#affirmations Some days there are just too many foxes in my world. Do you ever have this problem?

I get an idea of what I want to write about but I’m not sure of the direction. Today’s thought was dissatisfaction.

A rather unusual thought for me since I am a professional joy seeker. But still, that’s the word I had so I went with it.

I’ve had a lot of stress-inducing situations in the past two weeks–nearly all of them out of my hands.

  • Someone’s health
  • Foundation of a building
  • Foundation of a company
  • A loved one’s very hard battle

Nothing that I could point a finger at to merrily say, “Seek joy, y’all.”

In fact, I think if someone had reminded me of that, I might have just cracked. Yep…stress.

So when I pulled this Knight of Wands from my Shadowscapes Tarot app, I snickered. Then I giggled. Then I guffawed.

Because this, my darlings, this is the perfect expression of what I am feeling.

So much to do…so many foxes to direct. I see each fox as a thing that I might do. A project that needs attention.

And there I am straddling a lionzelle (my word for this gorgeous lionesque creature with gazelle horns.) The beast is ready to go, but I have not yet leaned forward. I have not yet committed to the events underfoot.

I can so see this as the root of my dissatisfaction. No action has been taken but there is a clarion call to action taking place.
The problem, as I see it, is too many foxes. Which one of the five is it to be? Once I figure that out, I think this general ennui will dissipate.

Perhaps this niggling, just out of reach itch of need is my clue that I just need to move. I need to pick one and go with it. Those other foxes?

Well there’s good news and there’s bad news.

They will always be there.

What? That’s the good news AND the bad news.

So how about you? What projects are calling to you? What do you need to move on? Is it a time of action or of rest for you?

Today’s affirmation:

I choose to take action. I am responsible for my own happiness. I make time to create. I open myself up to the infinite possibilities of joy. Seeking joy is my way of life. Loved and loving, I love each of you. Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on!

  1. I found this very interesting because just recently I have been pondering and writing/talking about the subject of rest (in a sort of surrendering sense) and have found out some very interesting things. In particular that it’s very rarely promoted or even discussed, except in a negative way, so I am interested that you suggest this might be a time of rest. I personally have been doing that this month but am hoping September will be a more active time for me. Having said that I will endeavour not to deal with all the foxes at once!

  2. Interesting post… Too many foxes. I saw too last week. One stopped and stared at me with a friendly look.
    The other appeared while I was making an evening primrose flower essence in my back garden.
    As you say, lots of distractions and not enough real action.
    I’ll give some thought to where my focus can be.
    Hope your life settles soon, you have so much going on!

    1. Oh how fun that is, Rosemary. Have you seen the internet video of a fox playing with a dog’s toy? The dog is watching from the window and not happy at all. ๐Ÿ˜€
