sparkling 2017 — add a little mystery to the game

Happy New Year, my precious readers! I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating on New Year’s Eve and that 2017’s first week has treated you well!

Whenever there is a new beginning, there is a sparkling feeling laying hold of me. New beginnings come along with inspiration, they create new opportunities and ignite adventures. New beginnings are colorful, they shine bright with the mystery of the unknown that it going to take place through the many choices that we make day by day. A journey that is waiting to be owned, that we will enjoy and whose memory we will lateron cherish.

If you have already set up resolutions for 2017, just take a moment to reconsider them. This year, let’s try to stick to the saying “It’s not about the destination, it is about the journey.” Living by this dictum, make plans for actions rather than circumstances or state of the affairs. Let me give you a for instance: Do not set the goal “to become a yogi”, rather say “to practice yoga”. This way, you describe an action which is much easier, faster and much more realistic to realize. I assure you, doing things is much more important and it defines who you are, it is the greatest acknowledgement for the person you want to be. Performing as whoever or whatever you want to be is your answer to experiencing and feeling fulfillment as well as contentment.

Moreover, who cares about what will be any way? Why set goals for a state of affairs and making ahead-plans? Add a little mystery to the game 🙂 Isn’t it much more exciting not to know where this journey leads us? Don’t you consider the unknown to be way more happiness-revealing than plans that are schedules in advance? Sure, we do need to have a drive but we do not need to control everything. Release any tension that comes from the need to have the future under perfect control. Breathe deep in, and slowly out. Let go of pressure and enjoy the place (figuratively as well as literally) you are right now.

What’s going to happen on enchanting notions in 2017? Here we go :)…

As you have already seen, enchanting notions has a brand new logo which I love. It reflects every bit of this blog and what it means to me (and hopefully you too): its love of nature, variety in topics, its positivity, colorfulness and magical glitter. Thank you so much to my graphic designer who did a marvelous job bringing my vision of the logo to life.

On your right-hand side you may have noticed a new widget: the “little notions on the go”. It is the place I use to share my little notions with you on a daily basis. If you’d like to reply to a notions or tell me about your opinion to a topic that I refer to in “little notions on the go”, just send me an e-mail at and I will happily get back to you!

Also, I will publish at least weekly notions for you to read. I appreciate you all so much, thank you for visiting my website regularly. Enchanting notions is a wonderful place for me to let my creativity run free. Hopefully, my notions will continue to inspire you this year. If there is any topic you would like me to write about, please feel free to reach out to me.

As for my wish for you this year: I hope you have a year of DEEPEST LOVE, plates full of colorful NOURISHING FOOD, everlasting HONEST LAUGHTERS and daily PASSIONATE MOTION!
