Daily Draw: Ostara Tarot ~ 10 of Wands

Stress. Never thought of this card as that conclusion although it speaks of overwork, overburden, overtired, sadness and neglect,  much of it self-directed.

I'm reminded by this card, the problem is there is no line in the sand, no whistle that goes off, before we go too far. We can't tell a boss if I do this project I'll get too tired. Can't tell our family we need a break from them. Can't tell the bank we need some breathing room.

On the other hand stress can be a good thing, the adrenaline that gets our mind/heart/feet moving thereby bringing us back to balance.

Epilogue: I wanted to write about dolphins and elephants and extinction. But I'd start my day stressed and I'm not going there. My long years of depression are over. I'd not self-direct myself back.
