New Year

I don't make New Years resolutions, I set intentions. But I also think any moment, any second, is a good time to set intentions and New Years just seems to be an agreed-upon time by the masses. Actually there are lots of different New Years throughout the calendar; but there sure is a lot of collective energy for the Jan 1st one.

While I was with my sister, we visited a little new age shop in the West Village. I saw a little box in there that I really liked, and it "called" to me to be an intention box. So I bought it. It's a very Goddess-energy kind of box.

Throughout today, and the days to come, I'll put my intentions in this box so they can gather energy. It will be a fun ongoing thing to do. (Note to self: Must keep it away from the toddler...) I've also started a new journal, which is a very good thing.

So far, I intend to:
*Produce lots more artwork
*Work in my sketchbook
*Take 2 days a week and keep the computer off at home (I'll still be on at the office)
*Meditate more regularly
*Drink lots and lots of tea (very important)

Happy New Year to all of you! I hope you find all the brightest blessings life has to offer.


  1. I like your use of the word 'intentions'. Sounds like a good way to go.

    happy New Year.

  2. i love the box and the intentions too, i hope it's herbal tea you will be drinking, how about water, i drink litres of it a day and nothing else, very good for the inner organs and the soul. happy new year to you too.xx

  3. Happy new year and brightest blessings!

  4. I will try these intentions also! I like it better...not quite as "set in stone" kind of a feeling! Gonna go get a special box and review them every day and night!!!
    Thanks Jessica!

    I love the idea of the Intentions box....and what a beautiful box too. I can see why you felt 'called' to it.

    Something tells me you are going to be in for a very creative and productive year. I look forward to sharing the experience with you via your blog.

    love, light and peace,
