I Can’t Stand Them…I Think

WW29_1Today’s card is from a oracle deck. The artwork is simply gorgeous. Here are two representatives of the Corn Fairies from the Woodland Wisdom Oracle deck from U.S. Games. They stare at each other over wheat and poppies. I love how their pendants are showing a magnetic attraction even though their posture may look slightly defiant.

Have you ever met someone you instantly liked? What about someone you instantly disliked?

Me, too.

But what about someone you instantly liked then found out you actually did not like them? Or vice versa?

For me, that’s harder. That happened this weekend. I met someone whom I thought was just a delight but as I got to watch them in action, I found out I felt otherwise.

The key thing that made me decide to not want to get closer?


They were a mean person. They said things that just came across so meanly it made me gape at them.

I’m not sure why people have a need to be that mean. It wasn’t as if anyone was threatening this person. They were in a large group of very welcoming folk. But they were mean.

I’d like to say it was because of the alcohol but it wasn’t. They were mean with or without booze.

And I can’t figure out why.

But, smile, I don’t have to figure out why they chose to be mean. I simply chose to associate with others in the group who were not mean. We had a lot of new folks at the gathering which was a joy to me. I love meeting new people. And of course hanging with the folks I do know but don’t get to see? BONUS!

So what about you? Have you ever met someone you liked then disliked or disliked then liked? What was it about them that caused you to make that change?

Oh, I’m not talking about romantic interests here. Just people you thought of one way then had to change your mind.

Seek joy, y’all. Pass it on.
