Intention presented itself to me several times in the past few days. I almost wondered if it should be my word for the next year. A few minutes ago I left a tea chat on Instagram where they were talking on sharing tea with intention, being in the moment. Another chat early this morning also talked about meditation as you sip your tea, just to take moments throughout the day to pause, sip tea, and let our mind rest.
Saturday I attended a wreath making gathering with 6 women. I love the lite candles greeting us as we entered. Candles always cause me to pause and notice.
Then we got down to creating. Sometimes creating is messy. Wreath making is messy, but it smelled so good.
It was a rainy day, but I didn't mind going outdoors to find just the right material for my wreath.
Even the resident cat was intrigued. She sat there among the mess and paid attention.
At the end of the day my wreath and I returned home. I hung the wreath above my mantle, right where I planned for it to be. Now if you notice, it isn't the most perfect or neatest wreath you have ever seen. Nope, I didn't want it to be perfect. I attended the gathering with the intention of making an imperfect wreath, something a bit wild.
Normally I am a neat and tidy creative person, but for some reason I knew I had to intentionally do something out of my comfort zone and accept it for what it became.
