If you’ve known me within the past five years, you may know that I have a couple of card tricks up my sleeve. Some tricks that I taught myself to entertain others and see them smile. Many of you that have witnessed these may have noticed I have a favorite card. It’s no coincidence that you or I might have pulled this card from a shuffled deck. Even if you thought it was randomly chosen, the Queen of Hearts.
This card often receives a negative connotation from others. For some reason, the Queen of Hearts seems to be directly related to this evil, mad, and loud villain. This may be the result of a movie/book that has made her out to be one. No matter what words come to mind when you hear of the Queen of Hearts, I like to think that there is more to her than meets the eye. Even if we are just speaking about a fictional character or playing card.
I have made this card to be more than just a party trick or evil villain. It’s a reminder to myself and others. A reminder that no matter what people may think of you, to keep your head up and crown on. Like the Queen of Hearts, I know a little about receiving negative criticism from others. I’m sure you can relate to this as well.
Too often when people don’t understand why you do something differently, more than likely, they will tell you that it’s ridiculous. There is much more to someone than what is perceived on social media or in person. No one knows what your personal agenda is or goals are. So, don’t let negative opinions get inside of your head. Only you know what is best for you.
If I have ever given you a gift resembling the Queen of Hearts in any type of way, here is why. Other people may not know what you’ve been through, but I do. You are stronger than you know. I may not know everything that has happened over the years, but I do know that today and every day you should be happy. It doesn’t even matter if you still have that gift anymore. Just know, that if you ever need me, I will be here for you.
