I am an open book.
The mind is such a powerful thing. Sometimes, we have it in our heads that our story — our life is just something we’re handed. We accept it — good or bad, but things change. Characters in your stories progress.. including yourself. So many times, I have this preconceived notion of what I believe is going to happen or expect will happen. I place restrictions on myself, because I justify and take accountability for that which happen in one sense, but when I allow myself to open up my mind, to take things as they come differently and perceive things in a way that allows for change and development, I can take control of my story and manipulate certain things to my preference.
I miss being in this picture.
Jimmy and I just got back from our little road trip through California. We made our way up north along the coast, through some major cities, and returned through the mountains! California offers some great sites! I’ll post more about it later along with some of the pictures that we took. I wish it could have only lasted a little longer as there is just so much to see… Overall, this trip made me appreciate living in the beautiful state of California more even though it’s not always easy to see the beauty from down below!
Chinese Tiger and Rabbit usually get on well together, though they may have clashes and disagreements. Tiger is outgoing and wants their freedom, which may leave shy Rabbit feeling neglected. Rabbit usually lets Tiger be the dominant partner, which is initially pleasing to Tiger. This may wear thin, however over time. They may tend to compete against each other… this can prevent them from being happy. When they stop competing they will be content.
If they can overcome their differences, both will develop a respect for each other. Tiger’s ability to take control and Rabbit’s ability to remain modest simply amazes the other. If they cannot overcome their issues, the relationship becomes unbalanced, and soon no one will be happy. As friends, they balance each others’ differences. Rabbit can keep Tiger’s ego in check while Tiger can rush to Rabbit’s aid when they are taken advantage of. The Rabbit makes a great partner because they almost always put the other person first. Their greatest happiness is making their partner happy.
When this pairing consists of a Rabbit man and a Tiger woman, they initially see in the other what they lack. She will be outgoing, impulsive and strong willed, while he is courteous, soft spoken and prefers to stay at home. This can lead to conflict.
I’ve been procrastinating.
