As another year approaches, many of us choose a word or symbol to represent an intention for the new year. While it may still be a bit early for that as we’re only halfway through October, I happened to notice a figurine while browsing on Amazon last week that felt just right for how I’d like next year to go! So I went ahead and bought it, found a place for it in a sunny room where I’ll see it regularly, and took this photo.

Figurine of fairy holding small white dragon. 

The title is Release Dreams Fairy Holding Dragon (I’ve made that into a link to the Amazon page for anyone who might be interested).  It gives me a lovely visual reminder of what I want to do in the upcoming year—release my dreams to fly free and grow into something beautiful! And I do believe that seeing it every day will keep my thoughts focused on bringing more positive, creative energy into my life.

  1. What a beautiful, whimsical ornament, Meg, combining fairies and dragons ~ how could it NOT work! 🙂

  2. What a beautiful intention and perfect time of year to set it! Thanks for sharing your inspiration with everyone! 🙂

  3. HI Meg, love it so much! The figurine is beautiful, it’s magical! I did get a word for this year, my word is Magic. I love your idea of getting a solid symbol for it. And the year is really almost ending, I should choose a word for next year soon, and maybe get a figurine for it as you did. Thanks for the lovely idea.

    • Magic certainly makes a great intention — I hope you’re finding lots of it! Best wishes in both choosing a word for next year and finding a symbol that fits! 🙂

  4. Setting forth your intention is part of the process — your new figurine is magical and provides you a visual for the course! Delightful! Thank you for sharing! 😀

  5. I love this and love Nurturing Thursdays. I will look up her blog. Thank you for making my day.
