REVIEW YOUR CHOICES
“I was part of that strange race of people aptly described as spending their lives doing things they detest to make money they don’t want to buy things they don’t need to impress people they dislike.”
— Emile Henry Gauvreau
Once again, we invite you to look closely at what you are choosing for yourself.
Why are you doing what you are doing? Would you prefer to be or do something different? How can you bring that ‘something different’ into reality?
“You make what seems a simple choice: choose a man or a job or a neighborhood — and what you have chosen is not a man or a job or a neighborhood, but a life.”
— Jessamyn West
“Choice is destiny’s soul mate.”
— Sarah Ban Breathnach

“Where the willingness is great, the difficulties cannot be great.”
What compels us to do something? When our motivation comes from external factors, it can wax and wane depending upon the influence of those factors. But when our motivation is intrinsic, when it comes from within ourselves, it is strong, and we can use it to accomplish anything, to overcome any difficulties.

Daily Tarot: Justice
,A past wrong against you might be set right today. It’s important that you give others a fair chance and don’t automatically discount what they have to say or offer. You don’t need to satisfy everyone but you do need to make the effort to let them have their say and their moment to contribute. Be confident and don’t feel threatened by anything
