New Moon New Intentions. Instead of waiting for the beginning of a month, week, year, etc to start my goals and intentions for myself, I am going to do it every moon cycle. Last month, during the new moon, I wrote a list of intentions of how I wanted my life to go for the next four weeks. Some were successes and others still need some work.
I have a new podcast. My friend, Jernell and I have toyed around with the idea of doing a podcast for quite some time and we just recorded our second episode! The podcast is called Self-Created and if you had to categorize it “Lifestyle” would be the best fit. We will discuss health, beauty, local, culture, spirituality, and whatever else comes to mind. You can take a listen here.
Did you catch my latest post for Goodwill? If not, here is the link.
Mini-Pamper Session. Bloom Healing Arts Studio had a Holiday Party and offered a special where you could get an eyebrow shaping, a mini-session with the Migun Thermal Massage Bed, and a chakra reading. I never had my eyebrows waxed before because I never felt like I had enough eyebrows to get it done. Um, I’ve been missing out. My chakra reading was spot on. I have a few things I’m feeling conflicted with creatively and personally and it has been causing a blockage around my throat chakra so the energy is flowing through my body as it should. I need to concentrate on meditatiting, visual meditating at that, to get things flowing. Migun Thermal Massage Bed – get it in your life.
Did 2016 suck? There were a lot of unfortunate situations (elections, deaths, shootings, etc) but I don’t think it was any better or worse than other years. I’m not one to mourn the death of a celebrity. I will acknowledge it and move on. But that’s what I would with the death of any person I “know.” Unless it is someone in my immediate family, I won’t be affected. I don’t know, maybe because I spent a majority of my life thinking everything suck and just wanting to die I tend to look at things differently.
Let it go. I used to be someone that took everything to heart. E V E R Y T H I N G. Now, I’ve become someone who let’s almost everything go. I know what to expect (and not to expect) from people and I’m just not bothered anymore. Even when I think my day has gone to shit, I just move on (you can about my latest crazy day on my podcast. #NotSoShamlessPromotion)
Skin care. I’ve mentioned it a couple of times on the blog but I am crazy obsessed with skincare. I may start sharing more of what I use. Because I know you all care.
Projects. Sewing, knitting, crochet, embroidery…the list is long and I need to stop adding to it.
I may be a little obsessed with the TV Show New Girl. I binged watch the whole series on Netflix twice. I miss the old/original into credits. And I love the dress Jess/Zooey is wearing while singing the song. I want to make a dress like that. Damn, there I go again…adding more to the list.
DIY Classes. I really want to teach more this year. I enjoy teaching and crafting with people.
Moonlight. Have you seen it. It was a beautiful movie. I didn’t cry in the theater when I saw it but I did cry afterwards when I thought about it. My biggest take away is everyone needs love and it doesn’t matter what kind (friend, sibling, parent, significant other), just love.
Speaking of Love. I am not the most affectionate person. People have told me this (including my mother). I try my hardest to give my sons constant love through hugs, kisses, communication, etc. I don’t want them to be like me. I want them to be better. And yes, I still kiss my boys on the lips (they are 4 and 7). I don’t really get the controversy over this.
