looking ahead

I said that my focus was going to be on being Intentional. So here's what I've done to help myself with that. I bought a weekly planner that has the days divided into hours. I'm going to keep it on my desk and plan my time ahead of time. Not a tight schedule, but a schedule at least.

Then I also bought a smaller planner that just has six lines for each day. I am going to write in that what I have done. A type of accountability for myself. I hope these steps help. If you have any advice, I'd like to hear it!

I've realized some more things that I think I'll be focusing on this year. Some are follow through from this year. Humility. Intentionally being humble. I think it takes intent. Humility doesn't just happen.

Learning God's love for me. And learning to love others with God's love. Those things have been very active in my heart lately. I plan to volunteer somewhere. I've sent in an interest form to the Pregnancy Center, so we'll see what comes of that. That takes intention, too, doesn't it. See, my main theme weaves throughout my other themes!


  1. I love that you are aiming to be more intentional. It has ministered to me. Time seems to fly by and if you do not intentionally do what you want..then it will be gone with many regrets. I do not want regrets!! I pray that you do all that you aim for and more!!

  2. Wonderful Kay! You are an inspiration! I need to be more intentional also. Joining in the journey...

  3. Oh..I really like your kids think you are goofy

  4. I think having the planner will help you a lot. Just don't worry if you don't accomplish everything you set out to do each day. You'll probably still get a lot more done than you would have without it.
    I once tried setting up a schedule for cleaning my house, with certain jobs on each day, so that after a full week everything would be done and then start over. It was a great idea but I didn't stick to it...I wish I could find that schedule now!


I love to hear your thoughts!
