Although it’s not quite your time of year yet, you can already feel the excitement. Instead of seeing obstacles, you see possibilities. Rather than thinking about the hard work ahead, you are visualizing your destination as if you have already arrived. However, there is a little problem: your current tendency to avoid the more challenging aspects of what’s happening can quickly land you in a heap of trouble. Prevent problems by slowing down and thinking before you act.
If I had to pick one, I’d say that late Spring is my time of year. It’s when (typically) I get the most done and I’m excited about the possibilities of the summer and fall. By the time summer is in full swing I’m sick of the gross heat and while I get a little bit of a second wind for the sheer beauty of fall, that’s a crazy time of year for me getting ready for the holidays.
I have some things on my radar right now that I’m looking at in a very optimistic light and am hopeful come to fruition – but that I don’t want to talk about just yet because if I do, it won’t happen. I also know that to make them happen, I have to jump through some hoops spin around to just the right degree and do a cartwheel. This all has to happen on a full moon.
And that part about slowing down? Pshaw. Likely not going to happen. I’ll think as I go and try it, but I’m not a slow down kind of person…

You may not be able to justify playing with your friends today, even after your workday is over. You could have such a large backlog of obligations now that you don’t feel finished even after you complete several items on your checklist. However, feeling guilty doesn’t serve any real purpose, nor does endlessly explaining your actions to anyone else. Just do as much as humanly possible and then reward yourself by letting go of any lingering concerns that prevent you from enjoying the present moment.
I have so much to do it’s paralyzing me and life isn’t a whole lot of fun at the moment. Sometimes I wonder why I take vacations because I have SO much to do to get ready for them it’s not even funny. Even if I complete what I have to do for today, I have stuff that didn’t get done last week or over the weekend and I just have to keep plugging on…
This feeling isn’t a good one. I’m a giant ball of stress and while I’m “managing” it, I hate feeling this way. It will get better because I’ll end up going through the list and cutting things that don’t need to happen, but in the mean time…well I’ll just try not to cry.
Because they’re “right” I feel like I’m on the right path for whatever Life has in store for me. Or maybe I’m just justifying it in my own mind so that I don’t completely go nuts.
Do you ever look at your horoscope and think that it’s dead on? Is that someone telling you you’re on the right path or just coincidence?
