Today’s card says “I’m not here to fix anything; I’m here for fun.” On the back…“You are not here to fix anything, because nothing is broken, but everything is continually changing and expanding. Release your struggle, and seek joy and fun, and in doing so, you will align with the fantastic expanding rhythm of the Universe.” This is something that, if you struggle with, changes are you have struggled with it your whole adult life…maybe it was even part of your childhood. You have this feeling that it’s your job, your mission in life, to stop and help fix things in the lives of those around you. Some people I’ve known have let their own lives fall into complete shambles but yet they’re the first ones in line to help out a loved one. There’s a lot to be said for being selfless but there’s also a lot to be said for avoiding your own life by being so focused on fixing what’s going on in the lives of others.
If you’re someone who spends a lot of time on taking care of the needs of others and trying to fix everything and everyone in sight, ask yourself two things. Why do I need to take care of everything else to intensely? And what in my life have I avoided dealing with or fixing?
It’s not your job to fix the world or to even fix the problems of your loved ones. Sometimes it’s not even our job to fix our own issues, per se, and we need to just ride the wave of whatever is happening around us. If we stop struggling to keep a certain thing away from us, like trying to ignore certain feelings or memories, we end up with nothing but more things that are binding us and holding us back from living freely and in joy.
Find the reason for why you feel a need to fix things and fix that! Find the things in your life that you hide from by dealing with other people’s lives. Know that it’s not up to you to make your friends or your family happy and joyful. You only need to be worried about your own joy and happiness. Focusing on you and where you need to be in your journey can speak far more helping, healing words for those around you that need “fixing” than anything you can do directly for them at times. When we see someone we love struggle with something and overcome it we become inspired to do the same.
Sometimes you’re not the one that needs to be grabbing the wheel for someone and instead just being the person who they need to follow down the path to joy and wellness.
