start the journey

Being fire signs, Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius need something to fuel them and their drive. They’re dependent on it, just as actual fire is.

Aries’ fuel is simple, yet powerful. They’re fueled by the future, by everything that lies ahead of them, and ultimately by themselves. Aries’ actions are necessary to start the journey into the zodiac, they’re “brand new” which makes it their duty to start the race. The cycle begins with them, making them only have themselves and the future. While this may seem as if that would make them never run out of fuel, that’s not true. They and the future are inseparably connected, and if they should stop trusting and believing in one of those, the other would be dragged down as well. Being the starter, the igniting spark, they have no other choice than to put trust in their moves going further. If they wouldn’t, their fire would soon burn out.

Leo’s fuel is to no surprise validation. Acknowledgement. This may seem simple, but it’s not - Leos need to be seen and shown a reaction. They’re a fire sign, yet fixed, they’re ruled by the sun which represents the glowing and confident individual, but they’re in the shadow of their sister sign Aquarius, and with that in both Uranus’ and Saturn’s as well. Every form of acknowledgement they take in like a sponge. Leos are known to be drama queens, and that may be true, but they need to be. It gets them the validation they need. It is in no way a positive one, but that doesn’t matter - they won’t be ignored, they have to be reacted to, and that’s what they need. They’re bound by their shadows and their fixed nature to not be able to run all alone, so their flame depends on the acknowledgement of those around them.

Sagittarius’ fuel is their search and, above all, possibilities. They complete the fire cycle, being mutable and having the planet of expansion floating above them - they start the last round through all the elements of the zodiac. Sagittarians don’t have an end-goal. Their destination is their journey and their arrow always points to what they, ultimately, can’t reach. Nothing is ever finished for them, there’s always something more, something not yet found. That’s what makes subjects like religion and philosophy “theirs”, they can’t find definite answers, there’s always another possibility, another unexplored idea. Sagittarius’ fire burn out when they settle - not physically, but when their mind stops wandering, because that’s their purpose. They started the last big journey of the zodiac, the way into the higher realms. They can’t settle for that would then put an end to their flame.

So today I was suppose to have a date(my first date in years) but the guy cancelled on me (second time it’s happened with the same guy). Needless to say, I was hurt. I ended up staying at work longer than I planned since I had nothing better to do.
BUT THEN
A friend/co-worker stopped by my office for coffee (because I’m the only one that has a full functioning coffee bar) so as I’m making her a macchiato, she starts sharing her vocation journey with me and about her experience at her 8 day Ignatian Retreat that she just got back from. IT WAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL STORY and she told me things that my heart really needed to hear. Their was so much joy in her eyes as she shared the journey the Lord placed her in and how she knows where she is being called (MARRIAGE). And I was able to chat with her about my own heart ache with discernment cause let’s face it…discerning your vocation can be frustrating! But she was able to share a lot of insight and wisdom that I will forever be grateful for.

Moral of the story: God desires us to be filled with J O Y. He works for our good. We are His children and what father doesn’t want his children to be happy?? I felt sad when my date was cancelled but I don’t believe that was God “trying to teach me a lesson”. No. I believe God turned the situation around and brought this friend into my office that led to some much needed peace and clarity in my heart. We have a GOOD FATHER that desires us to be filled with J O Y. Thank you thank you thank you God for being their in the midst of my heart ache.

COME ONE, COME ALL!

We are so close to 6k followers. It’s fucking amazing. Never did I expect it to reach this point, but it has. I have something special planned out for the week we hit that. You’ll have to wait for that, though. Sorry ;)

However. There’s one thing that Mel always wants more of. What started it all. What started her journey into being one of the main admins on this blog. What pulled her to the smutty side (at least of writing).

And with that, I would like to announce that

Candyland

Will be getting 5 new chapters! I had marked it as complete when I hadn’t finished the board. I have all new ideas, and I can’t wait to get them out to you guys.

That being said, the Trickster is back<3

We’ve been trying real hard to hide this, but it’s getting a bit too obvious by now. Yes, we’re expecting! A special shoutout to @bourbon-creamss, our little kiddos godmother. We’re so glad you accepted. I can’t wait to start this new journey with the love of my life, @slayimani. I love you more than words can describe. And I know you’ll be an amazing mother to our child.

