Sometimes, following your desire sucks.
When asked about why we start our own businesses or what our dream life looks like, we’ll often say: “I want to be able to make my own choices!” or “I want to have options and be able to follow my passions!”, right?
When we say these things, when we crave this life of opportunity, we are forgetting that part of the process of choosing is the act of letting go, saying no, and closing doors. When we choose one thing, we are rejecting others and that can be painful.
March is a culling.
This month, the cards are finding us stuck in the resentment we feel when we face the reality that we actually have to CHOOSE something over something else… and it sucks. It just sucks. We want to grow our business and grow our family. We want to launch new offers and we want to rest. We want to go two totally different directions in our business, but there are only so many hours in a day, in a week, in a month, and we have to choose. And, in choosing, in prioritizing, we might lose something we like. We might lose something we love.
March is a month of tension between the grief of choice and the joy of stepping into the life we truly desire. It is acknowledging both the pain and the excitement of prioritizing what we want and what we need. This month, the cards are clear in asking us to be real about what we want to DO, not how we want to be SEEN, and move forward from there.
