Just do the Work

D1_8-of-pentacles-ed1970_V2The 8 of Pentacles is about work, focusing on the job at hand. This is the energy I want to focus on today. There’s nothing glamorous here. I need to exercise, work on my paintings, clean up the apartment. I don’t expect any big rewards, other than the satisfaction of accomplishing what I set out to do today. The work itself is where the satisfaction lies.

The message of the card also reminds me of meditation practice. You show up, you sit. That’s it.
