Today I opened up the Faerie Oracle by Brian Froud and I swear all the cards just jumped out of nowhere and went all over the place…because fairies….
Evidently they want some time out in the light. Sure. Ok. The one card I managed to keep in my hand as the rest just exploded all over my desk is number 48 The Collective of Pixies.
Now, as you can imagine Pixies lllllllooooooooovvve to Dance. And DO the things. There is a lot of positive magic in that statement and relationship to doing things (Duty) and Joy (Dance).
Essentially what this reminds me is we all have things to do in our day that we probably do not want to do. I know I did NOT want to get out of bed this morning. My bed had finally cooled down to a reasonable temperature. The covers could be on without roasting me. My cat was purring away by my head and I DID NOT WANT TO GET UP.
No I’m not a morning person.
So with much grumping I finally got out of bed. I realized that had I thrown on some ridiculous dance music or had a mock argument with my roommate to get my brain moving and my blood pumping then I could have bounced out of bed ready the day. Instead I crawled out one limb at a time, slowly, painfully.
The lesson? My mindset made this whole process more arduous than had I simply sucked it up buttercup and put a move on the day. Then it would have been over, done, in the past. Many remark, “Time Flies when you are having fun.” and I think in many ways if you are mindful, and put your intention to have fun even if the duty is not your favorite; you too can make time fly!
DO the THINGS QUICKLY, do them cheerfully and you too can bend space and time like the Fae.
