I’ve got two stories for you.
- On Monday I did a spell for a very specific need regarding my emotions. Basically I was asking for help. Wake up yesterday morning and my heart was killing me. No kidding, but admittedly a bit of hyperbole. I had a massive amount of chest pain. Doctor made two calls: either a sudden cartilage growth or a case of anxiety. She took me through treatment options for both, but I knew which one it was. Am researching alternative anxiety treatment therapies as we speak (I’m not comfortable with traditional medication) to pair with a therapist. I wanted to share this because even if you do something small on a whim, it makes a ripple in our life with the possibility to change everything. Sunday I was unhappy and miserable and now I feel… lighter. Better. So if you have the courage to be different, to live a different life, do it.
- Here was my original plan for the day: get up, go to work, grocery store over lunch, come home at 4:30, make a special dinner, Lammas ritual, stargazing, bed. How my day actually turned out: get, up, go to work, market closed, out of work late, quick dinner, stop by my mom’s church to help with a charity drive, home. Don’t think I have time for my ritual or stargazing. But you know what? It’s okay. Because I gave back, I ate wonderful food, I got a chance to post here. Yes, I am upset I din’t get to do my Lammas ritual but honestly it’s a holiday about thankfulness. And I am thankful for what filled my day. Thanks Goddess. Thanks God. Thanks life.
