Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of July 2, 2017

The crystals I am working with for the week are Blue Apatite, Star Ruby and Aqua Aura Quartz. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Blue Apatite – Stimulates thoughts and ideas. It is used to increase intellect, imagination, and intuitive/psychic awareness. Helps you maintain focus, learn, concentrate effectively, think clearly, and communicate better. It can clear the aura, enable spiritual attunement, and bring powerful psychic awareness. Increases creativity and imagination. Having apatite near you or wearing it can bring harmony on all levels, and bring inner peace. This occurs because it helps release old feelings. Apatite is reputed to physically assist with nail problems, allergies, arthritis, bones, eyesight, glandular problems, muscles, nervous system, weight loss. 


Star Ruby – Ruby in general stimulates circulation and amplifies energy. Increases vitality, overcoming exhaustion. Ruby is a stone that deepens a couple’s relationship and encourages closeness and commitment. It is a stone of courtly love and may honour admiration from a distance. Ruby increases passion. It can also ease physical ailments related to pregnancy and menstrual pain. Ruby helps banish nightmares. It promotes a clear mind, increased concentration and motivation, and brings self-confidence. It propels one toward prosperity and achievement. Ruby encourages you to enjoy the simple pleasures of being in the physical world. It increases desire and sexual energy. Star Ruby has the same metaphysical properties as Ruby, but with increased healing and magical energy. The Light of the Soul is reflected and grounded within the star of the Ruby. It is extremely helpful for those inclined to self-harm or self-neglect, and is quite beneficial in overcoming sexual dysfunction or the trauma of sexual or power abuse and suppressed anger. As a stone of spiritual Light, it can be used by Light workers and healers to integrate high-frequency energy into the body. It assists one in recognizing the true abundance of life. 


Aqua Aura Quartz – Enhances communications of all kinds. This also assists with growing and using self-expression in a calm and loving manner. Aqua Aura is called both a success stone and an abundance stone. Helps enhance psychic abilities. Aqua Aura is said to assist in conscious awareness of one’s own motivations and patterns. Aqua Aura is used by crystal healers and others to calm the emotions and the emotional body. It is a powerful stress reliever. It is also a strong energy for reducing or eliminating anger. Physically Aqua Aura is reputed to help with throat problems, stress-related physical or mental illness, depression and anxiety disorders, thymus bland, vertigo, immune system disorders. 

We have been stressed out and exhausted lately. πŸ˜• I know, I’ve been feeling it too. We have been lacking energy, feeling tired, and maybe depressed. We have been letting life pass us by just trying to keep up with the regular stuff. I know… I’m guilty! This week FINALLY looks like a turn around point! We are going to become more in-tune and spiritually aware. We are going to release our angers, fears, frustrations, and past traumas in healthy ways. Expressing yourself creatively can really help process emotions. I feel like we are also subconsciously processing things, and this week will be one of letting go and moving forward, even if you aren’t consciously doing so. We are going to have more energy, ideas and clarity to pursue our goals in life. We are going to get our vitality back. It’s time to have some fun, and enjoy the simple pleasures of life!! Having fun is a perfect way to let the shit go! And hey, it’s summer! So why not get out there and do something that’s fun, that you enjoy, that reminds you of how awesome life can be. We are going to see how amazingly abundant our world is this week! Let’s see what the cards say for this week! 


These cards are just so beautiful… as always! But seriously though ❀️ For what we’ve been going through, this is exactly what we need to be reminded of. We have the power to shape our destiny. So much more of it needs to be shaped from our heart and soul, and less of it from the mind. When you get wrapped up in the thoughts in your mind, this is when anxiety takes over. Depression, nervous system issues, immune system disorders, stomach ailments, you name it! We need to ground our awareness back to our heart, and even deeper into the soul. We need to operate from there. The place where you were safe as a child, when you knew you could do anything you wanted and didn’t worry about the details. The child that let fun, and their heart guide their pursuits and goals. The child that didn’t care what they looked like or what they had, only how they felt. This card also says that we can’t live in a dream world either. If you are too spaced out and not conscious in each moment, you miss out on life. If your too focused on responsibilities then your life will be out of balance too. You just have to find a better level where you feel happy and grounded. We have a lot of work to do, but make sure you incorporate passion and fun into your life, and care for the child within you. Ground yourself by looking at the picture of the Star Ruby, and feeling yourself be grounded to the Earth through its beautiful energy. The anxiety, depression, low energy, etc. that we have been dealing with is a result of us stressing over the past. Let the past go. It’s what you have to do to lighten your load. You HAVE to. Feel the fire igniting within you, and the smoke releasing everything that ever weighed you down. Do it however you want to. It can be as easy as saying to yourself, “I’m letting this go.” It doesn’t have to be complicated. It doesn’t even have to be something specific, you might not even be aware of what’s really bothering you. Just let it all go. It is not helping you or serving you to hold on. It’s basically just forgiving yourself and anyone else, and choosing to let it go. Making a more conscious choice to live a more positive life. Now…. What DO you want? What does a happy life look and feel like to you? You have the opportunity to achieve and attract your heart’s true desires. Clearly decide what you want. Try writing it down, that helps bring it into the physical reality. Most importantly, know that you are truly deserving of everything you desire. Love yourself. Feel the fire and passion of the ruby, and heat up your life with self-love, desire, creativity, love for others, joy and happiness. Success, achievement and abundance are a result of our positive actions in life! 


