Dec 4 – Two of Pentacles – Juggle, Not Struggle

On the fourth day of December, the tarot advent calendar said to me …

You’ve got plenty of time to sort out what you need to, if you pace it right.


In 24 hours, I have my final dentist appointment of the year. Then back to work.

I have a chalkboard full of to-dos for work and home that I wanted to achieve during PTO.

I erased a lot, which is great. But there’s still a lot on the list.

I think about the remaining items and wonder, if not now, when? When it’s back to up at the crack o’ me, no lunch breaks other than turning off Teams for a half-hour and having to shop, cook and clean in the evening hours, when can I do the rest?

My friend JD reminds me that we all have the same 24 hours in a day. Get up early. Stay up late. Work smarter.

If he could write three books while working two jobs and traveling 14 times, so can you.

He’s not wrong. I don’t want to be THAT busy. But, maybe I could write one book over the course of a year instead?

The Two of Coins reminds us maintain balance BUT be careful because you can fall on your ass and twist your ankle during this delicate, never-ending dance.

How easy it is to fall out of balance and never get back. So prioritize the money-making shit and the “have to do” shit but also prioritize the fun shit.

So, basically, sleep when you’re dead, as Bon Jovi sang.

“A heartbroken person is unlike any other person. Their time moves at a completely different pace than ours,” she explained.

“It’s this mental, physical, emotional ache and feeling so conflicted. Nothing distracts you from it. Then time passes, and the more you live your life and create new habits, you get used to not having a text message every morning saying, ‘Hello, beautiful. Good morning.’ You get used to not calling someone at night to tell them how your day was.”
