Rune of the Day: Wunjo
You're feeling truly accomplished today, as though you are exactly where you are supposed to be in life. There is a sense of deep inner peace and happiness, a feeling of contentment. You're aware of your blessings, and are not only acknowledging them but taking the time to truly appreciate and be grateful for them.
Tarot Card of the Day: 10 of Swords
Sometimes life is so overwhelming, your problems so complex or so many, that the only thing to do is to give in, to put it in the Universe's hands. This is one of those times. There is nothing wrong with asking for help, from the Universe or from someone else, with the problems that you just can't handle on your own. Sometimes, such as with addiction, the only way to gain any kind of victory over it is by admitting you can't beat it alone and need help.
The Two Together
Wunjo paired with the 10 of Swords is telling us that sometimes the only way to true inner peace is through giving up. We need to give up on chasing those things, and people, that are unobtainable. Sometimes we just have to walk away from the things that are hurting us, no matter how hard it may be to do. By walking away, by giving up, we are releasing those things and their hold on us: that, in turn, frees us to focus on the things that lift us up and give us joy. Life is too short to spend it chasing misery, let the unhappiness go and start chasing joy.
