It seems a lot of people are going through all kinds of challenges. They’re insanely burdened. Others are pissed off and still others are afraid or depressed.
It seems 80% of people fall into one of these groups at this time. It doesn’t seem too good, does it?
I’m not sure what, if anything, can be done about this. But I do know of some people who are bucking the odds.
One of them is in his early 20’s. He’s got high hopes for his career and the wife and the family he plans to have in the future. He’s got opportunities and he’s consumed with making each of them pay. He doesn’t turn his nose up at anyone for any reason. It’s like he understands, inherently, that help can come from anywhere.
This doesn’t mean he’s flawless. He’s got all kinds of problems to solve. For example, he’s over-confident. Recently he failed an important test that he’d told everyone that he had passed. Oops!
He had to decide how he was going to handle this. Should he cop? Or finesse?
I told him, what he should do didn’t matter because what he was going to do was, finnesse. “That’ll probably be okay, so long as you learn something from this. Quit putting yourself in these situations where you have to tap dance and you risk being extremely humiliated…”
What I like about this story, and this man, is this is a person who is not letting life get him down. He would really like to sail to top. But when he sees this is not going to be possible, he straps on the pack and humpin’ up the hill.
I think this is a good story for “now”. I think a fair number of people think the election going one way or the other, is going to help them or get them out of their fix. Or they hope. I don’t see this as being a good bet. Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump is going to help me? Solve all my problems?
Are there others out there, who still have hopes and dreams and are working towards them? If so, I think this is a good feeling right now, with Saturn in Sagittarius. You want a certain carrot, go get it.
This is true if you need a job, a friend, a partner…seriously. If you’ll tune out distractions, you may be surprised how well you do. Whatever is blocking you, think about hopping over that barrier and do it today.
