Looking back on my post for the new moon this month, I actually made a lot more progress than I realized!

The new moon this month has come and gone, and I've been busily working toward many goals. One of them, ironically, was to start blogging on each new moon about my focus for that month. Oops!

It's the first day of Winter and we're heading into the longest night of the year. We get a full moon tomorrow (the "Long Night's Moon"), to boot!

We are so close to the start of Fall, I can almost smell the crisp air and hear the crunch of leaves beneath my feet. Okay, not really, but I can imagine them 🙂 Fall is absolutely my favorite season.

I love the tradition of picking a word for each year. A word to focus on, plan around, and maintain during mindfulness practice. 2018 is going to be big.

2018 is blessed with an abundance of full moons, giving me even more opportunities to set intentions. I like linking these intentions to the lunar phases.
