Getting Growed Up

Daya had dance pictures this past weekend.  For six different classes. At six different times, all spaced out. It was an all-day affair, full of too many people in a small space and much mayhem.

I printed out her photo tickets, paid for everything, wrote the time and location on each, and told her she was responsible for the rest.  She had to pack her costumes, keep track of them, be in the right outfit in the right place at the right time. She also had her phone.

She said "Ok, no problem."  I said call me if you need anything.

And I left her at dance and went home.

And it all went perfectly. When I went to pick her up, the owner of the studio told me how impressed she was. Daya was very independent, responsible, and mellow about the whole thing. She handled everything herself. She did a fantastic job. She had fun with her friends. There were no issues, no problems.

I am very proud of Daya.  She is growing up very well.

She got her favorite dinner- sushi- afterwards.

Card today Rock Bottom (upright)
This is such a cool image!

My interpretation: Everyone has to hit rock bottom at some point, at least once. It's a pretty horrible place but there's only one way to go and that is up and out. It is a process of growth, and ultimately it is up to us how we react to it and where we go from there.  Rock Bottom can either culminate in our death- whether that is physical, emotional, metaphorical etc- and actually a death aspect is usually involved- but we can resurrect or stay ghosts.  It's up to us.

Booklet says: "Surrender and acceptance are the keys to freedom."  Reaching a point where you can no longer move forward in the same manner. Proverbial brick wall.  Could be a loss and you don't know where to turn. Old ways of doing things have to be discarded.  Surrender and accept, and the way out will appear. Release.  Can be a sign that a miracle is about to occur, but only if you let go completely.


  1. You and Daya make a good team.

    Been at the bottom, nowhere to turn. Must let go. Better now than later.

  2. Wonderful photos. Her hat looks great!


Thanks for stopping by!
