Mental Health Check - November(ish)

I want a clean slate! A fresh start! That's what I love so much about the ending of a year and the beginning of a new one.

  • New beginnings
  • New plans
  • New fails
  • New learning possibilities
  • Letting go of the past
  • Making new memories
Every year I tell myself that October is my favorite month of the entire year, (besides May my birthday month!) and every year it's not a good one. October is always really rough for me, and I love it so much because it's Halloween and all spooky and such.

I was so happy for November 1st! I always have a lot of positive energy around Samhain and this is the first year that I've noticed, and it's probably not a coincidence. We are so close to closing out the year 2018 and I couldn't be happier. This is not to say that more misery and woe is not yet to come, because there is so much more of that ahead for me. But I'm ok with it. I'm prepared for it, because I think things are finally going to go in the upswing with me + my little life after dirty thirty.

I remember when I was in the 8th grade my Mom bought me a book on Wicca. After a spell I cast reversed on me and burnt a hole in the carpet, and I didn't get Christmas presents that year (to pay for the carpet 😁😝) I kind of let it fall to the way side. Plus there was so much confusion between explaining you're a witch and not a Satanist. My Mom was so sweet, she wrapped the cover of the book in wrapping paper so the kids wouldn't tease me in school while I was learning.

Now that I'm older, I've been Spiritual for a very long time. I went to a Non-Denominational church when I lived Georgia and I loved it. Now that I'm building my knowledge in being an Herbalist and learning all these great things about nature and healing, it feels so right to explore my adult curiosity into Wicca again. After Googling and actually finding the book my Mom bought me TWENTY YEARS AGO, all these feel good emotions washed over me + I got teary eyed! 

What does this all mean? I believe in + pray to God, though I am not Christian.  I also believe in Mother Nature, I'm searching for clarity, higher purpose, and being at peace. I am elevating to becoming full spectrum, adding pieces to create my whole. I believe it can bring positivism to my wellness: mind, body, + soul.

X🍉, Jae

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
