Thankful Thursday - 15th March

A bit late in finally posting this Thankful Thursday.  I spent the evening looking blankly at fabric trying to work out what would go best together to make a pencil roll for my beautiful niece & goddess daughter.

Today I am grateful for:
  • Making a start on Goddess Girl's pencil roll. 
  • Getting photos taken for the felting tutorial in Bushcraft Magazine.  Just need to edit & send.
  • My bonus week on Christine Kane's Uplevel YOur Life course.  Starting in full next Monday.
  • Some amazing learning & personal growth on my NLP course this weekend. 
  • More clearing out.  Three bags taken to charity shop.  Three plus more to go out this weekend.  Hurrah for Spring Clearing!  It feels soooo good!
  • Reading Dr Seuss to Roo, after hearing him 'read' it to himself so sweetly whilst not knowing it, just from the pictures.
  • Menu plan sorted for the week.
  • Lovely veg in the Abel & Cole box, plus a free bottle of organic olive oil.  Thanks guys!
  • Catching up with friend yesterday at toddler group & our boys just loving playing together.
  • My Beloved having the kids all weekend daytime so I could go off & do my thing at the NLP course.  House was a devastation zone on return which interestingly made me feel less guilty about my inability to keep a tidy house!
  • Sunny afternoons this week.  And time down the allotment.  yum.

Wishcrafting - Spirit Wishes




What is your Spirit wishing for?  Jamie Ridler asks today on wishcrafting wednesday.

Usually I try to write my response to the prompts before looking at everyone elses.   But today, I sneeked a peek at my friend Dominees post.  If you haven't met Dominee yet, you should ( I nominated her for this award a while back).  She is Beautiful.  Her post was so very lovely about how previously she'd have said 'purpose', which was exactly what my reaction was, but now she feels that she has that with her awesome website and writing her truth out into the world as a beacon (my words not hers). 

In reading her words, and checking out another post that she referenced about body image & how we can get knocked back by ignorant words, I felt sad and glad all at once.  So very Glad for my beautiful Goddess sister that she has found this wonderous place, and sad for myself that I am still sometimes beating myself up for not having my soul purpose

And I realised, as I was spring cleaning the bathroom, going round the dirty edges with a toothbrush (don't worry it wasn't anyone's you know.  Seriously, t'was the cleaning one) really doing a deep clean, that what my Spirit is wishing for is EXPRESSION. 
In that moment, of whatever I am doing.  I get too hung up on some grand notion of Purpose.  Which actually stops me from expressing my spirit into the world, as I get caught up in a web of shoulds.  My spirit wishes to express the joyful shalls, & leave the shoulds at the gate.

And just expressively sparkle my spirit into the world

Am I obsessive?

OK, so a question.  Is it obsessive to have watched this at least ten times tonight?  Sheesh.  It is so totally awesome.  I kinda knew the song, but with the video.  Well, its hypnotic!  Goyte & Kimba rock!  Who knew I might like modern music.

EDIT: Grrr!  I can't seem to embed that video here.  Its obviously too late & I have been obsessively watching/listening to this video!  Go watch it via the link.  You won't regret it.  Well, I hope not, but if you do at least its only 4 minutes long! x
