Taking responsibility & my energy...

Energy is a funny thing, sometimes I'm full of it and other times I have none. Lately it's been the later. I am drained, have been drained, tired and exhausted it's been about a month now. What is happening?

Well now I know what is happening...This is my life and now I am taking responsibility for it and for the energy I put out into the universe. The energy and life belong to me it is my responsibility for the energy I put out into it. I am responsible for my life and energy and I accept responsibility for this.

Wishcasting Wednesday: What do you wish to immerse yourself in?

I wish to immerse myself in positive thoughts and passionate pursuits. Trying to learn to change my thoughts change my life kind of thing. I've been away from Wishcasting for a while I'll blame it on work. I have been using work as an excuse to not work out, not deliver my Avon books, not take artists dates, not make new cheeses and not do the things I'm passionate about and instead I work and worry about money and sleep from exhaustion. Immersing myself in positive thoughts and passionate pursuits cheesemaking, photography, Avon, and travel. Thank you Jamie Ridler for the Wishcasting prompt.

Weekly Intention: Monday morning rituals

Every Monday I have a set of rituals that I try to do. It starts with morning pages 3 handwritten pages written as soon as I wake up they are free flow. Half way through I stop and make tea (technically your not supposed to but I think the tea helps) then some morning yoga only 10min. and a short meditation to set my weekly intention. Once the intention is set I get out the big newsprint pad and a sharpie marker and write out my weekly goals they are more of a guideline not something to stress out over just more of a suggestion. My intention this week is Calm!

Wishcasting Wednesday: What Inspiration do you wish to Follow?

What Inspiration do you wish to Follow?

I wish to follow the inspiration of cheese. At a clients home I found a magazine about cheese and it sparked an old passion that I didn't realize was a passion. I just thought of it as a curious interest left over from my first job at Trader Joe's, boy was I wrong. Since that day I have read about cheese and made 2 batches of homemade cheese, visited a dairy and bought whole milk with the cream still on for another batch of cheese. I have also bought very obscure cheeses and gone tasting and talked to cheese makers asking questions about how they have gotten started. I even looked for cheesemonger jobs. I have this strange calm feeling when I make cheese or think about owning a cheese shop or my own dairy or goats. Strangest thing is this has moved on its own where as my photography and fashion interest have always seemed stagnant. Maybe just maybe I found my true passion now if only I could bring myself to eat it and where in the heck am I supposed to keep the goats and do with the left over whey?

Thank you Jamie Ridler for the Wishcasting prompt.

Weekly Intentions, a dream board & some light reading.

I like to start of my week with an intention it usually comes to me via meditation, I've kind of slacked off for the past month but this week have made it my goal to get back on board with my morning and weekly rituals that really help guide me. Which means back to morning pages, yoga, meditation and tea. These are the things that keep me focused and calm and help me build on a better self and a more aware self. When I take the time to do these things I accomplish much more and I complain way less.

My weekly Intention this week is Restore: Restore my creative self and physical self take time to pamper the creative artist and women a soothing oatmeal bath some restorative yoga many vitamins and a massage. Restore my creative spirit and enjoy a hot tub night w/the girls. Restore the many parts of me way too much work lately so time to restore my energy and spirit.

Here are my weekly goals and my July monthly goals I try to use them as a guideline but no pressure if I don't get them all in I keep those and my intention in my mind and also in a place were I can see them multiple times a day it helps to be conscience of them in order to accomplish them and check them off your list. 
Last Friday was the Full Buck Moon so I created a dreamboard I try and do one every month it has images that represent what I would like the try or do or happen this month. What I am feeling in the form of images. I love making dream boards and often contemplate doing a class on them. We will see.
My light reading is "the not so big life" by Sarah Susanka I just started it and have my workbook ready. Lets dig deep and explore it's the only thing that can truly move you forward in my opinion digging deep and bringing up what is buried. It's how you find your passion. 
Onward with my week. It promises to be full. I work 5days and have 1 meeting a clambake and a hot tub night planned. Thank God I never schedule work on Monday!

Wishcasting Wednesday: What do you wish to take a Stand for?

