Today’s meditation was… ugh…. you guessed it. Skipped again.
Sometimes life is unfair. Sometimes, things have to come to a head. And yeah, sometimes it really sucks. Everyone feels these moments of defeat and as if life is picking on them. Everyone.
That doesn’t mean that life is against you, though, or that you’re cursed with bad luck. What it means is that your life is out of balance in some way, and is trying to balance itself out and align itself along the path you need to tread. You’ve gone off course… and often, the crappy shit happening in your life is a course correction to put you back on the right path.
Don’t forget this during troubled times. Trust that life is seeking balance. Sometimes that means crappy shit has to happen.

Question for July 24th + Bonus Question
If I could live my life more creatively, I would…
Drought and Six of Pentacles
…find myself struggling to contribute more to others.
The thing is? I only have so much time in a day and so much energy to give out. More time pushed into creative endeavors means less time for other people, less time for myself, and less time in general. Creativity takes time, and no matter how much I might enjoy it, I don’t enjoy the drought of energy and feelings of burnout that overextending myself can bring with it.
How can I balance my energetic output for a healthier and happier life?
You Are Sacred and Five of Cups Rx
Stop ignoring what you need. Treat yourself as if you are sacred, instead of as an afterthought. Your needs are important and shouldn’t be put off or ignored.
This is something I’m working on, although those six weeks of the holiday rush are coming, and as much kindness as I can give myself now, I know that time of energetic drought mentioned in the first question is coming.

Question: Where in life do I need to be more serious and buckle down?
Reading Summary: Moving away from (Three of Wands) allowing your childhood and past negative experiences (Six of Cups Rx) to influence the present and how you treat yourself in the now (Ten of Wands atop Nine of Cups).
Take Away: Although you’re taking time off, and you’re working on putting the past in its place, you’re still in a mindset where you’re trying to overwhelm yourself with things to do and that need to get done. It’s blocking your path to happiness and it’s something that you’re going to have to deal with, because it’s not going to go away on its own.
Work at building that severing gap between the present and the past, and remember that it’s okay to go slow, to take time for your self, and to dawdle when you’re enjoying yourself.

So, this is a bit different from my normal self kindness today. I made the conscious choice to not get upset and worked up about EA and his super rude, thieving ways. Normally the kind of shit he pulled would really bug me a lot, but I feel like I just don’t have the “oomph” to really give a fuck where he’s concerned.
