My friend Athena gave me the cards for Christmas.
She makes and sells them. A thick stack, two inches square, each with an affirming thought or saying. They’ve been on my table when I keep my computer and yesterday they feel on the floor.
Of the whole bunch, four card landed face up.
I picked them up and read them one by one:
You are ready
You are wise
Your words make a difference
Create with abandon
It was New Year’s Eve and I hadn’t thought much about it. I’ve never been able to find meaning in the holiday. For me It has always just emphasized my feeling of not belonging.
But as I read the cards, I knew they were my New Years Mantra. Suddenly New Years had meaning for me like it never had before.
It was as if the Universe gave me a little hug, letting me know I was on the right track.