I never really talk or share information about my weight I just do my thing and keep it to myself.

I finally found the confidence to do it and thought what better place to start your journey than from the beginning and track your progress.
I have recently gained about 10 kgs and this has put a massive strain on my fitness journey.

Due to exam stress and other factors I have not been as careful with my weight loss.I made the big mistake of thinking that I can just eat as much as I want whenever I want as long as I eat healthy.

This was obviously a big mistake as I was taking in more calories than I was burning or needed.I decided to finally post a begin my journey again,hopefully having more people join me and share with each other our progress.

I currently weight 68kgs (150 lbs) on a good day and my final goal is to reach around 54kgs (120 lbs) hopefully by this time next year if not faster.

My main goal is to lose as much body fat as I can while building muscle and getting leaner.Hope others can join me and make this journey a better experience :)

We interrupt this Program to bring you some Lunara~~
  
I forgot it’s May, which means, redraw of the Lunara !! Every 6mo - 1yr I try to redraw her, to check my progression since I’ve started my Journey, and well, here we are!! 

Start | Year One | Year Two | Year Three | Year Four

grrrls-like-us  asked:

hello! i'm starting my journey into witchcraft and have very strong celtic roots so i'm trying to learn more about irish/celtic magic. do you have any book recommendations that i should start off with?

Hi! i actually just answered something like this last night but books are one of my favorite things so im always willing to recommend books! the first one i read was The Book of Celtic Magic: Transformative Teachings from the Cauldron of Awen and im almost done with Celtic Magic

personally i dont think theres a certain place you have to start as long as you start eventually youll learn the things that you need to, so i would just say to read a lot and practice a lot because thats the only way youre going to get experience lol

these are a few of the books i plan to read next
By Oak, Ash, & Thorn: Modern Celtic Shamanism
Celtic Myth & Magick: Harness the Power of the Gods and Goddesses
Celtic Lore & Spellcraft of the Dark Goddess: Invoking the Morrigan
Magic of the Celtic Otherworld: Irish History, Lore & Rituals
Elemental Power: Celtic Faerie Craft & Druidic Magic
The Silver Wheel: Women’s Myths and Mysteries in the Celtic Tradition
Tending Brigid’s Flame: Awaken to the Celtic Goddess of Hearth, Temple, and Forge
Flower Face: A Devotional Anthology in Honor of Blodeuwedd

i honestly have a way longer list of books i plan to read to further my craft so if youre interested let me know and i can give more suggestions! 

and also here is a website full of PDFs of books for public domain on myths, folklore, religion and legends 

anonymous asked:

I need help in reducing belly fat, please can you give some tips on what to eat and to avoid? You look so amazing and your story is sweet, mashallah.

I was so focused on calories on packaging, what I should’ve looked at was sugar and carbs. That’s where you’ll kick start your journey. Leave your debit/credit card at home and meal plan every Saturday for the following week. Drink water or green tea 30 min before your meal. Do not eat a full meal after 8, only exception is a healthy snack. Hit the gym 3 times a week and work on a body part (i.e- arm day, back, leg day).. I followed these steps and it got me where I am today. I’m not saying it will work for you but it’s the same tips your hear on health blogs and etc. 😊

This is Kylie Jean ❤️
Kylie was born with a pretty common heart defect. We were assured that most children grow out of it by the time they are 2 and those ones that don’t, usually always grow out of it by the time they are 4.
Unfortunately, the valves pumping blood to Kylie’s heart have not grown in they ways we have hoped and now almost 5 and a half, we start our journey to find the best solution for Kylie and will see just what her diagnosis is for the future.

We are able to double insure Kylie due to the protections pre-existing conditions have under the ACA. Without insurance, a heart surgery will bankrupt not only my husband and I but her father and step-mother as well. There is no reason why 4 hard working people should be forced to loose their homes in order to save their child. We would gladly give our home to save her life, but it’s pretty awful when you have to choose to be homeless to save your child in this country.
