There’s a mode of thinking that says that if you want to do well or survive in this world you need to engage in positivity. The idea goes that if you spend all of your time dwelling on negative thoughts you won’t succeed at anything.

Just returned from an incredible weekend with loads of beautiful people! Intention is a gathering of folks who get together to celebrate the start of the Gregorian new year and set a positive intention of community and creativity going forward. I’ve been wanting to go to for several years now.

I’ve had so many friends return with such a positive vibe and good words to say about the event but I’ve somehow managed to miss it every year until now.

So I spent the weekend engaging in workshops given by attendees and just plain dancing my ass off! Now I’m riding such an incredible but sublime high that I’m having to remind myself to remain calm and centred in the middle of it all.

But the best part is how I’m feeling like a deep sense of creativity has been activated inside. I’m really looking forward to the coming year and all of its joys and challenges.

Happy new year and ever after to you all!