Ground Yourself – This card is a signal that your energy and attention need to be grounded. If you’ve been feeling spacey, confused or forgetful, this card speaks to the reason. “Ungroundedness” means that your attention is directed too high – as if you’re not in your body. A balance is needed between a focus on Spirit and a focus on Earth. You can ground yourself by walking barefoot on grass or soil, by eating foods from the ground like potatoes or carrots, by rubbing your bare feet, by touching a tree or plant, or by visualizing roots coming from the bottom of your feet into the Earth. Grounding will help you better concentrate and focus, and will also increase your connection to the Angels. Additional meanings for this card: Spend time gardening; Work with flower essences; Adjust your diet and other lifestyle habits so that they support your mental and physical awareness; Make sure the words you speak or write are practical, grounded and understandable; Be down-to-Earth and authentic in your relationships; Send love and light to Mother Earth.


Let Your Past Go – You received this card because your thoughts and feelings about the past are holding you back. You’re repeating a pattern because of unfinished emotions from your past. This card is a sign to forgive and move on, to stop painful patterns. It doesn’t mean that you need to be with the person you’ve forgiven. It simply means that you’ve let toxic feelings go in exchange for peace. Additional meanings for this card: Approach a new situation or person with positive expectations; Avoid routines; Speak to a councillor or support group; Forgive those who’ve hurt you; Forgive yourself; The worst is now behind you; Keep your thoughts about this situation high and bright. 


What Do You Desire – This card comes to you because you’ve been waiting for external signs of what you should do next. The Angels say the answer comes from inside of you. You must decide what you want before anything can change. Carve out time to meditate upon your true heart’s desires, and know that you deserve the best, as we all do. Additional meanings for this card: Use affirmations and positive visualizations to manifest your desire; Clarify your desires; Release any guilt or fear regarding asking for what you want. 

Read that last line one more time. Xoxo, Carrie

Angel Card Reading – Week of March 5, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Ocean Jasper, Pyrite and Prasiolite. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Ocean Jasper – Very soothing and helps to love one’s self as well as others. It heals the emotions and brings peace of mind. It helps with acceptance of responsibility and increases patience. The patterns symbolize that we are all interconnected. A protective stone. Encourages a feeling of joy and elevated spirits. Helps you to release negative feelings, helps you if you need a lift. Helps you to enhance your personal power. Once you understand yourself better, this helps you to have greater self confidence, self esteem and self worth.


Pyrite – Enhances intelligence, mental stability, logic, analysis, creativity, memory, and psychic development. It can help you tap your own latent mental talents and abilities. Pyrite is a powerful protection stone, and is very grounding. Brings energies of good luck or good fortune.


Prasiolite – A stone of originality and courage. Fosters self-reliance. A prosperity stone, said to attract abundance. Clears negativity. It can help strengthen and express emotions as well as the mind and will. It is also said to be highly beneficial for prophesy.

