It would cost more to send them back than to keep them, so I kept them. When it was time for our home remodel, I tossed them in a box. In the past few weeks, I had an idea for what to do with them, but then I wasn't sure where they were.
So, yesterday I opened some of the boxes that seemed promising. They weren't in the box marked Blank books or Sketchbooks. But I was pleased to find my older spiritual sketchbook journaling so I pulled those out.
Finally in a box marked Religious, Bibles, Odds and Ends, I found them. This morning, I made my first sketch of intentions for the week.
My plan is to make this kind of sketch every Sunday. I plan to write several goals, most of them artistic, some of them spiritual, some of them pointing me to a different future which is as yet undisclosed. I will only add the physical stuff (eat more veggies, exercise more, that type stuff) I will keep the sketch on the windowsill above my writing desk, as the Advent wreath evolves into something else:
My hope is that I will live more intentionally as I write my goals for the week, as I look at them each morning. I hope that a year from now, when I take the long view back, I'll realize how much more I accomplished by keeping this kind of log:
