Spend your summer intentionally.

Dear Friend,
Have you started your Summer of Intentionality lists yet? I am super excited to report lots of people have reached out to say they are starting to think differently about how they spend their summer time and want to use their time a bit more intentionally. Please hit reply and let me know what you want to read, do and learn this summer!
A few friends contacted me to say my lists were kinda stressing them out because my reading and to do lists are pretty long. This is such a great point! My lists {especially the fun ones} are long on purpose.
I spend a great deal of time (as do you) dealing with the seriousness of grown up life that when I have some free time rather than having fun on purpose or spending time getting lost in a good novel I find myself at the bottom of a Facebook rabbit hole wondering where the last two hours of my life went. {Please tell me I'm not the only one....}
These lists are mostly a reminder to myself that fun doesn't have to be super planned or time consuming, it can be as simple as eating our meals outside away from all the screens or laying on a blanket in the backyard reading another Mercy Watson book out loud to my daughter.
There is probably no way possible for me to finish all the items on my lists. In fact, that's part of the project for me - to see what I actually do by the end of the summer. So much of my life has been productivity driven, at least for the summer months I want to be sure to mix in some fun. And to let go of the idea that if something makes my list that I am obligated to finish it.
I say BOO to that business. Summer is for fun! And reading! And learning!
Without further ado...
TGBTS/Tami's 2014 Summer To Learn List:

  • Webby things. It is my intention to have a sparkly NEW WEBSITE to reveal by Labor Day.
  • Instagram is my favorite social media site. I would like to learn how to use it effectively.
  • How to look good in a photo to myself. I will let you know when I figure it out. I think the answer might be different than we first think.
  • Positive Discipline techniques for my professional three and a half year old. It might involve locking myself in the bathroom.
  • How to prepare vegan salads (you'd think that would be a given....) that I want to eat every day of my life. I will share what I learn.
  • How to do some basic hand lettering and water color. Ever since I took an art journalling class I've been a little obsessed with water coloring and I've recently fallen down the let's pin all the hand lettering pins rabbit hole. 

I do hope you decide to make you own Summer of Intentionality lists. Please hit reply and tell me all about it. If you'd like to take a peek at some of my lists from the past click here.

 

With lots of love and compassion,

Tami
