Every year I have made an intention to take time off between Christmas and New Years. With Jess LC, it was always a mad dash to send off the last orders before I rushed off to visit my parents in Philadelphia.
This year without a retail shop to tend to, I am able to glide into the holidays at a less frenzied pace. It’s been really nice.
Starting tomorrow the Livelys will be relaxing and enjoying time with family and Christmas traditions. We are even bringing Franklin with us to see my family this year… which will bode for an interesting flight. Fingers crossed things go well and he stays quiet under my seat!
While I’m sure we will spend a fair amount of time eating, drinking, watching TV shows (hello, Homeland), and working out, I also want to bring a few books to read including Good to Great and Power Vs. Force.
Here and there I’ll be contemplating my 2013 intentions and future letter to myself, too. Over the past few weeks I’ve been unpacking what it means to set goals and intentions and uncovered a few truths. I shared them yesterday in my Wish I Knew Wednesday email about business goal setting, but really it could apply to everyone’s goals and lives.
Here’s a link if you’d like to read it.
The part about primary and secondary goals at the end is really where I am finding the most room for growth in my personal intention setting. I also look forward to helping people in these areas in the Life with Intention Workshops next year as well.
During this holiday pause I may pop in on the blog every now and then. But if it’s quiet for a few days on the blog next week, please assume that I’m eating my weight in pumpkin dip, making sure Franklin doesn’t chew on my parents furniture, and watching marathon sessions of TV with Mr. Lively and my little brother, Mike.
I hope you have a fantastic week ahead of you. And to those who celebrate Christmas, I hope it’s a merry one!
Thank you so much for reading, I cannot wait to see you back here in 2013. Great things are in store for us all!
