One Day at a Time, One Step at a Time

Today’s meditation was skipped.

Winter Waite Tarot 2018 Edition - Six of SwordsToday’s draw is the Six of Swords, which is traditionally a representation of leaving the past in the past, moving on, letting go in order to welcome in something better, and transitions towards something better.

As often happens with traditional illustrations of the Six of Swords, what stands out to me in the imagery in this card is the movement of the boat departing rough waters to head for smoother ones.

For me? This time of year is rife with the potential for falling back into old, unhealthy habits. Not just in self-care but in a myriad of different aspects of my life.

When I see this card.  I see a reminder that says “don’t look back”.  There’s nothing good waiting for you back there in those rough waters you’re leaving behind. Instead, stay focused on doing better, one day at a time.


Daily Self Kindness

I’ve been “off” on taking my vitamins for a few days, and I got myself back on track today by taking my vitamins as I’m supposed to and filling up my pillbox so it’ll be harder to miss them over the week. I also backed out of six more Kickstarters.

Soul’s Reminder Oracle Reading

Yule Oracle Deck

What does my soul want me to remember…

From the Past

Poinsettia and Cherry – Parties and revelry may not be your style, but don’t forget that there are times in the past when you’ve enjoyed such things in moderation, and that is possible again in the future. Don’t go into future opportunities of the same with a negative attitude that might prevent you from finding enjoyment in these get-togethers.

From the Present

Caramel Popcorn and Fig – You overspent a bit this Christmas, and you learned a valuable lesson from that experience. Make sure in the future that you resort back to shopping throughout the year, rather than trying to do it so close to the holiday season.  You do much better financially when you spread out the spending over time.

Into the Future

Candle and Gingerbread – Don’t lose track of the changes you’ve made over the last few years to better align yourself with more self-care and to lean into optimism and positivity. Carry them forward and let them help you to create a more comfortable future.
