Spinning plates, breakage and making space for some different china…..

We spend so much time keeping all our plates spinning that I wonder how often we step back and look at the plates?

Sometimes the wind picks up and a plate smashes to the ground. At other times we make a decision and deliberately let a plate go or one that is worn out simply breaks on the pole. Another is when you are so busy concentrating on certain plates that others smash, because you trip up or run out of energy.

I have come to believe that to try and glue the plates back together again is a waste of energy.

Nothing happens by accident and plate breakage is one of nature’s laws as it allows room on our poles for the new.

Right now I am contemplating all sorts of china as I need a whole new collection of different plates. It’s perfectly alright to take a bit of time to choose as I could be spinning these plates for some time to come. Also I only need to start with a few. I do need to choose though, so right now I am being quiet and listening to my heart.

    Being very, very quiet and waiting for that still,small voice is completely essential for you right now, Jane! So wise you are! No spinning and no glueing broken pieces.

    You have phrased our trials, tribulations and situations so uniquely, Jane.

    May your new set of china be exciting and special.

    Blessings – Maxi

    You’re a very wise woman Jane to take those worn out plates down off the poles.
    Hugs coming your way.

        Call me Ishmael …
        Consider all this; and then turn to this green, gentle, and most docile earth; consider them both, the sea and the land; and do you not find a strange analogy to something in yourself? For as this appalling ocean surrounds the verdant land, so in the soul of man there lies one insular Tahiti, full of peace and joy, but encompassed by all the horrors of the half known life. God keep thee! Push not off from that isle, thou canst never return!

    I didn’t know you were working in a circus. You should practice with plastic plates first, much cheaper! 😆
