Hey Readers, I’m home today because I’m feeling under the weather, a nasty virus has hit our workplace, (sinuses and head feel like they’re going to explode) and I needed to take the day to rest and relax both physically and mentally.
I know there’s some people who don’t believe in astrology, or how eclipses can affect them, but I am not one of those people. On March the 8th there was a solar eclipse and what that means is the moon “blocked” the sun. This particular eclipse was visible across an area of the Pacific Ocean. The eclipse started in Indonesia and if you get a chance to check it out on-line do so because it’s pretty cool! Sorry to ramble, let me get back to my point…right now I feel like I’m working REALLY hard and yet my life is remaining stagnant. I feel like I’m putting in MAXIMUM effort and not getting any results. It’s frustrating to say the least and sometimes it feels like the world we live in is just a treadmill that we can never really get off of…it’s exhausting and I’m not sure if it’s the pace of things today or because we are constantly “plugged in” but I’m definitely feeling it. There’s all this talk that solar eclipses bring new beginnings but where the heck is it? Did I miss the day? Was I somewhere else when all of this was happening? Because as of right now my life is exactly the same. That’s how I feel and it’s hard when you think that you’re taking all of the right steps to improve or change certain things and nothing comes to be. Have you ever felt as though your hard work was going unnoticed? Or that you’ve wanted something for SO long and have taken steps to get it but NOTHING is happening?! We’ve all been there at one point or another in our lives, it’s part of being human and living on planet earth.
There is good news though-you can change your way of thinking and make the most of this seemingly boring time. This feeling has taught me that maybe I’m supposed to be exactly where I am in life at this exact moment and that it’s not up to me to know “why”. It’s teaching me to stop trying to control everything and to not force circumstances beyond my control into a neat little box.It’s teaching me that things will happen when they are supposed to and it’s not up to me to know or control the “when”. My life being “stagnant” right now means that maybe it’s the tiniest bit successful in terms of being able to juggle so many things at once and that it’s the pauses in between where things begin to unfold. As humans we don’t really like the middle of things unless it’s Oreos. We like a beginning of a project and the end of a project but we rarely enjoy the middle where the work is actually being done and where we have to roll up our sleeves and get dirty. I suppose what I’m trying to say is, if life seems stagnant right now, take the opportunity to enjoy it. You’ve put in the hard work and the long hours and what you’ve been working towards will soon be rewarded. You will reap what you sow. That’s the crazy thing about time…it is never stagnant and before you know it, you might be wishing you were right back in the middle.
