Day before Dark Moon
Neptune Retrograde
Pluto Retrograde
Sunny and lovely

Yesterday was busy. Grocery shopping and getting the food for the next couple of weeks sorted out for my mom’s trip. Lunch with a friend at a gorgeous place on the beach in Falmouth — great food, great company — always a wonderful way to spend the day. Worked flat out with my students until nearly midnight. Didn’t get things resolved with the client and it’s disturbing me out of proportion.

Had a bad night, woke up feeling like crap this morning. Made myself go to yoga anyway, and was glad I did. Chatham Beach was magnificent, we had about 50 people in class on that wonderful expanse of beach, and the teacher reads the class perfectly, creating sequences that fix whatever ails us that day! I am incredibly grateful to have found the class.

Got to take lots of garbage to the dump — probably have to make 2-3 trips, work with my students, take my mom to the doctor, do stuff for the Mermaid Ball, and get things resolved with the client. I am willing to walk away from this job if that’s what it takes. The client misinterprets flexibility and compassion for weakness, and doesn’t respect that I have a life, much less a career, outside of what this client wants (and the wants change from moment to moment). The client needs an on-call staff person, and I’m not it.

Figuring out how to use the anger and the annoyance at the lack of respect and turn it into creative energy. There’s a book in here somewhere,whether it’s a parallel story about a modern person’s buttons pushed because of something that happened in a previous life or something a little more straightforward. I don’t know what it is, but the lemons of this experience will wind up as lemonade somewhere down the line.

Onward.

  1. I hope that sorts out for you soon, Devon. It’s stressful even if you’re ready to walk away. I think what grates on me is I place my trust in my clients and I’m still surprised when one or two of them abuse that trust.

    Amen for yoga. It’s so wonderful for helping to create and maintain that balance in your life. Enjoy every secon d of it. 🙂

  2. Why is it most people always see compassion as a weakness and take advantage of it?
    I’m so glad your Yoga class and teacher are helping you.
    Blessings!
