The Struggles & Solutions To Relax

I struggle with being a workaholic. I get involved in something and become so focused that I lose track of time, and ignore other things that need to get done. Like having lunch or going to bed.

I start working on a task and find myself hours later, sometimes into the very wee hours of the morning still working on it. It’s stressful. It affects your health when you do it day after day. And it’s simply not good for you.

But if I had a problem with a project, I’ve been known to get so focused that I can’t think of anything else until it’s resolved.

Today’s Tarot Meditation Drawing: Three of Wands – Inverted

Three Of Wands - Inverted

Mystic Faery Tarot by Linda Ravenscroft

It’s ok to be unconventional. Some of the best ideas come from being upside down and a little different. Don’t let others push you into being what they want or think you should be. Live true to your own inner instincts, respect all things around you; including yourself, and allow your inspiration to flow and brighten the world.

 


Additional Insight:

Just because others are afraid to be a little different, doesn’t mean you have to live through their fear. In today’s competitive world looking at the world with a different perspective can help to think outside the box. Utilize your own intuition to inspire new solutions and exciting concepts.  Use your unconditional perspectives to imagine new innovations that others have never conceived. Be yourself! And others will come to appreciate your different perspectives.
