Daily Draw: Queen of Swords
Book: Cutting through illusion, intensity, perceptive, quick, confident, bearing our own sorrows, reads people
Guidance: Curb your words and speak with kindness
This is one of my favorite quotes: "This is a woman who became the way she is today, of her daunting status, because at one point early in her life she was vulnerable and insecure about her self worth. What a perfect card to pull today. This really sums up who I am and what I've been through. I finally feel worthy of love and all the good stuff that life has to offer. I'm also secure in who I am. I have my moments and I'm not thrilled with my body, but in general, I like who I am.

As I look back over the past couple of years when I have been diligent about journaling every day, I'm seeing the changes in who I am and how I perceive myself. I am strong enough to recognize my flaws, but also loving enough to accept who I am. Some days it is hard for me and there are days when I still beat myself up, but overall I am in awe of who I am. I am stronger, but also kinder than I have ever been at any time in my life and I realize that a lot of my strength is about being strong enough to walk away from my mother.
That took so much strength. It is acceptable in our society to walk away from a husband or from friends, but the world judges people who walk away from their parents. It is as if we are supposed to accept any amount of garbage from our parents. We're supposed to be strong and capable and get rid of energy vampires, unless they happen to be parents, then we are supposed to forgive, forgive, forgive.
I call bullshit.
