September Goals: Fostering Intention in Everyday


September is, by far, my favorite month of the year. This year, it won’t disappoint, either! We have a jam packed with goodness and new adventures month, so goals will be in preparation for the rest of the year and I am SO excited!

Last month was all about focus and let me tell you, it was on! Progress, not perfection, but every goal was met last month. Wow! Being intentional and planning things out is so important and helped last month flow smoothly. There was even time for a movie night with AJP amidst all the beautiful weddings we brought to life for our sweet couples!


Oh September, you sweet friend. This is the month that our favorite season graces us with her presence, the season of bonfire nights, cozy sweaters and boots, cider, football, apple everything, the beloved PSL and all things pumpkin! The month that we were wed, that we first spoke via Facebook message across an ocean, the month that we have created some of our best memories. This year, will be no exception, but you’ll have to stay tuned next week to find out why!

In preparation for the next awesome Pocho adventure, this month’s goals are centered around fostering intention:

Foster creativity with weekly brainstorm sessions. With the busyness of the summer season, it has been far too long since I took a creative field trip or just let my mind wander with no end game in sight. Even if it is only a 30 minute session of creative brain dump or free writing, I am scheduling that time in.

Get it on paper. Whether it is personal plans or HHE plans, I need to get it out of my head and on paper. Not only does it make the ideas and to do’s real (because I can’t forget them in black and white), but it allows me to organize them and set intentional plans for little by little action.

Pour into people. This is one that, despite my best efforts, I do not do enough of. Even though this month will be full of its own challenges, people are why we are here. People are the heartbeat of my why and this life. Of all the goals,  this is the priority and I am so excited for it!

Can you tell this month is about preparation and a clean mental slate? Now that I have a little bit of down time, getting things out and clearing up mental space to dream bigger and focus on the season we are entering into is SO important. What goals, intentions and wonderful things do you have planned for this beautiful month?

xoxo, Jenn
