Do you ever fall down? Mentally, physically, emotionally? GET UP!!! Pick yourself up and dust yourself off. DO IT! Go on, I know you can. You know how I know because your fucking NORSE! And because as a Norse People we don’t quit, we don’t lay in the fields bleeding and crying out for our mom.
Now That I have your Attention
Seriously, we all fall from time to time, and believe me I am one that has fallen in more ways than I care to admit. Hell, I have probably invented a few ways to fall. One of the most recent was my battle with a case of depression. It put me in such a state of mind that I had to take a sabbatical if you will for Old Norse Paganism. One of the few things in my life I love more than myself. Why because Old Norse Paganism is not just one person. It’s every sing follower here on the site, in the RSS feed, the social media platforms. It is you guys that inspire me. It’s you guys that motivate me. In part, it is because of you that I am back here now. Thank you.
Pick Yourself Up and Dust Yourself Off Video
You Need to have goals, that’s one of the few things that help keep you motivated and keep going from one day to the next. Today as an example I set a Long Term goal to reach 10,000 followers on TikTok. We only have 300+ right now. Some would say why worry about it right now? I’m not it’s just a long term goal. For the short term, one of my goals is 500 followers. Guess what we are more than halfway wooot.
Ask for Help
Don’t be afraid to ask for help. Maybe you happened to find some quicksand and need a bit of a hand. That’s okay there is nothing wrong with asking for a helping hand. That’s one of the many reasons I built Old Norse Paganism to be what it is today. I want to help people. We are not in this to make money. Sure we have a market where we sell an occasional T-shirt or hoodie or something but that’s it. And the funds made from those sales which by the way are not a lot go to the costs of being in business. And whatever is not able to be covered by the online store has been covered by myself and other team members. We don’t want your thanks we want to help however we can.
Amongst the products, in the online shop, we also have a few different services one that specifically pertains to this post and that’s a counsel service or mentoring service. We also have the digital library which we recently revamped and personally I think we made it a little better!
But even more than that we have discord which is a FREE chat server that all website members are welcome to be a part of and as a member your welcome to come into the Discord and pull me to the side I’ll listen as a friend and give you a certain amount of friendly advice. Not to mention several social media accounts that I have access to and do almost daily and if a message is directed at me you can believe the team will make sure I get it and I will respond as quickly as I can.
As far as that goes nearly everyone on the team will help if they can.
All We Ask For In Return
We just want you to be open and honest. Not just with us but with yourselves and those around you and in your life. Be willing to help others. If you see someone, not in a good place that you are capable of helping them take the extra step and help them.
As always may the gods bless you and keep you and your families safe.
