How are you today, my dear friends?
Its already Tuesday; day 7 | #12dailypostchallenge.
I am enjoying lunch-time over here. A very sunny day, with 32 degrees Celicius in the shadow. I just had a delicious soup from the “cucina povera”, a Minestrone and followed by a very refreshing salad with shrimps. My chef of choice topped this with some recent made “Pre-Easter” cookies and a double espresso.
By the way, just in case you haven’t visited my Art House World Instagram site, this morning I had group of little chefs preparing Easter cookies. We had so much fun and no doubt kids are great bakers 🙂
So, here I am working on my #12dailypostchallenge.
Do you remember yesterday’s post about Mercury Retrograde “Dos & Dont´s for love / romance / relationships. I promised to write about the role of the “Ex´sssss” during this three-week period…. and well, I am not like Napoleon Bonaparte, who once said: ” The best way to keep one’s word is not to give it¨. – For me a promise is duty!
Baking is a metaphor for life.
One must follow a recipe for happiness,
but adding equal measures of reliable ingredients
mixed with innovative spices in order to create
a cookie that is satisfying and sweet and
full of adventure.
– Kikis de la Creme
This is one of my favorite quotes. I know, I have used it countless times in conferences and posts, but I consider it still one of my best recipes.
You know, there are days in life, that you wonder why your indie spirit comes out in full force. Well, there could be many reasons. Probably it happens in response to undue pressure in a relationship. But then I invite you to use / apply my above mentioned quote. Instead of bolting and leaving people wondering, why you’ve ghosted them, explain what’s irking you.
They or you might not even realize, that they’ve / you’ve crossed a line. Before you start pointing fingers, though, ask yourself if you’ve sent any mixed messages ( that’s the biggest problem of Mercury Retrograde).
It’s not fair to rake someone over the coals, if you decide to re-write the rulebook in the middle of the game. So, slow down, take a deep breathe and remember my quote! Once you feel relaxed, let’s continue and discover what else Mercury Retrograde has in store :
During Mercury retrograde your “Ex” or “Exes” could re-appear. So simple!
What to do now? I have prepared a couple of options for you. Let me know if there is something among the list that suits you best!
Option No. 1: Finally, it all depends on you. Does this have “future potential” or not. In case you’re thinking about someone you once loved, this is a great time to track them down or simply honor their memory by visiting a special place you once went together.
Option No. 2: You accept an invitation from this “Ex” and over a coffee (better than bubbles 🙂 ) you have a lovely talk and that’s it (real person-to-person-mermories),
Option No. 3 : Your “Ex”contacts you and this brings still butterflies to your stomach. But, you are in a relationship and prefer not to risk this for some temporary heat. Of course, you can still be friend on Facebook or Instagram.
Option No. 4 : Your latest love life has been very sad/ stuck and you have lost faith in love. Out of sudden an old flame contacts you ( Mercury retrograde effect). Long time, you both were very much in love, but for not “rememberable” reasons you took separated directions. Now, this is your opportunity to rescue the taste of love/romance sparkles in your life. So go ahead and date this guy/girl. Re-read my above mentioned quote and enjoy
P.D. Don’t forget to share with us, if you two will give it another try.
Happy Tuesday! XOXO
