This Monday I have a special treat for you. My new friend Trish Russell has agree to bring her mini moments of intentional living to share with us. From the moment I met her I was drawn to her bright energy and warm personality. I know you will fall in love with her and her idea of intentional moments.
The alarm has gone off. It’s time to swing those feet out of bed and enter a new week. What do you start your day with? Coffee? Tea? Juice? Smoothie?
What if you started Monday with a moment of excitement, exhilaration, hope? Along with your ‘go juice.’ Let’s choose to make this Monday different. How about we set the tone for our week as one of great anticipation and joy.
Grab a pen & paper. Open up a ‘notepad’ app. Write or type ONE joy in your life right now. It could be a new friend, a book, a recipe, clean sheets, anything…it matters…take a note of what makes you smile. Place it somewhere you’ll see it. Use it as your phone background, a sticky note by your desk or at the bathroom sink. Now, as you go through your day, you’ll have a reminder of what brings you joy in this moment. Hopefully, you’ll be able to smile or reorient your thoughts if you’re feeling overwhelmed or stressed.
Hi! My name is Trish Russell and this is what I’m about. Finding ways to create moments throughout our days that will leave a forever impact. Our lives are so chaotic and busy. How do we protect our love and dreams for our loved ones? By choosing to invest in ourselves and them every day with intentional moments. No huge grand gesture. The people in your life and those that are still to come into it want you, engaged and joyful, in their lives.
Melissa and I met on periscope a few weeks ago and she has graciously offered for me to be her guest every other Monday. I look forward to getting to know you all and appreciate the opportunity to be a part of Melissa’s community. You can find me on Facebook at Trish Russell or Periscope @GatherwithTrish.
