Tell It Like It Is

Some days you read something that just smacks you across the face and makes you wake up. My horoscope today is a great example.

"You could reach creative heights today, but you'll need to channel your emotions in a positive direction, instead of allowing them to pull you into a swamp of complications. If you try to hold on to an old feeling or a worn-out habit, you'll only get bogged down in the mire. But if you are willing to let go of the past, then anything is possible. The choice is in your hands."

I have recently reconnected with someone from my past and I am allowing all the old hurt to control my emotions. Instead of trying to relax and let things happen, I am trying to force it again. I need to stop. I need to just let it be. We enjoy each other's company so I need to appreciate that. There is no need for me to rush anything but it is my instinct for some reason. It doesn't help that I am really feeling sorry for myself right now. I am letting all the bad things in life get me down instead of being optimistic about what the future might hold. So how do I let go and let the past be the past?

You do it simply by continuing to do what you are doing - realizing it. Best of luck.

Mine today was:

"Everything could look fine on the outside, but you know what they say about judging a book by its cover. Nevertheless, others may not bother to take the time to look beyond your surface appearance today, and this can be upsetting to you as you question the validity of your current relationships. Continue to be yourself and those who matter will ultimately see the true you."

It pretty much rang true today, because I've been DYING for CMC to want to get closer, dig a little deeper...

Wonder why we keep "selling ourselves short" when we know we deserve so much better? Do you think it could be that we're subconsciously punishing ourselves for something?
