It's been about a year since I last posted a personal note and so much has happened, I'm not quite sure where to start. Sure, the pandemic has taken its toll, but even beyond those challenges, life has been interesting.
Near the end of 2020, I embarked on a mission of self-discovery and recovery. I have not been a truly happy person in quite some time, mostly due to past traumas I'd had a difficult time even thinking of as trauma in the first place. It's wild to see things for what they are after so long and it's honestly opened my eyes to many things about myself I'd previously thought were wrong, bad, or weird. Turns out, trauma changes you, even if you don't recognize it as such. That being said, I've grown.
It hasn't been easy. In fact much of it has been a brutal and scary process, but it has been necessary! I'm also nowhere close to being finished—is anyone ever really finishing growing? I have much work to do going into 2022, and even though it makes me nervous as hell, I can't wait to come into the new season of my life which will be filled with many amazing things so long as I continue to cultivate this path I'm on.
That being said, I'm inviting everyone along to see how things go in 2022. There are mere days left of this tumultuous year (which I'm SOOOO ready to see in my rear view) and I'm using this time to put energy and intentions into manifesting my goals. One of them will be getting this blog on my regular rotation because posting once a year is just silly!
From my fam to yours - have a safe a beautiful holiday season!! Catch you next week and don't forget to catch me on the 'gram for more updates!
Each of us has a spiritual journey that may or may not coincide with our life journey. Some choose no spiritualism or faith at all, some choose Christianity, some Buddhism, some Muslim, but what remains true is that those lessons and convictions usually resonate in other aspects of our lives. Most recently, I've decided to delve into spiritualism–otherwise known as witchcraft.
No, this doesn't mean I worship a god or goddess. No, this doesn't mean I sacrifice animals or people. No, this doesn't mean I think I can do literally magic as seen on TV and movies. Modern witchcraft and spiritualism focuses on empowerment, manifestation, inner peace, love, and the power of self. Basically, I'm trusting myself and my intuition to manifest my future and overcome .
I was raised with Christian beliefs and I still strongly feel as though most of those are valid, however I have always felt...other. There have always been things that haven't made sense to me and I was always afraid to question those things. I'm so glad that I no longer have that fear! Finally, after entering my thirties, I feel comfortable enough to walk in my own light and embrace those parts of me that dwell in darkness so as to understand myself and how I need to heal.
I'm excited to understand this part of myself. I won't be posting a lot about it on social media unless asked, mostly because it won't necessarily be centered around my career, however I will share occasionally. Of course, I'm open to any resources for those who may practice or follow this path for themselves. I'd love to hear your perspective!! Drop me a line and let me know the deets!!
Until next time!!
I'm a writer, a mother, a wife, a friend, a sister, and a daughter. My journey as a published author is in full swing and I'm inviting all my friends along for the ride!
