My favorite season is spring. I love the sense of coming out of hibernation, both myself and the earth. The trees have beautiful new leaves that are sprouting. The air smells fresher, somehow. I can open my windows and get a nice breeze that makes my whole apartment smell fresh. I love the refreshing rain (if we get rain!) and the smell of wet earth. The whole earth is waking up!
On the other hand, I know that summer follows spring, and here in northern California, it can get incredibly hot in the summertime. 100 degrees are not uncommon. My summertime electric bill makes my checking account cry, because I absolutely cannot stand to be hot. I have to run the AC night and day because if I’m hot and sweaty I just can’t sleep. Driving anywhere is miserable, because even though I have AC in my car, unless I have a long trip, the AC barely kicks in by the time I drive across town. I am not looking forward to that.
It’s Sunday afternoon, but I honestly don’t dread Mondays the way I used to. Since I work from home, it barely feels like “work.” I do love what I do, but not having to go into an office doubles the pleasure! So much yes!
This afternoon as I was driving to my Mom’s place to deliver her laundry, I drove by a boutique furniture and decor store (boutique = expen$ive!), they had a chalkboard sign out front that made me laugh out loud! It says “We’re Sofa King having a sale!” (Read it outloud quickly…. 😀 😀 :D)
I’ve started taking a year-long weekly course with a local woman who is a psychic medium. (Don’t judge!) I have always felt that I am an empath, and the need to learn how to “turn off” the cacophony of feelings and emotions I get from others when I am out and about led me to take this course. I’m learning a lot of meditation techniques to help get rid of the “noise” in my head and how to release negative thoughts and feelings using meditative techniques. I’ve only had three lessons but it is very very interesting. There is a group of six other women who are also taking this course, and I love it that we get to do it over Zoom. I am also looking forward to developing my psychic abilities. I’ve always known that I do have some, but always pooh-pooh’d it. We shall see. It is already helping me deal with the negative self-talk that I’ve had all my life. I’ll keep you posted!
