Crafting your vision and intention

Resources: Crafting Your Vision Worksheet

How to use the Crafting your Vision Worksheet

Having it all is a myth, and it’s a myth that for some reason is continually perpetuated to women. It feels like we are constantly told that not only can we have it all, we should have it all.

Just because having it all is a myth, doesn’t mean hope is gone.

You can’t have it all, but when you take ownership over what it is you want and take baby steps to get there you start to feel like you have it all. You will in reality have all that matters to you.

That’s what this worksheet is designed to do. It will help you discover what it is that you want, and what resources you are willing to use to get what you want.

This worksheet is in 3 parts.

Craft Your Vision

Part 1 is Crafting your vision. For this part of the worksheet, you are going to think about exactly what you want mealtime to look like. Think about all of the things you usually feel resentment about and wave your magic wand to make them better. This vision can (and should) be unrealistic. We’ll reign it in later. Pretend that time, money, and energy aren’t an issue and you have all of the resources available to make mealtime be exactly what you want it to be.

Questions to Ponder

Now that you know what you want it’s time to consider what you have and to prioritize what you want. This is where we will hone down our options to figure out what you want the most from your vision, and what resources you have available to put towards what you want. Be honest at this point and remember that if you choose to prioritize everything you will be putting all of your resources (time, money, and energy) toward your goals and you will burn out quickly. Remember that as you work on one thing and that one thing becomes a habit, you will be able to reevalute your resources later and start on something else.

Setting Your Intention

Now that you have a better idea of what you want, and what resources you are willing to use to start working toward what you want. Now set a realistic intention that you will use to guide your decisions that you make in your meal planning through the rest of the course.
