Better Than Good

Daily Draw: Shaman's Oracle ~ Spirit of Initiation

There are many firsts in life; birth, first day of school, first day driving, first day on the job, first day dead...

I'm reminded by this card first days are stressful, often we end up in overload and full of fear. But first days are also a chance to be enlightened and transformed. If we think we are already good enough, then isn't an opportunity to be better than good worth the effort?

"You're very hardy to have made it this far the first day. Has anyone said what we try to learn in here?"
Alanna said the first thing that came to her lips. "The only thing I know is that I jump when I'm told to and I have no free time." ~  Tamora Pierce 1958-

  1. First day at school was amazing! First day at new school 3 years later and 800 kilometers away less amazing.
    First days are generally a lot cooler then last days :-D Except if it is last days of winter...
    Or like for me now - last days on sleeping meds. (which sucks right now but will be amazing in a week or so)

  2. yeah, first time of anything is always hardest, the psychological barrier of it alone makes it that, but often indeed necessary.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
