We’ve discussed here before how it’s so important to live a genuine and honest life, doing what we love.  Being true to ourselves helps us to stay on our path and learn our lessons.

             Apparently, that’s not enough.  What I was shown this morning is about the value which is to be found in frivolity.  Having fun is like the frosting on our cupcake of life.

Filling in the gaps.

             Because as much as we love our work.  (We ARE all doing work that we love, right?)  We also need our time off.

             Even if it’s a mere three quick minutes to step away.  Behind a door.  Sitting in a car.  Leaning on a tree.  Take it!  It’s yours.  The healing begins immediately.

             And on our card altar right now, within the regular rotation, we have this encouragement.  (I continue to adore this deck.  Seriously.  I absolutely do.)

“Igniting Courage  ~

‘I am strong, valiant, and courageous.’

Card Meaning:

Move forward fearlessly.  Gather your inner forces and take a risk.  Speak up for yourself by honoring your truth.  This isn’t the time to be timid and hold back.  

Go forward gallantly with your banner of truth waving in the wind.  You are a light bearer for others.

The Universe wants you to know:

Being courageous doesn’t mean that you are not afraid.  It means that in spite of fear and hesitation, you take action anyway.

It’s all right to fall down – just don’t stay down.  Do not allow yourself to be limited by the beliefs of others or even your own beliefs.  Face your fears.

 Go beyond the boundaries of your self-imposed barriers.  Live passionately and boldly.

Questions to ask yourself:

What could this card represent about my own fears?  How can I overcome fear and step into courage?  What is the ultimate outcome if I conquer my hesitations?


I am strong, valiant, and courageous.”

Today’s Sharing:

is this comment left on my Instagram account.  It nearly made me cry.

“So proud and happy to be related to you . . . .  Philanthropy isn’t just about giving money.  Sometimes, most times, giving of yourself (time, blood, hair) is by far a greater gift.”

             Thank you, Sister-in-California.  We do things, and yet we don’t always know if they get noticed.  I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you, as well.

One thought on “Something Extra

  1. It’s sad, it’s a good message today. But all my brain keeps thinking is, “Oooo, frosting…mmmm, frosting…how about buttercream? Lemon? ummm…”. *sigh*

    Nothing sad there,
