Tempering

Daily Draw: EartHeart Wisdom + Myth and Magic Cards ~ Alchemy

The tempering of our internal metal and mettle begins at birth.

I'm reminded by this card metal can be bent and broken, mettle can turn to spinelessness. As an adult I have options every day to confirm or deny or redesign the real me.

"Tender-handed stroke a nettle,
And it stings you for your pains;
Grasp it like a man of mettle,
And it soft as silk remains." ~ Aaron Hill 1685-1750

  1. Though drawing different cards, we seem to be on the same mental wavelength today. :)

  2. I guess a lot of us have been tempered to be the good girls and now it is up to us to become authentic women

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