Last month's intention was clear and simple...or so I thought.
Become a focused and peaceful driver.
Honestly? It was really hard to remember to take my 3 deep breaths. Most of the time I would take them while backing up out of my driveway (so doesn't count!). About halfway through the month I got the great idea of writing a little watercolor card with the word breathe on it, all pretty and soothing like.
That worked well...until my 2 year old ripped it off and ate it (actually she just wiped her face with it - thanks!). At the end of the day I do not think I'll be able to do the 3 deep breaths every time I start up my car, but it has helped me become a more focused driver, and therefore a more peaceful driver simply by making it a priority.
Novembers' Peace intention came rather easily.
November is a month for giving back.
Giving back to this beautiful Earth.
Giving back to the community.
Instilling in my children what it means to do true service.
Sure, we donate to charities and give cans to food drives all year long, but this month we'll go above and beyond.
We'll do the beach clean up, we'll do the food basket preparations, we'll do the bigger, more meaningful service. We will go home with peace in our hearts and hopefully it will radiate outwards.
