Fall Transitions

ivy-1785391_640Can you believe that we are nearing the middle of November already? With the holidays coming up November and December are usually a blur.

Around this time last year I started my journey into the tarot. I bought my first deck, the Universal Rider Waite; I joined two Instagram challenges (they were the Β #twtarotchallenge Β and #modernmysticchallenge) I was already an over achiever since the beginning. I did my first few pulls in my personal account, but I soon realized if I was really going to join this community I needed an account devoted to it, and the rest is history, as they say.

I’ve met some wonderful people on this path, and some have become close friends whom I cherish and miss when they go on a social media breaks. The tarot community on Instagram is very supportive, I love being a part of it.

Earlier this year I started offering readings for people who may need them, I’ve had the opportunity to provide encouraging messages to my friends and clients. I enjoy having this skill, and using it to bring comfort and guidance to those whoΒ seek it.

This fall I am embarking on another journey, I am taking my writing more seriously. I have made a goal for myself to write a series of short stories over the next year, and by October 2017, I hope to self-publish them, even if just as a downloadable file here on my blog. Being a writer is my longest held dream, the one that has never left me, no matter where I find myself in life.

Earlier in October I turned 30, and even though the difference between 29 and 30 is really not that significant, I feel different. Now that I am 30 I feel that I have the right to certain things, I have the right to not give a crap about what other people think, I have the right to say what I think, I have the right to express who I am.

Maybe it’s not so much that I have the right, as much as I feel I now have the confidence to do those things. I also feel like I have more responsibilities too, I am making myself responsible for cooking the Thanksgiving dinner this year (something that I have never done), taking my motherhood even more seriously and being more intentional, nourishing my marriage and friendship to my husband, and really developing Β and continuing to grow my spiritual practice.

This upcoming year will be full of adventures and good memories, with the occasional meltdown, probably. I’m excited. I hope your fall transitions are also leaving you excited for what lies ahead.
