Openly pagan and proud of it

Greetings blogfriends!  How are you?  I am feeling great because today I woke up relatively pain free and I feel like I can conquer the world! I feel strong again and energetic.  It turns out I was fighting off a bug because many people around me had the same thing.  Which was a great relief because I didn't want to give up my current nutrition plan, since it is working so good for me. I am doing a variation of the warrior diet with a bigger emphasis on protein. Although intermittent fasting doesn't always work great for everyone,  especially women, I gave it a try because I read it might have a positive effect on nodules.  I haven't checked out my thyroid yet,  but it gave me a boost on energy and my metabolism and I really got to enjoy food(you get to feast at nights). I found myself working out every day with vigor and my back was doing better(until I cleaned out the closets like there was no tomorrow).  So, after doing it for months it took me by surprise to have any issues and when my husband,  my mom and a friend showed the same symptoms with me I was so relieved it wasn't the diet. Fortunately,  everything is back to normal, or at least what is normal for us.
Lately, I have been practicing a lot of magic with my little witchling. She loves grinding herbs in the mortar and pestle and throwing things in the fire. Sometimes,  she chants along with me the spells she knows. There is a Greek version of twinkle twinkle little star that in the end says" God's things " and our version of course says "Goddess's things" and today in the playground somebody looked at us a little funny when she was singing it. The more time passes the more firmly I stand behind my decision to be open about our spirituality. Yes, there might be a few looks and even discrimination on occasions because this is the world we live in. But, I don't believe in living in fear and this is not what I will be teaching her. We embrace who we are, all that we are.
 Now I have to go, because Mary Poppins is beginning and we have to sing along. So,  chim chimney to all of you!

So glad to hear that you are feeling better. It's the time of the year for these little bugs. Been fighting one myself, but I think I have been overdoing. Take care of yourself and have a wonderful weekend.

I hear that Disney is remaking Mary Poppins. Will be interesting to see what they do with it 45 years after the original. I don't know if it will be live-action or animated though.

I loved the book when I was a kid and went as Mary Poppins one Halloween.

Good for you. You're proud of who you are and what you believe, you have every right. Too much pretending in this world. Live honestly and openly.

Glad your feeling better. Also coming from a Greek family I'm still I'm the broom closet. But slowly slowly my red shoes are coming out into the light xxx

I can't stop grinning at the image of your wee witchling grinding herbs while chanting. ;-)

You're living my dream, dear woman. Showing your youngling the ways of the goddess and practicing alongside her. So wonderful!
