Does anyone remember the saying “ A little bird told me?” I am choosing to use birds as that gut feeling a person gets when you know you made the wrong choice or decision. You know the one I mean, when you realize you should have been more cautious in your business dealings with that person. It is a pang of sorts, as if your instincts are saying listen up, heed the signs. Often it is strongest when someone is trying to manipulate you into doing something that you do not want to do; when their soul purpose is to gain something from you for their best interest, not yours.
Peaches represent the the sweet and loving people that I treasure in my life and all the little things that make living truly worthwhile. The call you get from a friend to see how you are. A card from a loved one when you are sick, the neighbour that brings you flowers. Your partner that cares enough to work more so you can deal with your health conditions and not have to worry about working. It can simply be the sounds of crickets in the fields at night, the smell of fresh rain, and the cuddly puppy that jumps into your arms at the end of the day. Even in the darkest moments, always remember to love and appreciate your peaches because they are not all going to be sweet.
Tennis balls represents the obstacles one does not see coming. The unexpected little surprises that feel as if one has been plummeted with tennis balls and cannot catch all of them at once. The proverbial balancing act where rationale can go out the window and what I call “the who cares already” zone emerges.
