Here we are – the last month of 2020. This is a good time to reflect on all that this year has brought us (both the good and the bad). It’s also a time to set intentions for the month and focus on the things we really want to work on. I like to set intentions because it’s a good time to reflect on the month and recognize things in my life that I want to focus and improve on. I hope you’ll join me this month in setting your own intentions so you can determine how you want to finish up the last month of the year.
My December 2020 intentions:
– Spend more time in the kitchen (my happy place)
– Focus on the mantra ‘Other people’s opinions of me is not my problem’ (you can’t please everyone)
– Be cognizantof using filler words and also saying ‘thank you’ instead of ‘sorry’ when appropriate
– Feel your feelings(it’s okay to havea bad day and it’s also okay to sit with those negative feelings)
Writing intentions for the month of November seems a bit scary because there’s so much unknown ahead. What I do know, is that one thing I am in control of is my actions and how I respond to situations. This month, my intentions are centered on protecting my peace. I hope you’ll join me in setting your own intentions for the month!
Here are my November intentions:
• Limit social media use
• Be more mindful of using the word ‘sorry’. Replace ‘I’m sorry’ with ‘thank you’ when appropriate.
• Do more cooking! Nourish my body with foods that make me feel good.
• Practice more patience
• Tap into creative skills to get my creative juices flowing
