It’s been a minute. *brushes off the dust* How is everyone coping with this coronavirus situation? I hope that, whoever’s eyes read these words, you’re okay and that you’re being safe. This is a tough situation, it’s scary and it’s anxiety inducing, but one we can all survive if we be smart about it.
Working in healthcare, it’s a situation that has (unfortunately) dominated my life for the last three or so months. Beginning of January, we were monitoring it, but as soon as February hit, we went from stand by into full on war mode and it’s been that way ever since. I wasn’t really coping at first, but I seem to be okay now. I’ve been putting myself head first into my witchcraft studies and into my self-care routine. My blood pressure has been scary high, even with my medication, so I’ve been putting a big emphasis on relaxing and detoxing. With children at home, that doesn’t always work out how I want it too, but it’s a work-in-progress. Now that the schools have shut down, and pretty much every place we could go following suit, trying to find things for these kids to do is a nightmare. I’m waiting for my tax refund so that I can get a new laptop that Emilie can use for home schooling. I would let her use my current one, but that one seems to be on its last legs and it’s kind of dicey on whether or not it will work from day to day. I use my iPad and my office computer for most things these days.
But like I said… I have been diving quite a bit into my witchcraft studies. It’s given me a good outlet for healing and for focus. I’ve decided that I am going to be bringing that energy here. I’m not an expert at anything, I don’t claim to be, but maybe my bringing my learning to this platform will not only enrich it for me, but it might help someone else on their journey. There are some things I can’t talk about, because some of the material I’m studying is exclusive to my coven, but my journaling and my trial-and-error is my own to share. I’m also learning about tarot, so I can write about my experience with that as well. I’m delving quite a bit into botanicals, which is really new to me, so I am planning to share some of that as well. Recipes, so on and so forth.
There will definitely be more updates once I get my hands on a new laptop. I love my old one, I’ve had it for 5 years, but the keyboard is flat and I need keys with some substance to them.
Anyway. This is just to let you guys know I’m still here, I’m still moving, and I have plans in the works. Some inspiration:
