That which has been a comfort to you has also become what is holding you back. Your acceptance of things as they are because that's how they've been for so long can be preventing you from moving forward. Look for ways to change your daily routine to allow for progress rather than stagnation. The Ace of Swords reminds us that sometimes it is necessary to cut things out or prune things out to make way for something new. Don't let comfort and familiarity become an excuse to not make changes.
