This year has been a big one hasn’t it? What a ride. It has been an emotional rollercoaster to say the least. On a grand scale we have had…
-Deaths of beloved well known Icons that have Broken our hearts to see pass.
-Major Protests that have angered us and fired us up in support.
-A huge election in the United Sates that has been very divisive.
-Many people have had difficult years…including myself.
-Black people being killed
-LGBTQ people being killed.
-Animals becoming extinct or endangered.
Yes this list is kind of a bummer, but there are so many great things that happened as well. Here is a list…
“New chemotherapy breakthroughs have increased the 5-year survival for pancreatic cancer from 16% to 27% (and is getting better)

Child mortality is down everywhere and it keeps going down.
Thanks to the ice bucket challenge the gene responsible for ALS has been found, meaning we are closer to an effective treatment. Let me rephrase that: we are close to getting a treatment for a very bad disease because a lot of people (including really hot celebrities) got wet.
A solar powered plan circumnavigated the world.
Michael Jordan donates 2mil to try and help bridge connection between police and the community.

I share this because I want to make a point.
My point is, we can sit and feel shitty or we can think of the good stuff. We can embrace what is positive. We can fight for what is right. Stand up and be heard. Stand up and defend those who are being wronged.
Let’s continue to move forward and not sit stagnant because “I’m just one person.”
Yes, you are just one one person. You and I are individuals that have purpose and power to cause change. One person can and does make history everyday. We may not have our names written in history text books or blazed on the internet…but we make our personal history.
2+0+1+7= 10. The number 10 in the major arcana of the tarot is the Wheel of Fortune. We can make this year a year of grabbing our fates by the balls (balls of string…The Fates weaving our lives…get it?) and create our own futures. Our History.
We can do this by making decisions. Yes I said it…actually make decisions! Then take action. We can’t sit on our asses and wait for shit to happen. Those decisions need to be ones that are specially made to take us in the direction of our goals and dreams. Yes it takes effort, its not easy. Many people believe that life is something we sit around and let happen. How wrong they are. Creation is a verb, it moves and has kinetic energy. Express that moving energy inside you!
Here are a few ways I have expressed my “get shit done” energy…
-Starting my tarot business
-Getting certified as a tarot reader
-Starting up Periscope and Youtube channels. This scared the shit out me. LOL!
-Facing some of my shadows that needed dealing with.
-Kicking the ass of some of my fears.
I am immensely proud of what I have accomplished. I have this pull to do more though. I know I can be better at time management. I want to work on creating without fear. Diet and fitness are goals as well.
2016 has been a Wheel of Fortune year for me already…but I’ll gladly take on an other. I am ready to keep making my own fate.
Do you have some dreams that you are feeling skittish about pursuing? Think about why you are skittish. What is it exactly that makes you afraid or anxious to grab that dream and make it real?
Is it feelings of not being good enough? not talented enough? no resources?
Maybe you feel no one will want to hear what you have to say. Feelings of “Who am I to shine?”
I can understand your hesitation. I have been there. I am still there in a lot of ways. I ask you this though…
Don’t you want to look back and say “Hell Yeah I did that and I’m fucking proud of myself.”?
Lets do this together… Lets kick the shit out of 2017…in a good way. 😉
Lets move our creative energy and make magic with it. Lets make history.
