Who Are You?

As we sit in our offices, on our couches, in our cars, at our desks, we define ourselves in different ways. These are often simple masks we wear to fit what it is others expect of us, or that we must project based on the situation. All totally understandable, but what happens when you begin to lose who you are to these masks? When you forget to take one mask off before donning another, and they blend to a point where you can’t get out from under either? These are scary questions, as I often feel this way. I have … Continue reading Who Are You?

You Are A Peaceful Being!

That is today’s message and daily intention. The message comes from the Oracle of the DragonFae and became a perfect daily intention for a Friday before a 4 day weekend. As we are settling into our morning here, and my 1st period class is almost done until next Wednesday, I decided to reflect on the message of the card I pulled today. Apalala – You are a peaceful being. The DragonFae Apalala and Buddha learned much from one another, including where to focus their energy. Today that message is meant to show us that it is making the peaceful moments … Continue reading You Are A Peaceful Being!

Sometimes, it is difficult. When your body hurts, when you have a headache, or something isn’t functioning right it is difficult to remember that we … Continue reading The Human Experience

I Control My Perspective

What I see, how I see it, what is makes me feel/think, that is all within my control. There is nothing buy my own thoughts, feelings, and look on the world that tells me how to see something, except of course when I allow those things to jade me. We often want others to tell us what they see, or to let us know when we see something different. The problem with that is that it can skew our own perception, influencing us to see things that aren’t there, or that aren’t accurate. When we rely on our own instincts, … Continue reading I Control My Perspective

Reminders…already

Today was the first day back to the real job, no students yet, but here I am, fixing up the classroom and getting ready. I teach at a school that is on a 4×4 block, meaning I have all new kids tomorrow, and new classes. So daunting to have two first days in a school year, but I’ve doing this for 7 years now, and getting used to the daunting is old hat. What I am also used to is the apathy and blah I feel when it is time, after the break, to come back. This has, unfortunately led … Continue reading Reminders…already
