loss is deep, but love is exponential

My nephew passed away today. He was 3.  He had a lot of complications throughout his short life – but you know what was completely uncomplicated? All the love. My amazing niece sat in my lap and read this to me today. It’s a beautiful book, and while it was to help her and her brother with understanding, it was comforting to me as well. … Continue reading loss is deep, but love is exponential

accepting pain and the unknown

It happened again this morning. I was thinking about working from a coffee shop today. Sounds easy enough, right? Not when you’re chronically ill, and highly sensitive. You have to consider a lot of things that other people don’t. Like, I typically like coffee shop environments. They’re made to be comfortable, and workable. The ambiance is something I can work with for a while. I … Continue reading accepting pain and the unknown

in the loop, with this photo sharing device

Photos are all about connection and memory, and in this digital age, where everyone takes photos, but no one sees them ever again, we need innovative ways to share them. I’d love to try one of these out ASAP. I bought a digital frame for my grandma before, hoping that it was easy for family to update, but it eventually just went away. My mom just … Continue reading in the loop, with this photo sharing device

comfort and color for dreary days

Cold and dreary days can seriously get you down. Especially where I live, the weather gets dreary for about half of the year.  Creating a comfortable environment is super important for highly sensitive people. With winter’s arrival, you might need to kick up the color in your space to help energize and balance your environment. I came across an easy way to add color and comfort … Continue reading comfort and color for dreary days

honoring the things that suck

Life can be unbelievably painful and ridiculous. And a lot of times, because people feel bad about what you’re going through, they don’t want to acknowledge it. It makes them uncomfortable to see you suffer. While it’s good that people don’t want you to suffer, it doesn’t mean that you won’t. It doesn’t mean that they can slap a platitude onto it and make it … Continue reading honoring the things that suck

a tarot wish list

Doing this tarot challenge has had me looking at the different decks people use. I’d always been interested in the tarot, but never really connected with the first deck I got. When I saw the Wild Unknown deck, I loved it’s energy immediately. This is the one I use every day, and I love it. (So much that I have it for sale from my shop) … Continue reading a tarot wish list

pieces of things.

So I’d been doing well with posts, and I’m also doing that IG tarot challenge. I mean, if I’m going to kick it, why not kick it hard? Because sometimes, you get kicked hard… and you can’t come up with enough thoughts to finish a post, and I haven’t been writing enough to have any in stock. I’ve got lots of thoughts that feel important, … Continue reading pieces of things.

NURTURING

Today is day 12 of the #modernmysticchallenge, and the prompt is NURTURING. I’ve been drawing one card every day so far, but I wanted more insight on today’s concept. I focused on asking three things regarding nurturing: 1- What do I need to nurture within myself? 4 of swords 2- What needs nurtured regarding the situation? 10 of swords (reversed) 3 – What do I … Continue reading NURTURING
