Rejoice


I heard someone say recently that if things are hard for you, it's an indication that the Universe thinks that you are doing really well, and is adding a few things to your load, because it thinks you can handle it. Sometimes I think the Universe overestimates my abilities!

It's been a crazy week, and I'm just finding time to breathe, although I seem to have lost an hour of that too, to "daylight savings." At any rate, I'm looking forward to a more focused and productive week coming up, and all that wonderful New Moon energy stirring.

The website is coming along and will be up and running April 1st. My bookwork is....getting close to being done. The sun is shining, and I'm enjoying a nice tall Diet Coke with a spot of lime, and some skull ice cubes - just for fun. Even after a week of struggles, I am feeling rather confident today.

I'm also feeling a bit "witchy" - which is fun. I rarely go through my day without pausing on spirituality in some way or another, but it's been a while since I felt like dancing under the moonlight, or mixing some ingredients in the old cauldron. I think I'm going to stir up something good for tomorrow night's New Moon.

What I will leave you with, is this: even at my lowest, the past week, I have rested solidly on the fact that I know who I am. I know what I believe. Even if situations shake that foundation - it's still solid. Instead of regretting what has passed, or not gone well, I will rejoice. Because I know that the future is very bright. Regardless of how much the Universe throws at me, or thinks I can handle.

How's that for optimism?

Great optimism. That's the way I try to live my life...even though sometimes the curves I am thrown get me down. I've been having a heck of a time adjusting to this daylight savings time. It takes me a few days for the body to adjust. It's like your whole biorhythm is thrown off track. Hoping you have a great week.

A nice positive approach... Can't wait to see the website... Myself I like daylight savings time in the spring as it gives you a longer day... I do miss the early morning sunshinie yet it will be here soon. Hope you have a wonderful week... blessings

I am enjoying your posts here, as to this post: I have found for myself that one of the reasons I have such difficult challenges that come my way from time to time, is that I want to grow in my strength and courage and the challenges offer me the opportunities to exercise those "muscles".
I'm following you now, I would love to have you visit my blog, and comments are always welcome.

Cheers!

Love it...love reading your thoughts. You sound very grounded and centered. And I understand the "witchy" feeling. Been working away with herbs and oils, readying for Ostara and spring equinox. I'm ready for some good ol' fashioned witchiness!

Nydia said...

Oh I needed reading that.. It's wonderful to read something so up high! Keep this feeling as often as possible, it's the best path, I believe!

Kisses from us.

Rue, I've just spent 5 minutes looking for an email address for you but I'm a bit blonde and can't find one. I just had a sinking feeling that you too were lovely enough to offer me an award and I didn't include you in my list. I'm sooooo sorry. As such - I will get myself organised and write a special special special post just for you before the end of the week. As you can see - blonde is as blonde does. Hope you'll forgive me because I truly love your blog too more than anything and I feel truly remorseful. Keep watching for more surprises before the end of the week ... Love and Brightest blessings...
