Rune of the Day: Thurisaz
Sometimes we need to take a moment just to honor ourselves; a moment to look at all we've done, both good and bad, and reflect on how it made us who we are today. Take the time to do that today, and know that no matter what you may have done in the past, it was the best you could do at that moment. We have to make mistakes to become stronger, some lessons can only be learned through experience. Forgive yourself for your past, and honor who you have become today.
Tarot Card of the Day: Page of Swords
Try to see the whole picture when you look at any situation today, don't get so bogged down by one or two things that you lose track of the main point. Nothing is ever going to be perfect, but if you can look at the work that is being done, by you and/or someone else, and know that progress is being made, know that everyone is doing their best, then rest assured everything will work out just as it is meant to.
The Two Together
Both Thurisaz and the Page of Swords are reminding us to stay focused on the big picture, to look at the overall outcome, not the individual missteps that might have been made. Everything has context, and needs to be looked at it in light of that context. Focusing on a few negative actions without taking account all the good things just gives a skewed picture and an untrue image. Forgive yourself and others for mistakes, look at your whole life and know that you are now, and always will be, a work in progress.
