Clouds in my coffee
This rain is lovely, but I'm having a bit of difficulty enjoying it.

Something is seriously wrong with my head. I wish I could take it out and send it to a spa for some good relaxation therapy. Maybe I just need a life coach. Anyone want to experiment on my head? I understand it's a fertile playground, but I'm just not connecting with it right now.

Nutshell? I feel challenged at work (not always in the fun sort of way), but not in the rest of my life. And I am refusing to let work be most of my life (again). I just don't know what to do to make things feel worthwhile.

I'm stuck! I need to unstick me!

May I ask where you feel you are spiritually? I've been listening to you, and that's the one thing I haven't heard you speak much about, to my recollection. Could it be that not grounding yourself properly is allowing others to chink away at you?

Currently plodding through "dark night of the soul." Trying to ride it out, but I agree with you that this clue is probably at the core of everything. Not sure what to do.

May I suggest a retreat then. A cleansing, a look at where you've been to get you here, meditation, a look to the path you're on, and the path you *think* you're on - and the difference between the two, a plan(or just a intention) to where you go from here, and a calling to that which guides you.

It may just be as simple as calling elements and making a talisman.

I need to rid myself of the daemon that tells me "if you don't try, you won't fail"

That's the biggest lie I ever heard. Do not listen to whatever is whispering that in your ear. Not trying IS failing. A more truthful thing to keep in mind is that there is no success without first accumulating some failure.

Also, when I feel completely stuck, I shake my life up a bit and just watch to see where things fall. Do things as different from your normal routines and preferences as you can. If you listen to music while you work, try silence. You're a morning person, try staying up as late as possible for a few days. If you have a favorite routine before or after work, change it up as thoroughly as you can. Have a favorite beverage or snack, eliminate it from your diet for a week. I think of it as doing some things to step out of the comfortable ruts I've worn in my path. There's really nothing radical there and it sometimes makes me a little cranky at first, but it's just enough of a change to allow me to see some familiar things from a different perspective, and I'm always in awe over what I discover about my life during those times.

ugh, that's been a powerfully bad thing for me historically. Those whisperings have brought me nothing but misery and sorrow. Go back! This way lies madness! Hit the reset button! Go to your last save point!
