Personal Magic

Daily Draw: Moon Oracle ~ Fountain, Moon Mansion 10

Quick quote from the book: This Moon Mansion signifies recognition of your creativity by yourself and others; drawing this card urges you to believe in your own many and varied abilities and their worth to other people.

Lord knows I've heard myself and others put themselves down or turn away honest compliments often enough. What is it that makes white women unable to just say thank you with a smile? Where does the need to nitpick our talents and denigrate our work come from? Being 50-something has many hidden blessings, allowing myself to finally say Thank You with a smile is but one of them. Creativity and imagination are our personal magic. Believe in it. Own it.

"Monsters are real, and ghosts are real too. They live inside us, and sometimes, they win." ~ Stephen King 1947-

  1. Somewhere along the line women have been taught (society? religion?) that we should be humble. Unfortunately, they didn't give us the correct definition of humility...

  2. I love this definition of personal magic and will try to remember it next time I am tempted to deflect a compliment.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
