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.
