I checked laid back. I know the holidays and honor them in my heart. I'm trying to celebrate more actively, but I don't get support from DH, which makes it difficult.

I plan to keep trying though.

If someone pays attention to what artwork we have they'd notice a definate Celtic and Nature-based bias though, so maybe DH isn't as unsupportive as all that, since he's the one buying.

I voted balanced, but when I think about it I am pretty laid back. I do like to plan ahead, and really try to put a lot of forethought into things, but it's hard sometimes There is never enough time in a day!
I'm always trying to learn more becasue I would like to be more structered, and have more "rules," if you will. I'm getting there, though.

i think i'll probably be able to devote more time since i have simplified my life to the point that i can now do the things that i want and need to do as opposed to useless crap. i'm really looking forward to it, i think the kiddos are too. 11 yo dd is really becoming interested in her own spirituality so i feel the need to be there for a good example and to answer her questions and such.

I study a LOT about all different types of religion, and that knowledge sits with me all the time. I draw from it whenever my heart tells me I need "something." My spirituality is VERY personal for me; I rarely share my rituals or celebrations or anything with anyone else, so I don't need a lot of planning.

But my spirituality is always with me and always recognized.

Hope that made sense. I'm out of my head with painkillers right now.
