Featured Intent: Healed from the Past

screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-9-30-53-pm

Over and over we’ve found ourselves in the same place. Maybe that place is one of positivity and abundance. We’re surrounded by wise and kind people who lift us up and support us. Perhaps it’s the opposite. We continue to find ourselves in the same mess. We’re repeating patterns that have existed longer than we can remember and the hard part is imagining a life where they aren’t a part of us.

Are some of us just lucky? And does it mean there is no hope if we’re one of the unfortunate folks who pulled the short straw of struggle?

We believe that with focus, intent and genuine desire, a pattern is something that can be overcome if it is destructive. We believe that sometimes, before you can move forward, you have to deal with the past accurately and honestly. This can mean seeking or offering forgiveness. This can mean shining a light on dark corners we had long accepted as forgotten. This can mean voicing feelings and truth we didn’t even know existed.

But we’re ready for a different future so today our intent is to be healed from the past.

Featured Intent: Yes to Your Full Potential

screen-shot-2016-12-04-at-8-01-06-pm

Everyday we see original intents from our community that are encouraging and inspiring. They have hopes for seeing new jobs, new opportunities and new chapters in their stories. This week we are sharing some of our favorites, like this one. It’s one thing to have potential. It’s another to say yes to it. Are you ignoring your potential? Have you recognized that it’s waiting on your doorstep? Maybe potential is intimidating! That’s all normal and understandable, but we want to stop running from what might be waiting. Today we’re saying yes to our full potential!

Intent of the Day: Family First

fullsizerender-1

With the lightning speed that everything is happening these days, are we alone when we say that our families usually end up with the short end of the stick? Because we come home to them, we assume that time will naturally happen but this isn’t always the case. When our family gets the in-between time as we rush from event to event and task to task, we end up communicating that they aren’t a priority more than they are. Our intent of the day is to put family first. We want to be intentional in protecting our calendar, making space for the unscheduled and slowing down enough to enjoy our time because the time spent with the people who matter most is what will be the most valuable in the long run.

Intent of the Day: Shopping Mindfully

“Waste not, want not.” Today we’re focused on shopping mindfully so that our expenses don’t go wild this holiday season. Whether it’s food, gifts or household items that just need replacing, we want to make sure we are connected to how and why we spend our money.

Intent of the Day: Make A Plan

fullsizerender-1

It’s already happening. The calendar is filling up and everyday is a day where we have the potential to be double and triple booked. If this year is anything like year, it means there’s a great chance we’ll end up under the weather, irritable and missing the things that matter most if we’re not careful. So what do we do? Our intent today is to make a plan. Instead of letting everyday attack us, we want to mindfully consider what is important, say no to the things that aren’t and make sure we’re not exhausted come January 1.

Intent of the Day: Getting More Sleep

The nights are starting a little earlier these days and while you might’ve expected that you would naturally start climbing in bed a little earlier, you might be more like us and find that your bed time is creeping later and later. Mornings are getting harder and harder. Before it all gets out of hand, we want to reset. Today our intent is a simple one- to get to bed early.

Take A Breather

fullsizerender

We’re halfway through holiday season and everything seems to be moving lightning fast. Is it possible to keep up? We’re going to suggest that maybe, in the midst of madness, we find a way to slow down. Slow down to remember where you are, what you’re doing and what matter. Slow down to re-evaluate. Slow down to appreciate. If no one invites you to take a breather, it doesn’t mean you can’t make it mandatory for yourself.

Our intent of the day is to take a breather.

We are thankful for you!
We are thankful for space and freedom to build the lives we imagine.
We are thankful for friends, family and community who support and empower us.
We are thankful for the opportunity to speak on behalf of the unheard.
We are thankful for small gifts and the huge blessings.

We hope you are spending the day with people you love, doing things you love, and most of all, we hope that you are thankful!

Love, your Intent family

Intent of the Day: Let Nothing Linger

fullsizerender-1

The holidays are such a special time. They come once a year, everything feels like it could end up a little dreamier. Movies tell us this is the time when people declare their true feelings, fall in love, reunite with lost loved ones and, if that’s your hope, we sincerely hope that happens for you. In fact, we hope to have every skill we need to give our third act monologue. Or maybe just the words we need to handle whatever feelings and thoughts pop up over this season. Our #intent of the day is to let nothing linger.

Intent of the Day: Settle with Gratitude

Feeling anxious? It’s no surprise. According to Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 40 million adults in the US suffer from anxiety disorders, making it the most common mental illness. The likelihood that you or someone you know is battling with some form of it, especially as the holidays approach, is tremendous. If it is part of your life, perhaps the holidays have become a mixed blessing of happy memories and a struggle to keep your feelings at bay. Knowing that so much can contribute to anxiety, we want to start by developing a practice of combating it with the simple and beautiful act of gratitude.
