My intent for the week is to embrace the day. Embrace each day this week as it comes,, and meet it with the intent that it will be a good day.

It might twist into something else, but if I start with a positive intent, I have a better chance of having a positive day.

What’s your intent for the week?

Mon. July 26, 2021: Intent for the Week: Write

While I’ve been writing what I have to in order to keep the money coming in, food on the table, and a roof over our heads, I also want to take time this week to write just to write. With no plan, no deadline, just free write to get the words (and worlds, which is the typo I just corrected) flowing again, so that I can get back to the deadlined novels, plays, articles, and short stories.

But without the unpressured time to just play, it all feels like a chore, when it should be a delight. So I’m building in unpressured time to play with words this week.

Trying to keep it balanced with the paid work.

What is your intent for the week?

Next week, I also want to start doing the weekly “Artist Dates” again.

Mon. July 19, 2021: Intent for the Week — Purpose

This week, i’m going to concentrate on “purpose.”

The past few months, my entire reason for existence has centered around getting us moved — finding us a place within our budget where we can be happy and feel at least somewhat secure, getting the logistics of the move done.

Now that we are here, I need to find the purpose in my work again. In the writing. In creating new routines, rituals, and figuring out this next chapter. In the healing that has to take place.

My focus this week will be rredefinint what “purpose” means right now, and coming up with ways to fulfill it.

What are your plans for the week?

Mon. July 12, 2021: Intent for the Week — Start to Heal

Waxing Moon

Pluto, Saturn, Jupiter, Neptune Retrograde

Rainy and mild

A week ago today, I was doing my last runs to storage and frantically trying to clean the house, dumping way too many things I wanted to keep, but for which I didn’t have room. I was already shaking with exhaustion when I started the day at 4 AM.

My intent for this week is to start the healing process.

There’s a lot to heal: the physical and mental exhaustion of the move; along with how my desire for a life on the Cape was so far removed from the reality. That will all take time.

I’m frustrated that the exhaustion won’t let up. I suspect the anemia’s come roaring back, and might go back on iron supplements for a bit.

Unpacking goes slowly. It’s like a puzzle; not putting things “where they’ve always been” but putting them where they work best here. I do a bit, and then I have to work on a different area, because until that’s sorted, I can’t go any further in the other bit.

But I’m going to use the gentle Cancer new moon healing energy to do just that – heal.

I don’t know if I’ll keep doing weekly intentions on Monday, but this week, at least, it makes sense.

Mon. May 24, 2021: Overcome The Fear

I feel as though the sledgehammer is beating down on me. I have to overcome the paralyzing fear and do what needs to be done to resolve the housing crisis. I’m working on it every day, and feeling so overwhelmed, I don’t know what to do. Time is running out.

My intent for the week is to overcome the fear and find a solution.

This is what I feel like — I have a goal, but it feels far away, and I have to travel this road to reach it.

My intent is to have a positive journey to get there.

Mon. April 26, 2021: Intent for the Week — Searching for Hope

I’m feeling very discouraged right now, on multiple fronts, so the intent for the week is to search for (and find) hope.

Concentrate on each thing that needs doing and do it.

Search for hope that things will get better.

Mon. April 19, 2021: Intent for the Week — Steady On

This week, I need to stay steady.

I’m writing fiction again in the early mornings, which has made a huge difference to how I work and feel the rest of the day.

I’m house hunting intensely (again, if any of you have any leads, please get in touch).

I need to stay the course and get some movement going.

Mon. April 12, 2021: Intent for the Week — Heal, Pack, Hunt

I got my first Moderna dose on Saturday morning, and I’m still feeling its effects. I’m grateful to have gotten jabbed, but definitely need to be careful for another couple of days.

My intent this week is to heal, so I can get back on track with the packing, while continuing to hunt for a new place.

Mon. April 5, 2021: Intent for the Week — The Path

WordPress isn’t allowing me to add an image today — is this another of their “improvements”?

There — finally. WordPress is being cranky this morning, and I don’t have the time or the patience for it.

A rocky path into the mist — that’s exactly what it feels like. But I have to keep moving forward, because there is no other choice.

Mon. March 29, 2021: Intent for the Week — Intent

The intent for the week is intent — which sounds kind of strange.

But I want to focus on intent with each small thing to be done, while keeping an eye on the bigger picture.

I will think of you, if you will think of me, and we can use our combined energy to achieve what is necessary.

What is your intent for the week?

Waxing Moon

Sunny and milder

I need a miracle to happen this weekend, so I’m wishing as hard as I can, and working as hard as I can. My intent is to make the wish a reality, although I don’t yet know how it will happen.

With a new moon starting in my own sign this past weekend, it’s time for me to take flight. Make decisions, trust my instincts. Let’s hope I land well!
