Raise your hand if you’ve ever bought a tarot or oracle deck, only to find that when it arrived at your door that the deck just really wasn’t for you. I totally have. And it’s such a bummer when it happens. I usually discover that it’s just not going to work when I open the box and play with it for a bit.
Life is imperfect and that’s what makes it beautiful, but how do we handle these meltdown moments? Here is what I do when life interrupts my flow, i.e. I can’t meditate, don’t have time to pull cards, can’t find time to journal, etc. This usually happens when life just keeps handing me challenge after challenge and the only thing I can do is just keep my head above water.
I’ve taken off Mondays every week for years. There’s a reason for it: Mondays are for me. It’s quiet in the house—my husband is at work, my kiddo is at school.

Your Holiday Season may look something like this: Going a million miles an hour—attending parties, wrapping gifts, shopping, seeing family and friends, school & dinner events galore. Then followed by: Thinking of all the things that you haven’t done yet—the people in your life that need gifts or attention, the events and the to-dos that are still on your list, the disappointment of letting people down when you’ve stretched yourself too thin. All of these demands combined with the busy-ness of the season can lead to a pretty joy-less place.
