Although you know that you should just follow instructions and do what you’re told today, your heart might not be into it. You are not happy deferring to someone else’s agenda and don’t want to chase a pot of gold that isn’t at the end of your own rainbow. It may be healthier to focus on your personal goals now rather than anyone else’s. Just be sure that your new-found heightened practicality doesn’t stand between you and an otherwise delightful time. You can have your cake and eat it too if you budget your resources wisely.
This past May, I decided to pack up my life in Richmond, Virginia. I left my lovely job, clients, friends and family. I set off for a new adventure in Lafayette Louisiana. As I expected, things had slowed down in their entirety. I feel as though for a minute I was at standstill. I have spent the past 5 months pondering/ brewing/ preparing for what my new life is supposed to bring. Setting myself up for what I know I want and have wanted; to work for myself. I have second, third and forth guessed if i’m doing the right thing, but never have regretted my decision. What a lovely adventure it is as it unfolds. Before I moved here I had a potential job offer, something totally different then what i’m used to doing. I approach it with an open heart, but am held back from working immediately. It takes four months to process paperwork and get my license transferred. In that time there were many expected-not so expected money draining, inconveniences. I would like to say that I’ve used my time wisely, but when we have time that seems never-ending, I think we end up taking great advantage. There are many things that I am very grateful for. I have learned that I am in control of my own thoughts and this is very important for me and helps sort my mental issues. It is powerful, this universe. Today I interviewed and gave a regional massage to a woman who was potentially going to higher me (the same place as I was offered before). I was left with a “call and talk to the owner tomorrow”. I have a good feeling about it. It’s a lovely space, physically. The energy is a bit mixed and not necessarily as professional as i’m used to, but it is personal and I like that. Let me reiterate and say that I am a listener. I listen to universal signs that I am getting and try very hard to move with ease. How I feel about this place: I am happy and so grateful that they are offering me this job. It isn’t what I necessarily want, but I am willing to give it a try. I am happy to work with people that have somewhat the same mentality as me. I like the atmosphere, but as I said earlier, it is something I am not used to. There are some aspects that I wouldn’t necessarily include in my business, like permanent makeup, botox, etc. I am open to learning more about it. As i’m leaving my interview, a woman in the car parked next to mine asks if I had just come out of the spa. I say “yes!” “Do you know if Rochelle is working with my husband still? I have the baby and don’t want to bring her in incase she’s loud” She says. I look at her with a blank stare. ” I don’t think so? I believe there is only one therapist in there and she is in session now.” I introduced myself and told her I had just had an interview. She says ” Oh! I was wondering why you didn’t know who Rochelle was. Are you looking for a job?” “Yes! I am!” I caught myself with a little desperation in my voice. As though I was wishing I had other options. I didn’t realize it until that moment. “A really good friend of mine is opening a wellness center. If you are interested. I don’t want to take you away from this spa, but if you are still looking. She is a chiropractor and is looking for a massage therapist to work out of her practice, along with a dietitian and a PT! You would be an independent therapist with your own business, but I’m pretty sure they would refer their clients to you” She goes on and talks to me about how for many years she has been attending these meet up groups for small business owners to speak to one another ect. I have been looking into this for many months, but have not yet met anyone that I could remotely talk to about it. There is a lot to say about what this woman has offered me. Some part of me really thinks that this may be the mentor I have been seeking out. As for the job, It is exactly what I’ve been manifesting. I have been preparing for this opportunity and at this moment I hear “YES! YES! YES!” I can not express how grateful I am and how powerful and lovely this universe is when you are tapped in. I love being in this vortex and no one is getting me out!

You could be living in a bubble of fantasy, even if you believe your self-assessment is grounded in reality. It may even be challenging to get a clear handle on what you can bring to the table. Unfortunately, facts are colored by your feelings now, and it’s nearly impossible to separate your objective perceptions from subjective opinions unless you make a conscious decision to do so. Thankfully, the potential for creating meaning in your life grows stronger when your intuitive visions are fully integrated.

You might feel as if others are withholding their true emotions and pulling away from you now. The Moon’s presence in your 7th House of Relationships shifts the focus from your own little world to observing the reactions of everyone else. Don’t rely on your perceptions alone to give you objective data as you could get carried away with your false assumptions and not even know it. Stop spinning stories and just listen to your heart.
bless them for letting baby girl keep her heritage
I peep them braids and that dress
I was just thinking this. She actually takes the children back to visit their family in their home country and they study about their own cultures. She isn’t one of those white people trying to assimilate her non-white children.
She doesn’t use her kids as props and accessories, and she loves and cherishes them all equally it looks like.
Not to mention how she lets John (Shiloh prefers to be called John) dress and act how they like
Also, I’m pretty sure her wedding dress has her kids’ drawings on it, which is just unbelievably adorable.
it does have her kids drawings on it, they also helped to write the vows and Maddox the eldest boy made the cake with his friends, which is probably why he looks so nervous in the picture of them cutting it.
Every single thing I hear about this wedding makes me so happy even though they’re complete strangers to me because it just seems so joyful.
I remember reading a while ago that when they hire nannies, they have a nanny from each child’s country of origin, who is fluent in their country’s native language, and can teach not just the individual child but the whole family about that country and culture. It’s really incredible how non-assimilative they’ve made their household.
