It was harder then I expected

So... my intentions of blogging on being intentional for 31 days was a big fat fail.  This month along with the past two months has been jam packed with busy work.  This month my I have been helping not only my mom pack and move but helping my sister as well.  My sister moved out and my mom moved in.  Interesting right?  You may also be wondering why.  Well, my sister found a place with a pool and she decided to move there and the house that she was living in has a garage and that was convenient for my mom so the moves happened and let me tell you what, "I DISLIKE MOVING WITH A PASSION!" I don't want to have to do it again.  So to make what can be a long story short my mom and sister are settling in and they both want me to help them and I am just so burnt out with my own things and I have a room at my mom's home so I have to set it up.  

Being intentional has been hard sometimes because people can be rude and that's just a downer.  But, I have been able to be more intentional and I like it  When speaking to my mom I have learned to intentionally pay attention to her needs though it can be hard sometimes because certain details that aren't important to me are important to her and I need to learn to accept her ideas and point of views.  I don't know if you ever struggle with that with any parent.  Where they focus on something that is not that important to you and you kind of dismiss their ideas?  I hope I am not the only one because then that would mean that I am just a bad daughter.

Can I share something with you?  I feel like a complete and total failure this month.  I was so positive that I was going to be able to blog everyday in October but after all I can only take things one step at a time or one day at a time and if the time for me wasn't there then I just need to let it go right?  Ok yeah, thank you for the little talk.

My plan for the next month is to attempt to blog as much as I can so I can get more of you lovely people reading here.
