With every new month, I want to make more of an effort to set intentions. Similar to New Year's resolutions, but less of a commitment - one's that are more reasonable, more easily obtainable.
So. November, equals Autumn; the day's are getting crisper, and the night's are getting colder. My schedule at work has changed to 6:45am to about 3:15pm, per my choice, and boy is it getting harder to wake up with motivation when the sun doesn't rise until I've already been in the office for an hour. The perks: out early = gym early = home early = bed early!
Last month, I accepted a new position in my office, and while I don't feel stressed with my full time job, I am noticing more and more that my relationship with time is not the greatest. Two days ago I was chatting with a co-worker and found myself saying, "Ya know, time really flys by here. . like, before this full time gig, I really didn't pay attention to time, but here- I mean one day it's Monday, and the next it's Friday! Or worse, one second it's 2:30pm, and the next it's 10pm, and then it's 5am the next day and we're back here again!"
This November, I want to set the intention to BREATHE. To really not just evolve in my life, but be present. To feel present.
I created a list this week of my intentions for November, and whenever I feel like I need a reminder, I can look back - and breathe of course, while doing so. I'm not making any promises here, and I won't beat myself up if I'm not able to accomplish the following, but at least I have put my intentions out there. I am #manifesting what I want. It is now up to me to figure out what #actions I need to take.
1. Be lighthearted in the face of stress and change
2. Be mindful of indulgences and comforts in excess
3. Be compassionate towards others and avoid giving advice
4. Be flexible and ready for anything; bend; grow with the flow
5. Take time and pause
7. Focus on breathing for 5 minutes a day
8. Hydrate to fuel the body
9. Be grateful ~ reflect: for what? for whom?
10. Keep it simple
NEW MONTH . NEW MINDSET . NEW FOCUS . NEW RESULTS
