Two halves.

             Tomorrow night will be the second to last day of work.  Some of us will go in on Sunday to break down the booth.  When we all started this we were told that we’d be working up to the 1st.  Right.

             Much like nearly everything else this year, that statement was not an honest representation of the facts.  No worries, it won’t bother me after this weekend.  Because I won’t be coming back.  Whether the kiosk does or not, no longer my concern.

              I needed to learn some lessons from this experience.  And I have.  I’ve also hired some outstandingly wonderful people.  They are my bonus.  I don’t doubt that they’ll be a part of my life (somewhere, somehow) for a long time.

             This company, however, will not.  I did a damn good job, I’m a great boss.  The management, sadly, has a new toy (an iPad operating system).  It pretty much overshadowed all else.  Including employees, customers, and stock.

             I’m not sorry to see the season end.  Where we need to focus now, is on letting folks know that I’m also a terrific Tarot Card reader, and that everyone can benefit from hiring me.  If my readings can become consistent throughout the year, then I won’t even NEED to look for outside work.

             If this is not the case, I know that I still CAN do the job.  Just not with these people again.

             What I woke up with today talks about that, and about how our path is

similar and different.

             We are made of matter, but our thoughts are nothing anyone can hold in their hands.  We are physical beings, but we are also spiritual.  We learn lessons, and we master our crafts.

             We are all the same, in that we eat and we breathe and we live in a similar way.  But we are all individuals who are vastly different.  When we cross paths with others we sometimes compare stories, backgrounds, experiences.

             These interactions are part of our journey, part of what makes up the fabric of our lives.  Seeing the commonality in each of our Earth brothers and sisters, as well as seeing the distinctive diversity of us all, shows our partnership here in this adventure.

             I was directed to leave our regular rotation earlier, in order to continue this message.  But without the guidebook’s definition.

"Parenting and Children"

Parenting and Children

             We’ve discussed here before the fact of how families are not just those who are related to us by blood.  When I see this card it points to that truth.

             In some form or another, we’re all the children and we’re all the parents.  We are all the students and we are all the teachers.  We’re similar, and yet different.

             The fairies arrived to remind us of how valuable our relationships are.  No matter what label someone wears in our life, they are in our life, and THAT’S the point.

(Adjusted) Affirmation:

I allow my heart to open up so that I can feel compassion and love for all.

flowers for your boss

To her boss (me!) on our last day of working together.
I nearly cried.

             Thank you, Kori, for more than I can say.  You’ll be hearing from me soon, I promise!

             Tomorrow I’ll grab a photo of another amazing gift.  I need one small part to make it complete.

  1. What an amazing, and thoughtful gift. I love flowers in the winter; they hold such promise for spring. My friend Mary received 4 seed catalogs in the mail yesterday (I am sure that is no accident, timing them to arrive just after Christmas!) I am glad you learned from your time back at the mall. Nice lesson to have tucked in your hip pocket.

    Interesting thing about gadgets… They are often hailed as the “best new thing” and will “make everything easy”. I can think of a few gadgets in the numbered people’s world that are like that; coming immediately to mind is mounting a computer in the patrol car. Great tool, but it makes for lazy officers (just run something instead of observing and developing your own reasons for stops/contacts) and lazy dispatchers (it’s entered in the call, rather than airing information). Or pepper spray.

    Love the message and the card today. I like to believe that I can learn something from everyone I meet, and that I have something valuable to teach most people.

    I agree with you completely about the gadgets causing a lack of people actually doing their job.

  2. I like the message too. Given how I’ve been feeling recently about not having my family of birth, it’s good to keep reminding myself that I still have family. And blood ties don’t make family or I’d still be connected to my father’s family (and be interested in being connected to my mother’s family).

    I like gadgets and computers in general, but I know that they don’t automagically make our lives better. Except for specific applications (some of which haven’t been created yet), mostly they serve as toys. But in those specific applications (such as word processors, email and other communications tools), then those gadgets and computers have made our lives better. Too often they just make things more complicated.

    In this case, WAY more complicated than it needed to be, and was previously, without the gadget.

  3. Family! Yay! Family. sigh. I loves them, I do, but I truly deeply really really need some alone time. And I miss my dog.

    And can’t you go out with the kayak this time?

  4. The flowers are beautiful! How wonderful that despite the management issues, someone appreciated your gifts!

    Xenatuba, YES! this is THE time of year for us plantaholics to drool, dream, and make copius wish lists. One year my daughter and I made a list of all the seeds we wanted. It was nearly $3000.00 worth! 🙂

    Saver came home today! It’s nice to have the kids home!

    It IS nice to have them home!
