So Sunday Lately is apparently the only thing I write anymore when I’m not bragging about being covered in spray paint. I am okay with this.
My About page is getting a makeover! It’s seriously about time. It hasn’t reflected me in a while. Actually, I don’t know if this space has reflected me in a while. I’ve been doing such a good job of making sure that I’m presenting a nice, opinion-and-feeling neutral space that it’s lost all flavor at all. And that just ain’t cool, y’know? Who wants to read that blog?
I’m writing this in my favorite coffee shop, tucked away in the corner. I haven’t been here in a while and it’s one of my favorite “me” places. I’ve been trying to do things that bring back the root of who I am. I feel like I lost my way over the summer and let myself get swept up in other people’s shit that I lost the things that I like about myself.
Something that Molly Mahar includes in her Holiday Council program is a page of things that bring you back to you. It’s titled something like “Magic equations” or something like that. But it’s basically a list of things that you like to do that ground you and that you’re supposed to visit when you’re losing sight. I didn’t fill that sheet out last year, so I’m making my own for the last three months of 2015.
So I’ve had Twenty One Pilots “Tear in my Heart” stuck in my head and it alternates with that Macklemore “Downtown” song and Lady Antebellum’s cover of “Any Man of Mine” by Shania Twain. I am all over the place this week! But it’s what’s repeating in my head right now.
I’m also finding a lot of flowing and pulling imagery around lately. I started Emily Cassel’s Freedom is Sexy program this past week and ever since then, I’m pulling Goddess Cards that focus on calm energy, forgiveness, and an easy flow. I know this sounds super woo-woo, but I’ve always been a believer in trusting the Universe and guidance from a higher power.
I’m applauding all of you for getting this far in the post. I’m getting all kinds of weird up in here today.
I’m trying to make a map for myself for the end of 2015 and to set me up for the next year of my life (Freedom is Sexy ends right around my birthday, so it’s the perfect time to launch myself into something new). And I hate feeling like I’m always behind and just kind of bouncing around, spinning my wheels, and having to play catch up. That feeling makes me crazy. So scheduling is necessary to figure out where I’m supposed to be and when.
I also bought a Happy Planner this week and I have yet to dig into it. It’s so much bigger than my easily-transportable Moleskine planner, so I’m trying to figure out how I want to use it. If I want to use it.
