A common saying among the happy and successful is that one should find something you truly love and care about and run with it; pour yourself into a beloved hobby or a craft dear to your heart. This idea sparked a hundred thoughts in my head, the most important being a growing curiosity towards human energy. Energy, as in the very essence of ourselves. According to Wicca, this word is synonymous with Magick. No matter what we call it, it is definite that we have it. Each and every day we start off with a certain amount of energy and we choose to do with it as we please. Some actions/behaviors drain us, some exhaust us, some make us burst with an overflow of energy, and some give and take equally. For example, exercise. It takes energy and effort to work out for half an hour, but it also exchanges some of that old energy with new. What I’m trying to say is this: every day we decide to put our efforts and the little pieces of ourselves into things.
Why not tuck away these pieces into things that truly matter to us- like that “Get Well Soon” cupcake for a close friend, or an essay for a cause you believe in? You’re already giving parts of yourself away, why not make it count?
What have you been pouring yourself into lately?
