I Am Happy to Be a Witch

Life has been really difficult lately. I’m sure there are a lot of people who can relate. But despite everything that I feel has been weighing me down lately I’ve noticed that no matter what is happening around me I can ground myself and come back to a feeling of peace and joy through magic. While it may take me a minute to fully calm down, magic helps me view any situation I am experiencing in a way that I can handle. My struggle with mental health has caused me to feel depressed, detached and hopeless. I don’t want to feel that anymore. I want to start to move on with my life. I want to be able to get out of bed every day and be able to say that I am trying my hardest. While I recognize that I will still have my off days and nothing happens overnight, being a witch makes me want to take genuine steps towards bettering my life and the lives around me. It makes me want to get up off my ass and work hard for a better life alongside manifesting it. I’m having the realization that there is hope in this life, and I know there is because directing my energy so that I can have the life I want physically, mentally, and in my practice works. I can’t do that if I stay in the broom closet. The idea of some people in my life finding out that I am a practicing Pagan can honestly be horrifying but I can’t let that stop me anymore. I always say to never live your life for others because at the end of the day that only hurts yourself and I should really start taking my own advice. Being in the broom closet makes me feel less than human and like life just isn’t worth living. Being myself brings this grounding clarity that I am real, This is my life and I can do something with it. Things don’t get done unless you actually get up and do them. I can get up. I can do this. Negative self talk doesn’t do anything but block potential for success, love and happiness. All of this starts with being honest with myself. So, here it goes. I am not happy hiding my magical practice. I am not happy when I neglect my practice because I feel it is inherently wrong, that it’s silly or that I should be ashamed of it. I am not happy when I don’t take the time to make sure my cup is full before I pour out all of myself for others. I am not happy when I am not intellectually stimulated. Most importantly, I am not happy when I pretend that I do not have a calling to be a witch. I am meant to practice. I am meant to be authentic and do whatever makes me feel like I am living my own life. I am happy because I have found my purpose. Witchcraft is my purpose. In a world of “I can’t do this” or “I will never be good enough” I can always come back to my roots and know that I am a strong beautiful woman who is smart enough to do anything she wants in this life. So if you’re reading this and thinking that I am silly for believing that I am a witch or somehow your opinion changes of me, I don’t care. I am my own person. I will burn my own path. I will listen to my heart and my heart alone. I know I can do this because I am happy being a witch. ❤
