Hello! I am so excited to be here again. I am working on getting a schedule down. I don’t have it quite yet, but I promise it will be more regular, even if it is just a quick recipe for an upcoming Sabbat, or a happy Full Moon Blessings. Right now, I have just received the landscaping plans for my back yard and I can’t be more excited because there is going to be a fire pit/altar area in the back of it which means I will have some outdoor area that will be dedicated to practicing my way of … Continue reading New Space
So the great thing about where I work is that we have these random weeks off. Not just the standard school breaks at the holidays, but weeks in the middle of February, which is awesome! This past week my husband and I went to New Orleans. We got there on a Saturday early afternoon and left Thursday late. This meant that we got to the enjoy the Mardi Gras spirit and early parades without the craziness of all the 20 somethings during actual Mardi Gras weekend. It was amazing. I have never been, so we literally spend 5 days in … Continue reading Vacation was fabulous!
Listen. So today’s Word of the Day is Outlets. That is in reference to doing things outside of what causes you stress! That’s right, I was told by the Universe to go out and be creative; to allow those things that are building up inside of me to flow freely and in the process get better at something, or create something, or simply move so that th energy isn’t staying pent up. What perfect timing as the extra assignment I got is not going well, and causing extreme stress. So what is it I want to do today? Well I … Continue reading The Universe is Speaking…
So I know it is a bit cliche, but with the week I’ve had. Let’s just say that the trouble with getting trouble is it doesn’t change, and that continues to be the case. However, my word for the day, by choice, is resilience. The ability to power through, carry on, be better, grow, move forward, and in general, get to the wine portion of the day. Of course, I drew later in the day when I was calmer in state of mind, and out pops this adorable Knight of Wands, saying “hey, I have great things coming and you … Continue reading Fri-Yay!
Yep, that’s the word of the day. It applies to so many things, so wherever you are, apply it to that. For me, it simply meant not calling in a sub and going back to sleep. Although, I think the kids wish I had. I am going to make it through the day, and I am hoping to come again tomorrow, making it the first two days in a row this week. I have not been this sick in years. I’m not sure I’ve ever been this sick when it wasn’t a surgery related incident. I am not sure how … Continue reading Tenacity
Today, the DragonFae that showed up was Drystan – the resident bad boy/trickster who is honest about who he is, even when we don’t want to believe him. Reminding us all that not everything is always as it seems, and we have misplaced our faith in someone or in a situation, that is not what we thought it was. This is always a tough one. In my own life, trying to see what he is referring to I am almost at a loss, although my mundane job does lend itself with both situations and people, to this little DragonFae, I … Continue reading Look Beneath the Surface
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!
I am excited to be back writing, growing, and feeling like me. It has been a long season as my children had to find themselves, causing heartache and growing pains alike. One of the things I had promised myself was after I was feeling stable, I would begin here. Once a week to start, as I am just getting myself back from being overly invested in a number of things and losing myself to them. I actually took a day off work two weeks ago to simply clean my room and bathroom. I was hoping to get the whole house … Continue reading New Adventures
Some days working with teenagers invigorates me and creates a sense of energy that I can use to get through several days, other times working with teenagers drains me of the energy I had to make it to the next day, leaving exhausted for days on end. Every day working with teenagers I learn something about them, myself, and the world. High school students have a unique perspective on what is happening in the world, their lives, the classroom, and even, yes, their teachers’ lives. They bring such a different look into what is going on. Today my students are … Continue reading Working With Teenagers
Somehow I cannot seem to get well. While it is just a little head cold this time, it is once again slowing me down. I am so glad I have my #highperformaceplanner from #brendanbruchard so that I can at least stay on track at work, and track what isn’t getting done so that I can get it done once I feel better. We are getting to the end of the semester here, so finals and then grading are going to be my priority for the next week so that at least the job I’m paid for is done. I am … Continue reading Sick Again…
