Weekly Intention and Meal Plan ~ February 6

Happy Monday! Setting weekly intentions is a simple, effective way to find your focus and keep you in that driven, motivated mindset. I find, that writing intentions down makes it all the more easier to get things done and to really live an intentional life. Whatever is on your to do list, I believe it’s the little choices you make each day that will get you that step closer to developing the true YOU!
My Weekly Intention:  This week I want to work on breaking negative cycles. I've been feeling so negative lately with everything that is happening in the world. It's so easy to become entrapped in a cycle of negativity, especially when you are surrounded with so much of it.  It's every where- in the news, on social media, in the workplace... Negative thoughts and energy are contagious and propagate themselves.  But, any cycle of negativity can be transformed into a positive one by making the choice to do so and then intently focusing on it. I think the key to breaking any cycle of negativity is to shift your state of mind and then return to what is simple that I know can alter my perspective...spending time in nature, talking with friends and loved ones, finding things to laugh about and smiling at everyone I see.

This week I will Nurture:
My body.  This week I have scheduled exercise into my day. I need to be physical. My body is craving a good workout and I am setting time aside each day to exercise and I will not feel guilty about it. 
My family.  Take time every day to hug the girls and John. Text my family during the day to let them know that I'm thinking about them. Mail a package to Andrew at school. Attend family yoga on Sunday.
My home. Paint the kitchen this week. I've finally chosen a color~ Elmira White by Benjamin Moore.
My Soul.  Continue with my gratitude journal. Continue reading The Daybook of Comfort and Joy every morning.  
My Creativity.  This month I'm going to continue with soldering practice but will be focusing on the projects in  a class by Stephanie Lee's called, Hand Forged: Metal and Torch Soldering Jewelry Class. 
My Mind.  I will stop multi-taskng. I will do one thing at a time so that I can devote my entire awareness to that one task. When I am finished with one task, I will move onto the next. I hope this will help build concentration and focus. 
My Work. I will prepare to teach a new professional development class about teaching vocabulary. I will also complete multi-sensory projects and post them in my TPT shop.

This Week I want to remember:
"Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future." Deepak Chopra

Here's what we are eating this week:
