Wakey Wakey

Daily Draw: WildWood Tarot ~ 7 of Swords/Arrows

She is standing on a firm foundation but looks like she has fallen backward onto shed cedar tree tailings which are stickery and stiff. An uncomfortable place to be.

Given the keyword insecurity, does it mean first day on the job? Insecurity but with excitement. Or the insecurity that might come from the loss of a partner? Dining out alone is a real speed bump to conquer. "Just one?" "only you?" "All alone tonight?"  She lies in a place she can recover from, in spite of the arrows. The real question is will she choose to do so. Insecurity can be a place we live from, our base of every experience, or a jumping off point, just having a little respite here, thank you.

"The task which a person can and must set for himself is not to feel secure, but to be able to tolerate insecurity." ~ Erich Fromm 1900-1980

  1. "the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune" We can curl up or get back on our feet. Still from time to time I shout out "NOT FAIR" hope your day is not a tangled mess.

  3. "a jumping off point": Enough is enough. Somehow we got take to deep breath and jump from that so called safe foundation away from our self defeating, rigid way of thinking.

    1. truly. But I think it is in reflection, we realize we could have jumped much sooner. Live and learn I guess
