Leaving on a jet plane...

So much to write about, but I guess that's what happens when you don't update for a week. Of course I'm going to blame it ALL on huinatnaaq!! eumelosdrizzle and I just dropped him off at the airport and he's on his way back to the great white north. I know it sounds crazy but I miss him a bit already. I really enjoy his company and it was great having him around to shoot the shit with. It was a fun week... a bit helter skelter, but good. I'm so tired today though. We got in from dinner/movie/hanging out at about 2:30-3:00am and had to be up at 7:00am to get to the airport. Even after having a nap (3 hour long nap, I might add), I'm still feeling a bit tired, but I'll survive.

My offer to lead an ecclectic ritual for UTPS has been accepted. I'm actually kind of excited about because I really wasn't sure that they'd say yes. So now I actually have to write one up, which shouldn't be too hard for me, even though I am used to do my rituals kind off the cuff. It will be my first public ritual, so it should be interesting to see how it turns out. Sounds like I'll have lots of help if I need it too. :)

So much to talk about and yet I can't figure out what to write. I'll have to post more later.

Finally

Well, I actually did it! I got up off my ass and did a quick little full moon ritual! I'm actually quite pleased with myself. It wasn't anything fancy, but I'm glad that I finally DID something instead of just talking about how I SHOULD do something and then not doing anything. It wasn't as profound as some other stuff I've participated in, but what matters is simply that I DID it. It's actually one of my goals to dedicate at least 15 minutes a day to my spiritual growth. It can be a small ritual, meditation, creative writing, art...anything as long as it's related to my spiritual growth. It's a tough goal for a procrastinator like me to acheive, but it's a good one for me. I think that I can gain a lot from it. I've been getting some pretty good results out of the meditations I've been doing recently, despite the fact that many of them tend to end up being VERY intense.

Another thing I need to start doing is excercising more... whether it's dancing, walking, biking, rollerblading, sit ups... it doesn't matter as long as I do it. I know that my body wants it because I can feel it. I've used my inflatable punching bag a few times and that works well, so I'll have to try and do things like that a bit more often.

I used my ritual today partially to ask for the strength/ambition/drive to want to do these things and actually do them. I can use all the help I can get!
