Do Nice Folks Finish Last?

I have had a really rotten day today. I’m already dealing with the depression issues, of course, but I’ve had three different instances of being treated really poorly today.

I Am (Star)Dust

I attended an Ash Wednesday service today. It’s a ritual that helps me to begin the season of Lent. These words touch me deeply every year. Remember you are dust, and to dust you will return.

Groundhog Day Reading

Position One: Karmic lesson to learn Six of Wands Self-confidence in my ability to excel professionally!
