Here ye, here ye, I now pronounce the first of each month as Astrology Zone day!  Susan Miller has rocked my world for the last 8 years.  I know she writes a book instead of a paragraph, but dang if that lady isn’t spot-on 80% of the time.  If you have 10 minutes (or an hour, ha!) today to read your own forecast, do it! –

I love to be busy.  I love to have lots of things to do.  I love a schedule.  I love a program.  With that being said I also love not overcommitting myself, which has been an obstacle that’s taken a lot of practice to semi-accomplish.   I find a lot of my posts have to do with finding a balance – a zen Jen zone.  🙂  I guess that’s part of the territory of having a lot of energy and excitement in general – while you have the capability to do a lot of things well, the danger is either exhaustion or spreading yourself too thin.  When I get excited about something, I want to do it all the time.  I think that’s why I enjoy endurance sports and long-term goals so much, as it takes the need to sprint out of my system.  Practicing patience has done nothing but benefit me in the bigger picture.  All you can do it set your sights on something, then try your best to even out your efforts in order to reach your goal.  Take failures as part of the process, not the end result.  If you could do everything perfectly then there wouldn’t be much point to life and growing spiritually.

The obstacles and challenges that are put in our way make living interesting.  I’m pretty sure no one has the perfect existence free of cares and worries.  We worry because we love, we care because we want.  Wanting is a great thing.  I want a lot – to live up to my potential, to realize my dreams, to make a difference or an impact on the world in some small way,  to leave a mark or a memory with others that I care about.  I want to discover and realize peace.  I want for my loved ones to find the same.  And I think if that’s what you truly desire, then you will have bright moments of clarity from time to time where you actually get to experience those things.  Otherwise, will you be aware enough to notice?
