I hate grocery shopping…it not the act of shopping that is the problem, it is deciding.
There are so many inputs when it comes to the food I buy— the health conscious literature (constantly changing), the kiddos desires, the hubby’s desire, the how-much-effort-am-I-willing-to-go-to question, the weekly schedule, the cost, the hungry tummy…I’m sure there are more. But, when I take the time to meal plan, I’m 100% better off. I go to the store armed with a list of what to buy and my week goes much better.
I’ve found the same to be true for my every part of my life. When I take the time to decide what I want, I can create a plan and achieve it! When I don’t take the time, I don’t reach my goals. This is true for every part of life—if you don’t decide you want to go to Hawaii this year, you’re not going to go.
The longer I’ve lived, the more complicated and hard it seems to be to decide what I want. Like with grocery shopping, there are more and more inputs to consider: family commitments, money, time, daily demands like the grocery shopping and the laundry, fear and anxiety….the list goes on. There can also be a limiting belief that doing this work doesn’t change anything.
Take the Time
Taking the time changes everything! It’s enabled me to launch a new business, go to Yellowstone with the fam, integrate more fun in my life and more!
My approach takes into account the inputs—the basic requirements of life—as well as my own priorities, so I can live more intentionally and align my decisions about how I spend my time with those priorities.
If you’re interested on taking the time to define your intentional life, I’m hosting a workshop on April 13 from 2-5 p.m. to guide you through this process. You’ll set your intentions and create a strategy for meeting them. And you’ll have a lot of fun in the process.
