Walk the line.
Being intentional takes courage, takes time, and intentionality. I can attest to walking a fine line during these shorter, darker days. My fuse is shorter, my attention span lessens, and I feel depleted more easily. Here is what being intentional looks like for me:
Staying connected with family -- long calls or conversations that are about deeper things.
Finding one new thing to learn or do each week; (small things like trying a new recipe or new running route);
Spending time away from technology when we are not working;
Planning something for the future (a trip, a remodel, a savings plan for a splurge);
And I employ all my rituals that ground me daily, weekly, seasonally.
It also looks like breathing and NOT being intentional. Resting all systems.
How are you walking the line....
