Thanks on Thanksgiving


Happy Thanksgiving!

This is my favorite weekend out of the year. I never plan anything.
It's a four day weekend filled with lots of food and lots of relaxing.

I dig it.

I am filled with gratitude and am truly thankful for many things.

I'm thankful for:
  • finding the right job for me
  • having my Asheville crafting debut at the Charlotte Street Petite
  • getting back into candle and jewelry making
  • Asheville new friends
  • all my old friends
  • my freakin awesome boyfriend, who knew love really was grand?
  • my freakin awesome boyfriend's nuts
  • my passion for life coming back to me
  • my plans to join a fitness club on December 5
  • my cozy home
  • Mulder, my car
  • Faeries
  • midnight Cookout runs with Chris
  • lazy Sundays
  • herbal magic
  • good wine
  • Beer City USA
  • music
  • words
  • the moon and the stars
  • sex and candy
  • lava lamps
  • electric blankets and flannel sheets
  • finding a new groove

What are you thankful for today?
Think of at least 5 things you are thankful for and share with someone.

Goddess Oracle of the Week~Sekhmet

Sekhmet


Anger & Rage

I burn and fume

and shoot daggers from my eyes

I erupt and roar

(though you've not pulled my tail)

my edges are sharp

and I cut deep

my energy is strong and fierce

and my displeasure

needs to be expressed

Through sometimes mild

I can be very intense

Once incited

I am difficult to put out

I am always appropriate

always needed

Don't try to get rid of me

I need to be acknowledged and heard

I am anger


By Amy Sophia Marashinsky

**************************************************************************

I pulled this card the other day...and I thought "Wow, hmm...I'm not angry."

Now I am pissed.

I'm so done with some things. I am feeling my anger.

It's okay to be angry. I own this feeling.

I have expressed my anger and I feel good.


"Sekhmet says our anger is part of our power as women.
Don't give away your anger. Learn to express it in a way that it can be heard.
Learn to transform it so it empowers and energizes you.
Your path to wholeness will be more vital when you make anger your ally."
