The other day, Doug and I went to Ojo together to hold an interview class for a new teacher. I made a big announcement that I would drive; sweet Doug always drives, it was my turn and we took my car. When all was said and done, I was so tired, like could have fallen asleep right then and there. Doug said he would drive us back and I let him; it's good for me to be present, to not always stick to my word, and to accept help.
When we were almost home, just after we had gone over the Gorge Bridge, there was a huge herd of big horn sheep, right there by the road! It thrilled me Doug was driving, if I had been, I probably wouldn't have seen them through my tiredness.
It is a total boon to see big horn sheep, especially in the springtime; they represent new beginnings. According to Animal Speak, "If the ram has come into your life, do some examination--but don't take too long with it. It is usually an indication of a time to make some new beginnings, to initiate new endeavors--rather than to just think about it. Are you acting on your ideas or are you just talking about them? When the ram shows up, it will teach you to bring forth the powers of the mind and imagination and use them to seek out new heights and new adventures."
Can I get an amen to the question "Are you acting on your ideas or are you just talking about them?" I have been talking about having my own office for pretty much my whole life and the opportunity is finally here. My dear friend Kyoko is expanding her business, and starting next month, I can rent an office there. Of course I'm nervous: my monthly overhead is about to increase. Every time someone asks me how my B.E.S.T. practice is, I say I want it to get bigger and I know it will as soon as I move into an office. If that wasn't true to begin with, I've said it so many times, it's the truth now.
Thank you for the encouragement, big horn sheep.
