This week brought fantastic and incredible moments of joy in life and some annoying trouble with a bad neighbor as well.
My mood, however, is not as good as it could have been had it not been for my annoying neighbor, who deliberately cut down some of our plants in the garden from their side of the fence. So now, we will change the wall so that such vandalism won´t happen again.
And the police told us to call again if anything more should happen.
But I choose deliberately to focus solely on the many positive experiences I have had throughout the week, culminating yesterday with a visit to the place where a close friend of mine paid her late mother the final respect by releasing her ashes into the sea a couple of years ago.
Thursday was a memorable and beautiful day with a party for the people we help at the local social houses. Seeing physically and mentally handicapped people cut loose and sing and dance throughout the evening deeply touched my heart, mind, and soul.
Today, I´m more mentally tired than usual. Still, I decided to write this blog post nonetheless, as writing always helps me get back on my feet whenever life turns 180 degrees around itself and challenges my positive outlook on things.
Listening to beautiful music, at times a little louder than usual, as I need to release deepfelt anger and a lot of frustration.
That I´ll do quietly, without speaking or thinking anything but positive vibes.
Only positive vibes shall remain as this week comes full circle.
I have written to my counselor and asked for an extra phone call to discuss how to maintain my mental health when involved in an involuntary conflict. That way, it is easier for me to regain my strength and keep a good spirit.
My plans for next week include two visits to social houses and as much free time as possible. I need to relax and search for positive moments to grab a firm hold on my ongoing depressive state. It is here, but it won´t be as bad as usual because I have decided to fight back every inch of the way.
This week´s ladies´ luncheon was fun and thought-provoking at the same time. We are now so close with our dear friends that we share practically everything, including both the hearty laughter and the difficult moments in our lives.
And it was exciting and heartwarming to meet sweet new people connected to the social houses where I now work twice a week.
Right now, I´m waiting for my husband to serve us a delicious Sunday meal, for this week to end more peacefully than it began, and for my low mood to rise again.
It helps so much writing for you, dear readers and followers. And, believe me, my husband´s tenderloin pot with rice is good stuff. Being full and content with my life is a great privilege. I enjoy sharing it with you, as there already is too much bad news in today´s world.
This place has become an extended diary where I still prefer to write about my life as a writing witch rather than creating big plans for this blog that don´t agree with my time to manifest them in reality.
We are so lucky to be included in a rare and life-affirming social circle where we make a virtue of helping and taking good care of each other, no matter the challenge to conquer.
As of today, one of our dear friends called to let us know that she cares a lot about us, and it both warms our hearts and helps us focus solely on the positive aspects of life.
Only positive vibes shall remain, and from here on, I´m more than prepared to pick up where I left off before this weekend.
Tomorrow morning, I will get up at 05.10 o´clock to be ready for my early morning walk with my friend and my fitness class between seven and eight a.m.
The same thing will happen on Wednesday and Friday. I have lost about six pounds, and I´m ready to step it up a notch.
Tomorrow, I will also enjoy a meaningful conversation with my counselor.
Tuesday and Wedneday; well, it is time for my social work, which I love more than I have the words to describe after only a few months.
Thursday, it is a day off, filled with creativity and fun. Friday will be a day of hard work, as we plan to put up our new fence there. And Saturday and Sunday, again a time of relaxation and working with what I love most to do when at home.
Writing and witchcraft.
Oh yes, I´m a gray witch, knowing when to turn to witchcraft and when not. Today is not a good day for me to create magick, but I still defend myself and my loved ones.
Besides, I´m still standing and will remain standing long after my enemies have given themselves away and shown their true faces.
The central part of the week has been a major success for me, as it is the first time in an extended time that I have met many new people and visited unknown places.
I know from the bottom of my heart, the unseen depths of my soul, and every fiber in my body that this difficult passage in my life will pass.
And now, it is time to listen to great music again.
Only positive vibes shall remain; this spell is done.
May your week be joyful, full of life-changing moments of joy, love, and strong friendship. May the world come to its senses and begin to change for the better for us all. And may my depression only stay a little while so that my best mood can return and give me renewed stamina.
As I will it, so mote it be.
So it is.
Merry meet and merry part and merry meet again.
