Hello everyone! I am very excited to share a little piece of me with you and see where this goes. My name is Laura Gonzalez, but mostly known as Laurie. I am twenty-eight years old and mostly figuring out life as I go. I am passionate about life, health, nutrition, relationships, wellness and our capacity to balance all aspects of living a healthy and happy life.
It has taken me a while to get this up and running, but I finally found my ideal first post to share with you, which is something that resonates with me very much. And so, I want to introduce you to ” A Happy Medium” , a space for sharing, and loving, and finding balance in this messy life we live. Starting off my main focus will be to promote awareness about ways to live a balanced life, but as you know, things evolve as they go, so I am very open to whatever this becomes too.
As I get everything going, I want to get started sharing with you my favorite habit to do every time a new month comes around; Setting Monthly Intentions. It’s only the first week of August and it’s never too late to start, specially when it comes to setting a few intentions to work on for the next couple of weeks. So if this is something you resonate with, get a paper and a pen and lets get started.
How to start your monthly intentions:
1) Start thinking about things you want to achieve, learn, do, etc…
2) For your first set of intentions, start with these 3 things…
– something to work on to be a better human being
– something to learn
– something to let go of
4)Write it down in a place you can keep track of it every month
5)Make it visible! Write it on empty picture frame or on your bathroom mirror with a “dry-erase” marker so you get a daily reminder.
6)Share it! Hold yourself accountable by telling a close friend or someone you trust.

Now that you have your intentions set, its all about enjoying the process of putting the effort everyday. I hope you find this practice useful and a good way to achieve little important things every month towards living a more balanced life. Remember, it’s all about the journey and making the best of what you have. Do not stress or get upset for not fulfilling all of your intentions, give your best and embrace it all. Truth is, the intentions itself are not what is of most importance, but the lessons learned and the moments we live through focusing on these little “intentions”. You can find my August Intentions below. Let me know what you think and I look forward to seeing your intentions. Don’t forget to enjoy the process.
Stay balanced and live fully,
