What This Card Means to Me

This card is the reason why it is so important we need to be true to our Authentic Self and hold healthy boundaries. We can turn a blind eye from the truth, but we can’t run from who we are. In the end running from this truth will trap us and rob us of hope. Money can’t buy the dignity, respect, and compassion that we need to be giving ourselves and others. Only defining solid, healthy boundaries accomplishes that.


The Music Playlist

In the spirit of all this, these are the songs picked out thus far for this card.
