Or so the cards all told me today. This morning both Judgment and The World appeared, right after Networking was the word of the day. All 3 of these cards revolve around starting something new. Stating that I have finished a cycle and need to stretch out and reach beyond those I see everyday. So I suppose that means I need to be looking for what has finished (as it wasn’t super obvious), and begin peering into the future for what it is I am going to be starting next. I did begin networking a little more this morning (before … Continue reading Done!
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!
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
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
It is that time. Samhain has been celebrated in the most glorious of fashions and now we run across the holidays that seem to all be crammed into a tight space. Veteran’s Day was fabulous, with thanks given to those in our lives, and simply to those in general, who served. This is always a favorite of mine as my dad and my father-in-law served, as well as many others I know, and my son is currently serving. After that brief flash of inspiration though, we begin the American Thanksgiving, Yule, Christmas, New Year’s crush of depression, weight of the … Continue reading Holiday Season Blahs
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?
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…
Create space for you to be you! Don’t let the world outside take over everything. Purposefully create a space that is yours alone, that you can breathe in, decompress in, and center in. This is a space that helps you balance, gives you a moment to ground yourself and remember who you are, what is important to you, and why you matter. Never doubt that you are loved, that you are needed, and that you are an integral part of the world. When you begin to, head for that space that you have created for you. Balance, center, ground and … Continue reading Create Space
So the thing is, I always find myself at a loss when someone perceives something I’ve done or said as racist or from their own inherent bias. I try, as a high school teacher especially, to make sure that I am always seeing things from as many angles and sides as I possibly can. Now I will never assume to be able to see things from a different color, that is not even possible. I do know when you come into my classroom though that you will be treated equally to everyone else. With that said, when I have to … Continue reading Create Space…and Time
