admittedly I’ve been neglecting on many counts.
That leads to the other intentions for the month.
I intend to write. A lot. With purpose and planning.
As we head into the busy holiday season, what are your intentions for the next 30 days?
