Per my usual it is start over time. I feel like I am constantly starting over. Every little thing seems to throw me off for the past few years and I don’t get it, so time to ground and center and get back to being me. The whole teach online thing, though, that was crazy. I stopped all online activity except teaching and creating because I was screen weary at the end of the day/week. That is where I was at. Now, it I summer and I have taken a week to not do anything. Time to get back at … Continue reading And Just Like That…
I love it when I do multiple things, pull cards from multiple decks, or different kinds of decks and the whole world just connects itself to the energy. It has not been an easy start to the year 2020. With the word of the year being LOOK, and me taking the time to really look at what is around me, and within me, I realized how much work there is. That of course overwhelmed me, so I had to pull back and think a little about how to approach it all. Today was the first day I pulled any cards. … Continue reading When It All Connects
Yes I know it is the trend, but I love the trend. No resolutions, although I have some goals (pretty typical ones), but I also have the word I will be keeping close to me. My word: LOOK You’re saying “What?! Heather you are crazy, how is that even a word to choose from?” Well I am here to tell you why it is what I think is going to be a great word for me. LOOK is so much more than just using your eyes. When we want someone to explain their feelings, or search for what is going … Continue reading My Word for 2020!
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?
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
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
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
