Wisdom To Choose

 Sola Busca Tarot ~ 7 of Cups

The wisdom to choose. Ulterior motives, underlying issues. Quick mend, expensive repair. Visual bling, unseen unsung structure. The fun friend whose activities skirt common sense, the companion who isn't much fun. 

At some point in our lives we know where the middle ground is. Life is stuffed with choices and so many we make without any wisdom at all. It felt right to fight to get out of the union, that $162.00 a month could be better off in my pocket. Now that pension is $2000.00 a month less than those who stayed in the plan. Seemed right at the time. 

Renting a station rather than go into a salon that offered continued training because my ego was pumped  at being head hunted. Had I known all the heartache associated with marrying Rob would I have? Probably not, but it is the best decision I ever made. We do the best we can with what we have, but did we learn from those decisions? That is probably the key. 

Today I have to choose, as always, what Rob will cook for dinner. I'd rather not, I'd rather be surprised, everything he makes is good, but he needs a trigger to start with, so I'll choose. Not such a heavy burden. And I'm alive to do it. There is a lot to be said for that.

    1. I think in hindsight we won't be, but it sure feels like it now.

  2. Sometimes we have to do the best with the limited knowledge we have, but when we know more, we can choose more wisely.
    Tell Rob fish or chicken for me. :D

    1. I made a lovely and delicious chicken stew yesterday. Hearty and warm. Used garden canned tomatoes that gave the stes just a bit of Summer sunshine. Yum.

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
