Intentions for 2020

Intentions for 2020

Trust intuition
Seek simplicity, refine & reinvent
The earth is my body, both are sacred
Live life with purpose, focus on the essential
Do all things with heart
How do I inspire others?

This year I decided to treat myself to a planner by Magic of I that I have had my eye on for a couple of years now, thanks to a friend.  I can honestly say that my first impression is leaving me with more than good juju for the start to the year. I have always wanted to be more connected to the moon, my cycles and just the natural rhythms of this planet and the universe.  So with that I believe I'm in for an exciting start to the new year.

Setting goals, has always been something I’ve tried to do each and every year, I write them down, then lose my paper and all forms of accountability that I would have been able to keep up with for myself.  So this works perfect. I started brainstorming with my sweet hubby, since not only am I an individual, but a wife and now a mother making me a part of a family unit...with that in mind there’s not only goals for me, but for us as a couple and a family.

Setting intentions for the year 2020.  Man, when I say that sentence it scares the shit out of me.  That's a huge mission to set myself goals and hopes, dreams and aspirations, affirmations and all that.  It’s a big topic to cover and definitely overwhelms me. So Thanks to my new planner (which is now available in our boutique) I have been able to break it down.

  1. Spiritual
  2. Mental
  3. Work
  4. Money
  5. Social
  6. Love
  7. Physical
  8. Inspiration

Those are the topics to dive deeper into so let’s go step by step and I will share my intentions for the year of 2020 ~ a new decade!  Under each header I have created a list of goals and intentions that I wish to achieve for the year. I follow those bullets with my actionable steps that I will be taking to actively accomplish these goals.

Spiritual ~ Personal Growth/Expansion/Soul/Being

  • Meditation

Use Headspace App for a daily routine & morning meditation.  Begin with 5 minutes DAILY and work my way up to 15 minutes.

The last little thing I want to create for myself is a comparison of who I am now to who I will be.  Thanks to Lavendaire I have been inspired to create a little drawing of myself with notes on who I have been for the year of 2019 and who I am going to be this time next year in 2020.  I challenge you to create one for yourself, I found this amazingly helpful to set intentions of who I know I want to grow into over the next year :) Here's mine...

 

With that, I hope you all can have as much of a deeper understanding about who I am, as I have been able to develop this deeper understanding of myself as well.  Its been wonderful taking the time at the end of 2019 to reflect and look back, but also to aspire to be great for the year of 2020.  This project in itself is a yearly routine that I will forever and always incorporate into my life. It can only make things better for your year to come, set you up on the right path and bring you a year of bountiful divine bliss :)

Good luck for the year ahead. Let these messages on paper manifest into the Universe and all it’s energy. Remember to positively think of these messages, dreams, aspirations etc too when able. Your mind is a powerful tool.

I especially love how you spoke openly about exploring intimacy with your husband. So important to not be a secret thing, just sacred.

Watching from NZ. Thanks for being you. So very inspiring XX

I am so in awe of you both and how you are so focused on what you want. It is refreshing to follow a couple who wants to plan out their future and stick to goals whilst not making those goals strictly material. You have such a great equal and loving relationship and are wonderful parents to your adorable Azalea. You inspire me to want to chuck out the old and start anew in a much simpler and conscious manner. Focus more on what truly matters. You truly are an inspiration. I recently moved from NC to the Northern California wine country. If your travels bring you this direction, I would consider it an honor to meet you. Best wishes, thoughts and prayers that your goals are met and you all have the most blessed of years.
