54 Unbalanced...

I am in the middle of chaos-stress week and have to admit that I am not living in the present, I am waiting for friday when it will be over for this time...

Yesterday I had a meeting booked for a main article, photographer booked too. As I was gettingg ready to drive we learned that Volvo factory is shutting down moving production to Poland, so I had to fight to get the photographer on my booking... driving south I called the person I was going to interview because I risked to be some minutes late because of that dicussion ... and she had forgotten all about it and was still in Gothenburg. Had to turn back, calling the photographer and stopping him as well - and had to come up with a solution for the job gone, since it was an important one for my paper, front photo and all...but those things energize me, was not to bad and I did book that lady more than a week ago so this last-minute thing was not because I was late.

But - I hade a whopper meal at the drivethrough and I had too much for dinner - ate about 2 600 cal yesterday and with only 35 minutes of walking, that was not great...

Will try to go to the gym today but I do have A LOT to do at work and it gnaws my conscience...

A friend texted - she was feeling stressed, had to much work, is in a divorce and feel lonely and scared - she asked me to draw a tarot card for her. I did and it was the sun - really good card, telling you that you are on the right path and should enjoy your ability... so I took two cards for myself - one for the choice of going to 80 procent of work now and another for waiting... the now-choice was the hierophant - which means I should not do it. emoticon

Better get going- tough day ahead! Good thing that friends are taking care of doggy!

    I can certainly understand wanting Friday to come.

    As for the tarot cards; I would not make my important life decisions based on the drawing of a card, but only upon careful thought and research as to what to do.

    I remember when I was 16 I used to make decisions based on the drawing of a straw. I would cut 2 different lengths of straws. put them into a glass, close my eyes, twirl the straws around in the glass and pick a straw, with the decision already made as to which choices the short or long straw would mean.

    Choices aren't easy, but I would much rather make a thoughtful choice and be responsible for my choices, than basically have no choice in the matter due to it being made through the drawing of straws.

    I consider the tarot card thing basically what I was doing with the straws. And, when I gained some maturity I realized that I had to make the decisions based on my actual thoughts and choices, not on some random thing.

    I understand TGIF; hang in there and do what you need to do. Friday's coming, yesterday is gone, today's a new day. Be well.

    It is SO hard when we overwork! I have been having similar overwork and stress - it can wreak havoc with eating and exercise. I hope things smooth out and you have a restful weekend. Is your migraine gone?

    I got lost for awhile there - I really wish SP would come up with a more permanent "Get An Email Alert Each Time [Sparkler] Posts." As it is, if you miss one at any point, it immediately stops notifying you. And in this case, it means I thought you hadn't been posting any blogs - foolish me, lol...

    Re the hierophant: the book I use says the Hierophant represents the traditional and conformity - "The importance of ...the conventions of society." The overall meaning (according to the book's interpretation) is "To be ruled by the conventional." So I think it means you shouldn't go to work, at least not putting in the traditional time in a traditional office and working in a conforming way. Instead, I think it means - whether you actually go to a workplace or not - you should spend this day being UNconventional. If that means bringing some unusual methods and new ideas to what could be a regular assignment, why, do it. If it means taking the day off and using it to recharge and restore, to generate some mental and emotional energy by cutting loose for a day, then do that.

    Hmmm... didn't solve the choice, I guess, but it's fun to tinker with the cards all the same, lol...
