Inner Journey: FOLLOW THROUGH ON YOUR COMMITMENTS
“Our high resolves look down on our slumbering acts.”
— L.E. Landon
How do you put things off, make excuses, or let anyone or anything get in the way of your commitments?
What are you saying to yourself and your subconscious mind (which records all of your patterns) when you do not complete what is important to you?
Pick a task or new habit to which you will re-commit. Show yourself and your inner programming that you CAN complete and that you are serious about what you say.
“Nothing is so fatiguing as the eternal hanging on of anuncompleted task.”
— William James
“Procrastination is the thief of time.”

A Note from the Universe
If you ever find yourself driving down that motorway of life looking for an exit that says EASY STREET, may I remind you that that’s where you got on, following a sign that said PARADISE, THIS WAY. ROAD UNDER CONSTRUCTION. WATCH OUT FOR “LIGHT WORKERS,” FALLING DEBRIS, POTHOLES, AND SLIPPERY PATCHES. NO TURNING BACK.
And you said, “Cool.”

“To choose is also to begin.”
That’s it. The first step is always to make a choice. Pick one, whether it’s a color, or a flavor, or a career, or a path. And go for it. That’s not to say that we can’t pick again. We can always choose again. But we’ve got to start somewhere

Daily Tarot: The Fool
This is one of those days when everything is up in the air and you doubt that you could do much even if you tried. Nonetheless, things can go well when some unexpected good luck comes your way. Your carefree attitude can attract some unexpected help to keep you going and to make things interesting if not fun. Uncertainty can be inspiring in its own way.
