Hills and Valleys, Ins and Outs

             Some days are simply more challenging than others.  I hit a rough patch this week (several, actually).  The dates next week (and the ones right after) won’t help get me past that.

            What HAS been encouraging and uplifting, is my family. I truly hope that wherever you are, whoever you are, you have the kind of support I do.  If you do not?  Contact me, I’ll send you a virtual hug and we can chat.

             As I said in our last post, I’m very fortunate to have someone who picks me up when I stumble.  We also have three incredibly brilliant and kind (adult) children.  As a bonus, I have a mom and dad who adore me and are just up the highway.

             When we are struggling, as I have been lately, it’s helpful to go within, to see what messages our Team has for us.  As if in total validation, this card came up.  It is the entire message right now.

             Well, that and a reminder.  Focus on the haves, leave those have-nots for someone else to worry about.

is to thank Louise Hay.  She left us this week, passing peacefully in her sleep.  She was 90, and she was a gift to us all.

Advance and Process

             I’m sitting at a make-shift desk, in the house where we now live.  My Empress occupies our formal adobe. It’s been slow, and difficult.  But ….. I’m sitting at a make-shift desk.  In the house.  Where we now live.

             Let’s call that progress, shall we?  Because, what I’ve been hearing about, and what I’m learning so clearly right now, is that we must be thankful, we must notice the gifts.  We absolutely must

stay flexible.

             Nothing around here is done.  Nothing at the other house is done, either.  Two families are half-in, half-out of old and new situations.  But for this moment in time, none of us is homeLESS.  We are dry in the rain and warm in the cold.  (Hopefully, we’ll also be cool in the heat, too.)

             Things change.  That’s the way our journey goes.  It’s the very WAY this life is.  When we get too caught up in staying the same, we lose out on what might come along for us.

             It’s been challenging, this move, this tiny bit of progress.  But it’s also been kinda fun.  And that’s what we all could focus more on.  The fun.  The joy.  The little steps of advancement.

             Behind me, sitting atop (what is now taking the place of) our altar, is a great validation.  We have to take the time to see the nice vantage points.   Stop along the route and enjoy pleasant surroundings.

             The travel is part of this adventure!  We are constantly in motion, let’s notice and appreciate where it takes us.

Six of Swords

This is one of the VisionQuest cards.  The journey, the lesson, the movement is what we focus on here.

But also, take note of where this individual is headed.  See the tiny star in that hillside?

The goal is to find our shining future, and aim for it; enjoy the scenery, and get to our destination when we get there.  It’ll be well worth the time spent.  Because truthfully, we have plenty of time to spend.

is this view.  There is almost nothing hung on our walls right now, except this.  I needed to see them, and spend time with them.  Maybe you do, too.
