Daily Draw April 5th, 2012
I got up bursting with exuberance and joy, ready to tackle something new. Some books I ordered came, I spent $35 extra with money from my Dad buying two books on art and nature journalling. The spouse went into a big sulk and left the room and refused to talk, leaving me there to open the book box alone, feeling worthless and empty and terribly hurt. He apologized 1.5 hours later but I felt blank, betrayed, all the joy wrenched from the day and my happy plans for the upcoming 4-day weekend,.
So, I thought I’d draw one card from the “Don’t Take Anything Personally” section from The Four Agreements Deck.
LOVE AND RESPECT YOURSELF
“You are never responsible for the actions of others. But you are responsible for you. If someone is not treating you with love and respect, it is a gift if they walk away from you. You may hurt for a while, but your heart will eventually heal.”
Time for a hot tea and a read of a nice book.
