Sometimes, it’s fun to look back. And there’s no better time than on the night of a Full Moon. It’s at this phase in the cycle when you can clearly see how far you’ve come and let go of anything (with gratitude) that no longer serves you.
In honor of tonight’s special Strawberry Supermoon, let’s take this opportunity to throw it back…
It is not lost on me that the last time I published a blog post was almost exactly one year ago, and I also was sick. Apparently, when I enter a “forced rest,” I get the itch to revive this baby. Why? Probably because we have some unfinished business.
As I’m sure many of you can relate, I spent all week looking forward to the weekend. I’ve had a rough go of it recently [as you may recall from my post a few days ago] and I had big plans for some R&R. And then what ends up happening? I GET SICK.
[insert The Bachelor chick “ugh” GIF again] Like, seriously?
This past year has been a doozy. We’ve all had to acclimate to a new lifestyle in some way or another. For some, that has meant transitioning from working in an office environment to working remotely. While remote work may sound glamourous, it does present its own unique set of problems.
For those of us with kiddos, the constant distractions can make productivity tough. Maybe you don’t have a dedicated office, so you don’t feel settled or grounded. Some remote workers just aren’t self-starters, so they have a really hard time motivating themselves. But guess what! There’s a crystal for that!
Recently, I asked my Charging Sky Instagram community which crystal-related topics they would want to know more about. The first response that came in was “how to cleanse crystals.” Since it also happens to be the first thing you should do when you receive a new stone, I figured it was the perfect way to start a new season of blog posts. In this specific article, I’ll discuss the most common ways to cleanse stones (i.e., smudging, water, natural light, salt, rice, and meditation), and include my own personal commentary (obvs) on each method.
Hello! It’s been awhile, eh? Want to know why I’ve been away? You don’t? Well, I’m going to tell you anyway—I suck at multitasking.
When I was younger, I thought that the ability to multitask was the most important character trait someone could have. Every job posting that I read had “Must be able to multitask” on its qualifications list, so of course I would write in my cover letter, “I am an excellent multitasker.” What’s worse is that I actually thought I was an excellent multitasker.
Coming to Boise, Collin and I only knew a handful of people who lived in the area. Luckily, we had our kids (and our co-parenting family) as our tribe to lean on for support during this transition.
After some time at my job, I got to know my coworkers pretty well and spent time with them outside of the office. We lunched, shared TMI, went to birthday parties, celebrated divorces, yoga’d, and happy hour’d. This was my “MHD” tribe.
