Pig Out!

I am one who craves chocolate. I am one who can be a real pig about it. I am one who is looking after my heart by avoiding oily foods.

Today I had more shots in my neck. An epidural in my neck and about 6 trigger points in my shoulder. I am looking for comfort food! This card reminds me that I will only regret stepping off the path of healthy eating. I did make some flax seed focaccia last night, so I was able to have an almond butter sandwich. Not the peanut butter and potato chip of my childhood, but close enough to make me feel better. The lack of chocolate is still an issue. I will have to research that a bit more.

I am one who is looking for energy. I am one who is grounded. I am one who feels struck by lightning.

I struggle daily with finding the energy to accomplish normal tasks. There just isn't enough energy for the fun stuff lately. I am encouraged by the fact that I will soon have more time to rest and follow my art. The energy is out there, I just need to find it!

Craving Order

I am one who loves to use a sharp pencil. I am one who loves color. I am one who likes variety. I am one who likes to have some order in my life, but the flexibility to be creative.

As I struggle with finding the time and energy for my art, I crave order. My studio is such a mess I can't even work in it. I would go to Helios and work, but I don't have the time. My life is filled right now with medical stuff and my 2 jobs. On June 2nd I start to train our new administrator, Diane. So by mid June I will have more time. Yeah!

Off the beaten path

I am one who is being reborn. I am one who goes with the flow. I am one who is veering off the ordinary path.

Today this card makes me feel like I should just go with the flow, but for some reason am veering off the path. I guess I am feeling a bit stressed. I know I am tired! I need to find some time for me to be creative!

I am one who is grateful for those who have gone before me. I am one who embraces the wisdom they have imparted. I am one who feels protected by the universe.

This card always makes me feel safe and secure in the knowledge that I am held by the universe. As I was born on All Saints' Day, it is my birth day card.

Today I know I will need the wisdom of the universe. We begin our selection process for the church administrator job I am currently holding as interim.

I am one who is grounded. I am on who is blooming. I am one who is vibrant. I am one who isopeing toward the sun.

After two days of rain, I am so ready for some color in my life. Today is the day I have to accomplish everything for my trip to Oregon. Perhaps the weather here is getting me in an Oregon state of mind!

I am one looking for a way past the hedgerow. I am one who is anticipating what is on the other side. I am one who is hoping the grass is greener over there.

Today I continue on the path to "greener pastures." I am so busy this week that I can only look ahead to what is coming up. Even though most of what I have to do is in preparation for the trip. I really need to focus on what I need to accomplish for this week and not for the weeks to come. The suitcase won't pack itself!

Life Path

I am one who is emerging from her chrysalis. I am one who is choosing which path to follow. I am one who is flying off the path set for her at birth.

This is a recurring theme with me. I really need to find a path and stick to it for a while. I keep thinking the path I need will feel right. Are they different paths, or just a meandering main path? Questions I keep asking myself, but I have no answers.

Ancient needs

I am one who acknowledges the ancient. I am one who is her best at dawn. I am one who enjoys having solitary time in nature. I am one who has a close connection to the earth.

As I get ready to go hunting and gathering today, I am reminded how much I love spending my Saturday mornings with Rod looking for things at garage sales. The early morning hunt, it fulfills an ancient yearning. I feel a basic need to hunt & gather. Since I am not interested in hunting animals and birds, it is a great substitute for the need that is in my genetic make up.

Stoic Wisdom

I am one who grounded in the Universe. I am one who is inspired by the rosy sunrise. I am the one who greets each day with stoic wisdom.

Today I am embarking on a much visited path. I was at LOUU for the interim administrator job. The stoic wisdom will really be useful on this path for as long as it lasts.

Protect me!

I am one who is looking for ways to survive. I am one who is needy and sees the need in others.

Today this card feels like a reminder to protect myself. I am back in an old job that can be very invasive to my private life. The job is only temporary as they search for someone to fill the position. I need to remember to take care of myself and not let the job stress me.
