Know Yourself a new journey begins. BOS What a witch should live by

The other day I was trying to film a video for The Pagan mama about how to deal with yourself and take care of your health.  I tried and tried and tried and just couldn’t do it.  See the problem was that I felt like a phony. I know I was not being authentic as I was not dealing with my health in the proper ways.  So I thought I would delve back into my self work and share it with you.  I think we are all on a journey and sometimes I get off my path and must get back on and I think others probably feel the same way.

I have talked about it all with you before, wearing to many hats.  I realize that I do have a lot going on in my life and it is high time I am honest with myself about it.  so to start getting back to being authentic or getting real with myself I thought I would make a couple of lists. Because I like lists and I will share them with you later tonight as I prefer to write them out by hand instead of type them. So I will share you my list headings and maybe you will feel compelled to join me and make your own.

List one: what are the things I HAVE to do?  that take my time what are my real responsibilities

list two What are the things I like to do daily?

list 3 What things do I feel are lacking or need to be added.

ok I’m off to list and will report back later 🙂

    thank u so much 4 sharing this as I 2 am struggling 2 get back 2 know myself again.
    We r so similar in that we both like making lists. I got a book u may like, “List Your Self Listmaking as the Way to Self-Discovery, A Provocative, Probing and Personal Expedition Into Your Mind, Heart, and Soul” by Ilene Segalove and Paul Bob Velick

  3. Thanks for this post because I think this is something I need to do as well. The last year has tossed me about somewhat both emotionally and health wise and I’ve sort of lost my footing on the path. Need to get some order back into my life for all the little mundane things that need doing in order to leave myself some space for me to be me again. I’ll start making a list or two or three….

  4. This will be interesting. I’ll follow along, and hopefully pick up some ideas, too!

    I think I need to do this. I need a book…I don’t think I have any blank books in order to keep track of all of this!

  6. I have done many a BOS or mirror book in them 🙂

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
