Daily Draw: Renaissance Tarot ~ 3 of Wands

When I look at this card I see 3 little girls at the beach posing for a photo. Locked in time, a memory on paper. What it means for me today though is successful progress on the project we've been working on this year. Another milepost will be passed this morning on a path I never would have dreamed would have come this far. Not without a lot of tears and heart ache anyway.

What is it about human nature that persists in expecting the worst, shoulders hunched, eyes squinted against the onslaught? If we had to put numbers to it I'd guess under 5% of the things we worry about ever come to happen. And it's usually the things we hadn't considered that come and give us a great whacking wake-up call. I will say that reordering my mind into positive channels has made a world of difference. I spend a lot less time worrying about stuff that will never happen and a lot more time savoring the good. For instance I could be sitting here with my stomach tied in knots about today, but hey, I have a 3 of Wands card, so instead I'll savor that I had a free-lance piece accepted by a magazine yesterday...so perhaps good news about my manuscript submission won't be far behind. A girl can dream!

"Some see things as they are and say, "Why?" I dream of things that never were and say, "Why not?" ~ George Bernard Shaw 1856-1950
