Am I the only one who thinks everyday is just another day and in our different lives we have different things to celebrate uniquely on those days?
Like can we all just agree that on the 20th some of us will be heading to church will others will be spring cleaning or celebrating a birthday, or setting a new intention or making baklahvah…
Why hate on someone’s celebration?
No, they do not need to be straight.
In all honesty I’ve only known one witch who uses a wand, and it’s not like you have seen watching the movies, she uses it as a focal point calling corners and to draw circles in the ground as she has a bad back. But it is very pretty. Hers is a wrapped willow branch btw, so I suppose it is the epitome of wobbly. Mostly it stays in the house and she yells at her grandkids to stop playing with it, ( yes a witches life is nothing if not glamorous).

I came from Christianity where if God told or pushed you to do something you did what God wanted because God knew best. So you never questioned what God asked because God knew best. You just did it because “God had a plan for you”.
In my personal pagan paradigm you have every right not to be a spiritual door mat. To me it’s one thing to have deity ask you for/to do things that will help you grow spiritually. I read somewhere that offerings are important in a relationship with a deity: “don’t be that relative that only calls for bail money”. It’s give and take.
However, pagan deities are different from the monotheistic deity of the Abrahamic religions: they aren’t perfect or all knowing. They can be spiteful, vengeful, cruel even. They make mistakes. They may not know how a situation will play out until after it happens. You have a right to exercise your own judgement. (Wether or not they will listen is a whole different ball of wax. Wether or not whatever crap they’re putting you through is to try and help you out in some way is a whole other other ball of wax. I’m speaking in very broad and general terms here).
Loki used an analogy this afternoon I think applies here: if you push a muscle a little it will grow stronger; push it too hard it will snap. Speaking of Loki, I couldn’t tell you the number of times when we were first starting out he pushed me to hard just to make me stand up for myself to get over being the spiritual door mat Christianity turned me into.
You have a right to stand up for yourself when you need to.
