Lost Hope


Howl And Let It Go

What Do You Do?

What do you do when you’ve reached the point of despair, no hope and all pride is lost? The news media prefers to cover sensationalized stories instead of actual news. So they don’t realize how many people around the world are still struggling and sliding backward without employment.

But whether or not the news covers the economy or not, doesn’t make it any less painful for families who are suffering and trying to make ends meet. And most, don’t even come close. They are losing hope, if they have any left at all. The pride they once had in themselves was given up a long time ago when they had to start asking for help. It dwindled away even more when they started asking for hand-outs.

Here in the States, it evaporated completely when they were told they don’t qualify for welfare or food stamps because of this reason or that. You might be surprised how many middle-class families who lost their jobs and are still struggling to find work don’t qualify for social assistance. It’s staggering. Here in Virginia, if you own a home, you will not qualify for aid. No matter how bad your situation, it seems many simply aren’t bad off enough and they’re punished for it.

I receive emails from families, single moms or dads and each one is heart wrenching. Each one has their own tale of struggle, looking for work and not finding any. Either they’re over qualified, or they’ve been out of work for so long their skill set is out dated. Or so they’re told. I can relate. Add to that people who have worked their entire lives who have crossed that 50 mark, and their age plays into the mix as well. Continue reading

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: The Chariot

The Chariot

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

Searching for balance may lead you in an unexpected direction. It’s time to decide if what you want is really what you need. Perhaps it’s time to let go of the things that have let you down and move forward to the things that will fulfill your own mission.

Additional Insight:

Nothing in life is merely black or white. Look at your path with balance, not ego. Real life is filled with a lot of gray areas that impact the road before you. It’s not as simple as taking this road in order to build that road.

The path you take has many projects that need your attention along the way. Each one will build upon the other and pave the road before you. If you skip activities along the way your path will be fraught with an uneven surface, pot holes and crossed lines. And you may even lose some of the precious cargo you’re carrying with you.

Tunnel vision is never a good thing in life. Not only will you lose those you care about most, you’ll also miss out on the beauty of the world that exists all around you. Stop ignoring everything else and bring balance back into your life.

If you’re in a partnership, remember it takes both of you to make things work. Putting on blinders undermines your partners contribution and shows you don’t respect their opinion or ideas. If your ideas are faltering, then perhaps it’s time to listen to the one person who has your best interest at heart. The balance of energy from both of you will rebuild broken ties that have held you together and balance not only your energy, but it will empower and strengthen the path you tread together for success.
