“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and to try to love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books that are written in a very foreign tongue. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is, to live everything. Live the questions now. Perhaps you will then gradually, without noticing it, live along some distant day into the answer. Perhaps you do carry within yourself the possibility of shaping and forming as a particularly happy and pure way of living; train yourself to it-but take whatever comes with great trust, and if only it comes out of your own will, out of some need of your inmost being, take it upon yourself and hate nothing.”
Rainer Maria Rilke in Letters to a Young Poet
and this from my horror-scope on Excite:
Career issues rise to the surface right now. Just what is it with the firm that pays your salary? Are the benefits of working here worth the actual job description? The Stars prep you for a challenging day. You’re not ready to state your case, but it’s never too early to start building one. Start taking notes on everything that’s going on around you so that you can recall the tiny details at a later date. You can never have too much evidence when you’re trying to convict a guilty party.
It may be the incredibly steep learning curve that is stressing me out so .. it may be that I am so lazy that actually having to WORK 8 hours a day is stressing me so or it may be that my subconscious is (finally) staging a revolt and telling me that I must go do something else — but whatever it is, it is making me dislike work more and more and more. Melissa is great … truly. The very antithesis of Hooty. But all day long I feel overwhelmed and stressed and am so happy to escape there in the evening.
Any suggestions for the path I should be on?
