I joined Dreamwidth yesterday. I discovered this when I was on Livejournal. I decided to come over and look it over. I came… I liked… I joined! I imported my journal from LJ. It has been almost a year and ½ since my last entry. I used to journal all the time and I found that it helped keep centered and grounded. I’ve been feeling the need to start journaling again, not only to keep the balanced, but to keep me accountable.
So, as today is the first day of a brand-new year, I guess this is as a good day to start as any! *Grins* I spent the last several days working on my dreams and goals. There are things I really need to work on and this is the year it is going to happen! I will be back later to set them down in writing, but I need to get them straight and coherent in my mind.
But for now, to build on my introduction on my profile, I’m happily divorced and a survivor of ovarian cancer which has changed me in ways I would never have dreamed of. I was born in California and I have lived in Las Vegas for soon to be 30 years (The third and longest time I have lived here) Being a double water sign, how I have lasted this long in the high desert is beyond my ken. I’m earthy, but very definitely a Pisces…and interesting juxtaposition.
I am a womanchild who is on this most wondrous journey. It has been an adventure the likes of which I would never have dreamed of 21 years ago. To be honest, I can, at times, be selfish, petty, lazy and a procrastinator. I am more often loving, kind, often fragile, loyal and funny. Also childlike, fun~loving, trusting and free with my affection. I am a dreamer, a believer in magic and the healing power of love, touch, and nature. I am a water baby and a tree hugger and an explorer. I love the sound of leaves rustling in the wind and waves breaking on the shore. I am a star gazer and love to lay on my back in the mountains and be dazzled by the star strewn sky.
I am a tactile person...I love the feel of rough bark on trees when I hug them and the smooth velvety softness of grass when I lie on the earth to ground myself...I love the feel of cool dirt and mud between my toes and the feel of rain on my skin. I love the caress of a cool breeze through my hair and the warmth of the new spring sun as it envelopes me. I love to play in the rain, jump in puddles and raise my arms to the sky as I invite the rain to bless and invigorate me. I crave the touch of loved ones as we hug and cuddle and play.
I am a builder of forts with blankets and card tables. I move to my own rhythm and the music in my head, my heart and my soul. I am a Rennie and a Trekkie...I am, when the muse visits me, a writer, sometimes a poet, and always a lover of life. I am a goddess, a little girl, a wench.
I am just me. I like who I am (most of the time) and who I am becoming. I cherish the joy of the journey. I have no idea where the journey will end, it is not that important to me. It is the journey itself that makes my heart sing.
So, Happy New Year! May this be the start of a productive, abundant, exciting, adventure filled, love filled, joyful year! Make it so!
