Angst and Pain

Daily Draw: Anna.K Tarot ~ 10 of Swords

Sometimes overwhelming anxiety keeps us from a 10 of Swords position far longer than is healthy. Because when it's over it's over, and as this figure shows us, we can get up and head off to the rest of our life.

I'm reminded by this card of dental work. We put if off, get the trembles sitting in the waiting room, come time for the shot we scrunch up our bum till we're about 6" above the chair...and it's just a little prick. Three seconds and it's done, and it barely registers on our pain meter. It is the anticipation of the dentist that makes us crazy, not the actual visit. That pretty much holds true for the rest of life's difficult moves. Just do it.

"Every tomorrow has two handles. We can take hold of it with the handle of anxiety or the handle of faith." ~ Henry Ward Beecher 1813-1887
