A Spoon And A Ship

I Ching Tarot ~ Hexagram 53

Wind over Mountain, no pressure, just steady breeze at our back. One bite at a time, a dragon can be devoured with a spoon. Not that I would, I love dragons. But the concept, it is a good one, tried and true. 

I changed my life 20 years ago, 15 minutes a day, over the course of 9 months. My environment, which turned into a mental wake-up call, which turned into good stewardship as opposed to no ship at all. 

I'm an all or nothing person which can be both blessing and curse. If I join something I take part, not lurk. The drawback to that commitment gene is I also avoid a lot of things other people enjoy just because I can't or won't make that personal commitment. I guess our personality is our Wind, the Mountain is our life. We can hang about the shoulders dabbling, or we can edge around ever higher, or we can shoot for straight up, get it over with, and enjoy the slide down the other side. I think life is all three, I'm paddling my ship with my trusty spoon.

  1. Life is truly a grand adventure. So many choices and options for so many different types of people.

  2. You're like my son Everett, who when he makes a decision, he doesn't dillydally around. He's going vegetarian as a teenager? He sticks with it. Even his favourites -- like marshmallows -- are never again purchased or consumed. He cannot understand how people like me don't have the self-discipline to quit cold turkey. I admire you folks. -Kate

  3. I have no will power at all. If I did, my weight wouldn't be a lifelong struggle :)
    But in other areas, yes, I can self discipline. Usually by shouting at myself, what are you, 8 years old?

  4. I'm choosy about my commitments, but when I do, I'm all in.
