This past weekend was a pretty tough weekend for me. I will be writing up my Shadowscapes tarot pull for today later but first I am compelled to write about my weekend and all that is going on in my life. This post will be very rambly and kind of all over the place so hold on tight for the ride!
I have periods where I get very depressed, this is simply a part of who I am and I deal with it as best I can via natural remedies and in every way that I can to avoid going back on anti-depressants. It’s hard. I struggle with it often but at the end of the day the anti-depressants numbed me too much and I just don’t want to live like that anymore. The joys in my life exceed the sorrow and I work to stay in that mindset.
This past Saturday I was left alone to my own devices, as my husband was in California securing our new home and scouting the area etc. This is not always a good combination for me. Often I will sink down and get stuck then have to work my way back up. I started to sink into a lonely state but then picked myself right up and said “Hell with it” and carried on. I began some serious purging of “stuff” and packing of stuff that we were keeping. At the end of Saturday a huge chunk of it was done, my kitchen was spotless and I was exhausted and it was AWESOME to get it all done!
Sunday came around and some friends came to join in the packing fun. The house (save for desks, glassware, and toiletries), is packed and ready to be loaded into our POD which gets delivered later today. There are a few odds and ends that need wrapped and packed but those will happen while we are loading the pod up and such.
Looking around my home seems so empty, it’s filled with many memories and potential of future memories. We are renting the house to a friend who will continue the work we’ve started on interior remodeling (and do a better job than amateurs like me). Within me I feel a seed stirring. Long ago planted and forgotten, it holds within it the hope and promise of a new day and brighter life. This move to me means a new start where my friends live. I leave behind me a handful of dear friends, who I will miss, but ultimately will come visit me.
The promises of the beauty to come sustains and nourishes me as I continue walking forward in this life. This year has truly lived up to the “year of the dragon” with the plethora of life altering transformations that begun sometime ago and have become manifest this year.
This weekend we pack the POD and finish clearing out the house. Next Friday we begin our journey by picking up the RV.
Throughout all of this, I could not have remained sane had it not been for my friends locally, the support of my wonderful boss and my community at Sacred Mists.
To my friends locally, I love each and everyone one of you and cherish all our memories. You have been with me for a long time, we have shared many experiences, many sadnesses and many good times. Judy, you have helped me when I have fallen, you have reminded me that I am awesome, you have been there when I needed you to be there. Donna, your smile always warms me, your laughter incites joy and I will see you at Skillmania via Skype to keep our record going! Jennifer, we have been friends for what seems like forever (15 years is a long assed time), we have been through a lot together and will continue to keep those times rolling. We will continue to make new memories over the years and I fully expect you to come and visit me anytime. We have the room!
To my boss, you have been a beacon of light through many dark places in my life. You have been with me when I have fallen spiritually and physically. You are not just my boss, you are not just my High Priestess you are my friend and sister in all things. I am eternally grateful for your presence in my life and look forward to this next chapter.
To my community at Sacred Mists, your love and support over the years has meant the world to me. We grow, learn and lift each other in times of need. Each member of Sacred Mists is sacred and precious to my life. Whether you are still with The Mists or not you have played an integral role in my life and I cherish that. We will continue to grow together for years to come as we walk the path of the olde ways and wise.
YOU reading this, YOU are awesome and whether you know it or not have contributed something to my life on some level. DO I know you? Maybe not but you read my blog and you contribute that energy to my life. That makes YOU AWESOME. Each of us are awesome and contribute to the energy of this life in ways we cannot imagine.

May your day be blessed with joy, love, laughter and light. Each and every day we make choices that trickle and ripple the world around us. My choices today will send ripples of joy and laughter to those around me. Blessings-Lady Lilyth
Today I wrote this:
With love and joy in my heart, I greet today. The past has made me stronger and wiser, the future holds things of wonder. I embrace all that I was, am and will become with open arms and love. May your day be blessed, my friends, with much laughter and joy.Blessings-Lady Lilyth
Each of these are things that I mean from the heart and each action I have in every day ripples in ways that I cannot know. I choose to have awesome ripples to make someone’s day a little brighter. With that may YOUR day be blessed with AWESOME and LAUGHTER and JOY!
