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.

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”

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.

Time

Lately I feel like I have been on a fast moving train or on one of those super fast elevators. Once you get off of either of those, you look around and can’t believe how much you have traveled without losing any time at all. You look back and two seconds ago you were somewhere completely different. Not sure if everyone feels this or if I have been living under a rock and just suddenly climbed out all by myself. Lately I have met some milestones like 10 years in my current profession. Or I have seen a headline that something happened 9 years ago, when in my head it happened last year. Or I see kids that were babies last week turning 8 years old. My Air Conditioner is from 2006, which I have always been clear about because it was an ordeal to get it replaced and in my head, I always think I have a “brand new” Air Conditioner…but doing the numbers…it is currently 12 years old! I look at pictures of myself and think I look the same but then I do the math and I am floored that the picture I am looking at was taken 18 years ago. Continue reading “Time”

Home Of The Brave, Land Of The Free

The overall mood after each school shooting (or any shooting) is different. I remember Columbine in 1999. It was the first one I was old enough to be fully aware of. I remember the feelings of despair, of rage, of disbelief, of frustration, of sadness, of fear. I remember Katie Couric from The Today Show interviewing the survivors the next day. I remember crying with them. I remember I could barely sleep for some time after that day. I remember thinking that something would change, that something would be done, that our leaders would act with swiftness to keep us safe. I remember thinking we lived in the United States of America, and these things were not supposed to happen. We take care of each other. No man left behind. “They” will do whatever is necessary to keep us safe. Continue reading “Home Of The Brave, Land Of The Free”

#MeToo

This movement is pretty bizarre if you analyze it. At least to me. I guess depending on how you look at things, anything can become the opposite of what it is intended to do. I think women and men have a difficult time navigating through this movement, just like they have had a tough time navigating through many shifts that have taken place in our world at different times.
