The Season of Reflection and Introspection

It has been a while since my last post. Something about the holidays that sucks me right in.. and I mean that in the best way!

All of my free time went towards making gifts for friends for hunting for special treasures for our children, or filling orders for my body care business, Moonsway Organic Bodycare. 

I was blessed with more business than I have ever had this holiday season and thank the gods and goddesses every day!

Also had the pleasure of having quality time with some close friends of mine that I do not normally get to spend too much time with.. mainly because they have jobs and I am a stay at home mommy. (Which, still... is very much a job!!! For the record.)

Then there were many times I have found myself in the kitchen nearly all day, music playing, candles lit, incense swirling and magick growing and twirling all around as my hours were spent conjuring up new products and remedies, completely enveloped in a spark of inspiration and creativity, wanting to ride it and make it last as long as possible. Pure. Magick.

December is always a magickal time for me. And each one that passes, I find myself diving deeper into myself and my spirituality.

It is a natural occurrence that I believe is inspired by the stillness of the season. It inspires reflection and introspection.. which fits right in with the new year and Yule!

There were a few times I found inspiration for a post, (which was not hard considering all the crafting I was doing! ) opened the laptop and started to type... but would often be pulled away or distracted by one of our children, or something would happen and I would walk away.. until I would have to put it off, and then day or so later when I had another moment to even think about my blog, I had pretty much lost all inspiration for the post. Lol

Not that I could not write one... that would have been easy. 

It just pains me to sit down and write when my heart is not in it. I would rather wait until my passion arises again and start a new post! That is how quality writing is done, in my opinion anyway.

The feeling behind the words is what makes it a good read. 

Over the holidays I made an "Annointing Ritual Oil" for a fellow witchy friend, "Blessing or Mojo Bags" for a few friends of mine, and have come up with a variety of new ways to replace even more commercially made products in our home by making them myself.  :) (among other things that I just can't remember right now)

All of which makes for perfect writing material, don't you agree?? Lol

The image I shared here in this post is one I came across just before the new year arrived, and I am so glad I did. It has simplified the very existence of which I yearn for, and I have referred back to it often as a reminder.

It tells me that it is OK that I spend more time with my kids than on my blog. It is OK that my free time is devoted to making things or doing magick for people I care about. It reminds me of my priorities and helps me to keep them straight.

I will eventually get around to posting all the recipes and remedies I created (and am continually concocting!), but I don't plan on stressing it.

May you all find yourself with less time staring at a screen and more time finding creative outlets to express yourself, playing with your children, or finding ways to be closer to nature. 

That is my wish for you all this new year.
