I've been putting a lot of time and effort into witchcraft practise lately. I'm finally in a space where I have the mental energy to do so, and it feels incredible to finally be giving more to something that has been precious to me since childhood. Whilst I've always had small touches of magic weaved into my daily life, something I've not given enough attention to has been the Wheel of the Year. If you know me, you'll know that gratitude is something kept at the forefront of my mind, so as Mabon approached, I focused on the cycle of seasons and took time to give thanks for what Summer has given me, and to let go of what held me back as we all welcomed the darker parts of the year. 

I am overflowing with gratitude for the home I'm building with Freddie. I am so blessed to have a beautiful, cosy home filled with love, comfort, and calming energy. I am so thankful for my sanctuary of houseplants, candles, and soft materials, and to have a space where I can be 100% myself. I am grateful to have a partner who loves, supports, and encourages me, joins me in adventures and shares the ebb and flow of life with me. I love him dearly, and I'm so delighted to be his partner in all things. Whilst money is tight, I am thankful that I have a job that I enjoy, that allows me to fill my cupboards and table with delicious vegan food, and gives me the time to look after my health and explore my creativity. Sharing space with, and devoting time to, my cat, guinea pigs, and giant African land snails is a happiness I can't describe. I am also endlessly thankful for the support I have in managing my health. Living with chronic conditions isn't easy, but I am so privileged to have the support of my dear ones and a health service that doesn't need my bank details. 

I'm letting go of the doubt, lack of routine, and low motivation that holds me back in my professional development. I'm not allowing low energy to keep me hostage in stagnation and hold achievement out of grasp. I'm letting go of the low self esteem that has been stealing true joy from me and stopping me from being truly present. I'm letting go of the rumination that allows negative energy to grow, and focusing on allowing myself to be free, to be me, and to be happy. In this time of balance, I'm prioritising staying rested and healthy without letting breaks turn into feeling trapped and unproductive. 

I hope you are feeling content and blessed in your life, and that you've found time to practise gratitude as the colder months draw in. Here's to fluffy blankets, warm drinks, rain tapping on the window, and crunchy leaves outside our doors.
