“Life turns on a dime. Sometimes towards us, but more often it spins away, flirting and flashing as it goes: so ling, honey, it was good while it lasted, wasn’t it?” – Stephen King, 11/22/63
Life turns on a dime, as the old saying goes. But what does it mean? Well, many are aware that a dime is one of the smallest coins in American currency. A dime is worth 10 cents to most of us, and while that may not seem like much, when added together dimes become dollars. At this moment in time, and with all of the new energies arriving on Earth, I believe that “life turns on a dime, may very well be something we, ourselves might ponder at this moment.
The new energies are asking each of us to review our lives and dismiss what is no longer serving us. While we may have flashes of insight as to what it is that we really want in life, big changes can be frightening.
Life Turns on a Dime
I would remind you here that the greatest of treasures, places like The Grand Canyon, the Pyramids, various monuments and World Wonders, did not develop overnight. As humans, I believe we could take a lesson in seeing this characteristic within our own soul.

Our bodies are electrical, producing an energetic environment rich in thoughts, ideas, behaviors and attitudes. All have choices of how their day and life will be.
Yet, at times, someone, from somewhere comes along to challenge your boundaries, and steal your happiness. These negative people are “energy vampires”.
Energy vampires may exhibit a victim like behavior. This behavior removes them from blame, allowing them to project their wrongs in life onto you. It is always someone else’s fault; victim energy vampires seldom realize they have options to help themselves. Each of us is struggling with different scenarios in life, and at times we feel downhearted. Positive people find ways to lift from the rut; victim energy vampires wish to stay in the rut.
Energy vampires often choose to ignore or never gain control of their emotions. Emotions are the basis for our actions and reactions in life. These people are liabilities, especially in relationships. What is that saying, the first time you do something it is a mistake, the second time it is a choice. Accountability is part of spiritual growth. Habitual energy vampires who choose to deny emotions stay stuck in their story to gain attention and sympathy. This robs you of your precious time, energy and positive way of thinking. Empathy is great but sympathy means you take on another’s problem so the vampire does not have to deal with it.
