Remember that “be adaptable” message we got recently? Yeah. It hit me full on the other night. Which spilled over into yesterday and today. I had to rush around, fret a bunch, scramble some, creatively rearrange, and basically just be very adaptable.
I also had to fall apart for a minute. What we’ve noticed, in all of this Change Your Brain work and the New Improved Me projects, is that the break-down time has diminished. Dramatically! I still have to process the change, and I still seem unable to just bounce on out with the new plan. But I get there.
And I get there in a quicker, more efficient way. Which, to us, is major. And supremely encouraging. Plus, it comes with presents. I was given a gift this afternoon, for being a good student.
This gorgeous creature was less than two miles from my house. I’d barely pedaled onto the bike path, and there it was. S/he posed nicely while I made sure the safety strap was secure on my wrist while I climbed up on to the cement edge to get a good view. Doing our homework pays off, I’m here to tell ya!
Because of some mandatory overtime on The Deputy’s schedule, waking up for me today was not how it usually goes. I stood in my window and heard no message. So I just went about the beginning part of my afternoon, knowing it would show up. And it did.
Yes, you CAN do this.
To me, this made much more sense when I flipped over the card for our daily draw. The two go together perfectly. And quite helpfully, as well.
As she tilted sideways on the stack, I understood what was being said. Not an upside-down definition, but one with a tweak, to be sure.
Even when our energy feels drained, here’s the thing, we HAVE that Wand. We HAVE that inner strength. We HAVE that spark of brilliance.
Sometimes it is simply so difficult to reach, like barely/almost/just-a-teensy-bit-beyond our fingertips. But we CAN get there. We absolutely DO have the power to push on past whatever limits we THINK are insurmountable.
For one thing, here’s the Page, showing us that by her very presence, we have all it takes to get where we want (or need) to be. Additionally, it’s what we came here to do, so we must do it. All of those barriers are really lessons, not blockades at all.
The shine from our Wand is breathtakingly bright and powerful, it’s the light coming from within us. So, obviously, if we stumble from time to time that’s not going to dim our brilliance, it’s merely going to slow us down temporarily.
What we always need to remember is that we are capable of nearly anything. We are stronger than we even realize. We can totally get to where we need to go. Even if it takes us a while.

is a local place. For you who live close by, please check it out. For those who are far away, I’ll take you there when you come visit me.
It’s called Noble Cafe and Espresso, and was recently purchased by a young woman named April. No, I haven’t met her yet, but I will. Dan got his lunch there this afternoon, and Jade grabs his pre-shift coffee there often. The food, from what I’ve heard and tasted so far, is extremely good.
