Well it has been quite a long while since I wrote a blog post. I have been active in other platforms, mostly Instagram, but even there I had to take it easy. Life feels very full and busy lately, which is not a bad thing. I just want to write a post about what I have been up to in the last few months.
In May, I hosted a writing challenge on Instagram with Alaina from ExploringlyYours. The name of the challenge was #MayYouWriteLikeTheFool. The goal was for us to take a leap, much like The Fool from the tarot, and write everyday, to develop the habit and a writing practice. I learned a lot about myself and my writing during that month. I followed one story line for most of the month, writing short vignettes every day. It was a story that I didn’t even know was inside me, waiting to be told.
I am planning to go back to that story and flesh it out more. That will be the one story I will write to satisfy my goal of writing and self-publishing a collection of short stories by my 2017 birthday. I had originally said I was going to write 12 short stories in 12 months…that goal was very ambitious and it did not materialize. Maybe next year will be the year when I actually complete it.
In the last few months I have also been learning about the chakras with the goal of learning to balance my own and in the future help others balance theirs through energy healing. The learning has been slow, or should I say the studying has been slow. There is so much to learn about the chakras, I am sure I will be learning about them for many years to come.
I have also started to make wire wrapped crystal necklaces from my crystal collection. I am kind of obsessed with this project and I’m excited for the creative process, but also because I get to share beautiful crystals with other fellow crystal lovers. I am posting some of them on my Instagram account, but most of them are in my Depop store, which you can visit here.
Lastly, I have been thinking a lot about where my life is going. I feel like I’m just…you know…living without a direction or vision. That is probably something I will write many blog posts about, so I will not go into details here. I trust that some exciting changes are coming as a result of these inquiries :).
What have you been up to this summer? I’d love to read about it in the comments.