Every week I always feel like the reading is aimed at me, so I guess it makes me feel better that I am not the only one going through this stuff. I guess it’s just life, and we really are all inter-connected. These crystals suggest we are feeling down, feeling negative and overwhelmed by life. Honestly… I’ve been feeling it. My 4 year old son is being treated for leukemia, and my 10 year old son has autism, so I have a lot of responsibility to take on. None the less, we are very blessed and life is good. I have been lucky enough to receive a scholarship with Carmel Baird to take a course in Mediumship. It is an exciting opportunity, but I was feeling overwhelmed today, feeling like I’m falling behind, and that I don’t have the time (or peace and quiet) to allow myself to be in the space I need to be to work on this. My moments of quiet are fleeting to say the least. I was feeling a little resentful today… and giving away my personal power! Whatever responsibilities are weighing you down, know that the crystals are protecting us and helping us clear this negative energy. We need to tap into our personal power, and the best way to do this is to lift our spirits and feel joy. Doing something today that makes you feel happy. Coincidentally, I was watching some Joel Osteen on TV this morning, and this was exactly his topic. That we weren’t meant to live life just living out our responsibilities from morning till night. We are here to be happy… to experience joy. We are no good to anyone if we are miserable. We need to love ourselves through these tough times, and find our own personal power. We need to accept responsibility for what we can control. We need to find and create joy all throughout our days. We need to have patience. Use your creativity to lift your energy to a state that is more positive. Prosperity, abundance, good luck and good fortune is in store for us, but we need to stay positive! Let’s see which cards go along with these crystals for this week. 


All my life, it has seemed like the people around me had a clear vision of what they wanted for their life, and I never really felt like I had that. Nothing felt right for me. Most of my old classmates are incredibly successful, and sometimes I’m left contemplating my self-worth and what my special talents and abilities are. It is hard these days with social media, and our constant comparison to how we feel other people live their lives. The crystals are helping us to tap into our special talents and abilities… and the best part? All we have to do to develop our life purpose is live in joy. Do what makes you happy, do what fulfills you, and your path will become clear. Focus on helping others find joy, and you will find that joy too. Everything that you are going through now you are learning from, and it relates to your purpose in life. Maybe work has been stressing you out, and you would way rather be doing something more rewarding that helps others. This may be a good time to do that more. Cupid is telling us that part of the joy we seek is found within the romance in our life, and within the love we give to ourselves and others. Cupid is awakening us to our love for life. We need to make clear and conscious decisions to choose joy and love. Let go of all the things that are bothering us, have forgiveness and patience, and accept love. Choose to be happy. Shake life up a bit. Most of the reason we feel down is because we have conditioned ourselves to feel this way. We have decided that because of the things that have gone on in the past, or how we compare ourselves to others, that we don’t deserve happiness or that someone else is to blame for what we are feeling. We have to let the past go and have forgiveness. I hold a lot of resentment in my life because of the past, and it is something I have to work on constantly. When I feel resentful, it’s easy to go back to those situations and remember all the reasons why I deserve to feel angry or resentful. The problem is that the only thing this does is hurt ourselves. It pushes people away when we wallow in the hurt or resentment. It lowers our vibrations. We have to make the conscious choice to choose happiness, and let the resentment go. It is ok to let go and have fun. Like Joel Osteen said this morning, you can be responsible and still have fun. We all deserve a little fun. Keep working on finding that balance in your day and in your life. Work on releasing those negative emotions and replacing them with happiness, and love. Let those toxic feelings go in exchange for peace. Go find some joy right now! 


Life Purpose – This card comes as a reminder that you needn’t struggle to find your life purpose. Don’t worry about how to make good money in a meaningful career. Don’t concern yourself with quitting or starting jobs or professions. Instead, follow the path of your natural desires, talents, and passions with the full intention of bringing joy to yourself and others. Your life purpose doesn’t need to be defined or pinpointed. It’s a process, not a category. Additional meanings for this card: Give all worries about money or career to God and the Angels. You’re on the right path forward towards your life’s purpose. Focus on one step at a time with respect to your life’s purpose, and release fears about the future to your Angels. What you’re doing right now is part of your life’s purpose.


Cupid – This card comes to you because the Angels see your desire for romance. Instead of fixing the externals in your love life, they assist you internally. The Angels say that romance springs from falling in love with life itself. When you let the Angels awaken this love within you, you naturally attract and experience more romantic love in your relationships. Additional meanings for this card: Surround yourself with romantic beauty such as roses and candles. Give any emotional hurt to the Angels. Ask Archangel Michael to help you release any painful attachments to previous or current lovers. Clearly decide what you desire in your love life. Affirm “it is safe for me to love and be loved”.


