“Remember, you’ll never do it perfect all the time, but you’re beautiful not for any other reason than the absolute reason that you are the reason you are. Try not to over-romanticize things too much. Kind of stick to the plan. It can be a far-out plan. It is a far-out plan.”
- Morgan Shaker
Much like life itself, the Year of Soup has bottomed out, and we’ve headed back up the other side of the valley. This calls for a celebration, so let’s make the most of the 19 weeks we have left, shall we? That means I’m taking suggestions, of soup, story and place, and the only rule is no looking back in sadness. There are no reasons to lament those weeks that we’ve wasted because, in the end, we have wasted no weeks! Check inside yourself (or the tumblr pages), and you will find all of the things we’ve talked about and worked on and failed at. They have come back around, and because we been makin soup and stayin alive, we feel pretty good about what’s going on. Don’t we?
This is all conjecture, of course, but according to the fortune tellers and astrologers at the end of my block, a time of reckoning is upon us – we are in the midst of the final of three celestial eclipses in the last month. It has been a remarkably high energy time, a time of change, and now we’re coming to a point of self-discovery. Apparently this knowing is something that will impact the rest of our lives. No reason to freak out about it because whatever we’re dealing with can be all in our minds, or our hearts. It might be the acceptance of something settled, or it could be the knowledge that change is definitely gonna come. Anyway, they say that whatever has been building up inside of us will be coming to our attention. And although we will still need to figure out what that means after the fact, if we do what’s best, things will fall into place. Listen to yourself.
