10 OF CUPS OVERVIEW
She breathes in acceptance. Total and utter acceptance. Her fears of rejection have long since washed away, and she relaxes into this rainbow hammock and notices that she is living one of those moments. Her heart fills with gratitude. Right now, everything feels absolutely perfect. She opens her awareness to her surroundings. The sun is shining at just the right angle and the rays of light are playing tricks with the sand and the dust. There are magical shimmers of the divine everywhere she looks. ‘This is it,’ she tells herself, ‘I am exactly where I am meant to be.’ Her children laugh in the distance. Her partner’s unwavering devotion wraps her in warmth. And her own feelings about herself and the things she wants are aligned and clear… and it all falls into place, as it should. She smiles, and pushes her feet in the sand, rocking the hammock lazily. ‘I love you,’ she whispers in her ear, and she leans into this moment, hoping to encapsulate the memory forever.
