What a month it has already started out to be! In November, I had my MOHs surgery for skin cancer as well as my breast explant surgery both leaving me with an abundance of gratitude and appreciation in my heart.
As I share my December intentions, I am recovering from both surgeries. I will be dedicating a separate post to sharing about those surgery experiences. So, be sure to subscribe to be the first to know when it is up on the blog!
For now, I really wanted to share my monthly intentions. Have you written yours? If not, what are you waiting for?! If you’re new to intention setting, start simple.
Set one or two intentions to focus on each day for an entire month. Post your intentions somewhere you will see them every single day.
I used to set a reminder on my phone to have my intentions pop up every morning upon waking, but I learned that I like writing my intentions on paper better. That’s just what appeals to me right now!
Making Intentions Yours
Intentions can be actions you want to bring into your life more regularly or they might be something you wish to change about your current situation. Almost always, intentions are set to encourage “betterment”. They are guiding posts to lead you in the direction you wish to move.
This month, I have chosen four intentions to guide me. It’s probably no surprise that most of them are centered around healing. My soul and body require some healing this month, so I want to support them with these intentions:
- Express my love and gratitude for my family every day. This past year has been a struggle. A struggle to feel happy, energized, and “in love” with life. Coming out of my surgery, I had an overwhelming sensation of love and gratitude for my loved ones (wait until you read my surgery post with all the details!). It’s like all the love I knew I should be feeling was trapped inside and finally set free. So, I vow to share my love and gratitude every day, openly, without restriction.
- As I heal, it is more important than ever to fuel my body with healing foods. I spent years accumulating toxins and I want to give my body the much needed love it deserves by choosing plant-based meals and juices first and foremost. Currently, I have NO interest in sugar or alcohol which I am hoping to continue. My body just needs a chance to breathe, recover, and heal.
- When I am hurting, of course I want the hurt to go away IMMEDIATELY (who likes to be uncomfortable, I mean really?!). As I recover from surgery, this desire is no different, but I am reminding myself that God knows what is best for me. His timing is always perfect. While I want to be pain free like….YESTERDAY, I am putting my faith in how God wishes my body to heal. So, I will be patient and take it one day at a time.
- I created this blog to share experiences from my life as a way to increase others’ awareness to all things health & wellness. My passion is in helping others feel their best primarily through healing modalities. As I learn ways to heal and live my best life, I want to share these resources with others. I hope my blog touches others in a positive way!
