What Are Your Signs?

TarotofDreams_4SwordsToday’s card reminds me of a phenomenon that often happens when I read for multiple people. Tuesday night I worked a launch party for a liquor brand. They had a Ghosts & Devils theme so we were asked to dress up as Romany aka gipsy readers.

Over and over, I saw the same cards but the one that showed up the most was the Four of Swords. Seemed that a lot of the people in front of me were burning the candle at both ends. Of course they were all young enough to look slightly abashed when I told them the year I started reading. Most of them hadn’t even been born yet.

But, as always, that card had meaning for me as well. I had gotten up at 5am then worked a full 8 hours to come home just in time to pack and shower for this gig. Then I was there from 7:30 until 11:30. I did not get up from my table from 7:45 until 11:15. Kid you not.

I finally had to disappoint a few folk but just declaring that I was cooked. I got home in time to say hello to Wednesday as I fell into bed about 12:30.

Then I was back up at 5 to work again. Now it is 8:30pm as I write this. I’m posting this then guess what I’m going to do? Yep, you betcha! Bedtime. Maybe a tangle but bed is the most important thing on my agenda right now.

For your 180 second challenge today, what are your warning signs that you are overloading your system? How do you know when you need to schedule a serious time out?

Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on!

  1. Let’s see, warning signs include extreme creativity, bizarrely enough. When running on too little sleep, I start coming up with ideas, and get so enthused that then I can’t sleep even when given the opportunity – it’s a Catch 22. Yet I also know that unless I get some sleep, I’m not going to give those ideas my best energy. Normally doesn’t last more than a day, anyway… Hope you slept well!
