Day 18: It’s Good to be Human Again #domagick

Ahhh, rest. I don’t know what it is, but every so often my body requires a solid day of down time where I can just kick back and not do a damn thing.  It’s good to remind myself I’m human and can’t go for hours and hours without sleep or play-time. I used to be able to go day in and day out without the need for this downtime, but as I get older it seems even more necessary.

Despite the fact that last night and most of today was one of those “down” days, I still have a lot to get done. I woke up at one, did my invocation, and made sure my sigil was still with me.  Now to decide what’s best for me today.  A walk sounds like a good idea. Perhaps some other Daemonolatry to do’s.  I have a busy day tomorrow since it’s my reading/Daemonolatry for others day. Plus I have an online writer promotional event. I love the takeovers. If you love fiction and you’re interested in my #thirteencovens series (supernatural thriller/horror), or the OTS series (which is a blend of cozy mystery meets urban fantasy) definitely swing by!

So… no walking today. It really was a down day. Cooked some chicken thighs. Answered A LOT of PMs and emails. Did my chakra meditation (I feel fantastic), and now I’m off to force myself to write, even if it kills me. No sleep until writing is finished.

But again, another uneventful day. On the upside, no self-sabotaging thoughts today. No anxiety. No stress. Nothing big on the revelation side, except that if I just stopped putting things off I wouldn’t feel so rushed. Despite this annoying trait – I feel things moving forward. Ashtaroth tends to guide with a gentle hand though. Hail Ashtaroth. I imagine Bathin won’t be nearly so gentle. Just a gut feeling.
