Back on June 13, 2017, someone who liked the blog on that day, asked if there would be a part 2? My reflections on that:
Since part 1 reflected on a Tarot Card; today I pulled XVI THE TOWER. The picture is one of destruction with a naked human falling out of the tower. Certainly my 43 years of marriage ended (the tower), and the foundation of the belief that marriage gave me stability – gone.
Being naked is that I now am the sole creator of my existence. Left behind were the taken for granted items of daily routine, someone to have supper with or go to the movies with, someone else to pay the bills and make financial decisions. And I am content with this?
Although that may sound sad; I now have more strength, resolve of character, self resilience, determination, and trust in myself. Things work out for me, but I am not dependent on someone else to tell me what’s best. I get to make my decisions, grow and learn; even at my age.
New friendships evolve daily and those are new treasures.
