It is as true in the paranormal as anywhere else: love = progress.
By that, I mean that if you enjoy doing something, it’s far more likely to get done.
This isn’t to say that there won’t be boring parts, or uncomfortable parts, or parts you wish you didn’t have to do or that you could wave a magic wand over them and have the fairies do them by the morning, but if the overall gestalt is of something enjoyable, chances, are, it will happen.
Progress will be made.
Practicing will happen.
Things will get better and more accomplished.
‘Paranormal Avians’ is undergoing a revamp during the course of ‘Prosperity’s Kitchen’.
It’s being a wild ride and it’s only just the end of the second week.
Things are getting done.
Progress is happening.
I’ve felt more in contact with my Galleries than I have in a long time.
And things are very, very good.
How Can You Apply This to Your Life???
When you can’t, find another way to inject love into the process.
- Maybe you can change the environment – add music, add silence, add incense.
- Maybe you change the people – going it solo, going it in a group, going it in a different group.
- Maybe you turn it into a game or give yourself a reward.
But in any case, bring Love into the picture.
I think you’ll find the rewards very worth the effort.
Until next time…
Her goals are lofty: to create ripples that will change this World for the better by sharing stories that let people know that the paranormal is normal, the Other is not automatically to be feared, and our destinies are in our own hands.
Her Dreams are bigger still: to share those stories via episodic internet television, taking advantage of the changes in the World to keep control and direction of her tales, to share the modern version of a Bardic Circle.
You can find the text versions of her stories under the pseud BardicRaven at Archive of Our Own and the audio versions of them (and these posts) on the JourneyBirds' YouTube channel. She is also known to make the occasional Fannish comment on Tumblr.
If you'd like to help bring their stories to life, check out their Patreon page and become a Patron.
