Share Your World ~ Retrograde Edition

As Mercury joins the rest of the retrograde party tomorrow ( 4-28-16) with Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, let’s take a pause. I enjoy Cee’s Share Your World challenges as a way to get off the merry-go-round and change-up my typical intense blogging style.

So let’s get started: public domain

When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen? 

I prefer pens to pencils because they leave a stronger mark. Pencil is great for sketching though.

What’s your choice: jigsaw, word, maze or numeric puzzles?

I lack the patience for crosswords, but will take a stab at one now and again. I do like jigsaw, but really don’t want to invest the time. A few years back I did complete a castle jigsaw and it was quite a lovely finished product. I am very fond of castles, so that was the draw. Typically I get my puzzle fix at lumosity. I really like the variety of games (excluding the mathematical ones). They are challenging, fun, and allegedly great for improving memory, multitasking, facial recognition, and more.

Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself? 

My modern planetary ruler is in Leo. So watch this video and then take an educated guess.

List five of your favorite blogs.

There are so many blogs that I follow and read religiously. I will pick five that are featuring topics and images that impact my life in a big way, in present time. I find that there is so much fluidity lately to my interests and concerns. Thanks to all the amazing bloggers for making this such a challenging decision.

It really is hard to choose, but choose I will…

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

Last week was not one I would want to repeat, BUT, all my tests results taken last week were favorable. Also, I did a guest post for GrievingD and I am getting  requests to contribute more material for future guest blogs. I would be delighted to do more of these, so please contact me if you are interested in having me write something for your blog, website, or magazine.

This week I had a job interview and it went really well. The interviewer told me that I am definitely in the running. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I await the decision. I feel this program would be a good fit for me at this time.

The next few days look exciting with prospects of visiting old and new friends. Next week is quite open at this point. I kinda like it that way. Why don’t we all take a breath together and let the world sail by? Doesn’t that feel good!

Happy Mercury Retrograde!

    1. I try very hard to focus on the positive, despite years of hard wiring the negative. I am told this neg hard wiring is a survival mechanism, to keep humans on the planet. Maybe we can do away with the need for that wiring. It was validating to be respected, heard, and appreciated 🙂

      1. Focusing on the positive sounds good. I think it is very hard to change this inner emotional set-point. It may be hard to change a habit, like to take up regular exercise. But changing a habit of thinking is even harder, at least, how I experience this. The universe supported me here by constantly tapping me on the shoulder with burned out light bulbs and other stuff when I went into anger. Lately, it is not the burned out light bulbs that much, but I drop things when I am angry, or something else in my surroundings drops. It is always like a small wake-up call, “Watch your thoughts. Drop it!”
        I have found that the communication signs by the universe can be customized. There is a process on choosing particular communication signs and agreeing on the meaning of the signs.

      2. this customization process sounds great. I would like to know more about it. I figured the scientist in you would understand. It is progress for me that I will go find the positive. Years ago, that was not the case. hugs, Linda

      3. Customuzing is simply communication. To tell the universe, “You know, I appreciate that you let me know via burned out light bulbs that my anger is bad. But can you choose something less expensive, please?” And then wait and see. It is like adjusting the communication with another person.
        Another example: I never know whether a thought in my mind is from my spirit guide or from my ego. Therefore, I asked for an additional sign. Then I often got some cracking noise in my surroundings, like the cracking of a window frame which adjusts to a temperature difference. I payed attention to it and found after a while that this seemed to correlate with thoughts from guidance.
        I wish you much success with customizing the guidance system.
