Intention – Calm/Peace

It’s Monday again, and time to set an intention for the week.  Thanks Andrea!!

From ABC Creativity, Andrea’s creative and inspirational site.

Every Monday, I share my intention for the week and welcome you to do the same.


This is not about setting goals or creating to-do lists and working our tails off to achieve them. This is about taking some time to be quiet and still and ask “What do I need this week?” and setting an intention from there to align ourselves with that. It’s about paving the way for success, joy and dreams come true to find us throughout the week.
Last week, my intention was to “plan”–plan what to do with my extra time now that I had turned my cable TV off.  But…what I found was that I was unsettled as having a TV has been such an integral part of my life–almost addictive, which is the reason I wanted to turn it off.
But…it takes time to settle down and get used to the idea of not being with a TV, so this week, I’m actually going to give myself a break and just try to be calm and at peace with the quiet in my home before I try to fill it again.
I’m also going through a huge lifestyle shift with my eating habits changing to just “real” food (no bad fats, no sugar, no white flour, etc.–only fruit, veg, and “real” foods).  This is also a HUGE shift for me and I know it’s right for me.  But, just like the TV, it takes time to adjust to the change.
And peace and calm is exactly what my mind, body, and soul need this week while I’m in this transformative place in my life.
Thanks!!
