My Cross To Bear

Just a quickie this week, as I have an essay to write.  Gosh, you'd think I'd be past that at my age, but I can't seem to stay away from expanding my horizons :)  So, I asked the cards for some advice on getting this essay done:
Flowers, Cross, House
One message I get here is about finding a balance between getting creative and staying within my comfort zone when facing this kind of challenge.  I've had plenty of experience writing essays over the decades, but doing things by rote is boring.  So, I need to find the joy in the beauty of the subject, the challenge that feels like a gift because it inspires me to explore, and to create a new comfort zone for myself beyond the old one. 

Another message is that I need to balance creativity with my family life, which is a big challenge in and of itself.  Essays take time, and kids definitely take time, too.  Still, the kids aren't going anywhereWhereas if I don't get this essay written in the next seven days, it's me that won't be going anywhere: I need to pass this to move onto the next level of this training!  So, while I need to cover the basics of family life (getting the kids to school, making sure they eat enough, getting them to bed), maybe other times they can play by themselves or watch Kids Youtube for a bit while mummy sits at her computer...

And just a quick message: next week's post will be out on Thursday instead of Wednesday, as it's part of the next Tarot Blog Hop :)

    1. Lol, I wish! My Dear One said, "It should only take a couple of hours to write, right?" But, what with stopping to find appropriate citations and making sure I have my references in order, I find it takes much longer...
