Checking in: This past week my intention was to honor the energy I have this week and explore my passions in interactive storytelling and game design. I did OK, overall. I've noticed that my energy was really lost on Wednesday through Friday (and a bit into Saturday). That led to me spending more time on social media than I would have liked. I'm still noticing those patterns of old creeping in. I think my main issue is that I'm not really focusing on anything in particular; I have several areas of focus vying for the same attention. I think I need to give myself permission to push some of those into my someday / maybe list for now and give myself permission to do some low-effort focus to get my new patterns in place.

I was hoping for a period of unbridled creativity, but I know myself too well; I knew that my patterns of just being passive would come into play. I've seen this before when I was unemployed. My intention is to break free of those patterns and give myself permission to use the weird moments of energy to better effect.

My intention for this week is to narrow my focus down to one single passion project and give it the attention that it deserves. I know my tendency is to have a few things going at the same time but I'm hoping to at least resist this for as long as I can before I start trying to bring in other passions into the fray.

I'll need to figure out which things get shoved off into someday / maybe and which things get priority. That'll be today's task. It might get tweaked throughout the week but I need to pick one and set a limit for just having the one. I'll post about my progress wit this selection process later in the week.
