30 Day Pagan Journaling Challenge 9-5-2017

There is a 30 day Pagan journaling challenge for the month of September set up on Instagram and I thought it would be fun to do it – and would get me back into the swing of things as well.

And back into blogging here as I answer the posts. (I’m not much of an Instagram person.)

Today’s question is:

Where has my study focus been recently?

That’s a really good question as I’ve actually been rather unfocused lately. (As evidenced by the long hiatus this blog has been on.)

That doesn’t seem to be too unusual, actually. I’ve heard from several Pagan friends that they seem to take a break from active learning and participation. (That doesn’t mean that we stop practicing or following our path, just that we ease off for a bit now and then before being called back to a more active approach.)

For me that “call back” seems to be coming in the form of wanting to learn about herbs, both medicinal and magical.

That and a desire to set up shrines to my deities, but that’s going to be a somewhat lengthy process as it’s tied up in the “but firsts.”

As in:

But first I need to get craft stuff moved out of my bedroom and into my craft room so I have room to set up shrines.

But first I have to get my craft room set up as an actual working area instead of a craft storage area.

But first I have to get it decluttered and organized so it can be an actual working area instead of a craft storage area.

But first I need to get some sort of organizers set up.

But first I have to make room in my craft room to put organizers.

And now we’re into a vicious cycle of “but firsts.”

But I’m working on them.

And I’m looking into herbalism courses.