Let Your Past Go – You received this card because your thoughts and feelings about the past are holding you back. Your repeating a pattern because of unfinished emotions from your past. This card is a sign to forgive and move on, to stop painful patterns. It doesn’t mean that you need to be with the person you’re forgiven. It simply means that you’ve let toxic feelings go in exchange for peace. Additional meanings for this card: Approach a new situation or relationship with positive expectations. Avoid routines. Speak to a counsellor or support group. Forgive those who hurt you. Forgive yourself. The worst is now behind you. Keep your thoughts about the situation high and bright.

Weekly Angel Card Reading – Week of January 15, 2017


The crystals I am working with for the week are Angel Aura Quartz, Rose Quartz, Clear Quartz and Rhodochrosite. I use these crystals to connect to your energy, to connect to the message meant for you, and to send the healing properties of the crystals to you. 


Angel Aura Quartz – A stone of high spiritual energy. It is said that it is very helpful to the aura which it can protect, balance, and bring energetic health. It is said to help with Angelic communication and communicating with Higher Self and inner wisdom. It is used to help access Akashic records and past life recall. It is said to bring peace and tranquility because of the angelic protection it brings. Physically, it is helpful for general health, vitality, and miraculous cure of illness. 


Rose Quartz – Often called the “Love Stone.” A stone of unconditional love that opens the heart chakra. Enhances every type of love: self-love, family, platonic, romantic, and unconditional. Bringing love in to life and daily situations not only brings inner warmth, but it also lowers stress and soothes those around it. Rose Quartz also inspires the love of beauty, in oneself and others, in nature, and especially that which stimulates the imagination – art, music and the written word. Rose quartz is a very happy stone. Rose quartz is used to raise self-esteem and gives a strong sense of self-worth. Its loving energies teach us to apply this love to ourselves and thereby find ourselves more worthy. It is used to balance emotions and bring peace and calm. This calm emotional balance brings stress relief and easing of anxiety. All these things carry energies of forgiveness, tolerance, and compassion, enabling us to see the good in both ourselves and others. Physically, Rose Quartz is a beautification stone. It is helpful to clear the skin, reduce wrinkles and promote a soft complexion. Rose Quartz stimulates the proper functioning of the heart and circulatory system. It aids in relieving tension and stress. It is especially supportive of the female reproductive system. It assists in alleviating sexual difficulties, post-partum depression, and is thought to help mothers heal after complicated births. 


Clear Quartz – A power stone. It has been called the “Universal Crystal” because of its many uses. It enhances energy by absorbing, storing, amplifying, balancing, focusing and transmitting. It channels universal energy. Quartz also enhances thoughts, as they are a form of energy. Because it directs and amplifies energy, it is extremely beneficial for manifesting, healing, meditation, protection, and channeling. Due to its ability to balance, quartz is excellent for harmonizing and balancing one’s environment. Quartz is also good for energizing other crystals. Quartz is a stone of clarity which dispels negativity and clears away negative energy. Quartz enhances spiritual growth, spirituality and wisdom. It can also help particularly with concentration, studying, and retaining what one learns. Physically, it protects from negative energy. It is a very good stone for astral travel, manifestation, scrying, channeling, dream recall and dream work. Quartz is a Master Healer stone. It is an excellent all purpose crystal healer stone. It is said to amplify healing energy and is used to perform diagnostic healing. It is said to draw out pain. Quartz is used in crystal healing to strengthen all body systems. Quartz is reputed to be particularly effective for chronic fatigue, arthritis, bone injuries, depression, diabetes, fibromyalgia, intestinal troubles. 


Rhodochrosite – Rhodochrosite is a self-confidence booster. It brings a sense of realistic balance to life. It is also used to help cope with problems in life in a graceful, balanced manner without avoidance or denial. Eases issues caused by past lives. It is used to elevate the mind to a higher plane in meditation and energy work. Rhodochrosite balances and enhances love on all levels. It is also said to be a stone of freedom because of this helping to balance inner conflicts. This can bring a deep sense of happiness and relief from ongoing stress. Physically, it has been considered good for the digestion, the heart, the kidneys, spleen, pancreas, the pulse rate, and the thyroid. It is also used for stress related illness by transforming the energy of the illness with a balanced love of self and the universe.  

