Taking On The World: The Next Tarot Check-In

April was… A lot. I worked a lot of extra shifts at my part-time job, spent a lot of time working on edits, a lot of time with family and friends, and got a lot of tattoos (three, to be exact). I think I’m ready for a nap. But even though my schedule for May isn’t quite as packed, and my calendar looks less intimidating, that doesn’t mean I’m easing back on anything. Although maybe I should…

Anyway, I’m not here to think ahead to all that the month of May has in store. It’s time to look back and analyze April.

Now, let’s remind ourselves of what that prediction was.

April: The World – Globe Theatre: This card reminds me to take pleasure in the moment and bask in the spotlight, but don’t forget about the supporting cast. This card indicates growing, learning, striving, and putting your good works out for the world to see. Even if you can see your hopes realized, remember that the work has only begun. Seeing as I am still in the early stages of my publishing journey, this is good advice for the year ahead, no matter the month.

And how accurate was it?

Very accurate.

Let’s break this down.

I grew, I learned, I strived, and put my work out into the world. I took pleasure in all of the moments I could. But the most important part in my life this past month was my supporting cast. My friends, family, coworkers, and beta readers – all of you have contributed to my successes in April. And obviously I could not do what I do without Mark’s unconditional love and support – not to mention the days when he administers a big dose of reality so that I can get my head back in the game. Another special shout out goes to my co-workers who not only appreciate the work I do, but make me feel valued and welcome. I can honestly say I’ve never loved a part-time job this much before.

As I begin to tackle everything that May has to throw at me, I’m grateful that I have such a wonderful supporting cast in my life to help me make it through all of the ups and downs.
