Self Care is Not Selfish

You should never feel guilty for taking care of you first and others second; after all if you don't take care of you, how will you be able to take care of others.



Here is a quick and easy list of things you can do for you and remeber...

Self care is not selfish, it's necessary!!! 

Take a long hot bubble bath.(add your favorite oils and crystals for added stress relief and self love)

Bake your favorite dessert(dark chocolate brownies), and then eat them!

Do your Nails.. Paint them up real pretty.

Buy yourself some fresh flowers.

Get a massage.

Rid yourself of toxic people(online and off).

Go for a walk in the woods, Momma Nature is a great relaxant.

Take a nap, no really sleep; your feel so much better.

Dance like a crazy person.

Do your favorite thing; write, read a book, draw, do a craft, what ever you love just do it!!!

Netflix & Chill - Binge watch your favorite series.

What ever way you decide to take care of yourself, remember to enjoy.


Blessings

Going Back to School...For My Health

The past few weeks my life has been turned upside down and inside out, but it getting back on track in a big way.

I'll Start at the Beginning...

A few weeks ago I was having a lot of pain in my right side, but not where pain from the appendix is; so my husband took me to the urgent care center. They did ex-rays, blood work and found nothing, they told me to follow up with my primary doctor; so I did.

I went to my doctor on Tuesday the 8th saw the doctor, he ordered a lot of blood test and a CT scan, and told me to come back on Monday; instead his nurse called me on Thursday and told me I was scheduled to have an MRI on Monday morning because they found a nodule on my adrenal gland and needed to get a better look at it(my first thought "I have cancer and I'm going to die", this train of thought continued all weekend.

So on Monday the 14th I go have my MRI and follow up with my doctor, I'm told I have a benign tumor of the adrenal gland, and I would need to see yet another doctor, an endocrinologist; that appointment was this past Friday. My new doctor (who is great BTW) had many tubes of blood drawn and collected 24hrs of urine to test, these test are to see if my tumor whom my girls have lovingly named Lucy (short for Lucifer, they love Supernatural) is producing hormones that I don't need in my body.

So while I am waiting on yet another set of test results to come back I got so exciting news... 

I get to go back to school... Crystal Healing School!!!

Love and Light School of Crystal Therapy, where I have gotten all my certifications from, is completely revamping their Certified Crystal Healer course with brand new content and techniques; and the awesome part about this is anyone who is a current student or alumni get the new classes for free.   

Let me explain, when you enroll and pay for any of Love and Lights courses you get lifetime access to all course content including and new content for said course. So while I'm getting my heath back on track, I will be expanding my mind and Crystal Healing knowledge.

Classes start on March 1st and will last 11 weeks, after that Love and Light will be offering a new course for Advanced Crystal Healing, I'm hoping to be able to take it also, if not this year then next year; all depends on money.

I hope all of you are doing well

Staying On Track



So after a long week with the doctors (I'll update on that stuff later), the hubby bought me a present to help me keep up with my busy life.




I am totally in love with this planner(and my wonderful Hubby) it has everything, it even has crystals hidden in it's pages. I included a more pics below so you can fall in love with it too.

The Beautiful Cover and a few of my favorite crystals
Every Page has a place for Notes, Goals, & Birthdays; there is also bigger sections for each day.

At the back of each month is a page for extra notes.

And of course no planner would be complete without stickers :)


So this was an awesome part of a not so awesome week, but I'll take the sparkles wherever I can get them.

2019 The Year of Self...

I have been trying to figure out what my word for 2019 will be and I have gone through several but none of them felt right, so I decided to meditate on it and the word that kept coming to me is Self.

To Thy Own Self Be True!!!
I want to take 2019 and concentrate on all things "Self " self-love, self-esteem, self-respect, self-care, self-healing, self-confidence; OK, you get the picture. The past 2 years have been so emotional and draining both mentally and physically that I need to take care of me and get back to being me, in all my sassy, witchy, bitchy ways.

I suppose my first "self" I should address is self-care/self-healing, for the past few weeks I have been dealing with a growth in my right side that we, my girls, hubby, and I have named Lucy(short for Lucifer) I have had a few test run and they have all come back good so next up is most likely a ct scan and or an ultrasound to find out what "Lucy" is and what needs to be done to get rid of him.

While I am out of commission dealing with "Lucy" I will work on my other "Selfs" as well.

Do you have a word for 2019? How do you care for you "Self"?

Happy New Year!!!



As we say goodbye to 2018 & Hello to 2019, I think we can all agree that our New Year needs to be better than the last one.

This year is marked by loss, we have all lost family, friends, pets, and more this year; so I am sending it out into the Universe, Goddess, God that 2019 be filled with prosperity, good health, and love.

I personally do not set resolutions at the New Year, I set goals (attainable goals) that I will do my best to meet by the end of the year; here are a few of my goals for 2019.

2019 Goals  

Lose 20lbs(I have already lost 26lbs)
Blog on a more regular basis
Have less Stress & Drama in my life
Get back in touch with my crystal loving spiritual side
Be a much less angry person

OK these are just a few of my goals, do you have any goals for this year?

I hope all of you have a very amazing 2019

Blessings
