Right Here, Right Now

The ramblings of a girl currently too concerned with the destination rather than the journey.

I'm a bicentennial baby living in the beautiful foothills of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. I live with my cat, a sweet orange tabby named Marigold, she's got her own page here. Marigold and I are both Scorpios so sometimes it's a little crazy at our house. Check out your own horoscope by clicking the drawing at the right.

I am ever on the search for good company and good conversation. I moved around a lot as a kid, lived on both coasts and I've met a lot of people! Although I miss not ever feeling like I could call one place home, I think that the experiences of regenerating who I was after every move only built my character.

I am researching my family history and have help from other family members to figure out where we all originated. That's a lot of fun. You meet a lot of people online by asking, "Am I related to you? Let's see..." I'm hoping to eventually add a page dedicated to genealogy on this site.

Some days we just get stuck, and bogged down. Some days all you can do is smile and wait for someone to kindly remove your butt from the hole you find it wedged into.

I read my horoscope religiously. Not that I feel I need to follow what it says, and some days I forget and have to read it a day late, just to see if it was accurate.

Lately my horoscope has a lot to do with money. I say, BRING IT ON! Alas, I'm not seeing any influx of wealth, so I'm still keeping a look out for that.

I have been trying to redevelop myself, lately, trying to change myself in minute ways so that I can be happy with the final result. It's hard to change who you are. There's a great song by Sister Hazel named "Change Your Mind" and the lyric I love states "If you're tired of fighting battles, with yourself, If you want to be somebody else, change your mind." They make it sound so simple!

We get ourselves into these ruts because we're comfortable with where we are, even if we're not. Make sense? Like a habit we're trying to break, we know it may not be good for us but it's easier to stick with the habit than make the change for the better. It's about having that comfort zone. Stepping outside of that is so scary sometimes, it's almost not worth it.

Ah, but I'm on this quest to live my truth, and sometimes that throws me WAY outside of my comfort zone. Sometimes I have to say things, setting limits and boundaries, clearing misconceptions, things that I cannot believe are coming out of my mouth, just to be true and honest with myself.

The Dalai Lama once said that Enlightenment didn't come easy, and it's not a road lined with friends cheering you on, and you may even find it boring once you're there.

So, at least I was warned.

This neat little picture came from the online edition of the Farmer's Almanac. It shows which parts of the body are ruled by which signs of the zodiac. You can click on the picture to jump to a fun astrology site I stumbled upon. You can learn more than you thought possible about astrology, karma, Carl Jung, the planets and more.

Do you dream?  Do you remember your dreams?  On the rare occasion that I remember my dreams, I always wonder what in the heck they mean.  I found this really cool website that will give a general explanation of what your dreams mean.  Of course, every dream is personal to the dreamer, so take it all "with a grain of salt."
