Discovery

Happy beginning of the week to everyone! Is it just me, or does it already feel like fall is here? My second favorite time of the year...the season for all things pumpkin and Halloween! I was cleaning up the yard this weekend, and realized the squirrels and I are in a tomato battle. What is a tomato battle you ask? Squirrels are stealing my tomatoes and eating parts and letting the other half eaten remains on my deck. Passive aggressive little twerps. Squirrels 2, Me 0.

It's that time again for the Flower Fairy Card of the Week...Discovery! Every day is a new adventure if you choose to explore. Oh what fun! I'm embarking on a new adventure this week. Of course, I'm always told I'm up to something, even when I'm being totally innocent tehehe! Starting on Thursday, I'm beginning a two year internship, and for some reason, which is totally uncharacteristic of me, I am dreading it. Hmmm...I've thought about all the ways I can avoid it, things I'm sure I won't like, things I'd rather be doing, potential escape routes, and STOP!!!! Why am I doing that to myself? Because it's going to be emotional work, and it's just what I need, but it's easier to think of the negatives rather than focus on the positives. I can therapeutisize (my word) myself all day really well, and I'm just shaking my head at myself. It's like seriously, get over yourself, you're going to go, and you're going to like it (ooh does that sound like the parentals or what?!?). Am I the only one that does this? I look at all the other adventures I've embarked on over the past two decades...ministry training...meditation classes...yoga teacher training without ever taking a yoga class yet to boot! And the kicker--they all changed my life for the better, and I loved them! Yes, there was the whole shifting process that has the potential to be (and was) challenging, but man, the outcome on the other side of it is tremendous. Ha, and I've already told those close to me with all the work that I'll be doing, I should come out of it pretty close to perfect. Or I'm going to be running for the hills to escape. I'm laughing and rolling my eyes since my pep talk doesn't seem to be doing much for me today. Two more days to get myself pumped and ready, because it will be a great discovery! New opportunities, new learning, new friends, and new experiences. Enjoy your own discovering! And have a great week!
