Merry We Meet!!

This is my space to share, rant, rave, and even do a little bragging about my life choices, family, and where each are taking me.

Many people think 'witch' and immediately jump to the conclusion that I am some weirdo who's home smells like stale incense and hippie. I hate to disappoint, but I am as normal as the next person. As much as a person can be normal.

So, please read on. Enjoy my trials and tribulations. Hopefully, you can learn something from the mistakes I make and the good fortunes that come my way.

Ruts...

A rut.... It's nothing but a grave with the ends cut off. 

I feel like I've been stuck in one lately. As a matter of fact, I feel like my whole family has been stuck in one. It is time to stir up the creative energy in the home, a good cleaning, smudging, and house blessing ought to do the trick. Sadly, many of our houseplants have been so over loaded with negative that they simply couldn't handle it anymore and gave into the rot. Time for new house plants! Maybe even an indoor fairy garden. 

For us, energy stirring is a family affair. The kids get their noise makers (the oldest - bongos, the youngest - shakers or bells) we travel from room to room stirring latent and lazy energy after a good house cleaning. When all is said and done, I smudge the home of negative energy, shooing it out the doors and welcoming the positive back in. 

Every incantation/prayer I say is different and specific to the moment. I never write them down. This old year has brought so many changes and blessings. But sometimes I have forgotten that my magick is such a large part of me that it should not be ignored. I'm still searching for balance. I've taken on a new job, undergone the switch to homeschooling, writing a children's book series, and taken on a large responsibility of a coven. None, not one, do I regret. However, I am still desperately seeking a way to balance all of this, plus a marriage, kids, and household. 

 Even with all this chaos going on around me, or maybe because of the chaos, I feel like I am in a rut. I feel like I am never evolving or changing. Which I deem MUST change. Time to get out the cork boards, white boards, and schedules, and reorganize my life a bit. Time to find something that I am going to do just for me. Maybe a healthier lifestyle. Maybe more magick. In any case.... I need to change...NOW. Not just for me and my health but the health of my family as well.

The Fun Theory

I saw this video toady. It was a commercial by a German car company and it really got me thinking. Here is the video. It's short and very interesting. Please watch it!


What if we incorporate more fun into our everyday life? Into all of it? What if CHORES don't have to be chores anymore, but something fun and rewarding? I did a blog post on adding fun into our lives a bit ago back in September, I believe, as part of a 10 part blog session. It's really gotten the cogs in my brain working. We are a society that, for the most part doesn't laugh. We rarely even smile! I remember driving with my mother one day and asked her why all the people looked so angry. She responded with a big goofy grin and through tightly pulled lips asked if this was better. Considering it made, probably 4 or 5, others smile too I'd say Yes. There is something seriously wrong with our society. I know that I am just as much to blame as the next person. I take things too seriously, I get angry when things get spilled, and I lose it if things aren't as planned. But are those things really important? In the grand scheme of things important enough to not sit down and just laugh about it??

Now, if you are like me, you saw and thought, 'but what about when the novelty of the fun wears off?' 

That's where imagination and creativity come in. Don't get stuck in that rut. Don't allow yourself to get pigeon-holed and do NOT pigeon-hole yourself. Allow the imagination to run wild like a child! It's the 'you buy a kid a toy, they play with the box' theory (patent pending lol). Be that kid. Let life be that box! You'll never run out of new and exciting things to do.

The same is true with schooling for our kids. What if we take the boring book work out of the equation and teach them in a way that is fun for them? Hands-on, real life experiences? If you have ever heard The Wall by Pink Floyd, to me, that is what our society is turning into! Or trying to turn our children into at least. They have made tiny little mindless creatures that have the illusion of free-thinking when in fact, they medicate free thinkers into sedation and mindlessness. 

I say it's time for us to really look at what is going on. Let's take out the boring, add the interesting, and spice up life again. Make it WORTH living, not just droning through. 

I challenge each and every single one of my readers to, not only do something out of the ordinary, but to laugh about it too! Have a snowball fight indoors (we did that last night). Be creative, be fun, and laugh. If your feeling frisky, post what you did below!
