caring with confidence

We Both Loved

They fell in love with him.

How, they don’t know.

He wasn’t a demon, but he wasn’t quite an angel either.

They didn’t care, for they had each confided in him one way or some other.

He wasn’t used to love, he wasn’t very affectionate, his emotions were muted.

Both of them befriended one another, and both of them resisted the urge to cry because they didn’t know who he’d love.

If he could love.

He fell for the angel, but alas, it was something the demon could not hate.

He felt joy and happiness fill his chest at the sight of them.

He saw their love and could not help but want it to be everlasting.

So it shall be everlasting, if it’s the last thing he does.

take care of yourself today and every day :)

Self Care Magic

✨Drinking iced raspberry tea infused with rose petals, or a pumpkin spice latte for the cinnamon allspice and clove but also just because you really like it

✨Power songs played during the morning commute and singing as loud as you can without worrying about other drivers seeing you, getting yourself fired up for the day

✨Banishing spells cast on toxic lovers and friends, because even though it hurts to let them go it also feels freeing as hell

✨Self cleansing rituals that make you feel recharged, whether it be fancy ritual baths, or that good smelling face wash that you use every morning

✨Wrapping yourself in the love of friends and family deity when you’re not feeling up to it yourself, they will love you no matter what so relying on them is okay and good

✨Going to a secret spot to be alone, or to watch the world go by and just be still, from a secret pond miles into the forest, to the quiet spot by the window in your favorite cafe

✨Protection spells cast before going out drinking and dancing to keep off the creeps and their unwanted advances, because you just wanna dance and that’s the last thing you need

I know it’s hard for you to talk to anyone right now, but how much do I wish I could tell you this: love isn’t everything. You don’t always have to live on the feeling of being in love. You are not a half of a whole seeking for your perfect other half; you are whole. You could be capable of creating masterpieces if you tried to reach for the sky. So please don’t get stuck in your hopeless circle, waiting for love - you are so much more than that person you said you are.

It’s not stupid. I promise. It’s not stupid to turn into your 5 year old self and get happy beyond measure for the little things. It’s not stupid to be proud of yourself for completing a load of laundry and washing the dishes. You aren’t lame for patting yourself on the back when you chose a salad over a burger. You’re taking care of yourself and each victory - no matter how small - is worth celebrating. 

Stop what you are doing. Go outside and breathe. The world will not end if you take ten minutes for yourself.
—  taking time for yourself is important

You don’t have to be in a relationship to be fulfilled. You are enough for yourself.
