My Unpopular November Intentions
November is HERE. Do you know what that means? 60 days. That’s all we have left until the New Year. Remember those New Year Resolutions? It’s almost time to do them again. How’s that for a dose of reality?
Before I get too ahead of myself, let’s focus on the now. Which happens to be November intentions. My intentions for month might have to do with the minor freak out I had above. They are simple. In fact, real simple.
No, I don’t mean do less. I literally mean….MORE.
Yeah, I know. It’s probably the unpopular opinion. How much of this year seems like it could have been better spent chasing your dreams, doing things you love or pushing yourself out of your comfort zone? I have so many aspirations. Ones that will only be fulfilled by pushing myself to take those steps.
Now, I don’t mean I’m going to work myself ragged but you know how people say “Last month was a doozy. This month my goal is to rest.”? Yeah, well last month I worked, probably harder than I have in awhile BUT when I think of pushing myself a little harder… this fire ignites.
Maybe it’s the competitive nature in me or the excitement I get from doing something I love…. whatever it is,
I’m going to run with it.
So what does that look like for me? I have no clue. Maybe later nights, earlier mornings or a combinations of both. Possibly a stricter schedule that ensures I am optimizing my time to it’s full potential. It could mean stepping out of my comfort zone and asking for help. Making contact with people I admire and taking steps to create real life friendships. It also could be none of the above. All I really know is that I
I want to live. I want to do. I want to feel.
All that can only come with a little hard work.
Today I plan on writing out my intentions, the household needs, my work goals and most importantly… my needs. I’m going to take all of it into account and write out a schedule. I use to be a big fan of time blocks. It was the only way that I could get anything done and quite honestly, I haven’t done it in quite some time. Baby steps friends! By the end of next week I’ll have a better feel on how I want to tackle this month.
You don’t have to have it all figured out to move towards your goals!
The beautiful thing about intentions is that don’t have a deadline. You don’t have to stop shooting for your goals once the month is up.
You can keep going, keep reaching and keep kicking ass.
