Can you create your own destiny?

If it’s meant to be, it’s up to me. Take responsibility for your life.

I found this on a post it note which I wrote at some point and it has come in to my eye line just when I needed to see it, must have read or heard it somewhere and thought I would need to read it again.

It was kind of ironic that I found when I was thinking about getting my tarot cards read again.

I am not sure I believe in card readings but at the same time am always intrigued by them… I have had them done a couple of times and they have said the same thing.

The first guy I ever had do a reading was pretty good, he told me some stuff that was un guessable like the layout of my mum’s house and that it was connected to another family member. From my palm reading he told me about my personality (which I have read books on and there is scientific research on) and these people are good at reading people (ever watched Lie To Me? You should watch it, people are fascinating).

Other blah blah I was told the last time, your life is going to be based around your career, there is not much about a love life but there could be something around Christmas (yeah that has passed and no boy) who would be older (but that could be days or weeks not necessarily years) and there might be someone younger (again could be days or weeks) and you will travel with work – that travel could be between my house and the gym though… talk about covering all bases!!

And it’s kind of where my life is and has been for the last 5 years… As I write this I have just talked myself in to saving cash and not bothering with another reading.

I do wonder though if the first card reading had made me subconsciously make choices that I might have otherwise chosen differently.

I know a couple of people who regularly get their cards done and live their life by what they are told. One of them has travelled the world because of what she had read, which is maybe not a bad thing if it wasn’t something she had considered before.

I am more a believer in creating your own destiny, if you don’t like the direction your life is going it is up to you to make the changes you need. The cards I suppose are just looking for some reassurance.

Whatever it is, you are the only one who can make the changes to your life.

Your job, home, social life, friends, weight, fitness, beliefs…

The rebel in me wants to prove the cards are wrong, maybe there could have been a boy at Christmas time and I chose not to see him just to show those cards…

How often has someone told you something about you (not a fortune teller, but a family member or friends) that you believe to be true? You are shy, you are nervous, you don’t believe in yourself, you are not confident?

How quick are you to believe that is right about you?

On the other side when you are paid a compliment you don’t take it on board so quickly. You are confident, you are beautiful, you look amazing, you are smart…

We seem to challenge these positive thoughts and accept the negative.

Is it the same when we get cards read? We believe the bits that we want to believe.

I prefer:

If it’s meant to be, it’s up to me. Take responsibility for your life.

I would love to hear what you believe & think about it. Do you live by the cards or make your own destiny?

Totally ramble topic today, have a great Friday
