Horoscopes ...

Here is mine, for the day;

Slow down Frannie. You are moving too quickly.
The stability you hunger for is right there, with in you, if only you would stop long enough to see it.

Now part of me thinks blah, blah, blah - duh, duh, duh ... It's all inside of me - we are always missing something that is right there if only we would stop and smell the roses. How many times have we heard that?

Of course it is easier to look back on something and realize that the right answer was right there in your grasp ... but isn't that how we become who we are? Take the challenges, turning the wrong way once in a while, occasionally saying out loud what we should have held inside?

Of course I should sit back and relax. Of course I should appreciate more what I have. It doesn't take a horoscope, a spouse, a Dr. or even a shrink to teach me that. My heart tells me that all the time ... its my mind that gets caught up in the chaos that is life.

Ok, enough said ... In the words of Scarlett I can't think about that right now. If I do, I'll go crazy. I'll think about that tomorrow. After all... tomorrow is another day. (to mess up! :O)


4 And I saw that all labor and all achievement spring from man's envy of his neighbor. This too is meaningless, a chasing after the wind.

5 The fool folds his hands and ruins himself.

6 Better one handful with tranquillity than two handfuls with toil
and chasing after the wind.

Ecclesiastes 4

ROTFL... I know that one! I think mine says, "Smoking made you jaxed in the head and now you have to pull yourself out of the hole you dug for yourself by being a ragging witch, even though it felt good and you may have had a point, maybe you took it too far!" In otherwords, maybe I should not blurt out every dang thought I have AND maybe I am going to have to eat some serious crow to get to a healing point in my life! I am not sure if I am ready for that, or if others are receptive but... I suppose I should try

Oh yeah, my mind gets caught up in the chaos of life all the freaking time. It's so hard to slow down and relax because no one else ever speeds up to pick up the slack. The curse of being the all powerful wife and mother.

"but isn't that how we become who we are?"

Yes yes it is.

And sometimes we do just have to pull a Scarlett.
