Today’s meditation was skipped.
Today’s draw is the House and Mountain cards from the Merry Christmas Lenormand.
Over the past few days, I’ve been trying to talk out a difficult situation with someone I consider to be a part of my “online family”. It’s not been an easy discussion, and sometimes it feels like it’s not going all that well. Or… going well at all.
These cards are a reminder that difficult does not mean impossible, and that it’s time to deal with the elephants in the room that we’ve all been trying to push into the corner and ignore for a long time… no matter how difficult it becomes, or how much it sucks.
These cards also pose a question. What discussions with family and friends are you avoiding? What ugly or uncomfortable business with those close to you needs dealt with to clear the air?

I let Jer drive and took a nap in the car.
One thought on “Difficult Conversations and White Elephants”
You consider her a part of your “family” I actually found that pretty surprising as I don’t feel that at all in that regard.
Gah I am so glad the holidays are over. Now if I can get through another week of not having you regularly, I can hopefully get you back again. It’s been such a long time without you
