Hubby is sick and so no body got good sleep last night. I am entirely to sleepy to try to articulate something profound and so I will just stick to daily life and my mini ritual of the day to prepare for Mabon. I will save my post on the Oak/Holly King for later.
Todays focus is mental and communication. When I get sleepy my communication skills kind of go out the window. case in point this is the second time I have written this post. apparently the first time I was not really signed in even though it looked like I was. I don’t know like I said I get shall we say duller when tired. Making today the perfect day to actually pay close attention to my communication skills.
Communication is really and art form and I think how you communicate is directly related to your happiness. Are you able to ask for what you want or articulate your needs in a way that the other party can hear you and wants to help you? Do you speak with care to those you care about? Words are manifestations of thoughts, both which carry power. Try to take a step back and look at how you are communicating. If you are able to be heard you are more likely to feel more in balance with your world.
A few examples: I tend to be an emotional person. When I am excited about something I want others to be excited too. Like a new Idea be happy with me first and then bring me down with your logic. So when I am over the moon about something I tell my hubby “I am going to tell you something and I am really excited/ happy/ sad about it and I need you to be too when I tell you” He knows what his first response has to be 🙂 another good phrase we have is when the other is launching in to I have a big problem and no one gets me type talk the other says “do you want me to fix it or do you just need to vent.?” viola! we can sit back and go “oh honey that is just awful” I am sure that all couples have these phrases to help their communication along and I thought I would share ours. Bright Blessings and Sweet Dreams.
