Hello, Monday! It's a new month and a new week! Woot! So much potential for us this week, are you ready? I'm so ready. I really don't have a lot on my plate other than playing around the house and moving things around, also diving into some reading. I'm waiting on three books to arrive today this week, yay! Book mail is the best kind of mail!
Ok, let's check out our card of the week and see what energy is at play for the next 7 days!
2 of Coins
Balance your shit! If you're like me, you struggle with doing everything at once (because you insist on doing it all) and tend to drop the ball on a lot of things. I always give the excuse "I'm a Gemini, can't help it..." but that excuse can only get me so far, haha! Don't blame Mercury RX either, this is totally on you.
The big question is how do we keep things running smoothly all while staying focused and getting things handled. Prioritize! Make lists, check things off, sort things into piles, keep a planner (up to date), eat the toad, the list goes on. Do whatever it is you need to do in order to better handle what's thrown your way.
Don't want to juggle life all at once? You don't have to! I always use the phrase "eat the toad". If you're not familiar with this phrase it simply means: do the task you don't want to do the most, first. Get it out of the way! By doing this, chances are everything else will seem much easier, or at least it should. Pick and choose what needs your attention the most, then see where you can fit all of life's other tasks.
Also, you don't have to do hold all this weight on your own either. See those two hands reaching out of the ground in the card? Those belong to those who want to give you a hand. For me, I hate asking for help but sometimes I gotta bite the bullet and voice my needs. It's not always easy to ask for assistance, we all want to look like we have it all together but truth is, we don't and that's totally ok! We're human, not machines. We need rest and we need a break from time to time. So don't be afraid to pass on some tasks to others around you. Prioritize your to-do lists. Balance is the end result and goal this week, everything in moderation and not all at once.
I found it really funny that the 2 of Coins popped up this week, I'm getting back to my daily yoga routine... talk about balance!
- What do I need to focus on?
- Is there something this week that can use some extra hands?
- Why am I struggling to do it all? What am I missing?
- When do I feel the most pressure in balancing my life (job, home, kids, etc)?
What do you think about the 2 of Coins?
How do you see this card coming in play for you this week?
