I'm coming to the end of my time with the Druidcraft, so I thought I'd put it away with a look at the coming week.
Question: What is the most important thing for me to focus on this next week?
Indeed. Money (or the lack of it) is a highlighted issue this week, as I'm waiting on a check that will arrive on Friday and meanwhile things are so tight I'm needing to calculate toilet paper usage to make sure we get there. hah! It's a short term state of broke to be gotten through. Unfortunately, it's happening more often as gas and groceries go up - my current budget is no longer covering necessities and there's no more money to budget to it.
But beyond that, I'm also focusing on offering readings through LivePerson. It's slow going and money earned is paid out monthly, so what I do this week is about bringing in a little extra money a few weeks from now, but it is a beginning. It brings with it the potential for enough extra income in my budget to not have to have these periodic broke weeks where even the most basic requirements have to wait. So..focus on that and ride out the week.
Victory! I like seeing this here - so we have to be a little creative and strategic about how to make do with what we've got until Friday. We've done it before, we can do it again. And most importantly, by beginning a plan to allow me to offer regular Tarot readings, I may be able to be victorious over this whole shortfall in income that makes it necessary to have broke-weeks far too often.
I feel like this is just reminding me, "Eye on the prize, baby" and to stay positive.
Keeping in mind the limits of my own strength is crucial here - both my mental and intuitive reserves (I want to be careful about not letting myself be drained by reading for more people that I normally do) and my physical reserves. I have arthritis issues that can sometimes make typing painful enough that it effects my ability to read (hard to focus if every word hurts to 'say'). I notice that the weather this weeks includes some thunderstorm predictions and that usually augers more pain than normal. I'll want to remember to balance what it is I want to do with how much energy I have to do it, and adjust accordingly. I want to remember that, like any new project, half the battle is not overdoing things and getting worn out.
And here, a final reminder... what I'm doing right now is preparing for the future - I want to be forward thinking and not worry overmuch about just this week, but in the longterm benefits of the changes and effort I make right now. Things will take time, and right now planning and small steps in the right direction are far more important than their immediate result. The trees that make up the three wands in this image are small and fragile, but already starting to bud. This is going to grow and develop, but I need to give it time.
