Deliberate Draw: Five of Cups
Book: Keen disappointment and regret when we realizing something is slipping away
Guidance: Let go of things that are not working out, be gentle with yourself, beyond this place lies new hope
I was feeling really unappreciative of what I have today. I have plenty of work to keep me busy and I know that I need to proceed slowly and not get in over my head, but I'm busy thinking about all the projects we have that don't have OCM on them. I was focusing on what I don't have and how our organization doesn't really support what I do. I feel as if it is me continuing to fight uphill and that's a really frustrating place to be in. However, what I should focus on is that I get the opportunity to go in and do something that is mostly fun everyday and I get paid a whole lot of money to do it.
A lot of the problem is that I'm not happy with doing the same thing over and over and over and I don't really feel as if what I do makes a difference in the world. I want to make a difference and I want to change people's lives and I don't do that now. All I do is help company's make more money and that's not a lot of fun. However, the job that I have is teaching me skills that I will need to move into a role I want which is in culture and diversity. I have to work to change my mindset from focusing on what I don't have to focusing on what I do have. Sometimes that's hard to do and I get caught up in loss and forget to feel gratitude for what I have.
At the heart of it, this card is about being grateful for the blessings in our lives. There is always loss in our lives, but if we are able to open our hearts and be grateful for what we have, life will flow much better and we will be much more able to appreciate the good stuff that we have.
I love the line "beyond this place lies new hope." That is such a wonderful reminder to let go of what we can no longer have and be ready to embrace the new. I've learned that to embrace the new, I have to mourn what I'm letting go of. Sometimes we think we can just let go of things, but it is important to have the mourning period that helps us to let go.
