Yesterday I had a client that was so angry, at me, at God, at life. She was screaming the word 'WHY' over and over, before hanging up on me, loudly. Then in traffic, as I went to see a Yorkie I wanted to bring home with me (but didn't, as he looked like a rat and didn't like me at all, I am waiting on the next batch of puppies to be ready to go), I seen a license plate with the letters spelling out 'why'. And before I go to bed, I have a friend call and lament as to 'why' it is so hard to have what you want. I ask the Durer Tarot, why? I drew the Hanged Man, the 10 of Wands, and the 3 of Pentacles. The Hanged man would be the strongest card, as a Major Arcana, and he is yelling 'why' also. Appears to be stuck and cannot help himslelf. But only stuck by a tiny rope wrapped around his ankle. In the 10 of Wands, you see a beautiful home, villa, and behind it is a massive fire, in front of it is a wall of 10 tall sticks like a small fence, appearing to keep someone out.You don't know what to look at first on this card. Like, is it just a brush fire someone has under control, or is it racing toward the home and that little fence would really keep no one out if they really wanted to go to the house. It is a card of distractions. Where do you go first, you cannot choose so you just stand there, and do nothing. And the 3 of Pentacles, this guy has it figured out. He is by himself, he had finished one project, at a time and done a fine artistic job on each. He is leaning on his last masterpiece to help him reach to finish the beautiful chiseled eagle he is working on now. My take on these cards as an answer to the 'why', is we (I) get distracted and let little unimportant things catch our wandering attention. If we were to follow around the carver here, we would see he knows how to focus his intent like a laser and stay with one thing until it is finished and move on 100% to the next goal. No problem. Stop talking and do it. Like Peter walking on the water to Jesus, as long as he was focused on Jesus and his words, he was just fine, but when he noticed the wind and the high waves, he got 'distracted' and down he went. Get rid of the crap you don't want or need, simplify, and stay with one goal at a time.And stop listening to people that don't believe you. Just do it....

Well now, ##NAME##, I'm holding you personally responsible for making me think today. I really wasn't planning on it! I was lurking around Blogspot for stuff on Yorkshire Terrier Rescue and I ended up on your blog. More specifically, on your post ##TITLE##. I figured I could get away with out thinking at all today, but along comes your post! Can't say I agree wholeheartedly, but against all odds you got me thinking! Thanks for the wake-up call ;o) .
