In September I was inspired by my friend Gina and how she sets monthly intentions. Since then, I’ve enjoyed doing the same and find it to be incredibly helpful- and fun! If you’re new to this series, here’s the 411: each month I’m going to be sharing the intentions I have for the next few weeks and a recap of the previous month.

My Why:

I struggled with setting these and I think this new monthly practice is just what I need to remember life can be more spontaneous and fun. It doesn’t have to be all work and injury rehabilitation for me. I often get into routines and rhythms and have a hard time adjusting to anything other than what I have set. This is a great way for me to practice healthy and responsible spontaneity!


this month’s intentions:

  1. Go to a specialty yoga class

  2. Purchase a yoga membership at a new studio

  3. Create a vision board and hang it up

  4. wake up early at least 1 day a week and go for a walk before i start my work day

  5. Start meditating

  6. Be more patient with myself

Guide Questions:

  1. What Activities make you happy?

    Watching the Hallmark channel, writing, listening to music, spending time with friends.

  2. What Matters Most To You?

    Same as the last two month- growth, and making time for the people I love and having them know that they mean something to me- that they’re important and I want them in my life. The Propel Women’s Chapter I am involved with, also matters to me.

  3. What is no longer serving you?

    Inconsistent and unreliable people.

  4. What are you grateful for?

    Always having the opportunity to start over any time I want. Thankfully I live in a country where my thoughts, actions, words, etc. are my own and not forced upon me. I have the ability to restructure my days, weeks, and life overall when I want to. If something isn’t serving me, I can actually change it and have it reflect what it is I want and need. I’m grateful for opportunities to serve others and make a difference in the world. I’m grateful there are people who take the time to improve things and help others.

  5. What is a word, quote or mantra that resonates with you right now?

    My “Jammin With Jesus Playlist” and the piece I wrote about moving into a new season of life and letting go of things and people.

Read: “Step Into The Daylight + Let It Go.”

In the waiting
The same God who’s never late
Is working all things out

Gina’s intention worksheet

I love the worksheet Gina created as a starting point/ guide. I used this to ask myself a few tough questions and I’m including my answers below to document how I evolve over the course of the month/ year of doing this. I encourage you to jot them down in a journal, comment them on this post or save and print her worksheet out, too! What I’ve found is in the midst of growth, we may appear stuck or have blinders on with ourselves, but a year from now, when we look back, we see just how much we have changed. I always love being able to re-read where I once was and use it as a reminder of how I have grown and what I have learned.
