I forgot how much it takes when one works and goes to school. This isn’t your normal 9 to 5 job or night classes.
My day job is being a medium in Cassadaga Spiritualist Camp, and yes, I am a writer. I am also a student in the healing program. Interestingly enough I chaired the Wednesday Night Message Service the other night and got a tidbit from the medium about taking three weeks off to finish writing my book. Wouldn’t that be grand? I was told it would occur in a small house while in north Florida. I like it.
And so here I am living somewhere between realms of existence. I do readings during the day and three nights a week I’m up, until when? Who knows? Spirit maybe. LOL
I teach a class on Tuesday nights until 9 p.m. This last week I finally fell asleep around 12:30 a.m. It’s the energy. Thursday night I go to a healing class until 8:30 p.m. Still took me a while to fall asleep. The next day I was at the gym by 5:30 a.m., so I could be back to do a couple of readings starting at 9 a.m. I did get a 30 minute nap at the doctor’s office while I waited. And Friday’s healing class went until 9:30 p.m. This schedule will go on for the next eight weeks. What is time?
The above does not include services I volunteer at to include healing and chairing each month and other volunteer opportunities. The list goes on. Why do I do this? To make a difference. It warms my heart to help others. And in the process, I am evolving. When going through these types of programs, one heals and grows.
Backstory: I was a late bloomer. Didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up, although I did think I would write a best-selling book someday. At 35, I earned my bachelor’s degree with an emphasis on Journalism from UCF. I worked a part-time job as a server, went to school full-time, made the dean’s list three out of five semesters, kept the kids (youngest was 7 at graduation) and the house. I remember the good old days when I worked algebra problems until after midnight. I said I would never go back to school again. Here I am back at it. Did I ever stop? Life is a school every single day.
Perhaps, I will be busy enough to save money, so that I am able to take those three weeks off to finish that book. Of course, there are more after that. It’s a never ending story, life is.
Blessings of Peace and Love!
