I’m pre-writing tonight, sitting down early. Our day went slightly different from the usual Tuesday. Because here’s the thing, when a person (or two persons, in this case) has kids, they have kids FOREVER. Your life will be wrapped around theirs ALWAYS.
Which, I think, is actually pretty damn cool. (Just sometimes, ya know, it can be slightly disruptive.)
So let’s get right to it. We need to discuss the messages du jour. They are MIXED, to say the least. Reminiscent of our Osho Zen draw from the other day. Pushing and pulling. Back and forth. Saying one thing but looking like another.
I woke up with the idea of movement in my head, like: go, get going. But then I also heard that we need to be: moderating, observing, seeing. It felt like the focus was all related to: heath. Additionally, we got this:
the journey is more important than the pace.
Before we take this further, look at what was on the card altar, in our regular rotation spot.
You’ve been working hard. Take a nap and get some rest.
This card asks you to slow down, rest, and be very gentle with yourself right now. Can you cancel your appointments today (or for the rest of the day) and take a nap? Be drawing this card, you are urged to let go of unnecessary activities, and to focus on self-renewal.
Give yourself a hug, look in the mirror, and say ‘I love you. I promise to treat you with the respect and care that you deserve. You’re beautiful!’
No rushing or time urgency is allowed today! This is a day of sweet kindness, where you treat yourself as gently as a baby cradled in your arms.”
See what I mean? Where do we go with this? Which direction do we turn? Are we moving when we should be sitting down? Are we lounging when we should be up and moving?
After some consideration (and forced Quiet Time), this is what I heard: our health is important, mental-physical-spiritual. The condition of our ENTIRE self needs to be taken into consideration.
My thoughts are that if we simply listen, as was the suggestion yesterday, we’ll know which direction is best. How much and how little is required of us. The most important part is that we do it with CARE, Self-Care is the key. Keep that lovingkindness in mind.

was just for me on two wheels, Dan had to drive some places. We met at the gym, then I pedaled home (after two errands, explained below), so we don’t get to see his map, but the distance was 9.180, in 53 minutes and one second, with an average speed of 10.3 MPH.
is also a gift idea. For EVERYone! Here’s what I picked up on my way home this afternoon. (After stopping at the library, of course.)
Seriously. So freaking good. Can NOT make these at home. And the best part, other than the fact that they SHIP THEM TO YOUR DOOR if you don’t live here in River City, is that I know who is making them, and I am assured that they’re doing an excellent job.
