I have been lingering in a sort of limbo since I moved to Florida in October 2017. I am still unemployed, though I have been looking (not as intently as I could, but I am putting myself out there). I have only just recently found a Primary Care Physician for myself and the Wildflower Child, even though I found a veterinarian for my dog immediately. Still need a dentist, therapist, neurologist, and eye doctor.
There has been some dating. And after a lot of ugly nights involving texting and phone calls, I truly have made piece with my ex from New Jersey and we are getting along as legitimate friends, probably for the first time in our relationship. And this seems to have coincided with us independently starting to move forward in our own lives.
I finally found a goal worth working toward after joining my local Unitarian Universalist Church. I meet an incredible woman who is ordained by One Spirit Interfaith Seminary and I am hoping to be able to apply for their distance learning program next year. I am also on the Religious Education and Pastoral Care teams in my church. I just dove right in didn't I?
So, saying all that, you might think I'm some sort of stuffy "Church Lady" eh? Have you read my former posts? Because the answer to that is "absolutely not." I'm deeply agnostic, mostly Pagan, frustrated by most "Christians," and not really interested in any dogma. But I feel a tug in my heart I need to follow. And so I am. I am "officially" ordained by the Universal Life Church, but that's just a paper ordination. I feel the need to do this process fully and truly commit the time and resources it takes to be the best version of me I can be. I want to help people. And I believe that this is the way I will be able to achieve that goal.
In the mean time, I am trying to get my health under control (migraines have been kicking my ass regularly), and taking care of the human and canine lives for which I am responsible. And just in general attempting to be less hard on myself as I try to be a better person today than I was yesterday.
I'm Kirsten. Some things you could label me with; tattooed, geek, mama, animal lover, weirdo, nerd, writer, movie and TV addict, lazy, ambitious, insomniac, feminist, LGBTQ+.
