Gratitude Friday 11/15/2013, thank you Darkness

«Thank You» Gratitude Friday is a weekly ritual I started in order to focus on all the small and big positive things that happened during my week. I invite you to join me, you'll see how much being thankful can change your life. If you want to know more about it, read my introduction post.

Hello, it’s Friday !

This week… well, I am glad it is almost over. Was not an extra good one, I scared myself, some very old feelings rushed over and invited themselves when I surely was not expected them to show up. However, taking the time to sit and write and share is what is important to me today, no matter how long my to-do list seems to be.

This week, I am thankful for:

  • The Darkness. As it reminds me there is also the Light.
  • The latest album of Katy Perry is really good. And I love how the song «Spiritual» follows the one «By The Grace Of God».
  • Creepy heavy feelings from the Past. They show me from how far I am coming from, and the path I’ve walked on since these days.
  • Monday night’s invitation at our neighbors’. Was nice to catch up.
  • My husband, never afraid to tell me things as they are.
  • Sending love packages to people.
  • Self-portraiture.
  • Laptop computer so I can work from anywhere in the house.
  • Words spoken. Spilled.
  • Old school rap. B.I.G., 2Pac, Missy…
  • The excitement that my girls had all week for today: pyjama day at school !
  • Preparing Christmas. Trying to let go of the sadness to fill myself with the anticipation.

You know what they say… when in doubt, begin. This is why I’m going in the Studio as soon as I hit «publish» to finish Rae’Ven. (PS: follow me on Instagram for daily shots from my Teal Studio).

    Paving Our Path, the come back !

    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI am so happy to have the opportunity to dream and write it all out again. If you don’t remember what this monthly ritual is about, I invite you to read that first blogpost that will explain it all to you: just click here.

    You can read my friend’s post for this month on her blog.

    Dear Universe,

    You are blessing me with so much goodness right now, but I am sometimes overwhelmed with what feels like unbearable challenges.

    November leads to December, which is a difficult month emotionally despite all the celebrations it holds. Please, wrap us with Love and laughter, both are definitely needed.
    Please, help me to achieve my goals for Inner Voices/Inner Worlds. I am struggling too much to get them done; because I deeply believe in them.

    Please, make November the month Chéridoo will get what he desires at work. He deserves to find his Happy again, he is doing so much for the girls and me.

    I beg you to please please, Help Mom overcome her smoking addiction. She needs strength. And determination. She can do it, but a little Spiritual push would be appreciated (thank you).

    Thank you thank you. thank you.

    Nolwenn.

    Hello darling Souls !

    Sometimes, when I sit down to write this special blogpost, I realize what my week what actually like. Maybe because when in the midst of it I can’t really see it for what it is. Rain replaced fog. But fog too residency in my brain instead of outside my door…

    This week, I am thankful for:

    • Couch time, watching tv shows.
    • Time in my Teal Studio.
    • Reiki. Sent, and received.
    • Support from creative friends.
    • My Pandora stations. Currently, «Rap God» by Eminem is rythming my fingers (yes, I am moving while writing, you can’t listen to it without moving to the rythm).
    • Teacher taking to heart what happen between the kids at school and take time to sort things out.
    • Meds that keep me going, no matter how bad I hate being dependent of them.
    • Journals. Both the one I write in and the one I paint in. Letting it all out.
    • Having people around me who care.

    What is in your Gratitude Bucket today ? You can MAKE time to reflect <3

      Happy Friday, sweet bean !

      I woke up early this morning, long time before my little family. The Witchlets are home, thanks to a day off from school. It’s gloomy but light grey outside. I am still in my pj’s (I have to confess: I miss the time I did not have to dress every single day).

      There is so much to be thankful for… Have you thought about it yet ?

      This week, I am thankful for:

      • Candles. Especially during a power outage like yesterday evening. The light came back right in time when the girls went to bed after the story.
      • Warmth.
      • The email telling me some of my pages made it in the book I submitted them for. I jumped and bounced all over the place ! I will be published you guys ! :D
      • Music.
      • New ideas.
      • Friends.
      • Unexpected gifts. I feel the love.
      • Magic.
      • Seeing Koala reading all she can.
      • The efforts Grenouille is making everyday. The Being that she is (kind, filled with care and she forgives for no one else).
      • Finishing this special comissioned painting for my collector, I like to call her my Golden Customer.
      • Cooking. Prepping in advance. I am a squirrel and love having reserves of food, it is highly comforting.
      • Inspiring songs.
      • Seeing my friends’ dreams coming true.
      • Seeing my friends the squirrels on a regular basis again (thank you to the big Cedar trees around our home).

      My list could grow out of control this week, so I am stopping here ;)

        Currently. In My World.

        Reading «Legion», the first solo book of Kami Garcia. Just finished «Graveminder» by Melissa Marr.

        Watching my favorite now oldies Supernatural, Criminal Minds, The Vampire Diaries, Grey’s Anatomy of course… and some newbies like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., American Horror Story: Coven (I like Emma Roberts, and well, it’s about witches, I could not let this one go), Sleepy Hollow, Reign.

        Confessing that I watch iCarly on Netflix with my daughters, and actually find it quite funny most of the time.

        Falling in love with Parenthood. I have 5 seasons to catch up with. Thanks Kelly Barton ;)

        Listening to several Pandora Stations, my fav: The Civil Wars station, Eminem station when I need a good kick, P!nk station.

        Simmering my first online class.

        Hoping that we will continue to bond as a strong family

        Planning our Christmas presents. (AND Cheridoo & I will pass the big 1.0 dating anniversary this December. Want to do something fun).

        Embracing who I am.

        Avoiding laundry. yup. And people sometimes, too.

        Cooking and prepping in advance, so I suffer once and for all and limit the meals to just being assembled.

        Feeling overwhelmed. lonely. hopeful.

        Loving the sun on my skin. How obsessive my daughters can be (it has its reverse as well and can be a pain). Emails exchanges with TrueSisters.

        Still Loving how self-portraiture is a tool I turn to.

        Obsessing over my new spirograph set (not that easy actually).

        Pushing off doing the work that I know needs to be done. This fear of failure will have the death of me.

        Learning InDesign thanks to the book suggested by my TrueSister Mindy.

        What’s going on in your world ?
