As we approach Halloween 2020, the world certainly seems terrifying, though perhaps not quite in the ways we usually associate with the holiday.
Fortunately, you can always curl up on the couch with a big bag of candy and a horror movie and call it a night.
A rare blue moon will light up the sky on Oct. 31, 2020, making everyone’s Halloween just a little bit spookier!!! “My Mom used to tell me that a full moon was when mysterious things happen and wishes come true.“
This year has been immensely stressful for many, and that surrounding yourself with small things that bring you joy, like Pumpkins … Christmas tree and decorations, could really boost your mental health.
With the year we’ve had, everyone could do with a bit of happiness. It’s (finally) something positive and joyful to look forward to. Christmas always provides a reason for celebration and a relaxing welcomed break, so it’s understandable that people are looking forward to and plan for it earlier than ever this year.
But what about putting your tree up super early – say November? “Decorating your home early can create that neurological shift, a spike in the feel-good hormone dopamine which can produce happiness. If there was ever a year to make an exception to decorate early, this could be it. It’s a crazy year. If putting up your Christmas tree early will bring you a little extra joy, why not,” she adds.: “Christmas is about family, love, and togetherness. The tree is the physical symbol of these values and in a year of separation, having this reminder in our homes is worth a whole lot more.”
I hope you find yourself comforted during these darkening days with the love that shines from within you.💕
I picked up a bunch of books on writing and journaling! They started trickling in slowly, and I was beyond excited to receive this book !!
While I’ve been reading several of them at once, but this first one I finished is called “Writing Down Your Soul” by Janet Conner.
The author gently guides the reader through the steps needed to where they can open up to the Voice within, to really share on the written page from their heart and soul. Janet shares her incredible life story as she guides the reader to seek their own inner wisdom. With a comprehensive list of question to ask the voice, she aids the reader to find their own list of questions, and thereby answers, to their deepest thoughts and inner soul..
When you’re caught up in something you really love, your mind goes quiet and your soul takes over. It’s a beautiful, freeing feeling and something we should all strive to experience more often.
This has been a challenging year!! As we celebrate the Thanksgiving weekend, it can be hard to feel thankful when life hands us challenge after challenge, especially when we feel we can’t handle any more..
As I head into Thanksgiving 2020. I arrive with gratitude for all that I have learned whether I wanted to learn these lessons or not. I am forever changed by the events of 2020- but it is my choice to respond to those losses with either anger or understanding. It is important to recognize that we have no control what will happen each day other than to have gratitude about our ability to control our own responses and behavior to each hard situation life hands us. If it has been hard for you to feel thankful in 2020, I hope that you can instead feel gratitude that you can read this today and that you have the opportunity to spend Thanksgiving with at least one person that you love and care about. If your house was full in the past and you felt overwhelmed by the preparation for such a big group, you should realize how lucky you are and how much gratitude should fill your heart. Be thankful that you can be grateful.
Even with all the chaos 2020 has presented us with, there is still so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. We’d even argue one of the greatest gifts this challenging year has given us was a new perspective on the things we’ve been taking for granted all this time! A new perspective on just how grateful I am for the simplest of things. And while many are still struggling this Thanksgiving, I hope you are able to take a moment and practice some gratitude for all the lessons 2020 has brought us.
Happy Thanksgiving! I know this year has been rough, but I see your strength and wish you all the best this Thanksgiving!!
I’ve thought about this questions for a while and how people’s opinions on this are. I don’t really see it as being selfish in a way, but more like a way to attract attention to oneself. That’s why I don’t tell other people when my birthday is unless they directly ask me, as I’m more of an introvert who doesn’t like the spotlight.
Some people will have no respect for my time. Whether it’s friends or clients, I / we escorts deal with some individuals who can’t seem to understand we all have a schedule . So what I do is put distance between these people very quickly 👍
Now for the fake people…the ones behind the phone apps, emails, “They think they’re smart by using the app to try to disguise who they are, but usually there’s some sort of a footprint left behind.” “I treat everyone with kindness and respect, even those who are rude to me – not because they are nice, but because I am.”
No longer do I feel that I have to be perfect. Life is not fair at times and I have come to accept that there may always be someone who is smarter, more successful or more talented than I. I know in my heart that I have tried to live my life . If people are not willing to accept me for who I am, then I do not need to be accepted by them. Knowing that I put a hundred percent effort in the Stephanie world, I am completely satisfied with the person I am.
I am a firm believer in KARMA….Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can’t get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don’t care who you are. What goes around comes around. That’s how it works. Sooner or later the universe will serve you the revenge that you deserve!!
I don’t take things for granted. I appreciate the people in my life – I never know how long I will have with them.
The beginning of school year is alot like Christmas. For the most part, the kids are excited and everything is shiny and new. And, as during the holidays, the economic pinch kicks in – and some families go without!
Now, it is my privilege to be in a position to give back – and I recently am buying knapsacks, school supplies and going to be dropping off to my local food bank.
“It is to be able to give them something new to go back to school with. Think of yourself when you were younger and you went back to school that first day how proud you were to have that new backpack and new lunch box. It really does make a difference for these kids.”
I want to give some children the chance to go to school with their heads held high!
There are a lot of big, unwieldy, anxiety-inducing problems facing the world right now, but sending a child to school with a new backpack and sharp pencils to start the year off right💕
Ihad known Mr. R for 8 years!!! I was shocked hearing that this client had died .. I went over our last session in my mind. With a sparkle in his eyes as he walked out with his usual kiss….his usual goodbye…“See you in a few weeks.!” This was to be my final lasting impression of him. . I wanted to go back in time and re-explore our time together.. I wanted the chance to say good-bye.
So I began my grieving process, a very different journey of grieving than I had ever experienced before. Mine is a very peculiar profession. While I establish a professional and real connection with my clients, I also create boundaries to avoid merging with their personal lives – but when it comes to health and the well being my heart and soul is there.
The sudden unanticipated death of a client is difficult.
The ethical and legal boundaries of my profession cut me off opportunities. – I was not allowed to connect with my deceased client’s family members.. So I say a prayer by myself and will cherish our memories 🙏
I’m very fond of all my clients. I have a great deal of affection for them. I’d even call it a type of love, though it’s not the kind of love that comes with rings and promises. The job I do requires naked intimacy – emotional and mental as well as physical – and my nature makes it impossible to have that intimacy without forming an emotional bond.
Sometimes they drive me mad, much as friends do. Some more than others.
Now go take on the world, go live life to the fullest.❤
