My brain: Well, it's about that time! Let's get to bed for some sleep.

My body: SLEEP? WHO NEEDS SLEEP? NOT ME!

Brain: STFU, body, sleep. *forces eyes closed*

Body: *SLAMS EYES OPEN* HEY BUDDY I SAID NO SLEEP. IT IS THE TIME TO BE AWAKE!

-1 hour later-

Body: AWAKE AWAKE AWAKE. BE AWAKE. GIVE UP NOW, FUCKER, YOU'RE GOING TO BE AWAKE.

Brain: Oh sweet zombie elvis.

Me: *cries*




...in other news, today was my grandma's birthday, my boss is leaving the company, and I still have a massive, massive crush on Elizabeth Bennett. I would like a Darcy and Bennett matched set to decorate my home, please.

Happy Christmas, Happy Yule, Happy Whatever-You-Celebrate.

And though I'm late, Happy Solstice! The dark days are over!


If I had a wish (because this is the time for wishes, when love and magic are strong) I would wish that everyone would be able to find their own version of speaking peace and seeking the light. Well. And I'd wish for a pony, but.

Speak peace and seek the light. It's been a mantra, for a while. I'm going to ramble about what it means, to me, for a bit. Because it's my journal and I can. This is a declaration of intention, and of my personal belief.

************

The mantra is in two parts, the first is for the outside world. Speak Peace. It sounds simple, but believe me, it's not. Speaking peace is not about placation or appeasement. It's about using your voice to support the Harmony, the Justice. Peace is achieved through balance and to achieve balance, sometimes one must fight. Never sit down, never be quiet when something is unbalanced. Call unfairness what it is, to it's face. Tell people who need love that you love them, and mean it. Accept love from others unconditionally. Speak Peace. Speak for Peace. Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.

The second is for the self. Seek the light. Remember to always look to better yourself. When there is a problem, look inward and honestly first. If you are the cause of the problem, look for a way to better communicate why you think the way you do. And when looking honestly, know when it is you that needs to change in order to Speak Peace. But by the same token, if you (honestly, truly, not-just-wanting-to-get-your-way) see that it is others that need to change, don't give up what you believe for them. Light is, like Peace, achieved through balance. Seek the light. Never stop learning, add each experience, good and bad, to your Self. Let the world shape you as you shape it. Seek the light.


This is what I try. This is where I am. I often fall short. I let myself get involved in discord. I let my laziness and petty hurts keep me in the dark. I stop trying when it becomes too hard. I know this, I acknowledge this and I seek the courage to overcome.

May I be safe. May I be healthy. May I walk with ease in this world.
I choose to be safe. I choose to be healthy. I choose to walk with ease in this world.

Om Shanti Om.

Namaste.

=D That was kind of fun.

In other news, I hate being sick. Or perhaps this is not news. Whatever.

Yesterday I went shopping and got three new rings for fairly cheap. My favorite is in the shape of a big, silver butterfly. It's a good thing I have huge hands or it wouldn't look good.

Out of curiosity, what size rings do you wear? Tell me if you know.

I wear a size 11 ring on my ring fingers. Huge, yes? But then I can also nearly palm a basketball.