I wish to take a stand for my Truths!!
That are:my self portraits in the bathroom w/the toilet in the background, flea market pearls w/a graphic tee and cargos, for my pink blackberry that my estranged husband still pays for, for living w/my boyfriend while my estranged husband still pays my cellphone, that my dreams do come true regularly, that the Nate Berkus show called me for their show about personal styles and trendsetters, that I wlould be fine to never wear another stitch of makeup but would die w/out my Anew, that I love my son, dog, bf, camera and atlas in that order, that I would rather be photographing in Monument Valley then ANYTHING else in the world, shopping comes next, that I will be and have been successful, that love may not conquer all but it sure makes it nice, that meditation and yoga are absolutely necessary for my well being along w/blueberries, my moms idea of quality time w/me is 2 hours in a Coldwater Creek or Nordstroms dressing room. If my cousin Rita and I don't spend time shopping when we are together we don't consider it a good trip, In n Out Double meats are the best PERIOD! I can live and make friends anywhere, Nature is worth saving, Happiness is a choice, there is plenty in this universe for me, this economy does not effect my success, Coconut reminds me of the ocean, FB and Twitter are good clean fun, It's taken 44 years to look this good, Dorie, Wags and me are like the sisters we never asked for, the driving range is the best place to let out my frustration, and almost nothing cuter then golf shoes and clothes, If my relationship doesn't work I will still have Rita, Dorie and Wags, I am becoming the best Avon rep I can be, My BF is sweet but my dog is sweeter, tea is a good thing and tea w/morning pages is better, Art journaling is my salvation and wishcasting has changed my life. Thanks Jamie! I wish to take a stand for the authentic truthful me!

Wishcasting Wednesday: What do you wish to Focus on?

What do you wish to focus on?
I wish to focus on the parts that make me a better me. Right now I have a lot going on and my focus seems to be all over the place. I am working on keeping my son and BF a priority, build my Avon business, building my cleaning business, self discovery, building strong friendships, maintaining the old friendships, throwing a party, saving money, pay bills, keep the home neat and clean, revamping my personal style (my fav focus), trying to find a new scent for the home, get better organized, getting my car repaired, and making time for self care.

As my focus is all over the place, I wish to focus on quiet time, meditation, inner reflection. As I typed all of that I realized it's a lot of noise. The Universe will let me know and place me where I need to be if I just quiet down and listen.
Change the Meditate to top of the list!

Wishcasting Wednesday: What do wish to read?

What do you wish to read?

I wish to read everyday and sometimes all day. What I wish to read is from cover to cover my National Geographic Magazine my favorite since childhood and then my prevention magazines every month. I'd also like to really make time to read the Right Brain Business Plan and The Not so Big Life and Villette. I keep joining book clubs and never find/make time to read the books so I think maybe that needs to change.

Weekly Intention: Physical

My weekly intention came to me during my morning pages, a time I spend journalling immediately after I wake up. I write out 3 pages of whatever is in my head at the time. Helps sort out thoughts ideas clears my head for the day. Thank you to Andrea from ABC creativity for this weekly prompt. Physical for me means more activity, do my Yoga and go to the gym take a walk and take a class. Move more a lot more.

Since I've been doing a weekly intention I also started listing weekly goals. Most weeks I do pretty well some I don't but it's more a guideline than a requirement. It really sets up my week and my weeks have been great since I've been doing this. So many blessings!

& Speaking of blessings I am doing the Sparkle 31days Sparkle by Jamie Ridler it is fantastic and only 5minutes a day. Here is my day 3 and my inspiration for it.

Weekly Review!

                                                            My week in review!

weekly goals
Not a week to accomplish my set goals. I did like 3 things on this list but that is okay they are not required just a loose guideline. My intention was to rejuvenate and that was definitely accomplished. Long baths candles mediation and lots of sleep and a home pedicure and facial and eyebrow threading. Quiet time alone and a reset of my long term plans and goals and some time to Sparkle!

Closet cleaning done! Just have to figure out what to do with the clothes I am not keeping.

Wishcasting Wednesday: How do you wish to Sparkle?

                                          How do you wish to Sparkle?

Thank you Jamie Ridler for the prompt and for Wishcasting Wednesdays. I wish to sparkle thru my photography which brings me joy. I just posted my 1st ad for my photography business. I finally accepted that it is my path. I kept putting it off and saying no I'm not good enough and there are so many other better photographers but I realized there are and there will always be but they are not me and not my style. I will sparkle in the joy that pursuing my passion will bring.

weekly Intention: Take Action! & Happy Birthday to me week

Every Monday now especially for the past 2 months I have been setting a weekly intention. I start off with morning pages, a meditation then I make a list of weekly goals. It has been a very productive practice and I have really seen results.

Last week I was participating in the Right Brain Business Plan video summit and it has helped to inspire me in making a plan and taking action. Taking action is just what I am doing this week.
