Remember these nerds?
They’ve been coming up constantly for me. No matter how well I clear the deck’s energy, no matter how I shuffle, or how many times, it’s Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fortune, Wheel of Fortune.
Now, I don’t necessarily view this as a bad thing. The Wheel is a reminder that everything has its season — time for increase, and time for decrease. Times to reap, and times to sow. It can be an intimidating reminder, sure, if you are at a point where “What goes around, comes around” feels like a daunting prospect. It reminds you to jump on the opportunities life throws your way. It’s also a reminder that you get out what you put in to things.
I’m trying to keep the last part in mind. It’s tough now, when I’m trying to balance improving my independence with what I am physically and mentally capable of taking on — at the same time that I’m getting stronger, I’m also going out more and doing more things. I will only receive the measure of what I put in to things, but I am still getting used to begin able to put much in at all. I have days when my disability smacks me in the face (or right at the base of my skull, as it were), so there are times when I’ve got stuff to do and a stark reminder of my diminished capacity at the same time.
It seems like these are important things for me to focus on — the turning of the Wheel, getting out what you put in, seizing the opportunities life presents to you.
Audentes Fortuna iuvat.
