Every monday, I share my intention for the week and welcome you to do the same.
This is not about setting goals or creating to-do lists and working our tails off to achieve them. This is about taking some time to be quiet and still and ask “What do I need this week?” and setting an intention from there to align yourself with that. It’s about paving the way for success, joy and dreams come true to find you throughout the week.
Last week’s I had a clear intention and boy did I clear! I cleared out my 2 fullest closets and gave away a trunkfull of stuff… then started re-filling the truck as I keep going, clearing out the rest of the house. And not just clearing space but re-arranging space and creating spaces that will really serve me.
Like a more spacious office area in my art room. A better organised sewing area. A bedroom with more calm, open space. And getting rid of all of the things that just aren’t needed as I open this new chapter in my life.
Opening up space for possibility, creativity and opportunity to flow in.
And this week I want to build on that… move into clearing out and opening up space in my schedule and routines. Building routines, structures and systems that nurture me and my creative energy. Actually, my plan is to spend all month working on different aspects of this.
Without routines, systems and structures I tend to get lost and overwhelmed. All of the routines, systems and structures I had fit around me having a part time job and now it’s time to review them, throw out what isn’t going to fit now, and bring in some new stuff.
That’s a pretty huge job, so I am working on one aspect of it each week and then I’ll see where I am at the end of the month.
Clearing out my physical space was a good place to start. And now it’s time to move on to: grocery shopping and cooking. My aim here is to plan ahead and only grocery shop once a week. AND do meal prep once a week so when it comes time to eat – I just assemble and heat. HUGE shift for me and I am really excited about. It feels like so much time and energy will be freed up when I am no longer asking myself “What am I going to have for lunch?” and no longer going grocery shopping several times a week.
So my intention this week: nourish.
