My One Year Journey as a Witch

This time last year I began a journey that I had started in 2006 and had put aside because it was overwhelming to me. I put everything in a box and put it in the attic, knowing that one day I would go back to it when I had more time. Fast forward 15 years. Cleaning out the attic I came across the box. I knew exactly what it was.
I started looking at things on the internet and there was so much information compared to my 2006 journey. Through my searching I found Spells 8. It took me a few weeks before I posted anything in the forum. I was a 54 year old baby witch and thought how ridiculous that sounded. Now I know it is ok to be a baby witch at any age. The goal is to learn so you can grow. I have learned more in one year then I have learned in my entire life and I can truthfully say I am no longer a baby witch. It has been an awakening.
It has and will continue to be a beautiful journey. All of you are a family to me and thank you for the advice, love, hugs, and letting me cry on your shoulder.

Aww :smiling_face_with_tear: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Ostara it’s been such an amazing experience and blessing to know you and watch you blossom into the witch you are today! I remember what it was like for myself doing something similar. I don’t know how many times I picked up and put down Wicca and witchcraft throughout my teen and young adult years – enough that I remember having notebooks full of information that I no longer have :laughing:

Anyway, cheers to you :clinking_glasses: and many more witchy years ahead of you!

@Ostara I’m so happy for you :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: I, too, was so overwhelmed when I began learning about the craft and had to come back to it years later when I was ready. I’m so glad you found your magical box when you did - you were ready.

I had been a witch for decades when I found Spells8. Because I was new here, I still considered myself a baby witch. Fast forward over a year, I’ve caught up with myself, but there’s always something more to learn.