The message I am getting from the crystals is one of balance and love. Balance is a quality of every single crystal. It seems like we are giving too much away, and we need to make ourselves more of a priority. We have talents and love to give to the universe, and we can’t do that if we are exhausting and stressing ourselves out daily doing everything for everyone else. I know as a mom, the days to fly by, and it’s easy to give up on the things we love. We need to find the balance in our life so that we can be happy. We need to find the time to express and nurture ourselves, because we have so much to give. We deserve to be happy. You are worthy of investing in yourself. You have beautiful talents and love to share with the world. Let’s see what the cards have to say for the week. 


The cards are telling me that things may have been tough lately. There have been some inner struggles surrounding self-worth. We may be reliving past hurts that affected us in ways we are still processing. I can be a people pleaser, and when the giving/receiving energy is out of balance, it can amplify feelings of resentment and stress. We can find the balance we seek by accepting and making peace with the past. Forgive yourself. Forgive everyone else too. What’s done is done and everyone makes mistakes. That’s how we learn and grow. Let it all go. Start forward on a new path of positivity and love. Accept yourself for the beautiful ever changing spiritual being you are. Step in to the person you want to be, and exude the energy you want to attract in your life. Step into your power and accept the love you deserve. Show yourself love and know you are worth it. Radiate love, and it will come back to you. You have so much wisdom to share, not only from past experiences that you have learned from, but from experiences you are going through presently or have yet to go through. Show yourself love so you can learn and show others the way. Show them the way to happiness. Show them the way to freedom. You are on your way, all you need is love. I am sending so much of it out to you today, and so are the crystals. The energy is amplified by the Clear Quartz crystal. Lots and lots of beautiful love. πŸ’—πŸ’πŸ’–πŸ’“


Acceptance – You are built to question everything as part of your mission of making healthful changes to this planet. However, this characteristic may cause you to reject a part of your life that’s necessary in order for you to get to the next step. This card is a message for you to search through your life and determine if there is anything (or anyone) you are rejecting. Accepting your life completely is the best thing you can do for yourself right now. While this may not be easy or even seem right, know that you simply cannot change everything you do not like, and certain things must be tolerated in this lifetime. Ask the Angels to bring you strength and comfort to make letting go and accepting easier. 


Apologize – This card asks you to take the high road in this situation and apologize to either the people involved or yourself for things that have been bothering you. Your honesty and fiery nature may inadvertently lead you to say things that might hurt others’ feelings. Saying that you’re sorry is one of the best ways to let the pressure off and defuse tension. Even if you perceive that you’ve done nothing wrong, the Angels ask you to apologize in general for any disappointment or frustration that arose. Be sure to have an honest discussion with yourself or the other person about the underlying feelings that led to the conflict. The Angels certainly don’t want you to cover up your true emotions! Know that while saying sorry may not be easy or even seem fair, in this situation it’s being asked of you because it serves a higher purpose. This is a lesson for you to put aside your pride and do something for the greater good. 


Share Your Wisdom – Within you is ancient and powerful wisdom about the true rules of right and wrong. You came to this planet to make big changes, and you’re not alone in this mission. As you learn more about the changes that should be made to society, this card guides you to share this awareness with like-minded others. The more people who know their true purpose (because people like you awaken them to it), the more effective this collective mission will be.

Angel Card Reading – Week of Jan 31, 2016

  
Well, we are starting off a new month, and it seems that we have been making progress. Although it feels like we will encounter some bumps this week, maybe feeling overwhelmed or like your not getting to enjoy life, we are reminded that we are making steady progress. No maybe you haven’t hit the lotto, and maybe things seem a little sucky, even though you have been trying so hard to stay positive. Trying your best is all that matters. Even if you can’t see it now, when you look back in the long run, you’ll see what strides you were making in your life at this time, that will lead you into the future to who you want to be. Sometimes it hard to see all the positives, so that’s why it’s good to sit down and make a list. Make a list of all the positive lessons you have learned, all the things your grateful for, and you’ll quickly surprise yourself to realize how blessed you really are. And how we worry needlessly about nothing.. About perfection.. When it is absolutely unnecessary. We all get along pretty well.. We can find anything to gripe or feel bad about. I am so guilty of this, so I’m sure this is getting directed right at me! I worry about the next thing to worry about. I can’t settle down and relax until everything feels done and perfect… I did this today and cleaned endlessly for hours (to make sure I did everything perfectly!) while the rest of my family enjoyed their day. So for today, if you can, relax. Do something that makes you feel good. Count your blessings. Keep the faith that you are on the right path, and are doing well, and appreciate yourself. Appreciate your need to play and enjoy life. Appreciate that you deserve it just as much as anyone else. Do something today just for you, that makes you happy. I have noticed my irritability level rising in the past few days. I haven’t had much time for myself at all, working full time and having kids. I used to regularly get time to myself, and now I am not getting that nearly at all. I try to take time for myself and do things just for me, but sometimes we need to do even more, not just the minimum. It’s such a mom thing to put ourselves on the back burner constantly. This is reminding us, that we deserve to be happy too. We deserve to have the time to know who we are as individuals, and to know what we like to do for fun. I sometimes feel like I don’t even know anymore. This is exactly the purpose of this card. To remind us play is something that we need, in order to live a balanced life and feel happy. Play comes up in my readings more than any other card.. We ALL can get so caught up in life and all our responsibilities, we neglect the child within ourselves that just needs time to play and have fun. Take the time to nurture that child. The third card again reminds us to have faith and trust. Whatever we are going through now is meant to happen, so we can learn and grow. Everything is really a blessing if you can see it that way. 

