Making mundane moments magical 

One of the biggest things I want you to know is that no one is perfect. We all have days when we feel crappy, we all doubt our own abilities and often find ourselves overwhelmed or disheartened by our inability to live up to own expectations. 

Come with me and together we walk the path of learning and growing, discovering how to work with and  honour the internal struggle we all experience as we try to balance the many shades of our emotional lives, and find our own peace and connection internally and externally.

<p>Today’s card is from my Saltwater reading cards - Jelly fish. Jelly fish reminds us how important it is to be transparent in our actions and words. When jellyfish show up you can expect a little bit of a sting as you start to see clearly others motives and the truth of situations you may of taken at face value. You will also be made aware that your own  actions, motivations and thoughts are also clear to those around you. This can sometimes be painful and confronting,  especially if we like to be seen in a certain light or attempt to hide the shadow sides of our own personality. The best advice is to be honest about what you want right now. Speak truthfully and honestly and take note of not only other people manipulative behaviour, but be mindful of your own ability to control situations.  What do you want? <br/>
Have you been clear about that? <br/>
Are you or others attempting to emotionally manipulate a situation? <br/>
Do your words match your actions? <br/>
Everything is about to get very transparent so be sure to act with integrity and truthfulness.</p>

<p>I remember that night I birthed you many years ago now, I was so scared, so totally unprepared and vulnerable. I had no idea what birth would be like let alone what raising a child and being called mumma would entail. <br/>
Still,  21 years on, I feel like I fail and flounder  the majority of the time as your parent and care giver.  And yet I have had the privilege of watching this articulate, strong, determined, passionate, quirky, intelligent,breathtakingly beautiful young woman grow from the chaos that was our life and I feel so damn privileged and blessed. <br/>
The moment I first held your tiny little body in my arms I saw this tiny, perfect little being who I just knew instinctively would grow up to set the world on fire with your colourful heart so full of love, your eyes that always search for the beauty and your brilliant mind that never ever rests. Well the world is yours now. I cannot wait to see what mark  you will carve into it. <br/>
Happy birthday Trevellyn. Wishing you every happiness  and blessing the world has in store for you. @merylstreeq</p>

<p>Card for today is NIGHT SKY - soul journey<br/>
This card reminds us that like the night sky, our journey in this life time is vast and unfathomable in it’s entirety. The night sky is like a map showing us where we have come from and the many directions we can take in the future. The night sky links us to our ancestors, both those who have come before us and those who are still to come and holds within it’s tiny stars a star map to our own souls  lifetimes so to speak.  If your feeling lost or unsure what direction to take in your life, take a moment to stand outside in the dark of night and gaze up to the stars and listen to what your soul has to tell you. Taking an interest in the ancient stories connected to the different star constellations that are visible around you will also help you connect with ancient knowledge and wisdoms which is like food for the soul. #dreamtimereadingcards #oracledecks #carddecks #oraclereading #nightsky #stars #constellations #southerncrossstation #Australian #Aboriginalart</p>

<p>Today I stepped outside my comfort zone and went to a workshop being offered in Coffs Harbour by their local innovation hub. It was a Ideation workshop and it not only gave me a chance to meet an entire room full of strangers( I know I am still anxious  just writing that) but it also helped me clarify my way forward with my current business, well it helped me work out I will actually need to have two very distinctive business models one for MBS and one for my governance and leadership stuff.<br/>
So all in all a rather successful day.<br/>
On a personal level I think after today I need to challenge myself more on the area of networking and meeting new people so tomorrow I am going to a local business woman meet up as well. Look at me adulting and stuff.</p>
