Dedication: “To every person who has struggled, fought, and persevered while striving to live their lives.”
In the Introduction the question is posed: Who is a survivor? The simple answer is Everyone. I can’t think of a single soul who would be unable to relate.
“Every person becomes a survivor when they are faced with situations they must overcome, whether it be an illness, a relationship, financial hardships, bad breakups, a death, or graduating from school. Everyday we all survive something; even a bad day at work is survival – it comes down to our own personal relevance.”
There are some suggestions of ways these cards can be used, but the one I liked best is to use the deck as a daily motivational tool. I, for one, find the cards to be very motivational and relevant in facing my day to day challenges. Each of the 44 cards carry a beautiful message and can deliver a “pep-talk”; show you options and advice; uplift your spirit; and just remind you of the important things in life.
These are a few of my favorites. Be sure to click on the image for a larger view.
The companion book shows a color scan and description/meaning for each card which are listed in alphabetical order. As you can see in the above examples, the title is printed below the images which gives you a good hint as to the intended direction of the Artist and Author.
The deck and book set come in an illustrated sturdy box with a magnetic close lid – perfect for storage when the cards are not in use.
“It is our most sincere desire that the Inspirations for Survivors deck will be a doorway for your initial or continued enlightenment and will be able, even its most subtle revelations, to bring you a sense of peace, hope, and realization. We are all survivors; we are people of many situations and feelings which we all experience and endure in our lifetime. “
After all…you, me, and everyone you know are survivors. so don’t miss out on this inspirational and motivational life-aid. You can order your deck here here, from the publisher, or from your favorite retailer.