Steady progress – You drew this card as reassurance that you’re making steady progress. You sometimes harshly compare yourself to others, and feel that you should be farther on your path by now. Yet look how far you’ve come, how many lessons you’ve learned, and how many people you’ve helped! Focus on your progress, instead of expecting perfection from yourself. Each day, take at least one small action step concerning a project that you’re passionate about. You’re on the right path, even if it feels that you’re moving slowly. Praise the light, instead of cursing the darkness. Appreciate yourself. 

Play – The Angels see that you need to play, so they sent you this card. You’ve been working and worrying a lot lately, and your soul cries out for fun. Feelings of fatigue, irritability or depression are additional signs that you’re overdue for some playtime. You don’t need to wait until you have a free moment, because you can inject fun and silliness into your day today. Simple pleasures, moments of silliness, laughing with a friend, or watching a funny movie are examples of ways to have fun that don’t require a lot of time or money. Fun and play are necessary parts of life for children and adults. These types of activities help us live healthier lives, and allow us to attain our desires more quickly. Fun is part of living a balanced life. Stop what you’re doing now, and go have fun! Release any guilt about having fun to the Angels. You deserve happiness, pleasure and enjoyment. 

Blessing in disguise – The Angels sent you this card to help you recognize the blessing in the midst of an apparent challenge. What you’ve appeared to have lost needed to fall away, and will be replaced with something better. Have no fear for your future, but continue praying and following the guidance that comes to you through repetitive feelings, thoughts, visions and words. Release the need to control and predict the outcome to this situation. Trust.

1st day of blogging a success!

61 visitors to my blog on the 1st day, and tons of likes. Thank you all so incredibly much for stopping by. I have wanted to start a blog for sometime, but with the time constraints of kids and work and chores, it leaves me very little time for my photography or blogging! Something moved me yesterday and worked through me, and made me type up the 1st and 2nd blogs quickly and put them up without hesitation or embarrassment. I don’t know why, maybe it’s because I am a shy person, but it feels weird just to put your real emotions out in the world for anyone to see. It’s a vulnerability that must be overcome to effect positive change and real discussions about our true issues and problems. I pushed through cleaning my kitchen and in a few hours when supper rolled around, there I was staring down a filthy kitchen once again. It is something I have tried to accept and embrace since becoming a mother, that responsibility and worries become endless once you enter the realm of motherhood, yet something is chipping away at my soul every time I have to get back to doing stuff I perhaps would prefer not to be doing. I guess it’s a balance that I am struggling to find. I can say that writing my feelings and putting them out there yesterday was also very therapeutic for me. It feels good not to care what anyone else thinks of you, and to love yourself and put your creative talents out into the world. It’s funny because I never really considered myself creative or to be particularly good at writing. It’s amazing what happens when you just sit down and try. I also feel like it is a divine guidance that gives me the inspiration and drive to actually do something. We all need to listen to our hearts closely and ask what we can do to help someone else and try to make the world a better, happier, and beautiful place to live and enjoy this crazy thing called life. I am sure one day when my child is out of the toddler phase and hopefully done with the ear infections, I will look back at my frustrations feeling I overreacted. The truth is, raising kids is hard, and we shouldn’t feel any shame for feeling emotions that have been around since human beings have existed. There is a reason we feel these emotions, and in feeling that out, and learning how to cope instead of avoid, we can hopefully mitigate the tougher years in our lives. Can’t have a rainbow without a little rain, right?
