Summer by DesignBy
I got a big wakeup call today when I read Renee Trudeau’s post on creating an intentional summer on her blog, The Journey. She asks a simple question – what do you want your summer to be like?
That’s when it hit me. The summer? Is it summer already? Good grief! I am a business owner, master of my own destiny and manager of my own calendar… right? So what’s with all these hectic days and crammed schedules? Do I even have time to figure out what I want?
Luckily, for me, my kids, and my hubby, Renee’s post really hit me. I CAN decided what I want and create a summer of intent. I will be working on my list of things I want from this summer – not a to-do list, mind you, but what I want to create – this evening. It’s going to be filled with SLOW times with my kids, reconnecting with friends, and enjoying this wonderful place where I live. It will also consciously plan out what I need to do these next couple of months to make the rest of the year truly successful for my book, My Mommy’s on a Business Trip, and it’s soon-to-be-released partner, My Daddy’s on a Business Trip. What can I do in the next week to kick-start this summer of intention? I’ll let you know. What about you? How are you going to design your summer?
