Day 35: A Whole New World
An offer to go for a walk comes my way and though being a lazy bum in my pjs seemed far more promising for the blues I had going on, I knew movement was the better choice.
Not long after persuading myself to continually put one foot in front of the other, I came across a playing card on the ground. It happened to be a Princess Jasmine 8 card. I immediately picked it up and slipped it into my bag. Instant cheer me up find.
I’ve already mentioned the symbolism of 8 before, and it’s nice to see it again, a reminder of not only change on the horizon, but also the power I have to change.
I feel lucky there is some part of me that holds onto the idea that my life could one day be a whole new world. Some days that has brought me more pain than it does hope, because I could not see the path to that place, but it has saved me a few times when I really needed it.
Jasmine is free-spirited, and in many ways resembles the “rebellious princess” archetype. She is headstrong, and longs for the freedom that other girls have. This eventually leads to Jasmine running away, but she gets into trouble as she is initially naive regarding the world outside of the palace. Jasmine can be very willful; she refuses all of the suitors that her father chooses, preferring to wed for love rather than for wealth. Jasmine can also be kind and caring, and is considered to be clever and intelligent. She shows a love for adventure, and often accompanies Aladdin on his journeys.
Check out Day 8 for the symbolism of this number shaped like infinity.
A little walking. Tea. Painted my nails.
Virtue: choosing to do something.
Vice: no particular vice, I don’t think it’s right to say feeling bad is a vice. It happens.
Letting emotions build, become stagnant, and paralyze me.
