Taking a Leap

March 5, 2010
Leaping into Life
Leo Daily Horoscope

You may feel restless today or dissatisfied with your current routine. The old patterns by which you related to others may no longer be as effective as they once were. Seeking freshness, you may be inspired to make positive changes to your life or your mind-set. Experiencing internal and external transformations could feel like a breath of fresh air, and you may be surprised to find yourself driven to make bigger and more elaborate changes. Simply adopting a new outlook could also be an invigorating experience. If you’re not inclined to make changes to your lifestyle, learning something new may satisfy your need for change. Today could be a wonderful time to explore a new activity, meet new people, or practice positive thinking.

When you’re willing to explore new ways of thinking and being, your adventurous spirit can help you attain the life you’ve dreamed of. Restlessness will diminish as you increase your forward momentum and use your innate courage to foster change. By stepping out of a few old patterns and into new ones, you encourage change to permeate your being. Transforming yourself in one way can give you the courage to makes changes in other areas of your life that you would not have previously considered. Besides, change naturally fosters open-mindedness. By choosing to embrace change today, you can make your life feel new and exciting again.

First, sorry that I dropped off the planet a bit this past week. I've been rather out of sorts, have some stuff going on in my life that I'm trying to deal with. I'm the first one to admit that I don't handle change well; in fact, I fight it kicking and screaming! As much as I enjoy passion & excitement, I also thrive on stability and there is not quite enough of that in my life right now. Every member of my immediate family is in a state of flux at the moment and, being the Matriarch of my little brood, this can't help but impact me. Yet, at the same time I'm experiencing anxiety and worry over these changes, I'm also feeling restless and anxious to do something different for myself. Everyone else is doing new & exciting things and I feel stagnant. I feel a major lifestyle change coming on. I don't know exactly what it's going to look like, that part hasn't been made clear to me yet, but I know something is happening internally and that has no choice but to change me externally.

In the past when I've felt this way it's resulted in weight loss and other physical alterations (nails, hair, etc). It's like I need that little outward boost in order to move forward with the emotional/mental issues. The inside & outside work hand in hand in my case.

So, stay tuned for a new & (hopefully) improved Rapunzel.

Have a Beauty-full Day,


  1. Hope things improve soon...

    Take care of yourself.

  2. wow, your post was amazing, I have been dealing with similar things. I SO look forward to your pin-up photos, they brighten my day! Good luck on your journey!!

  3. Michelle, thank you so much for your kind words! xoxoxo

  4. I hope all the turmoil quiets down soon. A lot of what you said about being spontaneous yet thriving on stability totally apply to me as well. And your description of feeling stagnant pushing big external changes as well. I think there are cycles to everything and when we complete a major life cycle this is how we feel. Im currently searching for my "what next?" too!!

  5. Ariel, thanks so much, we will get through this "together!" :)

  6. Change is also scary for me. I mostly cry and go crazy for a few days. Then when things settle down, I try to be rational about the whole thing. It takes a lot of mental strength for me to do this because I am an overthinker and a recovering pessimist.

    I hope things get better!

  7. All Women Stalker, I completely hear you on the "overthinking" as I too tend to do the same. Love the "recovering" pessimist label, good for you!

    Thank you for your comment, it helps to know I'm not alone in this! xoxoxo
