So, here we are in a new year. Four days in and we already have a new moon as well. It seems natural that many of us are discussing what we are leaving behind in 2010 and what we are looking forward to in 2011. This seems to be the perfect time to contemplate what we didn’t like about the past and how we plan to change our lives for the better. Yet, I wonder if that is the right way to look at it. I have received many messages over the year to keep my attitude bright and keep my words focused on positive energies. So why not do this in my retrospection on the past year as well? Why not look at what I really liked about 2010 and build off of that for 2011?
I pulled a card to figure out the direction of this blog and got a rather interesting card. The Seven of Swords is often a card of cunning, deception and theft. Not good thoughts to dwell on. However, It is also a card of keeping your focus in front of you and being content with what you have instead of dwelling on what you have left behind. Regardless of what you left behind, you have everything you need in your hands right now. Seems fitting to see this card as a message to stop looking back at what you didn’t get and start appreciating the things you did. So here are some of the things I am thankful for from 2010 (in no particular order):
- Getting engaged to my soul mate
- Camping with my son
- Daddy-Daughter dances
- Staying up all night talking with my step daughter
- Starting my Tarot business
- Coming out of the “psychic closet”
- The myriad of wonderful people that I have met in the Tarot and psychic community
- Discovering new gifts and talents that I can use to bring light to the world
- Concerts and festivals throughout the year
- Realizing just how much Spirit has and always will provide for me
Yes, there were crappy parts to 2010 as well. But I choose not to focus on those. Instead I will focus on the list above and the many other things that blessed my life over the past twelve months. These successes will be the base for my growth in 2011 and beyond.
Turn your heads around and look at what’s in your hands, folks. It’s more than you ever thought possible.
