September witchy wrap up

Although I am back in the “Real World” I haven’t really returned- to the same me  that I was before my little “episode”. This is infact a good thing- I am finding myself a whole lot less stressed over things I have no or little control over. I can smile & carry on and if an obstacle- or issue arrives- one I can do nothing with personally- I am passing it on to the person who can- instead of bottling things up and trying to do somebody else’s job. Why I never listened to my partner who all this time- has said ” As long as you do your best in your job- let everyone else get on with their’s”.

So here I am still under Doctors orders- but am slowly weening off the med’s- listening to the good advise- protecting myself daily with a sheild of bright rainbow bubbles and generally being- feeling positive.

My interest in all my favourite hobbies has returned- I have more energy- find time passing slower when doing my favourite stuff too.  More me time and family time, witchy time- nature time.

So September- my birthday month has been a complete turn around from the beginning to its end and I feel I can now look to the future from a better perspective. I quite like the new Me!

So I have just done my first 3 day stint back in to work after 55 days away. Everyone was so pleased to see me back and I have felt very blessed and a little bit Molly Coddled. I am so grateful for the friendship & support my collegues have shown me- BUT the underlieing issues in the workplace itself are still bubbling away. My boss assured me all was in order, all issues or most where sorted. Although I have been in for only 3 days- having slid back so easily into my position- I have picked up on the vibes around me. The same vibes that pushed me out of sync.

So, the only thing at the moment – is to make sure I am well protected against all this negativity- try not to let the others bring me down. I can listen and offer solutions to my colleagues- but I always get too emtionally involved and take it to heart. I’m not ready for that again- not yet.

So without trying to seem heartless and unfriendly- I have been walking away, when backbiting starts, not allowing customers or colleagues to intimidate me and instead of rushing to fit in a day and a halfs work in a day!- Just doing my own days worth in that day. Oh and not taking work home with me.

Ultimately, I need to move on and in another direction- But whilst I have a job in this world recession- I need to keep it, until I can find some thing else.

Where all this will lead, I do not know. But I thank the Goddess for seeing me through and making me realise there are many good reasons for me to be around- My 2 children & wonderful hubby- my family & friends. The beautiful world we live in, mother nature and the magic all around us.

2008 Blog Wrap Up.

Well- where to begin-As 2008 fades away and we are now into new beginnings- new year 2009- clean slate and all that. I have to take stock- re-evaluate- and adapt. My wonderful partner- to whom I became handfasted with in February this year- Has been literally thrown on the scrap heap at the young age of 52! He has become permanently disabled and so my priorities have had to change.  I need more time – on my days off work- to care & look after himself & my family- so computer time must be cut ( I am an addict) to the computer that is!!!. I am so grateful for all the fellow bloggers I have met and wish everyone the very best for 2009.  Just to say- I will be leaving my blogpage- and concentrating on homelife- due to the changing circumstances. I will still be popping into whitewicca.com. Hope to keep intouch- one way or another. Much love & light.Brightest Blessings.

I work in a health & beauty spa- surrounded by gorgeous therapists- who spend alot of time & money on their looks. When I arrived into work today- the senior hairstylist said to me- Your highlights look fantastic- where did you go- how much did they charge you? Well said I- I added lemon juice to my final rinse and let it dry naturally in the sun! You can’t beat what nature provides. Brightest Blessings.

To just be there

A very dear friend and colleague at work- recently lost a best mate- due to a motoring accident- quite out of the blue and at a young age 26. She was unconsolable for many hours and because she was in a differant country- had to make arrangements to get back to the Uk for the funeral. It was so difficult to know what to say & do- she really needed to be with family and the friends of her mate- but couldn’t be for awhile- with flight arrangements and all. All I could do was be there- Get her safely home- make a cuppa- be a shoulder to cry on. She flew to the Uk Tuesday & returned Friday. I still wonder if I could have done or said more- I felt quite sick in the stomach for her- and now she is back with us- it is still dificult to know what to say or do. I suppose- to just be there- when she needs me will be enough. Brightest Blessings.

It is quite well known at work- my chosen path in life- and to my surprise it has been warmly accepted. Quite often during break times, I am asked – so what are u up to this week and I generally have something to tell. Today during my afternoon break one of the young gym staff members- told me all about his spiritual journey and began recommending books for me to read. To his & my surprise we had both read similar if not the same books. It may not seem odd to anyone else but he is at least 20 years younger than me & from a strong Catholic family. He did say most of his friends think he is a bit strange- but he also said- who are they to judge. A very sound & enlightened young man.  I am amazed everyday at what joy this Pagan path is showing me and all the amazing new friends I have found- onward & upward. Brightest Blessings.

Sometimes I feel like Mommy to everyone at my work place- I sit & listen to the woes and the good things too-The back biting and the super bitching- without showing favouritism or adding my 2 penneth. But sometimes it is just too much- There seems to be a divide between the seniors & the juniors ( not an age thing) length of time with the company thing! But today the divide got even bigger- thru tittle tattle. I wish I could knock their heads together and get them to talk to each other as this bitching is not good for anyone. The negative atmosphere can be cut with a knife it is so thick. Thank the Goddess I am protected by my own rainbow bubble- just need to put one round my workspace too!
