Gratitude - Jan 13, 2022, food mention 

Woke up this morning and got straight to work. Had a fairly productive day before taking the cat to the vet.
Coffee.
Made a yummy bean soup, which was very satisfying on a day like today.
Reese's Pieces. ("Get out of my Store, Jim!")

Gratitude - Jan 12, 2022 

The luxury of being physically tired and not having to drive anywhere and being able to work at my own pace.
Coffee.
That I don't remember all the things that happened in the past 3 years.
Validation of my life choices, and respect and support from people who matter to me.

and all shall be well,
and all manner of things shall be well"

Gratitude - Jan 11, 2022 

I'm thankful for music. I'm thankful that I can feel a certain way, and find a song that helps me to process that feeling more fully.
I'm thankful that I've gotten over a difficult slump and I'm motivated and actually getting work done, in January, and in spite of Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Did I just record a video talking about the Tarot and how it relates to cybersecurity?

Yes, yes I did.

Gratitude - Jan 10, 2022 

Something clicked once again in watching Ram Dass videos on Gaia, both in terms of making a peace with my past, and reaffirming that I'm on the right path now, both professionally and spiritually.
I'm thankful for the rush of inspiration I've experienced in developing content, killing my editor, and finding the confidence to put myself out there.

Mother-in-law has added me to her Gaia account. So much good stuff to watch!

Gratitude - Jan 9, 2022, abuse adj 

I'm thankful to have reached out to that friend I mentioned yesterday, and we're going to Zoom this week and catch up.
I'm thankful that I took some time to watch some videos on narcissism this weekend, and got a better understanding of what happened in that friendship I had to end.

Gratitude - Jan 8, 2022 

When I was homeless just after leaving my ex-husband, there were friends who kept me off the street. Of those friends, there's only one that I'm still friends with. She is such a beautiful soul and I'm so thankful that she's in my life.

Gratitude - Jan 7, 2022, and subtoot 

1. Playne meditation game, which helps me stay disciplined about daily meditation.
2. My husband, the most supportive and wonderful person I've ever been blessed to have in my life.
3. The freedom to work for myself doing something I believe in and am passionate about.
4. Coffee.
5. My home, and the very real prospects of fixing it up this year.
6. Being in the incredibly privileged position of not having to leave the house for anything at this moment.

Trying to get into a habit of remembering and expressing gratitude for the good things in my life.

Tarot 

Me: Today is gonna be a good day.
Tarot: 10 of Swords
Me: Oh, come on!

As a former Catholic, one of my favorite things to do is to find a statue or shrine dedicated to the BVM and offer prayers to Brigid. I suspect both Mary and Jesus would approve.

And I'm not even that active here. This is one of my alt accounts.

Now that I'm maintaining this instance, I should probably keep an eye on the fediblock tag, although it seems like I'm the only active user here.

NASA apparently hired 24 theologians to study how humanity would react to alien life and I'm wondering how does one actually get that sort of gig.

Also, if there's any news source on this story that isn't a tabloid?

I think this is going to be one of those years that the Yule trees stay up until Imbolc.

I've been listening to Bill Moyer's interview of Joseph Campbell (the Power of Myth) for the first time in probably about 20 years. I'm not sure exactly how long it's been, but I used to have it on audio cassette back in the day.

It has been like consciously reconnecting with a part of myself that's too easily lost in the day-to-day. Very different experience listening to it in my teens and twenties, and listening to it again in my forties.
