This week, I had a few contenders for the letter “B”, but nothing which really stood out as something to write an in-depth post about, so instead of one long-ish post about a single term beginning with B, I decided to combine several mini posts into one post.
This week is my last full week at my current job. It ended rather unexpectedly, but, in truth, I am relieved. While I was, for years, very grateful for the opportunity and the steady pay, lately, it has become a burden (Another B word I could have written about!). It felt like, instead of helping me do things I was supposed to be doing, it was getting in the way of things I was supposed to be doing. I suppose that the Universe agreed, and now I will no longer have as an excuse.
Not having excuses is a little scary, but also exciting. The past month has been looking into all the things and the past week or two, there has been a big push to wrap up old things and prepare to begin anew.
I know that I am getting off track in my spiritual devotions when I fall off in my blogging. When I am on a good streak, I blog every day or close to it. I have not been on a good streak in a while, admittedly.
I often tell people who are new to dealing with spiritual things to blog everything: sights, sounds, scents, dreams, research, idle thoughts, potential visitors, flashbacks, phantom sensations. Just blog everything as it happens. Do not try to filter it based on how trivial it may seem or how silly you think it sounds. Also, blog often. Do not put it off. You will kick yourself later when you go to look for your notes on something and find that you never wrote it down anywhere. (Ask me how I know.)
I need to take my own advice. This month, I am up to blogging an average of 4.5 posts a week, which is a tremendous improvement over the um… 3 a week average in December. It is still a far cry from the daily blogging that I prefer to be doing.
This is a term I use rather frequently, so it may come up here. A brick, as Bri and I use the term, is something that turns up, usually when you are not looking for it, to verify something that was previously considered UPG. When it shows up, you are just as stunned (and sometimes just as aggravated) as if you had been smacked in the face with a brick. Hence, bricks. Not the most elegant derivation of a term ever, but there you go. Now, if it shows up in either of our posts, you know what it means.
Other B words I considered, but could not squeeze into this post before my self-determined deadline: Bees, Bulls, Birch, Britomartis, Being.
This post brought to you by the letter B.
