Which Witch

Blogging 101, Day 19: Extend Your Brand

Today’s assignment: extend your brand with one of the following: a custom Blavatar, a custom image widget, or a Facebook fan page.

First of all, customizing anything takes time, BUT I have already updated my Blavatar so I’m good. I still don’t want to take the Social Networking route so I’m bowing out of creating a Facebook fan page for my blog and I sure don’t have enough talent (and patience) to customize an image. Which means that once again, I am skipping today’s assignment (sort of). However, there’s a challenge in the Community Event Listings called, “Which Witch” by Saxton-Corner and since I’m a sucker for all that, I’m taking that task instead.

So, what, for me, does it mean to be a witch? I have no idea! I’m not a witch. I love shows about witches and magic, sure, but I’m no witch. I have several spell books, but I have never used them. EVER. I also don’t know anything about Pagan or Wicca (the real thing) other than the ones I have seen on Charmed, Harry Potter or any other shows that have witches in it. However, I do know one thing:

Having a gift is, well, a gift. There are no good witches and bad witches. It all falls on what you decide to do with it. Witches, sorcerers, wizards, they’re all humans, too and therefore capable of doing both good and evil. It’s all in the choice; what people decides to do with the gift that was handed to them.

Once Upon a Time keep saying that, “Evil isn’t born, it’s made, and so is good” and I believe that. Whether you’re magical or not, even if you can tell the future or read minds or just as ordinary as your next-door neighbor, it doesn’t matter. When a person is faced with an impossible battle, it sometimes ruin their belief and when it does, that’s when their faith gets tested. Will they seek revenge or keep a tight grip on the silver lining?

Albus Dumbledore on Harry Potter once said, “It is our choices, Harry, that show us who we truly are, far more than our abilities.” Let’s take Lord Voldemort and Harry for example. Two great wizards, but ended up with different choices. Tom Riddle chose the dark path while Harry, despite every tragedy that was thrown his way, remained good. You see the point?

As a fan of the TV show Charmed, I actually learned more about family than witches, warlocks and demons. Sure, they were the most powerful witches of their generations, but what they’ve dealt with were everything that a normal family went through, too. Nosy (but protective) sister who doesn’t like your boyfriend? Sure. Siblings moving out of the house? Been there. Office drama? Done that. They were turned into different creatures, both good and bad; Their faith got tested several times but at the end of the day, they remain the goodness inside of them. They weren’t saints, nor were they perfect, but they did whatever it takes to protect the innocents.

Nowadays, it is easy to say that one practices Witchcraft, but what does it really mean? When a person knows how to read tarot cards or crystal balls, does that count them as witches? Where did those gifts come from? The truth is I don’t know. I personally know people who can do these things (and they are pretty good) but they’re neither Pagans nor Wicca. They’re just… humans, and humans do things both good and bad. And whether you’re as ordinary as Anna in Frozen or as powerful as Elsa, it doesn’t matter. What matters is what you decide to do with that power. (Did you hear that politicians? Yup, I’m talking to you, too!)

  1. Charmed and Harry Potter aside, I’m afraid I didn’t get the pop culture references. However, that might be an age thing, rather than a witch thing, lol. Thank you so much for taking part in the hop. I laughed out loud a couple of times, and found your post to be entertaining as well as perceptive. I do have to point out though – Witches are human too… πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    • Maybe it’s because Once Upon a Time was more fairytale than about Witches (despite the show having witches and sorcerers)? Anyway, I enjoy your challenge so much, so thanks for that! πŸ™‚

    • Oh my gosh, you are so right! How can I forgot Elphaba? And here I call myself a Wicked fan? I should be ashamed of myself! Elphaba would have been a perfect example of what I just said. And thank you for following my blog. πŸ™‚
