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.
You too? Here are 3 resources to help: Continue reading
Our holiday wish for you this year? That you would…
INCUBATE. Give yourself the time to sit and be still. Listen and wait to hear.
NOTICE the intents and dreams that have been residing in your heart and mind. Give them honest consideration rather than rush to disregard.
TRUST yourself. Trust the words of encouragement and wisdom from the important people in your life.
EXPRESS those hopes and dreams. Be brave enough to write them down, share them, speak life into them.
NURTURE those hopes and dreams. It’s going to require time. It’s going to mean saying no to other good things to make space and time for something great. A little sunshine. A little water. A lot of time.
TAKE ACTION when it’s time to move. You have to be watching and you have to be ready for when that moment arrives and maybe that moment is right now. What is more worthwhile than taking a risk on something important to you?
So take a moment to sit.
Don’t worry about the whole process at once.
Start with time to incubate.
Wishing you all the best and a season of growth in the new year!

Sunday, June 21st we celebrate the men who have filled the role of “father” in our lives. The transition into motherhood and fatherhood can be so different. Women experience a physical change that clearly reflects entering this new phase of life. It’s very hard to miss that something new is happening. For men, however, there is no growing belly, second heart beat or fluttering of a baby’s kicks to signal a new page outside of watching their partner. This means becoming a dad can be just as much about deciding to step into the role as it is contributing DNA. It means readily accepting the care and responsibility for a new life and that is a big job! Continue reading
I have always associated “Mothers Day” as a Hallmark holiday, and thus have truly resented it. And in recent years, its also become a time when I am inundated with requests to write articles.
As someone who runs my own editorial calendar for www.intentblog.com , I know there is higher search, sponsorship opportunities, and popularity on this theme so strategically it’s a good idea for a media platform to honor moms this week.
Today is Saint Patrick’s Day! Named for a man who was brave and made the most of hard situations, the original Patrick was kidnapped by Gaelic raiders and found God in the years he spent on the Emerald isle. He was able to escape back to his home in Britain only to return to Ireland as an evangelist after becoming a priest.
Are you in a rock bottom moment? Maybe it’s an opportunity waiting to be realized, with out without a little luck! Here are some words of wisdom to bring a little extra shimmer to your Tuesday: Continue reading
