Because it is a card of necessarily fast action. Things coming at me rapid fire. Generally this happens when I’m tired.
Hmm. Do you think there’s a correlation to things coming at me seemingly too fast when I’m tired?
But look at the wands themselves. All but one of them sports greenery. They are all active and alive and growing. These are things that need to be addressed so I might as well tackle them.
The postitioning of the wands generally make me think, “INCOMING!” Instead of ducking and …napping, I need to have a clear head so I can just get things done. This card, for me, is required multi-tasking.
And I am tired today. I also have a lot to get done. I stayed up far too late the other night and only got four hours of sleep. Last night I was in bed by 9 and asleep before 10. Then back up at 6.
I should have been back up at 5, grin.
Still, if I’ve learned anything in this life, I’ve learned how to multi-task.
Leonie Dawson’s workbook+planner encourages me to write down my three most important things for each day. Yesterday’s were “Stay awake.” “Seek joy.” “Go to bed early.”
What will your three most important tasks be today? Can you commit to one of them being “Seek joy?”
180 seconds is all I’m asking of you at first. Then start adding 60 seconds at a time until your day is filled with an attitude of gratitude for seeking joy in everything.
