Gratitude, Not Attitude

Today’s meditation was twelve minutes long and took place in the bath tub, submerged to just my nose and mouth (well, and knees).  It was not a guided meditation, but rather a time spent in that suspension state that I can often find when in water.  It was very refreshing, but left me feeling a bit sleepy by the end.

Three of Cups - Tarot of the Unknown Today’s draw is the Three of Cups, which is a representation of collaboration, small gains, and even smaller groups in the area of one’s emotions, intuition, relationships, and creativity.

The appearance of the Three of Cups today is a reminder to put a check on my resentment concerning having my helper in my space.  I don’t know why I can’t seem to get completely comfortable with her being here in my home when she comes to do her job, but it’s always an irritant that she’s here.   Always.

That said… I need the assistance with my business that she provides, especially at this time of year.   Today’s card is a reminder to look on the bright side of the relationship and collaboration that I have with her, rather than doing the internal “fuss and grump” that her presence seems to always inspire.

Question: What can I do to quiet my inner critic?

Delos TarotReading Summary: Keep in mind how far I have come and all that I have (Ten of Pentacles), while emotionally focusing less on how much further I could have gone.  Instead, find that inner quiet needed to assure myself I am making the best decisions possible in the moment.

Take Away: My inner critic is something that I struggle with quite a lot.  It always has something to say, and what it has to say is usually not all that useful other than to push me harder (which, honestly, is something I do in spades already).  The cards indicate that to silence my inner critic, I need to focus more on gratitude for the now rather than focusing so intently on where I’m going and what I could do better. And that I need to remember that hindsight is 20/20, but that decisions I have made were the absolute best decisions accessible to me in the moment.

One thought on “Gratitude, Not Attitude

  1. I’m something of a critic regarding your helper as well as, as you know, I don’t think she has a good work ethic and tends to try and manipulate things to get what she wants. Also, I worry that when you actually need her, she’s not going to be entirely reliable.

    With all this in mind, I don’t blame you for being a bit resentful about having her there, especially when you are dropping and she’s there for an extended period of time. Enough is enough and unless it’s a critical rush, I think you should keep her to the regular amount of hours in a day and let her come back if she wants to work more instead of trying to cram it all into one time period where you have no time to “relax” and be on watch.

    And yes, love, your inner critic always has alot to say and typically I disagree with it’s message.

    I love you baby. Always
