Daily Draw: Hermit (Reversed)

First Impressions:  Be active, make your voice count

Book:  Trusting our inner guides, deepening of our soul work, ignoring wisdom, being imprudent

Guidance:  Look before you leap

Journaling

Interesting card to pull as I was just reflecting on the fact that I do need to make my voice hard and not only vote at the ballot box but also with my time.  What I don't know is if this applies to X as well.  I love spending time with one, but should I let go and move on.  I don't know the answer to that and until I do, I think I'm going to continue doing what I'm doing.

It's always so interesting and a little sad to read these posts when I was moving on and showing progress, but there was still a part of me that really thought I needed someone else to be complete.  I've realized in the last three years that I am complete in and of myself and that I don't need anyone else to make me whole.  That has been one of the hardest lessons I've learned in my life and I think that is because it was so pounded into my head by my mother and by society that I wasn't whole unless I was with someone else so it was really hard to undo the damage that that lesson had done and begin to think of myself as a complete person in and of myself.

As I reflect on this, I am sad about the years I wasted believing that I was not a whole person all by myself, but I am so glad that I woke up and realized that I can be anything I want to be (assuming I have the skills, capabilities, etc.).  That's a pretty amazing lesson and I am plunging into  my life and really enjoying it and working to be my best self.
