Illustration Friday: Detach

I believe in synchronicity, but still I was quite amazed when I saw that this week's topic was detach. My husband got laid off from his job this week, and at the same time the house we just bought is sinking causing cracks in the walls and stuck doors. So I've been working on being detached from imaginary scenarios produced by worry and just trying to deal with the facts. We will get the house fixed so we can sell it if we need to relocate--or if he finds a job here it will be fixed for us.

You're smart to detach yourself from worry because worrying gets us nowhere but sick.
How scary though, needless to say no one wants to lose a job, especially in these hard times. I'll keep you both in my thoughts that everything will play out in your favor.
Excellent image. It conveys your situation perfectly. I like how your chakras are perfectly aligned in spite of it all! :)

God will never let us down! He will provide in the strangest ways.
You are on a good path, the ability to create that drawing just shows it.

The synchronicity will continue, stay calm. Bless you!

Oh, Heather, this is tough... I'm sorry to hear you and your family are going through this ordeal, but your attitude is so right. It's not easy, but the best thing is not to get overwhelmed and stay calm.
I hope things improve very, very soon!
