The little things
I’m going broke, there’s a thousand things to do at home, but right now, sitting under a cottonwood tree, I couldn’t have a care in the world. Sometimes I wonder if I’m trying to build the life I dream of or if I’m already dreaming and missing life as it continues on without me. That’s why now I’m going to waste the day, but I will not waste the serenity before me.

The Irony of a Witch in the Country
Its that time of the year to clear out the clutter in your life. For some this means to clean their homes and throw out old, unwanted objects. For others its time to reevaluate their lives and start fresh with the season. Recently during a meditation, I realized that I had a lot of “junk” on my mind and I’m working on clearing it out. Boy, is there a lot to throw out. Old baggage from relationships, my bad smoking habit, the winter weight I’ve put on and the list goes on.
These things can weigh you down over time and I encourage you to do your own mental Spring Cleaning. Stop your bad habits, get in shape, pick up a new hobby or anything that would better your life. Drop the harmful thoughts in your life and replace them with new, shiny helpful thoughts. Don’t forget to pay it forward! Try and brighten someones day, or support them if they are going through a rough time. This can not only help them clear out their old baggage, but also reward you with great energy.
So clean up! Be alive! Above all be happy and free.
A witch in the country is a witch in his/her natural element. What is shameful is that despite that, a witch out in the boonies is an outcast and isolated. The pagan communities are small and scattered out here and there isn’t much for resources when you need help.
As pagans in the country, we need to band together and help support each other more. This will not only make us stronger, but also help create visibility for our community and help build trust between non-pagans and ourselves.
