In these crazy years, stage one was set by Corona. Stage two now seems to be about total meaningless war and a lot of bullshit in its wake, pardon my French.
But my suggestion to settings in a hopefully better future is to do everything possible to live life to its fullest each second I get here on Mother Earth.
Carpe Diem – Seize the day, the famous words from the Roman poet Horace (“Carpe diem quam minimum credula postero” – seize the now and only trust the future as much as you have to) seems fit to describe my life philosophy.
What is important to me is what is happening right here as I write this blog post for you, dear readers and followers.
My husband watches TV, the little wise, old dog lies right next to me, and the three philosophical cats are all over the place, doing what philosophical cats do when not eating, namely sleeping with a quarter of an eye open.
As I go through our week in my thoughts, I instinctively smile and feel complete contentment and inner peace.
Our friends from the school of life, well, everything has changed for the so much better since we first met about a year ago.
We have many more visits of more than welcome guests. We go for many more visits ourselves. And we experience true friendship, sincere responsibility, and heartwarming hours.
We are always together with our friends who live so close by that we only need to take a short walk to meet with them.
But we are also ourselves from time to time, as my husband and I firmly believe and live by the fact that to be good friends, we need to recharge our mental and physical batteries every once in a while.
Next week will be busy as well. Monday is a cleaning-the-house day. Tuesday, my old counselor will arrive at me telling her that she will cancel appointments by text, email, or phone call in the future. I will not tolerate not hearing from her when I expect a meeting or a phone call.
I simply don’t have time for meaningless waiting for nothing.
Wednesday, a friend comes for a day of working with pouring acrylic paint on canvasses, preferably outside in the garden, if the weather gods will grant us fair Spring weather. And for us to keep on working us close to a special bond of friendship, making the time count for something is essential.
Thursday is payment day, shopping groceries day, and trying to overcome the usual trouble with new ways to do online banking. But, oh dear, we need to go to the county office and renew our identification documentation. NEM ID is the online login system used in Denmark for all government websites and banks.
It is plain and downright junk, an unsafe system required by the government and the banks, but we will get that done as well as everything else.
Friday, and throughout the week, I will clear and clean all my creative dens, including my witch’s den. They all need a good old-fashioned Spring cleaning. And what would be better or more appropriate, then, but creating a beautiful and mesmerizing witchcraft ritual Saturday?
Sunday is blog post writing day, and after such an intense week, a good, long afternoon sleep.
Carpe Diem – Seize the day, to me, it indicates to grasp every second of my life and transform it into something worthwhile, something beautiful to remember forever, and something for others than myself only to enjoy.
I get up early in the morning now. At 05.30 a.m Monday to Friday. Then, I walk for at least half an hour with a special friend. And so we share the morning coffee and converse about life’s ways of changing one’s perspective on important matters.
After my second morning coffee with my husband, it is time to do the chores that have to be taken care of, no matter my mood.
The reward is always writing, witchcraft, or creative pursuits.
But, first, there is often an intermezzo of the positive kind with our dear friends, who are older and younger than my husband and I.
While in my current state of mood, mania, I need to take extra good care of myself, as I don’t notice how tired I am (which is entirely the opposite when depressed). Therefore, I try to lay down and relax for an hour or two.
Suppose that is not possible due to my inner drive. In that case, I concentrate and focus on, e.g., working with 5D Diamond pictures or other mentally relaxing activities like meditation, Tarot card readings, and writing.
Around 09.00 p.m., I’m winding down the day. As I’m doing right now, with yet another life-affirming week passed.
Carpe Diem – Seize the day, when everything comes full circle; that’s how we live our lives here at this beautiful, positive, and different spot of paradise on Mother Earth.
We want to make the most of everything that life throws at us, whether that is all about the everyday or the incredible moments when life falls into place.
Of course, there are bad days, too. But I have stopped counting them. What counts, however, is to love life no matter the challenges.
And I love life too much to fall into despair about the current world situation. I’m watchful and alert, though. I follow the news that we all have to follow. But only in appropriate sessions.
Now, it is time to let go of this week and prepare for bedtime soon. After all, tomorrow morning will come early.
May your week be blessed with happy hours and sunshine, dear readers and followers. May all wars end and all weapons forever be destroyed. And may happiness, inner peace, good health, and kindness be granted to my loved ones and me.
As we all will it together, so mote it be.
Merry meet and merry part and merry meet again.
