“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – R. Dahl
There is a palpable enchantment around the holiday season – an alluring and captivating charm that seems to bring out the best of human nature. People are genuinely a little kinder, more forgiving, and generous with their time and perspectives. It seems a sincere pity that this happens to us mostly at the end of the year. Wouldn’t it be brilliant to carry the light of the season into the new year – to retain that ebullient, breezy enthusiasm?
Below are seven magical intentions to set at the beginning of the calendar instead of the end, with the hope that you re-inspire your sense of vibrant anticipation of good things to come the whole year through.

2019 was a filled with cherished memories and inspiration shared amongst our Bella Grace community! At the beginning of the year, we celebrated National Handwriting Day together and during Springtime we excitedly announced The Cozy Issue Volume 2. In July, we shared the first installment of the Bella Poet Society then a few months later, warmly welcomed the magic of hygge when Autumn arrived. The end of the year was filled with festivities as we invited our community to participate in the Self-Portrait Challenge, released the second installment of The Cozy Issue, and hosted 12 days of holiday giveaways! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such a wonderful year, dear friends. Here’s a little look back at a few of the special moments we shared on social media last year…
Ever since I first learned about Ali Edwards’s “One Little Word,” I’ve chosen a single word to guide me through the New Year. Rather than make a list of specific resolutions I’ll likely never keep, I instead check in with myself and ask if my actions are aligning with my chosen word. As the year winds down, I like to ask myself what I feel I need more of in the coming year and jot down a few words that come to mind. This year, I’ve broken the rules a little. I’ve chosen three little words that, when spoken together, feel like a short mantra: Simple, Savor, Slow.
