*UPDATE* I feel like I am coming down with another cold so this card is even more relevant...
"The Resting Tree is a sign for you to stop focusing and planning and be at peace in the moment. This is the representation of non-action and relaxation."
I've been feeling very burnt out the past week. I have had some rather unpleasant sinus headaches and bladder issues over the past week, and have not slept well. Then on Sunday I found out from my daughter's teacher (who called me) that my daughter has not been behaving in school on several occasions. I very carefully, and somewhat sternly, explained everything to my daughter this morning but despite the warnings from the teacher, my husband and myself she got in trouble yet again. I know the teacher is implementing a strategy for the 2nd grade class, as she noticed things were getting squirrelly, but it just really upset me--I was hoping things would go more smoothly!
Anyway, I'm going to hibernate a bit for the rest of the week. I've been enjoying this app I got by Colette Baron-Reid: Wisdom of the Hidden Realms. I'm taking this card as a signal to wait to take any specific action for my daughter (beyond what her teacher is working on discipline-wise in the class), but try to let it rest and see how things settle out. This is a new situation for her, having never been in the classroom. I know it is a big adjustment. It helps somewhat to know that she wasn't the only kid in the class to exhibit behavior issues, but it isn't necessarily much of a relief, either.
I hope you all have a wonderful week.
