Well, villagers, I don’t know about you, but this holiday season was a doozy. Shall we blame it on Mercury Retrograde?
For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, I guess I need to tip my hand: I am totally, and unabashedly into astrology and metaphysical things of all kinds.
While I didn’t aaactually become a Wiccan after being inspired by The Craft (I am a Halloween Baby, after all), it got my elemental mind going on all sorts of rides on energy and the universe.
Happy New Year, villagers!
I think we were all ready to say, “BYE!” To 2016. But as I counted down its final seconds, it felt ingenuine to welcome 2017. I’m totally freaked about the struggles this new year will bring. But, I do believe there are some things about any new year that are worth getting excited about.
I’m talking intentions, people!!
I don’t know about you, but physically taking the action to sit down and write out my wants really does it for me. Figuring out and planning the steps I need to take to get there makes change feel that much more attainable. And, as a novice bullet journaler, the idea of pouring my ideas out in a visually pleasing way feels like even more of a treat. But that’s my own obsession. (Which you will be hearing more about, promise.)
Regardless of what your list ends up looking like, I recommend the practice of goal setting.
Because, why opt-out of a chance to be your best you?
A couple of weeks ago, a good friend of mine, Elizabeth Seldin, contacted me saying that she had an idea and wanted to meet. We were still in the thick of the post-election whirlwind and clamoring to figure out productive ways to get involved.
We met for coffee and she told me her idea: host a letter-writing action giving people a platform to share their expectations with our president-elect, Donald Trump. We provide the paper and markers, the People bring their demands.
