Today’s theme is “your temperament.” What kind of temperament do you have? Are you easy going? Are you high-strung? Are you logical and pragmatic, or are you run by your emotions? Do you go with the flow or are you quick to anger? Share a story, a poem, a photo, a drawing, some music, or whatever you wish to share about your temperament.
I’ve been told I’m very laid back but that’s not true. I consider myself as very logical and pragmatic at this point in my life. I’m good with the flow. But that wasn’t always the case because the younger me definitely ran on sheer emotions. I’m Irish and a red-head that should give some indication about temper. Then life happened and I learned soon enough you get more with honey than vinegar.
I would save the majority of my inner peace began when I started following Wicca but than I evolved to practicing witchcraft and followed the ways of the old. Some call it the Pagan path, I’m not one really into the label thing either. I am who I am.
I’m a firm believer in following the cycles of the moon, keeping one’s chakras balanced, I do meditation, I read tarot cards and use crystals to keep me and my loved ones safe. My home is saged often and surrounded with salt. I don’t do practice the darker arts or use spells. I’m more in tune with nature and reducing my carbon footprint. I grow herbs, and veggies like most green witches. My altar is a tribute to Morrighan, a Celtic warrior goddess who I believe watches over me. My spirit animal is a crow.
I live by the Wiccan rede : Do what you will, so long as it harms none.
But does mean I’m not Christian. To me that’s another one of those label things. I’m just not one of the flock who follows the Bible verbatim, I feel it has failed me many times especially after the loss of my grandson. I believe one can be spiritual but not necessarily religious. Will that change I don’t know, right now I feel the path I’ve chosen gives me the balance I need in my life to have an even keel temperament.
