Tuesday as Monday…

So here we are, the first work day of my week. I have now been hit with 3 surprises, and some conflicting information. Always fun. Good thing my word for the day was Focus, and my card pull was The High Priestess. I put my focus word to good use. Closed out all the apps I was using to distract myself, grabbed some quartz to carry around and use as a focus object, and got to work making sure I was totally prepared for the rest of the week. Now I can make sure that the new student teachers I … Continue reading Tuesday as Monday…

End of Year Reflection (short)

As I was recovering from the flu/pneumonia bout, I went back to work as it was close to finals and I was starting to miss those Seniors. In the process, they brought germs! So I was sick again. However, as I sit here over break I find that I am almost ready to recover. I need a little more sleep, a little more down time, and some more restful moments, but then I will be ready to take on 2020! I already have topics planned, for the days I am not using a daily draw card, but I am planning … Continue reading End of Year Reflection (short)

Blessed Imbolc….Blessed Candlemas

Brigid has lit the way for us to begin the lighted season of our year. What a wonderful time this will. As we say goodbye to Herne for the moment, and allow him the rest he so deserves, and the candles are lit to guide the light back into the world, we are all getting ready to let go of the shadows and step into the light. If you walk a pagan/Wiccan path then today is the day to bless your candles for the year. The time to give them the energy of the beginning of the light time and … Continue reading Blessed Imbolc….Blessed Candlemas

End of the month reflection…

So, here we are, at the end of January. I am at a conference tomorrow and am not sure how much time I will have or if I will have any time to get a blog post up, so I am reflecting and writing today. It was a great month, a tough month, a look at yourself month, a begin again and then again month. In short, it was a typical January. The good thing about Januarys is that they are followed by Februarys. The shortest month of the year, the best month to keep going, because it is easier … Continue reading End of the month reflection…

There is always someone who has your back…

even if it is the energy surrounding you. You are never alone, even though you may feel like it. Situations arise and often we feel that there is no one who will support us through it, but the fact is, we don’t need someone to support us through it. If we just work hard through it, put good energy out about it (whether an outcome, or getting out of, or a gentle goodbye), we will find ourselves on the other side of it without needing anyone else. Now that isn’t to say having someone else there would be nice. We … Continue reading There is always someone who has your back…

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
