Hi, I'm new here. I'm a 35 year old female who is happily married (no kids) looking for friends only.
A little background info: I grew up in a Catholic home but after assorted family problems I lost faith. It's not the religion I turned away from but the type of people it attracted. I dabbled in Wicca and what I now know as Paganism when I was a teen; casting a few (very effective) spells with a group of friends, but I didn't realize it or take it as my belief structure then because I was very afraid. However I've realized now that I've lived a Pagan lifestyle for years without knowing it. Honoring nature and it's creatures in mundane ways, always aware of it's various cycles, and that suited me.
In the past few months I've been seriously studying and I've undertaken my year and a day... I feel very overwhelmed. I think I'm just excited about this new beginning as it feels like a whole new world: Things seem vast right now and I was hoping if I reached out I may find like minded people and potentially a little guidance if I meet the right people. I'm an introvert and the idea of joining a group where you meet people in real life is terrifying and alluring at the same time so I figured I'd start online.
So here I am! I'd love for you to share some of your experiences and if you have any knowledge to drop on me have at it in the comments - Looking forward to meeting you!
