The song in its entirety is heartbreaking and inspiring. Here are the most inspiring lines, the ones that remind me that we start over new each day. Live in the moment and don’t regret.
"Always Starting Over"
If we’re always
Every brand-new morning
Then we’re always
With the end in doubt
We can leave life for tomorrow
Or grieve all that we thought we’d do
Or make each moment new
All that has happened is…

The winter weather seems to be following me. After two more weeks with snow, I thought I would get a break down south. Instead, we had an ice storm and record cold. The cold is getting to me. As much as I try to moisturize, my skin is dry.
I haven't been perfect in my new year goals, but I have kept up with what I intended with those goals. I'm not looking for perfection, just to find the time for the things that are important to me. Life can sometimes run away with you. It's…Continue
It's difficult to adjust to our new living situation when we can't seem to settle into a routine. We've had two major snow storms in as many weeks. Imbolc was celebrated through the storm. I'm glad for the reminder that the earth will waken soon. I will miss the spring flowers that will bloom. Next autumn I will have my chance to plant bulbs that will be early harbingers of spring.
I have marks on my arm; proof that I still struggle with depression. I did so well with the stress of…Continue

This has been a transformational week. We cleaned out the house last weekend. Filled a dumpster and donated four car loads to goodwill. Monday we finished laundry and packed what we want for the next five months. Tuesday morning the mover showed up to pack up our house. Within eight hours everything was boxed. That night we moved into my parent’s house. Early Wednesday the movers were back to clear everything out. By early afternoon, my house was bare. We walked out for the last time. …

I'm trying to figure out what to do with a couple of items frozen to the ground. The first is my offering dish that I use for mature spirits. It's frozen to the ground. Hopefully it will be lose tomorrow with the rain. Maybe I'll be able to dig into the ground to free the statue, that is if I can find it. I'm not exactly certain where it is. I feel I need to make an effort, since as part of the spell I said I would unbury it at the end.
Next Thursday we will have closed on the house. A week ago I thought we might never sell. A week from today, we will be living at my parents, the house will be packed.
Plans and routines will be flipped upside down for the next couple of weeks. It's a good thing. Resolutions won't be met, life takes priority.
My wish is that this home will serve the buyer's needs as well as it has served ours. I desire a smooth completion of the sale. So mot it be!

It’s been a slow start to the new year. Mostly because I’ve been sick all week. I broke down and went to the doctor yesterday. Medication has started to make a difference, but I have a way to go to good health. Staying home sick yesterday meant my little boy spent the day in my lap. He was sweet and loving.
Being ill all week did put me behind in my fitness goals for the week. I couldn’t run yesterday. One day short of my goal. I won’t be running in the frigid cold, not while…Continue

I've been writings lot in the last few days because it's been a slow week at work. As much as I love to write, I know I won't have as much time most weeks. My goal is to write once a week.
I've earned my first degree and have taken the second degree course.I have first degree because I wanted to be part of the Correlian tradition. I never finished my second degree project. One thing I love about the Correlian tradition is that the information is there for us to learn. Some day I may…Continue

The subject of pay came up in office gossip today. We didn’t talk about our own pay, but rather what the rumored offer was to someone who didn’t actually take the job. Then what the starting salary for junior engineers might be. All it proved was that if you want to make more money, it’s all about timing and how much does a company need you. It makes me wonder if I could have made more money for making my move.
If I take a look at my situation, by moving alone, my pay rate goes from…Continue

Each year I put together goals that I hope to achieve. Often, I don’t make all the goals. Sometimes, I don’t make any of the goals. New Years is a fresh starting point to try again; a new beginning.
New Year’s resolutions 2015
1. New nail design each week with photos posted to social sites.
2. Write a blog post once a week.
3. Keep up with exercise routine.
4. Live my spiritual path.
Other things I want to remember are to prioritize my life: myself, my…Continue
2014 is coming to a close and what a year it has been. I focused a lot on the mundane this year as opposed to the spiritual. Last February I started school to become a certified nail technician. I have no intention of changing careers. This was done all for the love of nails. It’s a passion for me to create wearable art.
2014 has brought more travel than I’ve had in years. Starting in February, I got to go to Vegas. It was work related but still a fun experience. Plus, I got to wear…Continue

2013 was rough year for me. I know that I’m very lucky and have a blessed life. We may not have a lot, but we have what we need and have a warm loving home. Knowing this makes suffering from anxiety and depression frustrating. I feel like I have no right to have such negative thoughts and it was a deep hole that I was living in. Things that used to be fun had turned into misery. I finally gained the courage to go to the doctor in June. I got put on medication and started to feel better. I…Continue
