<< New to the Blog - My Journey with Tea >>
January 05, 2020
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.
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.
Use Headspace App for a daily routine & morning meditation. Begin with 5 minutes DAILY and work my way up to 15 minutes.
Take deep breaths and be mindful of precious moments when they are there. Be less on my phone/laptop ~ enjoy life and savor my surroundings. Mental Kodak moments!
During Azalea’s nap, take a moment to journal an entire page in my small notebook. Anything ~ feelings, thoughts, hopes, dreams, etc.
6am Wake up, Splash water on face, brush teeth, drink 16 oz water, meditate, light stretch, or full on yoga flow if Azalea allows (on days not going to the gym), breath work, breakfast
Turn phone off at 9pm, brush teeth, floss, mouthwash, wash face with soap, healing mist spritz, read book 30-45 minutes, sleep 10pm/10:30pm
Mindful eating, less time on phone/social media, no phone in the morning/evening, movement daily
Attend breath work classes & practice during daily meditations
Find books monthly to read in the evenings (already purchased first book of the year: Body into Balance ~ very excited to dive into this book to seek out deeper inner healing)
Learn more on herbalism by reading & growing apothecary line for Moon.Flower.Child ~ Self care is Gratitude
Practice zero waste leading up to full month challenge in October = 100% plastic/package free (document on YouTube)
Research more on what I want to learn more about ~ register, attend & document on a blog posts for M.F.C. (Zero waste, Spirit Weavers Gathering)
Skill share class & gain experience during collaborations
Short term one month rental of boutique space on the west coast for the holiday season. Host party & blow out sales ~ networking & opportunity for vendors to consign their product in the boutique :) and a place where my Moon.Children can connect, play music, read poetry & connect ~ Create a community face to face!
(New earrings coming in 2020)
Red Peppa Productions
Grow sales for M.F.C. and continue creating valuable content on YouTube. Eventually income will be substantial enough to be more consistent at a comfortable minimum threshold
Set aside $800 a month ($10k by the end of the year)
Set up automatic payments and increase monthly savings to $100/month
Run numbers at supermarket when shopping, be more aware of spending on play and adventures whilst traveling ~ Stick to budget ~ no excuses unless its an emergency!
Fly or Drive to the event ~ Attend with Azlea ~ book ticket in February (bday present for Juby?)
Library reading friends ~ more play dates for Azalea. Attend Facebook group events ~ grow network on Instagram for mothers :)
Schedule meetups & connect more with the people we meet on the road ~ travel in tandem
Register for 2 events
Find a babysitter to take care of Azalea once a month for a date
Sex is Equality ~ Deeper understanding of the human body and how we can love each other better
Weekly care for self Love ~ body care ~ massage/waxing monthly
Connect daily with a friend/family member ~ let them know I care (FB/Insta/Text/Call anything)
Incorporate yoga into my morning routine if not going to the gym, otherwise spend time in the gym doing cardio & weights ~ stretch
Find studios that offer ecstatic dance and gain more confidence to move freely
Plan weekly juicing into our supermarket runs and expand juice recipe ideas. Learn more on fasting and incorporate daily/intermittent fasting into each month
Foot soaks, face masks, hand massages, epilating & waxing, eyebrow maintenance
Monthly rock climbing session ~ research outdoor locations near our parking spots with the bus
Rent a paddle board ~ Go! Explore to see if its worth purchasing my own
Lift at the gym at least 3 times a week ~ legs/core/arms ~ Muscle lines :)
Less bread & more wholesome grain based buddha bowls. More superfoods & raw fruit & veg
Frozen spinach, create new recipes
Book tickets in January/February for Bali & set dates for winter in Baha California with Red Peppa

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.
