Happy New Year!

My goodness! I can’t believe we haven’t spoken since 2018! I hope that you effectively closed the chapter that was 2018 and opened the chapter that is 2019. The beginnings of things and the endings of things are important.

I am super excited to share that this past Saturday I hosted my first face-to-face Spell Well Event in partnership with AARP. The event was called Manifest 2019: Vision Board Party. We had around 20 guests, provided all of the materials (cork bords, push pins, magazines, markers, cute frameable quotes, YOU NAME IT!) and we had food and a Mimosa Bar! The event was held at the beautiful Evolve Her space, which is a co-working space for women in downtown Chicago.

We are hosting a 2nd Vision Board Workshop this Saturday to accommodate those who were not able to participate in the first one. Register for free here.

Also, the “blog” section is now alive on Spell Well! It’s called “Manifest” check it out here:

I will also have some exciting Art of Culture news to announce soon! Like MAJOR! Just thinking about it brings tears to my eyes. The news will come out in February! Stay tuned!

I feel in total and complete alignment as it relates to my physical, mental, spiritual and emotional health and because of that MANIFESTATION is at an all time high for me right now. There isn’t too much of a gap between what I think about and what I experience. That is the mission of Spell Well – to help us close the gap between our reality and our dreams.

Next week will be my 35th Solar Return! I have been blessed to travel around the sun for almost 35 years! That is roughly 12,775 days! 153,300 hours. What a blessing! So many people who I know and respect have been passing away and it is a reminder to me that every single day is a gift, that the thing that truly matters in the end is how we treat others, and that we have to make the most of every single second we have. My word for 2019 is abundance (which I share with my friend Heather, HEY HEATHER!) and I have to say that I have been experiencing that in so many ways!

I am rich in love!

I am rich in laughter!

I am rich in space that is warm, inspiring and reflective of the things that I care about!

I am rich in worth! The people that I love make me feel like I am needed, wanted and valued.

I am rich in family! Both blood related and the family I choose (my friends).

I am rich in impact! From my former students, to my Art of Culture (formerly Donda’s House) participants, to people in the nonprofit space who I’ve supported.

I am rich in creativity!

I am rich in mental capacity and emotional capacity!

I am rich in my basic needs! I can turn on lights. I can do laundry in my home. When I want to go somewhere I get into a vehicle that is free of issues that effortlessly takes me from point A to point B.

I am rich in faith. I am rich in hope. I am rich in positive energy!

I could go on and on! What a blessing that I have so much wealth and so much abundance that I can’t event count it all!

I will be sharing my 35 lessons starting tomorrow here on the blog and on social media. Sending you love, light and digital hugs!

Donnie
