10 of Wands Tarot Reading

Today’s Tarot card with Penny Harrington is the 10 of Wands from the Rider Waite Tarot Deck.
This picture shows a man carrying 10 wands that have leaves growing out of them.  The sky is a bright blue.  The man is blong and is wearing a red tunic with a purple belt and yellow tights.  He is also wearing light brown short boots.  In the distance, we can see a nice home and some vegetation near it.  The man appears to be walking across a stage!
At first glance, this appears to be a card about completing an arduous task of carrying all these wands to the home.  But let's examine it closer.  This is a pretty ridiculous way to carry 10 wands.  Instead of having them splayed out, it would be much easier for him to gather them together and carry them on his shoulder.  The way he is carrying them now is throwing him off balance and tiring him out. 
So, if we look at all the clues in this card, a better interpretation may be that this man is wanting attention (he is on a stage, after all) and he is making a simple task much more difficult as he nears his destination. 
Is there a situation in your life where you may be exaggerating the difficulty of completing a task.  Do you feel unappreciated for the work you are doing?  Do you tend to exaggerate in order to gain sympathy?  Either way, this task is nearly completed.
