Winter to Spring

Whew wee, ready for Spring!  Another couple of cold days and this morning the cold has seeped into my bones. 
Been away from home this last week, house sitting. Without the comfort of my own home and sleep deprived, the chill is taking a toll. 
There are signs of change.  I have noticed flocks of Geese on the wing and fields of Robins in the fallow fields.  The Sun is up a few more minutes each day as her rotation shifts to give us blessings of longer sunlit days. In two more weeks we change our clocks forward one hour, seemingly giving us a longer day.  Still it the returning length of day and sunshine that gives me the fortitude to hang in there.  Bright Blessings.

One size

Why ask why?  Change happens when we ask why?  If the answer doesn't fit for us we can make the difference; either we change or we change the original answer to the why.  One size does not fit all, nor the answer to the asked why? fit for everyone.  Differences should be celebrated, not forced into conformity.

Paper and pen please

But which book?  Always following in the footsteps of our parents, teachers, men in white coats?  Doing what they do, what they have done, repeating the same mistakes, and stepping in the poo they dropped along the way.  Sure, some of it was pretty good advice, lots of it doesn't work with the evolution of the years.
Listen to the ancestors and adapt the good and toss the stuff that doesn't work; write your own story.

Look again

1,2,3,4  Count them to remind myself just how fortunate of a gal I am.  When I start to commiserate with myself over the bits of This n That, the unfairness, the lack, inconsiderate drivers, the local and worse, national news.  My nerve damaged unsteady legs, the scarcity.  I realize that I understand the difference of all the above.  I know right from wrong. I acknowledge the abundance that I do have. That there are days that I drive haphazardly.  That I can do some good to offset the crap dished out on the news.  And though I have to move slower and with more caution, my legs still work.  I need to look for the rainbows and the silver-lining in my clouds.
Monday. Yay! I made it another week.  Let me behold this one.

To Thine Ownself

I hold loyalty as one the most important attributes of others.
I always tried to be and give my best to others, and hoped for the best from them.  Sadly, I have been disappointed a lot.  That disappointment I realize, at least now as I have matured somewhat, is my issue, not theirs.
I find my loyalty to myself a bit lacking.  I yield a bit too much, maybe always have.
"This above all others: to thine ownself be true."

Ouie

Ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch.
Overmuch on the ouches.  One for every sword point to pierce my mind.  I was wronged at the first of the week, that was the ouie.  The ouches were because I replayed it over and over and over.  The person that did me wrong got more mileage out of the misdeed than they can ever know.
Who did the most wrong, me.  Me to me.  A lesson I keep taking over and over again; to the Tenth Power.

Obligation

Even in her 'down' time she is rigid.  Bound by convention and expectations, this Queen of Swords sits stiffly in her garden.  Does she or can she give herself some time for reprieve?  Not today she doesn't.

Oppression

Traditional Card would be The Tower.  Yuck.
The Wawalak, were twin sisters that through no fault of their own, were punished because they were women and their children suffered the same fate.  Somehow or someone eventually intervened and they were saved and converted to Goddesses.
Sometimes we have to go through the trauma, the misery, lament in darkness, which then shows us the way out and we are better, stronger, more self-aware because of the journey.  The fall from The Tower can lead to better things, and mostly that depends on the mindset.  So instead of 'yuck' I might as well say "okay if I must, let's do this" and then be on my way.

Sun up

"Sun is up time's at hand. There's a stir across the land.  And so begins another day, on Life's highway."  Steve Wariner ~lyrics.

Okay new day, new start.  Trouble moving?  Grab a walking stick and get yourself going. Until we draw our last  breath, there are still things to do.

The winds of change

There are moments in life that you know there needs to be change.  Anxiety or excitement ramps up.  Adrenaline flows through our body in preparation or anticipation.  For we must change.  With this Strength card coming after The Wheel, the change has occurred, and so we have to do what needs done, go where we must go, change what we must change.  Some might call that Evolution.  And isn't that what our lives are, evolution, changes and changing from birth to death.  That in itself requires Strength.
