June Intentions
 

I want to be like Lee Tilghmam when I grow up. I stumbled upon @LeeFromAmerica on Instagram about a year ago and instantly fell in love with her healthy recipes, self-help tips, and holistic lifestyle posts. I like to think of her as the "totally attainable instagramer"; letting you in on all the secrets behind each picture. 



I told you she lets you in on everything...even inflammation, IBS, and leaky gut..

My favorite part of her life she shares, though, are her monthly intentions. Think of these as goals or areas of your life you want to put more focus towards each month. This past week, she sat down on her Insta story to talk about the intentions she had for this month and spoke about why she even writes them down in the first place. Basically, it came down to finding areas in her life that she could improve and find growth in. Needless to say, I was inspired. 


 

Happy Happy June🧑 Starting the week with a fresh mind, clean slate, and a fresh batch of intentions for the month ahead. This month, I'm focusing on the light of summer propelling me forward, letting my strengths out to play, going after what I want, tapping into the my fellow sisterhood, and practicing more gratitude. Don't forget to share your #LFAintentions so we can stay inspired and see what intentions you are setting for the month! 1. Be relentless in chasing after what you want. No more waiting for just the right time, someone else to give you permission, or for everything to be perfectly put into place. Consider this your permission. Go after it now. 2. Shine the spotlight onto the strengths you already have. Embody them. Play them up. Bring them out to the surface. Let them out. Use them to your advantage. They are meant to be used, after all. 3. Don't let the small self make those big decisions. To me, the small self is the voice of fear- it is irrational, anger, hurt, sadness, jealousy, resentment, scarcity. The small self will always rear its head every once and a while, but when it does, it sure as HECK isn't sitting in the driver's seat and steering the car. Ask: "am I choosing myself or choosing fear?" If fear, you have your answer. 4. Tap into sisterhood. Note to self: Call ya girlfriends and make a date. It is undeniably electrifying for me to tap into and surround myself with the power of the female. We don't have to brave it all alone. Encircling myself and basking in the feminine spirit is so important to my mental health and staying grounded. 5. Practice 30 days of gratitude journaling - each night before bed, I will write at least one thing in my journal that I'm grateful for. Expressing gratitude for we have- (anything from a roof over our head, to a friend, clean sheets, or cashew butter) is a quick, cost free way of lowering stress and gaining perspective. What are your intentions this month?

 

For the first time, I wrote down a couple of my own intentions for the month (and hung them on the fridge where I can't forget about them). Check it out down below. I decided to start with intentions that were a little more measurable just so I could more easily keep track of progress. I'll make sure to keep you all updated on how it all goes. Hopefully her list of intentions or mine, will help inspire you or give you ideas on areas in your life you could improve on.
