“A soul mates purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life.” – Elizabeth Gilbert
ugh, that is such a bunch of crap.
There was a time when I could have absolutely agreed, but really? Soulmates are supposed to be a part of you, not force you to transform yourself by making you feel out of control and desperate.
Stupid. So stupid.
Girls Night is tomorrow night, and last night Jessica and I went shopping. We both decided that we have NO idea how Kimberly does such an amazing job every time, because getting stuff together and being creative is WORK. Finding time to prepare everything is even more work, and so I hope that when tomorrow night rolls around, everyone will be so excited and energized that my entire week will just melt away and be in the past. It’s been awhile since we’ve had a night for us, and it will be SO good to see their faces:) My old apartment was small, and I rarely had lots of people over at once, so this is going to be extra fun for me.
I love that the clouds are rolling in and staying for awhile. I enjoy the summer, and I definitely enjoy the sun, but nothing compares to crisp days and sweaters. Fall is truly the best season of them all, and I’m happy that it’s just around the corner. I think I am going to treat myself to ‘back to school’ shopping this year, because I deserve it, and because I can actually afford it this time.
Speaking of fall, I decided on my next tattoo:)
Fall leaves around my Space Needle. I’m not sure if I’ll actually do color, or just have outlines, but it’s a perfect way to finish that piece on my back. Seattle in the fall:) Definitely worth a little more pain.
Even with my revelation last week, my heart sits perfectly. It’s hard to believe that I once doubted myself, and that I held myself to any expectations that weren’t my very own. Hard to believe, but true.
ugh. That stupid quote has me all irritated.
My horoscope for this week:
Being overly goal-oriented will kill your buzz this week, and it doesn’t actually do much for progress, either. You are the zodiac’s visionary, and your gaze is always cast towards the future. Trouble is, Sagittarius, you’ve been overlooking the obvious and missing the joy of the present moment. Stop forcing that agenda of yours. For all you know right now, it might not even be the best plan for you. More time is warranted to allow developments to unfold organically. You can’t rush the process. Fortunately, slowing down won’t be so challenging. On August 20, Mercury turns retrograde in your house of ambitions, sitting you down in the cosmic Time Out chair for three weeks. You haven’t made much time for celebrations this summer. Even the ones you DID attend seemed to have a dual agenda that made it hard for you to fully relax. You’re finally ready to get your party on, completely surrender to the joy of socializing, and engage in activities “just for the fun of it.” The bonus? Laughter and playtime loosen up the stuck energy in your life and literally shift your entire being. You may begin magnetizing your desires with little to no effort once you get back into this blissed-out mind state.
Thank you stars:)
