Many things are going on in the world right now. Right now near where I live we have been through a very destructive hurricane and are rebuilding what most have lost. Being in retail during this is a demanding job but, it gives us employees the hours we need to pick ourselves back up too. Mother Nature is not happy with what has been happening on the planet’s surface, and she has a right to be upset. It seems like the world is in the dumps in regards to enjoying the life we have on this planet. It even makes me depressed sometimes, and that’s when it begins to hinder my mood on a daily basis. So I’m starting to get back into painting, as it was my therapy before this madness had started so I shall go to my happy place again. Music helps me as well which I am using to hone my skills. Right now my main love is for the countries in which I am currently painting which is the featured photo as well as in the post. This goes to show that even in the darkness there is always a way to survive it. Share the love as best as you can. Thank you for taking the time to read this post, blessed be friends~
I was walking with my dog a week ago and came across this beauty. I have seen a lot of the Jasmine plants around where I live here in Florida but not like this. I thought it was beautiful to see that nature has no limits to where it wants to grow. No limits is what this picture represents to me.
This was taken on Easter Sunday when I was visiting my Boyfriend’s parent’s house for Easter Dinner. For the ones who don’t know from my earlier posts, I’m a practicing Wiccan and during this day observed it as a pagan holiday as it was originally intended to be. I will not going into my beliefs on this topic because I do not want a war starting on my blog, but I simply was feeling the energy on this day and was happy to have seen it as the rebirth of the mother within and around us all. Mother Earth is awakening and bringing about new life into the world she has given us. So I feel much appreciation on that day and carry it on for the rest of this year until the next Ostara~
Went to the beach on the 22nd of this week with a friend of mine from work and her girlfriend to kind of get away from the stress of our daily lives. Lately my friend and I have become so immersed in the negativity of our jobs that we just wanted to get a breath of real fresh air. Salty seas can do that for ya, believe it or not. In any case, it had been a long time since I had been to the beach that I thought it a time to head there. It was beautiful there, even though the water was freezing it was still refreshing to spend that quality time with them. Before I was just so frustrated with everything that I was hating life, a lot more than usual. I can get depressed quite easily, but when I went to the serene beach of New Smyrna….it was like a blanket was just put over me and the worries of the world were gone. It was awesome, and the breezy and hot sand…were so peaceful. There was barely any people there so we had the spot to ourselves when we walked around. It was a much needed break and like I said, gave me some quality time with my friends which I rarely get to do anymore. When you find people you can trust and talk to, it really makes life easier to go through. I honestly don’t know how far I would have went if I didn’t have the people I have today. So with that break, I hope to set my path straight and make the choices best suited for me. Wish me luck everyone, and have a great weekend!
Sorry for being late, work has called my attention and I wasn’t able to write my post yesterday which was the official first day of spring. To Pagans everywhere this was also Ostara, a celebration of spring time and rebirth of the Earth and the energies within her. Where I am from there is really no separation of the seasons, it is either really hot or really cold unfortunately but sometimes it has it’s rewards. I aim to make this blog a bit more colorful in the coming days but I dare not promise I will have an image or picture every day. I work too much to promise that, as sad as it is I love to do my art more than working where I do. I will also be making more modifications to this site of mine and including more pictures in my gallery finally. I will also have rituals recipes and such in my library taps so keep an eye on that as well.
In other news on my personal life I aim to make many significant chances as I have started today. With Spring here it is time to do a bunch of spring cleaning, getting rid of the old and what not. I hope to improve my life and meditate more on matters that bother me. It’s always good to step back and really take in what it means to live life. It’s not easy to sit and just be, trust me I fidget more than anything when I sit still for too long. But it has helped to release some of the stress that my job and life has brought to me. Yet it also taught me that I am responsible for my life and that I can change it. I don’t have to be stuck, so I am taking the reins again and changing the course I am going. I hope that I make the right choices and follow the way with my guardians at my side. So pray with me, or send positive vibrations my way because lord knows I’ll need it. I thank those who have liked or follow my blog as it has been discouraging when I’m not getting noticed. I know patience is key with these things but I do want to thank those who have actually looked at my posts and have at least liked it. It gives me so much hope you don’t even know. God Bless you all and have a wonderful time this season as the flowers begin to bloom and new births appear. It’s a beautiful time right now, enjoy it while it lasts.
