Struggling? Feeling like life’s too challenging? This will help…

I’m curious. Are you dealing with any struggles or challenges in your life right now that you aren’t quite sure how you are going to make it through?

I can relate. I totally feel for you. I gave birth to my first baby at age 42, last October. Already, my sweet Odin has taught me so much about struggle. How it’s a part of life, and how to move through it without prolonging it.

FYI: Mercury will be in retrograde from May 18th to June 11th, so if you are noticing challenges with communication, technology or things are just not working out, and you are still trying to push, you will end up creating more struggle. When Mercury goes into retrograde we get an opportunity to slow down, look within, reassess and reframe our struggle into a beautifully challenging moment.

Are you asking yourself…

Am I doing this right?
