Intentional Living

Bike-Black-and-White

 

Travis has been gone for about a week and I’ve found myself hunkering down and staying home with the kiddos. And because I’m an analytic person and I had more time to think, I started to ask myself why I didn’t make fun plans during the days.

There’s the easy answers of laziness or the fact I’m an introvert and alone time makes my heart sing.

But I had the feeling I hadn’t dug deep enough. So I took some time and came to realize I was reacting to life’s busy schedule and not being intentional with my days. The word, ‘intentional’ has a bit of a bitter taste in my mouth but being objective and trying to see my schedule through different lenses allowed me to see my growth areas. I was going with the flow of our schedule. Not bad but who’s in charge? Me or my schedule? I was seeing the areas that were busy and so I became focused on forcing ‘rest time’ for my family.

We don’t need rest. We are well rested. In fact my kids receive so much rest that they’re bouncing off the walls when they’re at home! 🙂

I began to ask myself how I would change my days if I wanted to actually see people, get out of my neighborhood and be intentional with my time. It started with hanging with friends. Going to the Center of Krakow more alone. And practice my Polish!!!

So I hung out with a friend a couple days ago (Hi!) and went to Krakow’s main Rynek. Beautiful day (33C!) and I loved being out exploring the town, cementing neighborhoods and streets in my mind. Here are some pictures 🙂
