I want to be a real estate agent next I think. Today we looked at another couple of properties and they were both really divine. I am glad I don’t have to decide. It is great to go along for the ride, daydreaming and imagining potentials and lifestyles and living opportunities without having to make the decision at the end.
That’s why I think I would like to be a Real Estate agent. I could show people through homes and imagine with them and picture this and that and then hop in my car and drive back to my amazing home. I think it would be fun. But for now being a teacher is better. It’s tough to beat actually when you like learning and teenagers and holidays.
I have found so many education blogs today and blogs written by other teachers. It is really amazing. When I have consumed them for a few weeks and selected my seriously consistently favourite ones I will add the links.
Around 10 years ago, when I was on a mission to revolutionise homes and learning feng shui and lots of other things about home, I ‘apprenticed’ myself to an aromatherapist. I wanted to learn about aromatherapy to apply it to creating spaces in homes and the essential oils would add another dynamic tool to my space creating kit. I spent one day a week with Ronece, who I have now lost contact with unfortunately. She taught me heaps about essential oils and health. I loved my oils and I would make a different blend each morning and after I showered I would massage the blend into myself. I put a couple of drops of lavender or chamomile into the kids bath to settle them in the evenings and I turned to my oils first if there were any illnesses or crisis’s in my circle.
My life has changed dramatically since those times. Different partner, town, job, friends, home, lifestyle and time has passed. I have kept my oils and all the associated tools that go with them and on occasion I will light a burner after cleaning the house to add a bit of whatever it is I’m striving to create in the space.
This morning I decided that I need to do the daily massage thing again and I did and I immediately felt relief from a headache and weariness that has dogged me all week. It was so simple and easy to do and yet I haven’t done it for probably 6 or so years. I have no idea why I stopped, but I am delighted I have started again.
I know it is old news, but today I have felt excited about Kate Bush’s new album coming out. It makes me feel hopeful and I listened to ‘King of the Mountain’ online this afternoon and totally enjoyed that familiar style that is unique to her and often imitated.
I enjoyed my day today. I just appreciated all the little details of my life. Even being back at work was pleasant because there are so many great people I work with that make me smile. My workmates, my students and friends there are a major part of my life and I feel blessed by them all. I enjoy learning and am lucky to be in a job that I love.
