Moving forward

So today I did a lot of self care and keeping the house organized.  This is really helping me feel good.
I had a great therapy session and my therapist feels I am much more relaxed.  I feel relaxed too!  I am trying to stay on top of things because I get depressed when I don't.  Here is hoping the rest of today is as good as the first part.

Balance

I have been struggling with balancing my life.  I am one of those people who is often an all or very little person.  When I get tired or depressed or my body is hurting, I struggle to do even the basics.  The house gets messy quickly, everything gets backlogged and so forth.

But then I get energy back or feel better and suddenly I have a really good day of cleaning and I am able to keep up for a few days or weeks and then I slide back.  I am trying to find the balance - today I am soar because yesterday I cleaned house for 8+ hours - so today I am taking it easier and picking up and keeping things clean but not taking on huge projects.

Although I took care of 2 annoying things.   The Master Bath Toilet whistled loudly every time you flushed it so I took care of that and our alarm was telling us the keypad had low batteries so I took care of that.  Let's hope I can keep up with things for a bit.

Full Storm Moon







March rolls in like the proverbial lion, and if we're really lucky, it might go out like a lamb. It's the time of the Storm Moon, the month when Spring finally arrives, around the time of the Equinox, and we see new life begin to spring forth. As the Wheel of the Year turns once more, heavy rains and gray skies abound -- the earth is being showered with the life-giving water it needs to have a fertile and healthy growing season.

This is also a time of equal parts light and darkness, and so a time of balance.Depending on where you live, this moon may be called the Seed Moon, Lenten Moon, or Chaste Moon. Polly Taskey at Pagan by Design says, "Anglo-Saxons called it Hraed-monat (rugged month), or Hlyd-monat (stormy month). A stormy March was an omen of poor crops, while a dry March indicated a rich harvest. Some books refer to February as the "Storm Month," however, I find this inaccurate. Where I live, March often IS stormy, and as the old wives tale goes, “in like a lion, out like a lamb.”As always, your March might not see the same weather as other people's, because your environment depends on a number of factors. If you need to adapt March's magical correspondences to those of a different month, then feel free to do so.

For me I am working on finding the in between of self-care and hard work.  Perfect for this time of year

getting myself organized

So yesterday I managed to start picking up the house and getting organized.  I started walking a bit and am now working on eating better and walking more.

I am working on trying to catch up on chores and start catching up on other paperwork.  It is a busy week but I am feeling really good and successful about it.

Tomorrow I am going to start adding back my spirituality and meditation.

Restarting AGAIN....

I have such a hard time getting myself on track and keeping myself on track.
Today I am restarting again.  I am not going to be down on myself for falling off the being healthy wagon, because I have been trying to be good to myself.  I may not have followed through health wise but I was working on my emotional and mental self.  I have been doing neurofeedback and therapy and trying to get over an annoying cold.

Today I am trying to get the house picked up and get some stuff done because I have a really busy work week (which makes me happy as I am really getting my practice off the ground)

So here is to a busy and fun week ahead.

Full Snow Moon


This time of year our ancestors struggled to find food, were cold and often struggled to have hope.  This is a good time to focus on what the future holds and to getting through the tough times.  This time of year always seems to be hard for me to get through.  Finances are tough from the holidays, trying to plan for the future and making it through the day, it can be hard to have hope.

This is the time of year that I struggle and usually start to find the my seeds of intent are not going to come out the way I thought they would.  But If I focus on doing what seems right to my gut and focus on moving forward in the direction I feel compelled, I find that my path unfolds as it should.

This is a full moon that I often ask to be shown the way and even if it seems divergent from my original plans, I follow the path that is shown - it always turns out to be the best path for me.

Finally Catching Up

I fell behind in so many things in my life.  I have been working to keep up again.  I finally got caught up with my billing, my notes and housework.  I am working on trying to stay on top of things so I feel more calm and organized.
