Can Lightning Strike Twice?

Today is the first day of March and with it brings thoughts of another March four years ago.  On March 2, 2012 a tornado swept through the area just a little north of where I live and my path intersected with that of a tornado.  I was swept up into the monster cloud and life changed for me.  That is what I thought of seeing this card of Lightning/The Tower.  That day four years ago, definitely brought lightning quick change to my life.  I too fell from the sky like these individuals on the card. 

"With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat what has happened as a gift.  Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing.  You get to choose."  - Dr Wayne Dyer

I really work at not feeling sorry for myself, daily.  Only once or twice can I remember thinking 'Why Me'?  If not me someone else would have been in that spot and I would not have wished my trauma on anybody else.  Hopefully that is all this daily card draw is for today, the cloud of unease and sadness that settles on me every year at this time and not some new portent of disaster.



  1. Kind of how I view breast cancer, I've taken the bullet for eight other women. But mostly life is a random crap shoot...

    1. A crap shoot or Karma, either way it is a misery that we have to deal with daily and always the fear if it will come back and get us.
