Create Space

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

Create Space…and Time

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

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…

Productivity

In short, I feel most productive when… If you had to answer that what would your answer be? Would it be when all the tasks are done? When you are actively doing something on the to be done list? When your body is moving? When your brain is moving? I have realized that I don’t really know what the word means to me. One of the questions on the #highperformanceplanner from #brendonburchard is “If one word could describe the type of person you want to be today [sic]”…and I tend to write productive…and then for the question about how I … Continue reading Productivity

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…

Healing is a Process

I haven’t pulled a card yet for today. I’m going to…and I’ll add it to the post before I publish. I wanted to just get a few thoughts down before I did anything else. It has not been easy. It has also only been a few days, even though we knew about 12 hours before the real decline that it was coming. I was able to process and be calm, call on the spirits to help him cross peacefully, and to bring healing energy to my husband and I and the house before it even happened. Even with my own … Continue reading Healing is a Process

We are what we expect…

Yep…what we put out there, is usually what we can expect to get back. That sucks on those bad days, or those emotional days. We never know what it is going to look like. And trying to hold it in, well that doesn’t work either, cause energy doesn’t stay encased. This isn’t the post I was expecting either on Monday or Today. I will be back tomorrow. We had to let our English Mastiff go over the rainbow yesterday and it is taking a few days of adjustment and to grieve. I promise, tomorrow… Continue reading We are what we expect…
