What we began with yesterday’s message, was a jumping-off point for what I was shown today.  The Tortoise And Hare fable wasn’t the image I saw, but it was what the scenes reminded me of, and what they represented.

Steady forward momentum.

             When we set our goal, then make (loose!) plans for getting it in  motion, we’ve started a process.  We have prepared for the next turning point in our journey.

              As we travel along, keeping this intention in mind, continuing the actions and attitude which will aid in its manifestation, well then, that’s some impressively steady progress.

             For more encouragement, let’s look at our daily draw.  Still within the regular rotation around our card altar, we are being shown that this recommended method is exactly the way to keep ourselves balanced and on the correct path.

"Stress  ~ 7  ~  Fire: Action  ~"
Stress ~
7 ~ Fire: Action ~

             Appearing in the Contrary position, we’re being reminded of how well we CAN manage the chaos and stress in our lives.  We’ve already begun to do exactly that by our forward momentum.

             We are stronger than whatever it is we are facing, or trying to juggle.  Our balance is not as precarious as the character in this illustration.  By staying calm and keeping our focused intention, we won’t be anything like these guys.

Do we look like we're having fun?  Because we ARE!
Do we look like we’re having a good time? Because we ARE!

             Thanks, Karen Buys, for coming down to have dinner with us.  Don’t forget: Fun and Self-Care!

  1. Look, I’m commenting!! I obviously need to go back to reading this on the computer instead of my phone. Thanks for dinner! It was awesome. Julielanders – 1. she’s even better in person. 2. If you haven’t already, or even if you have and it was a while ago, ask Julie to do a reading for you. It’s EXACTLY what you need to hear. 3. Dan is extremely helpful when you’re lost in Eugene. 4. And Emma is darling.
    p.s. not the most flattering picture of me . . .

    . . . . I’ll e-mail you the others, and then you can put them ALL up at your place. (Hey, at least YOU have eyes in this shot!)

  2. Steady forward momentum is something I have to always remind myself about. Waiting or trying to get things done all at once means that often they don’t get done or you have an even bigger mess to deal with by the time you get there.

    My gardening is one of those things. I keep forcing myself to the garden everyday even if it’s only 15 minutes. ‘Cause 15 minutes is more than nothing. Spending an entire day out there would mean me crippled up for a month. Every little bit counts! I keep reminding myself of this when I only have time for a few weeds. And then there is the house, the paperwork (OMG), ….

    Assigning a manageable and set time, steadily, is a great way to accomplish a LOT!

  3. Yeah, trying to DO ALL THE THINGS doesn’t work for me. It leaves me flat out in bed for days. Yesterday I did more than normal — a LOT more than normal — and am feeling it, but it could be worse. So today I intend to do SOME more than normal, but not tons. I think that it is like eating a meal in a healthy way: a bit of this, then a bit of that, then a bit of another thing, not snarfing everything down like a vacuum. Today I am to do a bit of this and a bit of that.

    Pacing, also important to remember.
