While on a long walk last weekend, I realized how easy it is to let seasons come and go without taking the time to really think through what we’d like to have, do, and be during that season.
Personally, I’m really great at setting a vision for the year with a future letter. But after that is written, I allow my weekly priority list to guide my steps throughout the rest of the year without much extra thought.
The weekly priority list does a good job keeping me on task in my career and in other life roles as well. But it lacks the larger scope that I would like to have for a season. When it comes to things I’d like to intentionally purchase, fun day trips I’d like to take, or (most importantly) outlooks I’d like to have more frequently, a bigger picture vision for the season would be ideal.
To help me outline my vision for the summer season (
June, July, and August), I whipped up this free printable. I have also included it here for you as well, if you’d like to print it out and do the same exercise for your own summer intention calendar!

After the items are listed, the key is to place the page somewhere visible. Then, include the actions or goals on a weekly priority list or in the calendar itself – depending on the item in question – at the appropriate time of the season.
In this way, I hope that we can bring a little more forethought and intention to each season, according to our personal visions and future letters.
