Life Errors

This is a hard lesson. I mean, no one wants to lose. Our whole culture is based around winning, about coming out on top–there’s really no place for errors, because those equal loss. Ultra-competitive culture and society pushes for a lot of fighting to come out in front of everyone else. That’s the general way […]

Leap of Faith

Welcome to Post 501 on the blog! Sometimes you just take a “leap of faith” and go ahead and do something. That’s something I usually struggle with, because I’m overly cautious to a fault. Like, severely cautious. Which means that I’m quite often thinking things over far more than actually acting on them. It’s kind […]

Pillows & Comfort

You know how there’s always that one person who has like…15 pillows on their bed? And how it looks like 1/2 the bed is taken up by pillows when you look at it? That’s what this is, to look at my photo there. I certainly never wanted to be that person. Because it seems so […]

Devotion on the Blog (Part I)

Just what are the logistics behind devotion? I haven’t really talked a lot, specifically about my devotional beliefs…not really. I talk a lot of generics, a lot of technicalities. But not much about my own personal devotional work–those things I do when I’m worshiping and practicing alone. I got this inspiration from Jack of Wands–since […]

What is Empathy?

You know how everyone & their mother claims they’re an Empath? I’ve legitimately never understood that. Not even way back when I was a “baby pagan” and so desperately trying to fit in. Just…pretending like I was super sensitive & able to sense other people’s emotions–it just was never going to be the case. People […]
