This is my little practice of saying Hullo to the Week, as inspired by Havi’s Hello, day exercise: an opening ritual for conscious intention setting that seems to just make everything go so much better. Yays! You can see my first post on this for a longer explanation, if you’re into that sort of thing.

Aha! Got in on a Monday, for the first time since making Hullo, week! a thing. But it is 21h15 and I am tiredy-tired, so I will make this short and sweet.
What I’d like from you:
Dear week, the weather forecast is not looking good. It has been three days of rain now, and I have not seen the sun in that much time. This is not so good on my mental wellbeing. So, I would like to activate the combined powers of [self-care + adaptability] so that I might avoid total cabin-fever spaz-out this week.
What I would also like: connection with friends. Micromovements on the stuff-I-want-to-get-done. Taking back overdue library books. Movement. Doing my cooking days without stressing out about it. To finish painting my desk and have it reinstalled in the Creative Dreaming Room.
The qualities & essence of the week
[+ not going crazy]
[+ connection to my body]
[+ love and taking care]
Something I’d like to do for my body this week
Go to dance class again! Walk up the Maitai once the river’s gone back down. Say ‘Hullo, body’ when I remember to.
♥ Slightly-Future-Me says:
I love you and you are smart. ’Nuff said.
Allies, resources and support
Asking Our Dave for support. Forcefielding and clearing out stuck energy. Acupressure magic.
What this week could be like
Ease-filled. Grounded and spacious and gently interacting with my still deeply-embedded, unhelpful pattern around time in grounded, spacious and gentle ways. Just really quite nice.

Hullo, lovely to have you here!
As always, the usual comment zen applies: we’re all working with our stuff (very much including me), and we give each other space and love to do it in. Noticing where our stuff gets triggered + not throwing our stuff at other people = safe space to explore!
If you’d like to play with me in saying Hullo to the week, that’d be a whole lot of fun for me. Community! Comradeship! All those other good things. You could join in silently and that would still be lovely and appreciated.
p.s. By the way, the itsy-bitsy teeny-weeny comment button is up there, by the post title. I know it’s not the most practical of comment buttons, but you have to admit it’s pretty cute.
