Fall Intentions

I am participating in an online coaching session with Homespun Living (Katie).  Today was the first in the series.  The objective is to set seasonal homespun intentions for the upcoming season.  I am typically a really, really good list maker, project participant and human”doing”.  BUT I struggle with more intrinsic  and relational goals and intentions;  and when I set them they have a tendency to take the back burner.

So with heartfelt sincerity, I decided to really focus on the “feeling” of fall, the feeling I wanted to have during fall and although I still have my post notes, flip charts and to do list, I want this to be more of a touchy/feely kind of intention board.  I decided to use collage to help my right brain out and this is what I have come up with :


First you may notice all the white space—intentional intention :).  I typically do not leave enough white space or openness in my life or schedule, so NOT filling the collage up with stuff represents me not filling up every space of my life with something.

The red barn at the top represents everything “Farmgirl-Unleashed” related.  My blog and what I learn from her everyday. 

The “Love” banner over the couch with blankets and pillows = hubby and me time, coziness, and just being. 

Johnny’s and the garden type pics = taking time to read, plan, do and dream about my gardens and providing more of our own food.

Pumpkins, rakes, boots, fall festival = harvest to me and fun stuff that goes with fall and cooler weather

Kitchen = new kitchen in the works

Tea = relax, enjoy, pause

Yoga girl = relax and think; feel centered in my values

Smiling girl = enjoyment

Dracula = go to this!  We never have and are going to go this fall!

Cheese and Table = friends over for sharing and talking and toasting

Sewing girl = time in my craft room to craft and journal

Big dinner table = family time; all my girls are visiting in November 🙂

Two girls = girl friend time

Leaves/Bikes/Picnic/Walking = time with hubby watching and enjoying the leaves change colors, enjoy living in a place with true 4 seasons and biking and hiking in the midst of it.

Do you set intentions for the season or have a bucket list of seasonal events?  How do you insure that you include fun and stillness and being present in the moment in the midst of all you do?
