Hello Watercaster, and welcome. I, too, am just starting out and cannot tell you how much more positive my outlook has been lately. even when problems erupt, I don't act the way I did when I didn't know witchcraft. I do my meditation every day, and that seems to put me in a more positive frame of mind for the day. I've practiced enough so that I am now able to shut out all noise, and am able to concentrate on my energy. There are so many interesting and informative articles on this site, I'm sure you can find one that you would like to know more about.
