Willpower and Discipline

Daily Draw: Deviant Moon Tarot ~ King of Swords

Official studies have borne out what we can observe for ourselves, Americans work harder and longer at their jobs and take fewer vacation days of any of the industrial nations. Yet our nation is sinking in a morass of financial failures. The King of Swords news is we are fat, spoiled, and broke.

I'm reminded by this card that in the big picture it is seldom too late to turn things around. But when we've been fat and spoiled for so long it takes a real wake-up call and most of working America hasn't listened to the call yet. That big ornamental belt hasn't been pulled tight, but if we don't wake up the King of Swords news will put us right down there behind the 8-ball in our underwear.

"So what are you going to do about it? Whine, complain, continue feeling sorry for yourself? I have a better idea. Get mad! Decide once and for all that you will not sell your soul to the likes of MasterCard and Visa — not one more day, not one more purchase." ~ Mary Hunt, Debt Proof Living.

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
