Setting an Intention
Here at the Autism Treatment Center of America we start our week with intentions that we carry out throughout the week.
On Monday morning we all sit down as a group and wake our minds and hearts up with inspiring words about the work we do and the families we get to share ourselves with. We choose to take this moment to become completely present within ourselves. Once we take this moment to ground ourselves, we set an intention for that week- often our intentions are focused on the following:
LOVING FULLY, APPRECIATION, GRATITUDE, SEEKING JOY, TRUST, STRENGTH IN WHAT WE KNOW, AWARENESS, BEING PRESENT -MOMENT FOR MOMENT, THE DESIRE TO BE DARING, SEEKING CLARITY, BEING PASSIONATE… and the list continues to grow week after week 🙂
These intentions are a way for us to focus and ground ourselves for the week we are about to embark on– a week with a new family and a new autistic friend! We set intentions as a way for our team of Son-Rise staff to start a new week completely present, ready to offer ourselves and our guidance with conviction and purpose. We set intentions for the families, and for the children, but also for ourselves– as it all starts with each one of us!
I encourage all of you to do the same– and set an intention for your day, your week, month, etc. and enjoy carrying out this intention! Please keep us posted on your intentions as we absolutely love being inspired by you!!
Much much LOVE,
