The Joy of Self Discovery

Not too long ago, actually it was my birthday, I was down in Roswell with my good friend Chandra. We went for lunch to one of our favorite little sandwich shops and then we went down the street to a Chiropractor’s office….. Well, the chiro happens to sell crystals and tarot cards, and oracle decks, and candles and all kinds of things. If you’re ever down in Roswell be sure to check out The Sacred Mother. Anyway, I got this book called The Joy of Self Discovery Through Writing, by Linda Leigh Lowe. In the book she talks about different things to write about, all of which will, over time and with consistency, help you unlock insights about yourself. The things to write about are varied, from meditations to affirmations to thoughts…. I could add to what she put in the book, but what I love is she shares what appear to be pages from her own journals where she has done some of these things.

Today, I got to thinking and said “what if I just write” just a little bit every day, about whatever, with or without a purpose, and see what happens. I mean really, what is the worst that could happen? I think today I’m going to share some things that I am thankful for, because there needs to be more positivity put out there!

So in now particular order, I am thankful for:

♥ Being able to witness my mother finally happy, for the first time in my life

♥ Having a job that allows me to connect with people and care for them, and puts my empathy to fruitful use

♥ The way my Lil’ Bit can be so spontaneous and funny

♥ The laughter of my daughters

♥ The freedom to explore my path and gain new knowledge

♥ The man I share my life with, imperfections and all

♥ My car, haven’t always had a car, and it’s amazing that I do these days

♥ The people in my life who challenge me to be a better person

♥ My growing connection to those around me and the discovery of my own place in the All That Is

♥ Bookclub Chat

♥ Time spent in quiet (it doesn’t happen often)

♥ The Sacred Mists, the people, the ritual, the learning opportunities, the challenges, the differences of those who attend, all of it….

♥ That I found the place within myself that believes in and can harness Magick

 

Well, that’s a start and has me in a great mood!

So, what are you thankful for?
