For the new year I have a new deck of cards. Although still inspirational they are a self work deck. Healing Man Healing Woman. The deck comes with a worksheet. Each card has a negative and positive to a word or words. You must decide which best describes you, whether it be positive or negative, in which case you need to work on that.
Today's card is Passion and purpose. Fitting really since my passions have changed and they have changed with purpose.
+ I love what I do. I feel my life has meaning and I am generally excited about my path and pursuits.
- Overall, my life seems uneventful, unimportant, dispassionate, or without any real meaning.
I don't know whether you see yourself best described in your passion and purpose as a positive or negative, but I feel I fall in both, scarily in an almost equal fashion.
But then again, I had decided at the start of winter (I do not do resolutions rather I seasonally evaluate and see where to improve things) that I would make some serious changes in my life. Some changes are so tremendous it has affected me. Other changes are ones that I knew I had to make but waited too long and yet other changes time took care of.
In any case, the inspiration is in knowing that a change must occur and taking the actions to do so, no matter how painful, no matter how many disagree as long as it is for the greater good. You.

I love October, not just because it is my birthday month but because the air changes, the season changes, the time changes.
It is when we must embrace the fact that the time change will have us seeing the dark sooner. A time when the trees begin to let loose the leaves, orange, brown and yellow leaves flying about.
It is the time when the ghouls and horrors are seen in decorations, shows, movies and parties.
It is the time when we say farewell to the summer heat, smile toward the cooler weather and wonder of the winter to come.
Happy October! May there be light within you to shine upon the earlier darker hours. May the ghouls and gremlins that ring the door bell make you smile and partake in trick or treat.
May you embrace the change in season knowing... it will bring us back to Spring soon enough.
I have added a tab - Whisper my words, which is a link to my site where I post stories, poems, AndMore events and the Watcher's Journal. Take a peek and enjoy.
