I started my own social media consulting company in 2010 and it’s honestly been an amazing ride so far. Lately though, I’ve been in a bit of a panic over the ease of it all. After two years of setting up systems and processes, managing client relationships, bringing on a part-time employee and building my reputation, I feel like a lot of the “struggle” part of this is over. Which makes me feel like I’m doing something wrong or not doing as much as I should be…
So naturally I went to the French Quarter to get my Tarot Cards read to see if I could make sense of what my next steps should be. Surely this lackluster feeling means that I should be changing paths in some way.
My card reader, Reina, had me choose 10 cards, then 7 and 5 and read them as if she was telling a story. I didn’t ask any questions or volunteer any information. She asked me what I was in school for and I told her that I wasn’t a student. Then she asked if I’d just broken up with my boyfriend and I told her that I don’t date boys but that I had just broken up with my girlfriend. Then, just when I was pretty sure that she wasn’t very good at this and wasn’t going to tell me anything useful, she flipped the last card.
“It’s supposed to be easy,” she said, looking at me knowingly.
“What is?” I asked.
“Your destiny. It’s easy because that’s what you’re supposed to be doing. When you feel like you’re running into a wall, THAT’s when you change directions. But you’re on the right path. Relax and enjoy it. It’s easy because you’ve already worked so hard and because it is right.”
