Yes, February is the shortest month of the year, but geez...did it seem to speed by for you, too?
On the Full Moon eclipse, I turned 44. Part of this year’s birthday gift to myself included blocking out the afternoon to do a deep dive into my personal astrology, obsessing over my solar return, progressed sun and natal charts.
I don’t know if you do this at all, but it is truly an insightful experience and bound to put a fire under your butt, especially when you realize you are smack in the middle of a Uranus opposition (aka: smack dab in midlife!)
This is the stage of life when most begin to take stock of their dreams and ambitions and if you’ve been unconscious to the course your life has taken, if you have just drifted by letting life carry you where it will without any intentional directives from your own soul, then this is the time you’re likely to experience a midlife crisis.
Truthfully, I’ve been taking stock of my own dreams and ambitions, and have to say that, for the most part, I am very pleased with the course of my life.
I’ve raised some pretty amazing kids who are doing some awesome things with their own journeys.
I’m blessed with three gorgeous granddaughters!
I am head-over-heels in love with my soul mate!
I have some of the best friends any gal can ask for!
I’ve travelled to most of the continental United States and have checked off many places on my bucket list-- Ireland, Spain, France, Morocco, to name a few!
But I do admit this Uranus Awakening has made me reevaluate how I’ve been choosing to spend my time lately. The last thing I want is to become complacent, and I fear I have given more than I care to my social media habits and not enough to my career goals.
To that end, if you we are friends on Facebook, you may have noticed how this revelation has manifested for me-- as in, I am not hanging around on Facebook much anymore. I tried to deactivate my account, but then found out I can’t have a biz page without a personal profile so my plan B is to tighten up and get better at managing my consumption of social media. If you notice that I’m not around as much on Facebook anymore, don’t take it personally. It’s just that I have an ever growing list of things I want to create, places I want to see, experiences I want to have-- and these will get priority.
You might begin to notice changes around here, too. For instance, I’ve decided to not restock the yoni egg boutique and will be liquidating my current inventory. (Use CouponCode: LIQUID17 for 50% off, if you are interested.) After these beauties are gone, they are gone. While I 100% believe in this practice, and encourage every woman to have a yoni egg practice, I know my talents are best served elsewhere.
The short of it is, in taking a personal look deep into my soul desires, I’ve gotten a clear vision of where I really want to be in five years, where I want to take the online biz into the future and honestly, its time to start steering this ship in that direction!
Plus, I want to cook more (I've been told I bake a fierce Zen Chicken) and expand my Foodie/ Oenophile repertoire!
And I want to read more...
...and want to write more...
...and I want to share my creations on the blog.
If this is going to happen, I just have to make room for it!
I’m dedicated to creating a beautiful online experience for myself and others and I’m super charged up about where this is going.
