With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts- Eleanor Roosevelt. Eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle isn’t always easy, but know you are heading in the right direction. Changing the way you eat, think, live, may come with a detox of old emotions and memories. If you fall off the bandwagon, don’t scold yourself, just get back on!

To me...”drink responsibly” means “Don’t spill your superfoods shake” I was thinking about it today and realized I haven’t had a drink in nearly a year and a half! It was something that I ultimately didn’t serve me during the grieving and healing process. It kept me from actually dealing with my feelings and growing through them.
I remember when I decided to stop. I had this vision of myself 5 years down the road on the same path I was on. Sick, tired, angry, isolated, overweight, smoking 2 packs a day and drinking trying to forget my problems. I knew I couldn’t live like that and that’s not what my daughter would have wanted, and my parents deserved more than that.
I decided to channel every negative feeling in my life and use that pain to fuel the fire inside me to change. I think it’s very important to share experiences like this because there is someone out there struggling with the exact same feelings. They may get a glimmer of hope knowing that they are not alone and that it is possible to make a drastic life change at any moment.
I am not an extraordinary person. I don’t have more willpower than you. I wasn’t born with more discipline than you have. I have had painful experiences, but so have you. I am just someone who made the decision to change and asked for help.
December 15, how did we get here so fast! Today’s mini reading has The Hierophant, the Eight of Cups and the Three of Swords all working together. It’s not the happiest of readings but there is a positivity that shines through at the same time. Essentially the message says that we all go through hard times (Eight of Cups), and some of those difficult times really cut us to the core of our being (Three of Swords) but we are not alone, we are guided and supported through those times with our faith, family, friends, mentors and messages from Spirit. This time of year can be difficult for many people for a million different reasons. If you sense someone struggling, even if they don’t appear to be outwardly, please reach out and let them know help is there. It might be a small gesture like holding a door open or buying a cup of coffee to brighten someone’s day or it could be as large as connecting them with resources in your community that helps provide food, shelter or a way out of an abusive relationship. If you are the one struggling, please don’t assume that what is bothering you doesn’t matter. Share your problems, your story, yourself. The help you need will show up in unexpected ways to help guide you through. Trust the sun will shine again #ittakesavillage, #youarenotalone, #brotherskeeper, #standbyyou, #darkestbeforedawn, #helpisthere, #supported, #feelthelove, #tarotwisdom, #tarotreadings
My vibe exactly!! From the time I was a young girl people could not understand my thinking! When I was 8 some nuns in my summer camp had forced to go to church, I rebelled and refused to go. I said out loud to the nuns "I don't believe in this". I was punished for my beliefs. I've always gone against the grain and been an indigo soul. That's been a double edge sword though since, yes I live authentically but have also been greatly criticized. You need a tough skin to live in an awakened state. Be who you are and don't let the projection of others shift you to be something you're not. .
