An intention is your why behind everything you do.
It sets the tone for your day! Your days create your weeks, your weeks create your months, and your months create your year.
So every day, you have a choice... How do you want your year to be?
What if I told you that I've created something that will keep your intention alive all year long?
An intention is defined as an aim or a plan, a goal or a target. Your brain loves having a goal to work towards. How many times do we start the day with good intentions and slowly spiral into chaos? Usually, we're focusing on what we don't like or what we don't want, and guess what happens? More of that keeps showing up.
A touchstone is defined as a fundamental or quintessential part or feature. I want you to be able to literally hold your word in your hand as a stone you can touch that becomes a fundamental part of your day. My hope is that this will help you keep your goals and intentions at the front of your thoughts so that you can quickly and easily reset back to your intention when your mind wanders astray.
Just imagine holding your intention in your hand. Running your fingers over the letters. Absorbing your word into your being. Slipping the word inside your pocket and carrying it with you all day so when you lose sight of your intention, you can reach your hand inside your pocket, breathe... and reset back to your intent.
Begin your day with thinking about your intention, and set the tone for your day.
That is why I created Intentional Touchstones! I wanted a tangible way to get your word in your hands. Each ceramic touchstone and mug is hand-made by me. From my hand to yours. I touch each one, cut them into shapes, stamp or hand-letter and then stamp your word into each one, smooth the edges, sign and date the bottom, fire them, glaze each one by hand, and fire them again so they can really last a lifetime unless they are dropped or broken.
So here's the deal...
You get to choose your word for the year, month, week, whatever you want! Think of your word from the perspective of how you want to feel at the end of every day, week, month, and year! Try to imagine one word that can encompass that feeling. What do you want more of in your life? Maybe this year you want to focus on Love, Faith, Freedom, Hope, Gratitude, Peace, Kindness, Heart, Grace... or...? What do YOU want?
Now, do you have your word? Awesome! Let's create your touchstone!
