Baby Steps

Yesterday was one of the longest, most discouraging days I've had for years. I googled, emailed and called relentlessly and to very little effect. Despite my early morning words about stubbornness, by late afternoon I was ready to fold my tent and go home.

Fortunately, I have very, very smart friends. I reached out to several remarkable women, each of whom offered stellar ideas. Each idea led to another idea. And another.

Somewhere along the google trail, I landed on a page that provided my horoscope. I don't know how the page knew I'm a Taurus, but I've learned not to delve too deeply into technical mysteries. It works because it works.

Things are about to equalize in all aspects of your life, so get ready to enjoy a healthier period that will give you a stronger sense of security and confidence. You're standing on a firm foundation again, which means you can reach higher and try harder for the things you want. It's time for bolder action and bigger stakes. You are feeling totally in control and it looks like no one is standing in your way. Ignore your fears and move ahead at full steam!

"Reach higher and try harder. Bolder action. Bigger stakes." Sounds good. That control thing, though. That's not happening. I have no illusions of control--just riding the dragon's back over here, trying to hang on and keep up.

I've got a full list of calls to make as soon as the rest of the world wakes up. With any luck, each one will move me a tiny bit closer to the goal.

Thank God for friends.
