Today wasn't a fantastic day, not from my accountant's point of view, no doubt! Oh, well! Good thing I still have a full time job! Or I'd be panicking! ;)
If you haven't already guessed, or didn't already know from meeting me, Tarot Readings By Jewel was set up for love, because I wanted to do this, not because it was something I had to do to make ends meet. There is such joy in that.
This is something I want to do, it's not a "I have to do this". We all do too much of that as it is in this life, and when this opportunity came to me, I eventually took it - as I had to say no to L.H. first, then came back round to yes! I said it before I realised I'd decided to do it, and with 2 weeks notice, Tarot Readings By Jewel commenced on Tuesday September 20th 2011. Thankfully, there was a conveniently placed long weekend involved in there too!
For me, it was one of the best decisions I ever made for the people (clients included), it has brought in to my life.
And although today was not a success in the sense that I did not have any clients booked in, it was on many other levels. There are occasions when Fate steps in and allows you to do the things you need to, rather than those you think you should do.
Lots of plans have been made today, with S.W. and L.H., regarding the next few months at Mind Body and Soul, with new lunch time meditations, upcoming workshops and treatments, a new pagan open circle. A drumming circle and yoga. A second Tai Chi class on Saturdays with M.G. More talks on Wednesdays. A monthly Medium event. An Open day in January and a Psychic Fair in February! It's all go, go, go and I get to watch it happen and have a part in it!
It's exciting and infectious! I've decided to do a talk in March 2012 about Tarot - now, how to prepare for that?! Possibly a workshop in the future??? Maybe not today! LOL! Not quite ready for that! ;)
But the other part of today was spent taking care of myself - a Curves work out in the morning - 30 minutes, ladies, that's all you need! - and a session of Reflexology with the lovely J.P. that involved nearly 4 miles of walking on a clear, chilly day and my IPod playing to get there and back.
Walking is such a great way to clear your head, even when you don't realise how much you need it. My life has changed so much over the last few months that I have forgotten to make time for me, and to take care of myself. These things are so important to your well being.
So to sum up, today was a wash if I focussed on how quiet my day could've been if I'd chosen to spend it trying to get clients in. But by taking another path, I made my day work for me so well, full of little accomplishments, that I feel re-charged and ready to get back to my full time job tomorrow.
Until next time, Dear Reader,
Jewel :) x
