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…

honest expressions on transition and growth

bold musings about ascension and angst

healing wisdom mixed with seasoned compassion

 timely insights for those working at remaining both open and grounded.

daily relief in the form of photo-poetry

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!

Guest Post

I have a guest post today over at the blog of Amber Skye Forbes. The title is: The Road to Resilience. I did something a bit different – I write about my views  on grief, loss and how to thrive through a psycho-spiritual lens.  I draw from both my experiences as a therapist and the philosophy of the Mental Health Recovery movement. Please drop by and leave a comment if you’d like.
