Being Present

Where are you? Physically? What is the space you are in? Can you describe it? Are you really there? Do you know the people around you? Do you care to? With today’s face paced technology and connectivity to, people we know, social media and live feeds, we are very often not present in mind even if we are in body. We might be sitting in a classroom, or at work, or even out to lunch or dinner with someone and yet we aren’t really there. We have been allowed over the past 10 years to become less and less present … Continue reading Being Present

The Wiccan Rede and What It Means To Me

The Wiccan Rede…the tenet by which those who practice most forms of Wicca try their best to stay within. Not everyone, not daily, but as a principal in general to live by, it isn’t too bad. I have pasted it here for you to look at before I go into some areas ca little deeper: The Wiccan Rede (Full Version) Bide the Wiccan Laws we must In Perfect Love and Perfect Trust. Live and let live. Fairly take and fairly give. Cast the Circle thrice about to keep the evil spirits out. To bind the spell every time let the … Continue reading The Wiccan Rede and What It Means To Me

Cleaning and Decluttering

I had hoped to talk about the Wiccan Rede  today. I had grand plans and lofty goals of getting through our bedroom quickly and on with the rest of the day. Unfortunately my darling husband had insomnia so we were up until 4:30 this  morning. This meant sleeping later than I usually do. The only good part of that was family brunch!!! Yummy recipe I tried that even the teenagers liked. Proceeding upstairs since today was clean the bedroom/office (we have a double master so it has many functions) for the new year we dug in, starting at noon. It … Continue reading Cleaning and Decluttering

Play Dates!!!

This is yesterday’s blog this morning. The reason? Family time and Date Night. Those are two very important things. One thing I have learned through the trials and tribulations of being an adult is to make time for your relationship. Family time is important, but so is your relationship. In the middle of being so busy with everything else from work to extras to everyday stuff, we often forget to feed our relationships. This will cause strife, tension and disconnection. Taking time for the two of you is very important. When all the rest of it fades off there is … Continue reading Play Dates!!!

Overload…

AHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! Have you ever just wanted to scream at the top of your lungs from overload?  It just seems that everything is too much, even getting up in the morning?  I think we all have if we are honest, at least with ourselves, even if we don’t voice it. Yesterday I talked about working and “working”.  Taking it all on and maybe too much.  Luckily for me right now it isn’t, but I know people who do.  However, that doesn’t mean that I don’t still feel overwhelmed with what I have to do.  Sometimes my to do list is a … Continue reading Overload…

Working and “Working”

  So today I wanted to take a moment to address those who take on much,  not necessarily  too much, but maybe sometimes we take it all on.  I know that I work full-time as a high school teacher, who gives my personal number to the kids and other teachers, as well as email of course. I am also part of an amazing online magickal school, Sacred Mists. I have been a part of Sacred Mists for 6 years.  I have completed my Level One and Level Two Priestess courses and am currently working on my Level Three.  With that … Continue reading Working and “Working”

Pressing On…

Today is the 4th…and it is the day where most have already hit the wall. Change is hard, sustained change is a challenge.  We all want to be the best us we can be. There is no doubt about that, but finding out who that is, what it looks like and then becoming that person, wow… difficult. One step at a time.  That is all any of us can do.  I talked yesterday about feeling falsely successful, and thinking enough.  Today is the day where you look beyond that and continue forward.  You press on with the change you want … Continue reading Pressing On…

Feeling Successful – Falsely

Today was a great day!  I set out to do 6 things on my list and I got them all done!  I am a success! Yes! I’m Great! Wouldn’t that be an awesome thing to say and think and feel.  Well for me it is true.  I did get everything done today that I set out to do, including going to my tattoo appointment alone, something I hadn’t done before.  I am having my entire back and butt covered with a personal image the artist plucked from my mind.  I hate pain and this is my first tattoo, so usually … Continue reading Feeling Successful – Falsely

Planning, Planning, Planning

As someone who works hard to be organized, I have discovered some things work and some things don’t.  I can plan all I want, but if I don’t follow through with the planning it just looks pretty.  So I continue to search for a method, a planner, a thought process that will help me actually follow through.  It takes 21 days to set a habit, so I need to follow-through for 21 days to set the habit of continuing to follow through. With that in mind I have ordered 3 new planners.  I have an amazing one now done by … Continue reading Planning, Planning, Planning

A Successful Day

Follow my blog with Bloglovin While today was not as efficient as I perhaps would have liked…we did get a lot done.  Small things matter too. one thing I discovered was Bloglovin.  This is a new site for me and I am excited to see how it goes. These are new and scary days for me, but what life’s all about.  So with the intent of Follow Through for my year, and all those goals I set, this is just one step, in what I hope is the right direction. What did you do today to help yourself stay on … Continue reading A Successful Day
