May Current Intentions

 Hey friends. Happy May. I usually do this on the first of the month, but it was a rough end of the month and week with Austin breaking his arm and all the fun that comes with that. This is our first child who has ever broken a bone and it has been an adventure for all of us. He is right handed, the temporary cast was so heavy, he couldn't use his arm/hand, couldn't dress himself, get up and down easily, etc. It has been a lot more than I would have ever anticipated with a broken arm. With that my plans have just got switched around. 

I am also switching the way I do my monthly goals/intentions. I have been diving into some personal development and needed some change. I feel like my monthly intentions were becoming more of a to do list just so I could check something off and not working towards my word of the year, which is Intentional, and my goals for the year. While I was diving in I revamped my goals for 2024 as well. 

Before I jump into sharing my new goals and monthly intention. I also made a new youtube video discussing everything in more detail. You can check it out here. My plan is to do a monthly intentions every month sharing my updates goals and how everything is going in more details. So be sure to subscribe. I mentioned in the video 365 day tracker. Right click and save or send me a message and I'll send you the pdf.
