I have never been a person to stay up till midnight on New Year’s Eve. This year won’t be any different in that aspect. I’m just not a late night person. But I did make intentful actions today.
The archetypes of customers
For those who don’t know, I currently work retail. I actually enjoy it, except for those customers who just make retail the unique experience it is.
Does anyone blog just to blog these days?
Working with shadows
There are a few things about those who follow pagan/witchcraft beliefs that I find confusing, or I don’t understand how they came to be correlated with the practice. I think the oddest one is “shadow work”.
Of plans and productivity
The time between Christmas and New Year’s is always an ambiguous time. You are preparing to start the new year with new ambitions and goals, while reconciling the past year with what you want in the coming future. It’s a time of questioning, making attempts to establish ideas, and looking forward to what can be and how to get there.
We all fall down
We had our first snow of the year. I love snow. I don’t think I will ever not like snow. Last week, we got 8 inches of it. Outside of the 36 inches we got one year all in one night, that is the most snow that has fallen since I moved here 5 years ago.
Projection: It’s not just for movies!
As I mentioned earlier, my family, particularly on my mother’s side, is rife with mental illnesses. It is one of the bigget hurdles I have to deal with on a fairly regular basis, and it isn’t alway my own mental health that’s the problem.
The first snow
Today is the first snowstorm of the season. Last year, we had very little snow overall, so it’s exciting to know the potential for a foot or more of snow is coming. Having been born and raised in Southern California, snow is something I absolutely love. I love wrapping myself up in a warm blanket or robe and enjoying my cottage to the fullest.
A little bit of spirit
Under most circumstances, I don’t make fun of people’s beliefs, because, honestly, I don’t think anyone has it right. I just worry about those whose beliefs become their whole idently (and that goes for anything, not just religion) because that isn’t healthy. Beliefs should enhance your life, not dictate it
Darker than the darkness
Since about August, I have been battling depression. Thanks to a long legacy of mental illness, just in my mother’s lineage alone, it is a condition that I have been in and out of most of my life.
