Hope you had a fine weekend and that your week's begun well. I worked a lot on a new tarot booth for the Renaissance Festival.
There's a saying in woodworking -- "Measure Twice, Cut Once". My version is "Measure Twice, Cut Once, then go back to the store and buy more wood because you messed up the cut." My first attempt had the dadoes going in the wrong direction (dado == those little notches you see on the ends of Lincoln Logs). Mine were angled and I did the angles pointing the wrong way.
My new version won't use dadoes. I'm not even sure if I'm spelling it the right way!
On to this week's reading:
Our first card -- the Ten of Swords.
And this is good news? Yes, it actually is! If things cannot get any worse ... then that means they can only get better! Any movement has to be an improvement.
So -- don't get discouraged when things don't seem to be working out. You CAN move on to better things if you try. It's when you get discouraged and don't try that you get in trouble.
But what can you do to improve things? How can you gain a positive outlook when things seem to work against you?
That's where our second card comes in -- the Hermit!
So -- when things aren't going your way, don't let it throw you off track. Don't shut down and huddle in a ball -- look up and forward, take control, and make things better!
Be strong ...
