Okay, I wanna touch on something for a second here.
I’ve gotten a couple asks and a few messages recently, from people asking me to be their mentor / teacher / whatever term you like. (I’m not naming names, don’t worry.) And while I am honored that you guys think I would be a competent teacher, it is just not something I offer, or think I ever will, for many many reasons.
What I do here is share resources, and offer advice, but the direct one-on-one mentoring is just not what I feel comfortable doing.
Again, I am super honored that you want to learn from me, and of course I’ll help people in whatever way I can, but I just don’t have it in me to do any sort of direct teaching or mentoring.
For those of you that are looking for a teacher or mentor, there are plenty of other blogs that offer networking for such things. @adoptawitchling is one such place. You could also try @witch-yellowpages and see if anyone there is looking to teach.
my skating practice today was productive and also very funny because all competitive skaters were at the rink watching our practice and they started laughing at the fact that the left side of my body is REALLY into the idea of doing double jumps already but the right side of my body wants to land as soon as possible

self-love can take a while, so it is okay if the process is slow - everyone has their own pace; it can take days, months, or years, it can come and go and come back: please try your best not to rush it and to keep trying
