6-24-14


Today was a bizarre and somewhat frustrating day.
Thunderstorms and torrential downpours one minute.... trying to clear the next... then rains again.
Work was crazy as well... mimicking the storms I suppose...

Lessons for the day became:
-do one thing at a time. Others will have to wait.
-prioritize who demands your time.
-your time is valuable... even if others don't think so.
-your work is valuable. If everyone could do what you could do... the job wouldn't be there in the first place.
-compromise is painful sometimes... for everyone involved.

Now granted. These are not "new" lessons.
But sometimes life has a way of re-enforcing what you really need to learn and put into practice.
Head knowledge is one thing.... putting it into practice can be another.

And then came Mama Fox.
I am quite convinced she was telling me to "wise" up. .. hence my ramblings today.
According to one website on totem animals:

"If Fox has made Her appearance in your life;
The solution to a problem is at hand. The Fox spirit is the grand problem solver. She will guide you to solitude and silence until the way out is shown. A healthy combination of persistence and patience will strike a balance that picks apart a problem until it is solved.
Alternatively, are you having trouble adjusting to a new living situation or job? Do you feel like you’re barely scraping by? When sly Fox crosses your path it can be a signal to open your eyes, so that you can see the situation for what it is – not as you wish it to be.
When a situation or environment is difficult allow yourself to be fluid and adaptable. You have all the tools and resources you need to turn money, career, or living difficulties around."

--wise words indeed.
