Daily, gritty, spiritual inspiration from bestselling 'high heeled guide' author, Alice Grist.
Should you know better?
Sometimes in life the wisdom we have accumulated over many years, appears to vanish in one flash of madness. Our actions absolutely don't match what is, or should be, in our hearts and minds. We mess, up, we get crazy, we fail to meet the expectations we place upon ourselves. We act real, real, stupid.
Here you might find yourself asking why it is you managed to know not better. Because surely you should... Surely.
Wisdom is magical like that. Sometimes she ducks out of the way so that you can make a great fat foul up of a situation. But the great thing about wisdom (and why she knows best) is that she can be relearned. And with each steaming mess you make, you are granted a chance to add to your accumulated wisdom, to change with it and to grow in unexpected ways.
For life never grants us a cure, not to anything, pain, mistakes or worry. Rather, it allows you to open yourself to holding all these things in new ways, so that they become a part of you. Mistakes and whoopsies are not to shoved out, but rather, to be painted into your picture. So that you might better understand yourself.
This week I published a rather personal and painful article on an aspect of my life, one that is prevalent in the book Dirty & Divine. It was easier to post about it, as the situation is healing. But still, it made me nervous, and a little sad, to revisit that time of my life, which was not so long ago. And that felt, at the time, like a whole bunch of mistakes. But that was brought to the fore by the Dirty & Divine journey, and as a result, opened us to a place of mending, opening and holding of a bad situation... Read it here at this link.
The Other Half of Addiction
Did you know I am designing my own pack of tarot cards? Well, I should say 'have designed'. They are all painted up and subject to a few tweaks, are ready to go. Next I have to negotiate the world of design and printing, but after that, I hope, they can be in your hands!
Check out glimpses of them on my Instagram and Facebook pages.
