“Two sounds of autumn are unmistakable, the hurrying rustle of crisp leaves blown
along the street or road by a gusty wind, and the gabble of a flock of migrating geese.
Both are warnings of chill days ahead, fireside and topcoat weather.”
- Hal Borland

NO NEED FOR COMPARISON
“Nothing is good or bad but by comparison.”
— Thomas Fuller
We are each unique, so comparing ourselves to others serves no purpose. Even comparing myself to how I was a while back is not usually helpful. Typically, comparison just brings the ego a false sense of either superiority or inferiority.
If we let go of comparison and choose instead to completely accept where we are, we can enjoy both peace and growth.
“Do not judge and you will never be mistaken.”
— Jean Jacques Rousseau

“’How does one become a butterfly?’ she asked pensively. ‘You must want to fly so much that you are willing to give up being a caterpillar.’”
Empowerment means going beyond our comfort zone. It’s reaching within to find what it takes to move us beyond where we are to where we want to be. We have that power, but whether it lies dormant or it is put into action is completely up to us

Daily Tarot: The Tower
If any problems arise today, they will probably come out of being careless about something simple and normally no trouble at all. Carelessness is the chief threat to having things go smoothly. Even if only small things are lost, broken, or need to be redone, it can make tomorrow even more of a mess than today might be. Pay attention to details, take your time and do your best.
