New Year Ritual
For Writers, Artists, and Creatives
It’s that time of the season!
New Year, New You, and all that goes with it.
Well, if you’re anything like me, New Year's resolutions are rough.
And as much as I’d like to think a “new me” is on the horizon, likely the old me will continue into 2023, and she’ll be on track with her old patterns and behaviors with a few minor edits.
C’est la vie!
This is why I’ve written us a New Year Ritual specific to artists, writers, and creatives. No self-helpers, self-appointed, so-called gurus can put us into a box!
(Are you laughing, I hope you’re laughing.)
As you bring in the New Year, I hope this finds its way into your inbox (note the new email and mark it as safe) and brings some relief and joy your way.
NEW YEAR RITUAL
🌙 Begin a new notebook or sketchbook today
🌙On the first page, write out 3 feelings you want to embody this year. For example, mine are DIGNITY, WISDOM, and JOY.
🌙 Alongside your words, make a doodle or drawing, or collage of what magic looks like for you in 2023. (DM pics — I want to see!)
Don’t overthink it — it could be just a doodle of moons and ✨ stars!
🌙 Sit quietly and intuitively wait for an idea that feels different from what you usually do. Start the journal with the drawing, sketch, or writing that intuitively came through.
🌙 When you’re done with your work, embody your old-timey inner witch and say out loud: So mote it be!
Happy New Year!
