Work It Out

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Golden Age of Romance Comics TarotToday’s draw is the Eight of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of ignoring the obvious, having a victim mentality, feeling trapped, and encountering self-imposed restrictions.

So… instead of being a pussy about my arm hurting, this card is very much about doing something about it.  I did this to myself, and I know how to fix it.

I’ve been feeling very clouded in the head though, and kind of stewing in the pain instead of reasoning out the exact details of the injury and beginning to treat it.

Today’s card is a reminder that I’m not going to start healing until I take a good look at the damage and reason out a treatment plan.  Only then will I be able to start to act and work on making things better.

Philosophical Question for February 9th
: Why do I fear failure when I know I can learn from my mistakes?

Golden Age of Romance Comics TarotReading Summary: When I experience failure, I end up even more determined and thus end up pushing myself even harder to succeed (Five of Swords). As I turn toward trying again, this reaction moves me in the opposite direction of happiness (The Sun) and towards overwhelm and burnout instead (Ten of Wands).

Take Away: It is not failure that I fear, or even disappointment. It is that perfectionist within me that wants to take that failure and turn it into success.  It’s the part of me that says “this didn’t work, which means next time I can do better”.   Instead of letting go, a need rises up in me to try again.  This is why I fear failure, because then I try to fit trying again in with everything else on my plate instead of setting it aside for later… or setting it aside for good.

I bought poppy seed muffins today.  I don’t buy them often because they are SO f’ing good. But I did today… because they are SO f’ing good.

One thought on “Work It Out

  1. You better he taking care of that arm man. And I really don’t like you using the word pussy to describe it yourself or your pain.

    That’s that nasty inner narrative and it needs to back the fuck up. Take care of your arm, follow thru on your plan on to get to the woods and stop being so damn mean to yourself.
