So, the work I’ve been doing all year through Fabeku’s Coherence Labs have helped me more than I can say. Learning where I’m out of alignment in my life has been eye-opening AND challenging at the same time.
Looking at my online stuff, I see I’ve got this blog, a closed-for-all-intents-and-purposes site in Practically Intuitive, a WTF do I do with this site in Be Who You Are and of course, all things Purple over at Purple Saturation. In addition, I’ve got FB pages for PI, BWYA, PS and me as a page + my personal FB page.
I don’t want all of that any longer so I made a decision. I’ve purchased the domain lisamw.com and will be doing everything there (except for Purple Saturation but will have links and descriptions on it).
And that means Snarkypants is coming to a close. That’s been in the offing for a while now but I have 14 years of my life here and didn’t want to just ditch it all. It will still be up for a while so I can download the archives (YEY for Beacon!) and Lauren’s stuff which I’m hoping to finally make into a book for her parents. When that’s complete, I will close it down.
Too much of me has been compartmentalized for reasons I won’t go into here. It’s time to pull it into one place – business, blogging, whatever-may-come. This is a big deal to me because it represents a coming together of many pieces that were spread out all over the place and is a result of a lot of personal work over the years and particularly so this year.
So, just a heads up. I’ll let you know when the other site is up and running. My goal is to get that done and start 2017 fresh from one place.
On another note: Some shitty news about the election and the sad part is I knew it was coming. I could feel it in my bones and when my friends were all posting how excited they were that we’d finally have a woman president, I knew they’d be disappointed. So, I was not at all surprised to see the outcome. Disheartened, oh yes. Surprised? No.
Here’s a thing, though. Spiritual Teachers come in every possible disguise.
Even ones such as Trump.
He is the very epitome of everything that can no longer be tolerated in our country. And he represents it in a way that is hard to ignore. I consider him a Spiritual Teacher for all time. (I’m working on an essay about that, btw.) It is because of him that many people who were half asleep are now awake and aware.
Secretary Clinton was, by far, the most experienced candidate. No question there. And yet, had she won, we would have all gone back to napping because business as usual, yeah? How close did we get to Bernie Sanders being the nominee? That spoke to the need for real, sustained change that benefited the whole. And yet, we couldn’t quite get there.
So, Mr. Trump moved to the fore and it will be by his hand (and sadly, Pence’s) that we lurch forward, painfully so. I am involved in a few groups now who are devoted to daily action rather than blathering on FB (of which I am guilty) and posting memes (ditto). It’s just a matter of time that things shift. I continue to pray for our country to do this as peacefully as possible and know and trust (in my own unwavering way) that this will all benefit us before too long.
Love and more love to you all. (And I’ll be posting here until I don’t so don’t go anywhere yet, all three of youse!)
