Setting Intentions

Oh...I should post an entry. But it's the holidays. Not that I'm off celebrating much. It's just the week between Christmas and New Years. Work is slow - and so am I.

It's nice to be lazy sometimes. Especially with gray days that make it much easier to lay around watching mindless TV, reading Emmanuel and mastering a new obsession, Tangrams (contributed by Robbie).

I've also come deeply into the knowing that I need a new guitar. I've toyed with the idea long enough. It's time to start saving. I just can't play this one anymore. It's so dull that it actually turns me away from wanting to play. A different guitar, with different energy, is top on my list. Don't let me buy anything else before I get a new guitar.

It's a few days before another new year. I can hardly believe how quickly time flies lately. It's that time again to reflect on the past year and set intentions for the coming year. Letting go of things no longer needed or beneficial to growth, and welcoming in new energy for continued growth.

Last year I shed a tumor that had been weighing on my heart (physically behind my ear) for a few years. I shed mono and depression. I shed obsessive behavior. Well, much of it.

This year I intend to shed debt and the fear of collection agencies. I intend to shed the need to rescue poor defenseless bunnies. I intend to shed the notion that my life is meant to be slightly above mediocre.

I welcome new energy in the physical form. I welcome a boost in business or easy career change. I welcome abundance in love and money, freeing my creativity. I welcome a deep sense of commitment and determination that allows me to follow through with my creative endeavors.

Well, that's a start. Guess I had more to say than I thought.

Trish, have you had your axe in to a good lutier to see if anything can be done for the old girl? It's amazing what can be done in the way of a professional tuning up of a guitar.

Now, if it's truly "guitar envy" you be suffering, I do understand. I was fortunate enough to have both Martins and Gibsons around the house in the '70's that belonged to semi-pro roommates and lovers. Sure beat the dreck I learned to strum on. Life has never been the same since...

I bought guitars for the two little ones over here. The youngest got a cheapy from Target, the oldest got one from an actual guitar shop.

I so understand about the energy. I try to rid myself of poison all the time, and this week, I am trying extra hard.

Here is sending you energy so you can keep the creative juices flowing.

I swear 2006 is gonna rock. I can feel it. We've all got so many exciting things just over the horizon, and this is going to be THE year, I just know it.

Here's to new-found energy and positive outlooks.

Wil, Good idea. I've had this guitar fixed up a few times over the years. Lowered the action, added a pick-up/pre-amp, fixed the warped neck, added a strap peg. It could use another tune up, I'm sure. But it's 25 yrs old. It's my first guitar. I wouldn't give it up, but I would like a new one to add to the family. I know you can understand that. I have Taylor and Takamine envy.


Blogger Heather said ... (9:48 AM) : 

Aww! I think 2006 will be a great year for you. (and Hunny too!) I think it's been a rough couple of months for everyone, and now we're ready to start the new year right. I know I am very excited for this new change, and this new year.


Blogger sunflowerkat said ... (12:56 PM) : 

This is the way to think of a new generalities that can make a difference. Way to go Trish. I'm sure that 2006 has some good things in store for you.


Blogger Becky said ... (3:15 AM) : 

Do you have any pawn shops in the vacinity? You might want to dig through them to find your guitar. There are too many desperate and broke musicians in this world, sadly. :-/


Blogger tiny dancer said ... (7:59 AM) : 

Who the hell is THAT little hottie you're posting pics of? Seriously woman! You look great! WORK IT!

You've been talking about a new guitar for a while and if a new guitar will bring us one step closer to a new Trish Monaco Album...then hell yah! I support you.

Good vibes floating your way~!
