Witchy Vibes

I love October. I love the season. It’s probably my favorite. I like the idea of leaves changing to beautiful colors and different shades of the same colors and then, one day, just falling off trees with no destination in mind. I feel like the leaves let the trees have some alone time, some rest, so they can gain strength again to come back in the Spring with more energy and zest for life. Continue reading “Witchy Vibes”

Spots of Joy

When thinking about happiness, a vision of shiny happy people may pop into most people’s heads. But over the years, life has shown me that the happiest looking people are usually the most sad. Most really good comedians have deep bouts with depression. Often people talk about someone that committed suicide unexpectedly as if they were the happiest people they knew. So smiling all the time is not a good sign of happiness in my opinion.

The Secret To A Happy Life

According to Deepak Chopra, the secret to a happy life is…to recognize that no matter what the situation is, there is a creative opportunity in it. It is also finding meaning and purpose in your life to make a contribution and ultimately the secret is to make other people happy. Continue reading “The Secret To A Happy Life”

Living in the Present Moment

It’s hard to think of a time when I was filled with inner joy in the last few years. I do remember what that used to feel like. But it seems like forever since I felt it. I am dead inside. I no longer care about most things. Yet I know in the depth of my soul that I am meant to do something great with my life. I don’t think I am special. I think all humans are meant to do something great and each of us have different gifts that we bring to the table. Continue reading “Living in the Present Moment”

Grateful

Looking back at this year, I am so thankful. Not sure if maybe rectifying a family relationship that was broken helped, but I am so thankful for the abundance I tapped into this year. I feel that abundance is always available to all of us. I think that, sometimes, we get in our own way (I get in my own way at least). Or go about it the wrong way. Continue reading “Grateful”

Free Writing

Started off the year with consistent writing…but hardly made it 6 months and I stopped. I start and I stop. I have no consistency in anything except the ability to be inconsistent. It baffles me honestly, because my personality is often very anal retentive, so one would think that consistency would be a given. But it feels like I am incapable of being consistent…except, as mentioned, in my inconsistency…because that has definitely been a constant my entire life. Continue reading “Free Writing”

Why Telling Me To Reach Out Doesn’t Actually Help…

So eloquently put…I too cringed when I saw all the recent posts about “reaching out” “just get help”…this blog post explains so well why that just won’t work, but more importantly, suggests things that may actually work!

Life, Love, Adventure

In light of recent high profile suicides it’s impossible to scroll through our newsfeed, go online or turn on the tv without seeing hashtags, videos, guidelines and stories being shared to spread awareness of suicide and mental illness. Raising awareness is a positive and necessary step because resources are shared and stigma is reduced.  

But for those who are already dealing with mental illness the reality is many of these things being shared aren’t helpful despite everyone’s good intentions. After seeing endless posts over the past several days I’m left with the verdict that yes we are talking about suicide more (or it’s getting more press) but the majority of people still don’t get what it really takes to help. Using a new hashtag, changing your profile pic in support of mental health, wearing safety pins or copying and pasting declarations about how people should speak up and reach…

Our Reasons

There are days when simply getting out of bed is a monumental task. Thinking and overthinking without respite used to be so debilitating. One day…or over time…I learned how to push away those thoughts, how to shut them down, stuff them away and ctrl+alt+ del them from my brain. I became so good at this. At first it was so liberating because along with this new skill, I also deleted anxiety from my life. I deleted worry from my life. It was so amazing to sleep without worry.

Healing

They say that if you heal your deepest wound, you will find your life’s purpose.  By healing yourself, you will be able to heal others. As a lightworker you agreed to come to this world to complete a task. But once here, we all forget why we came.  So some of us, may find our way to our purpose through our own healing.
