Happy New Year! 

January (in Latin, Ianuarius) is named after the Latin word for door (ianua), since January is the door to the year and an opening to new beginnings. The month is conventionally thought of as being named after Janus, the god of beginnings and transitions in Roman mythology. It is, on average, the coldest month of the year within most of the Northern Hemisphere (where it is the second month of winter) and the warmest month of the year within most of the Southern Hemisphere (where it is the second month of summer).

Universal Children’s Day

Women Who Rock Our World 2019 wall calendar

Image from our Women Who Rock Our World 2019 wall calendar featuring artwork by Rachel Grant. Click for more info.

Celebrated on November 20th each year, Universal Children’s Day was established in 1954 by the United Nations. This special day is an opportunity to promote international togetherness and focus on improving children’s welfare. Since 1990, Universal Children’s Day also marks the anniversary of the date that the UN General Assembly adopted both the declaration and the convention on children’s rights.

Here’s more info about this special day from the United Nation’s website:

Mothers and fathers, teachers, nurses and doctors, government leaders and civil society activists, religious and community elders, corporate moguls and media professionals as well as young people and children themselves can play an important part in making Universal Children’s Day relevant for their societies, communities and nations.

Universal Children’s Day offers each of us an inspirational entry-point to advocate, promote and celebrate children’s rights, translating into dialogues and actions that will build a better world for Children.

We want to build a world where every child is in school, safe from harm and can fulfil their potential, and we know you do too.

2018: Children are taking over and turning the world blue

World Kindness Day — Make Kindness the Norm

Katie Daisy 2019 wall calendar

Image from our Katie Daisy 2019 wall calendar. Click for more info.

World Kindness Day is an international observance on November 13. It was introduced in 1998 by the World Kindness Movement. Today we’re invited to highlight good deeds that focus on the positive power and common thread of kindness that binds us regardless of race, religion, politics, gender, or zip codes.

The Random Acts of Kindness blog has a wonderful post encouraging us to make kindness the norm. Here’s an excerpt:

When a moment of kindness appears, it’s as if a fog has been lifted… just for a moment. It’s lovely. It makes us feel good. We smile. But, then the fog rolls back in and we go back to the norm of our daily lives.

But, what if we started being intentional about not only noticing and absorbing them when they happen to us, but creating those moments for others? What if we made it a point to go slightly outside of our comfort zone at least once a day to make someone smile? To share a compliment with a co-worker or friend? To reach out to a family member we haven’t spoken to in awhile? What if we stopped thinking about them as random acts of kindness and started thinking about them as intentional acts of kindness?

We love this idea of making kindness the norm in our daily lives. It’s a beautiful way to bring mindfulness into our words and actions. The Random Acts of Kindness website also has some fantastic ideas to get us started.

New 2019 Wall Calendar — Wild Woman Rising

Wild Woman Rising 2019 wall calendar

Who is the wild woman? She’s the grit and grace inside that insists we claim our voice, trust our instinct, and fearlessly cast off forces that insist on perfection and oppression. She will not allow the plundering of the divine feminine or our natural resources. She will not be tamed. We crave her protection and we long to bask in her healing presence. We bravely step up, howling with the insistence that we will no longer live without her. We brazenly demand a fulfilling life, one in which we embrace our true essence. She will rise and so shall we. For there is no force more powerful than a determined woman.

Sophie Wilkins’s evocative illustrations are ripe with symbolism. Wilkins explores the myriad expressions of the divine feminine with animal guides as companions. Writer Angi Sullins implores us to cultivate a sanctuary for the wild woman in homes, studios, gardens, and boardrooms around the planet and in the depths of our souls.
