Thea’s Tarot is being re-released and I am really, really considering if I can swing a deck.

I think the Moon Mandala Online Course looks fantastic.

Am so glad to find The Dua Journal: connect with Allah, live with Ihsan, be proud of your Iman. Now I know what I am buying my Muslim niece for Eid.

I am planning to play this game next winter.

This is embarrassing, but it seems I have been cutting my toenails wrongly my whole life. It’s tricky because I have reduced sensation and limited fine motor skills but I can’t always get to a professional to help me. So, I found this guide – revelation!

I am getting into using my Passion Planner. Xandra’s videos are fantastic.

“We all experience ‘soul’ moments in life when we see a magnificent sunrise, hear the call of the loon, see the wrinkles in our mother’s hands or smell the sweetness of a baby. During these moments, our body, as well as our brain, resonates as we experience the glory of being a human being.”

 ~ Marion Woodman

A reminder that we don’t always have to be trying to upgrade. Enough is golden:

In the early years (starting with the year I chose fearless), my word helped pull me forward as I got closer and closer to the authentic and meaningful life I longed for. I made some big life-altering decisions in those years, partly because my annual word helped clarify my intentions and chart my path.
This past year, though, there’s been a shift, and my life has felt deliciously close to what I was dreaming of all of those years when I was choosing words. I don’t feel as much like I need an annual word to draw me forward anymore. 
The only thing I can think of for 2019 is “more of the same”.

And I know it’s always the ‘getting there’ that is shown as the hard part, but in my experience arriving can be unexpectedly challenging. Arriving at joy or arriving into remission, it all takes time and support to switch out of survival mode into a nuanced space where we can embrace some good.
