Check In: Day 315

Week 45: So how is everyone doing on their intentions for 2021? Mine have been up and down but with the sun shining the last two days and it being almost 40 degrees in Michigan? I am pushing forward. Fortitude.

It is easy to push ahead when the days are sunny and the temperatures feel warm. It is much harder to do when days turn dark and the temperatures dip to single or negative numbers. There will be many more of those days before we get to Spring weather here. So, I am trying to find ways to push through those days I don’t want to.

What do you do to keep your spirits up when days are dark and weather is cold?

    Think about gardening this summer. We have SO much work to do, but we’ll have no choice about getting it done because I’ve got so many seeds that need to be started indoors, and things that will be shipped in time for planting in our zone. Thinking about it gets me excited, every time! 🙂

      That sounds like fun. We had our first container garden last summer and we are excited for this summer. Planning ahead!

      We had our first real flower beds this past summer. They usually die but because we were home they lasted into November! We are already planning flowers for summer. I cannot keep them inside because our cat thinks they are Kitty Salad.

        *L* We’ve had to get VERY creative with shielding our plants from the cats! Unfortunately, they love to break off leaves from the jade trees to play with them. Jade trees are toxic to cats. They don’t eat them, but they do bite into them to carry them around. 😦

    I envision a ball of sunlight above my head and I breathe it in through there and see it streaming forth from my heart center, center chest envisioning all the people I know or have heard of or situations, even and sending them that light, friends, relatives, people in the news, places there is conflict. It will make you feel better in no time, guaanteed. Blessings, Tasha

      I love that thought. When I lay in bed at night I envision our house is full of light blue light pushing out all that isn’t pure and love. I need to do that with myself. Thank you!

  5. My intentions are the next chapters continuing from the previous book in my life. Marrying my promised mother told me of, a decent place to live, a new paid off car, losing the weight caused by hazard medicine.
