I’m Concerned: Please Read

2019Nova

There’s blogs that I visit more regularly that others. Not to say, each of you isn’t incredibly talented and haven’t attention worthy material, because that isn’t true.

I’ve noticed that The Alchemist’s Studio hasn’t been in my notifications. I also noticed that he’s not posted a blog update since the second to last Wednesday in May (two weeks now).

That feels “off” to me. Us “feelers” can understand why that’s alarming. If anyone has direct contact with our fellow blogger, wold you please reach out to him and make certain he’s ok?

I’m sure he would appreciate the kind gesture. I’m sure any of us would should we be “absent” for some time.

Namaste

A Time 4 Healing

©️2019Nova

The universal alignment showed me this as soon as I opened Pinterest. Is it a sign? I’d like to believe so. The saying goes,

” It’s always darkest before the dawn.”

So this evening, as I say farwell to one of the hardest weekends I’ve been through, I look forward to these coming days of healing.

How about all of you? Does anyone feel a sense of transition in the midst? Anyone feel a sense of change in a situation? I pray that healing patches up all the hurt you carry. I pray that you recognize the light shining and allow yourself the new opportunities your future is meant to have.

Namastè Sweet Souls

My Mental Health Journey 12 ( I Just Can’t & You Can’t Expect Me To)

©️2019NovaNamaste

Here’s my confession:

If a post is a personal story, informational about a topic I’m interested in, fictional, humorous, music related, short in length, or labeled with a really catchy title, I’ll end up reading it in it’s entirety.

Otherwise, and I may have missed an additional exception or two, I will skim through and catch the main ideas, so I can comment and leave support.

If that offends you, please unfollow me now.

Now that those lose feathers have been shaken off, allow me to explain.

I PROMISE you, I WANT to read every single word of every single post every single one of you have, and will write!!

Truth be told, I can’t. Number one, I don’t have the time. My two babies keep me busy. I’m a mother first, before anything else.

Number two, if I did so, I wouldn’t have a blog of my own. I wouldn’t have time to write. I love writing, and I’m loving interacting with all of you, as well.

Number three, my brain is so easily overwelmed that I can’t read a whole lot at once. When I worked at Bob Evens (hey that’s something you all didn’t know about me!), my biggest challenge was keeping up with the menu because of the amount of information I had to learn in such a short time. It was seasonally changing, too!

And number four, I am a multitasker. Every moment of my life, literally, I am doing at least 2 things. I have to. It’s just a must for my life.

I’ve recently had a follower take offense to this, and that hurt me. I’m one of the most supportive bloggers I know.. And that’s regardless of every factor other than we are all trying to accomplish the same goal… Write good material. This blogger wasn’t satisfied with my amount of effort and dismissed me completely.

Personally, I feel if you have such high levels of your followers, the intention of writing needs evaluated. I also prefer you don’t follow me in the first place…

We all do what we humanly can, and we’re our own worst critics. We don’t need expectations like read every post I write word for word, comment every single time, like and share it, on top of our own self sabotage.

That’s it for now.

Urgent Request: Update

©️2019NovaNamaste

I’m asking for continued prayer please.

His condition hasn’t changed, although we do know minimal swelling and no neuro damage.

I’m needing prayer to keep the irrationality of my anxiety at bay. I need to be hopeful and strong in my faith.

Thank you so much everyone 🦋🌺

To The Strong Ones

©️2019NovaNamaste

Strong ones, this is for you. I know your struggle; I’ve lived it for years. Know you’re not alone, not ever. I’m so proud of how brave and resilient you are. I’m also so proud of when you accept your mortality and admit you’re not ok. You’re amazing, always have been and always will be. Don’t forget that 🌻🌻🌼🌼

The Mighty App

💙

I’m on ” The Mighty App”!! I vaguely remember seeing this app before but it didn’t catch my attention. It just must not have been the right point in time for me to incorporate it into my life, because it’s indeed an app that I value and recommend.

It’s a place to find a support community. If you cope with schizophrenia, or irritable bowl syndrome, anxiety or vertiligo, you will find a support group here. It’s a place to speak openly and confidentially with others… Who will listen.

Everyone, Ms Brianna, over @urselflove, just published her first post here on WordPress! I’ve been privileged to assist her with her blogging and I wanted to ask if you all would give her a warm welcome. Her goal is to create a place of positivity and to help in anyway she can to those who pass by her blog. She’s getting a feel for the WP community, and I assured her that this was the best place for community support.

Would you please leave her some love in the comments? Thank you, loves!!
