I've been dwelling on how much sacrifice a Witch does in the daily commings and goings of a Path life. How much time is geared for working a spell for a benefit of oneself or another. Taking time out of a daily routine or ritual, because of a need or event in another Witch's life calls for a sacrifice. Putting aside without complaint, those things that effect the Witch due to the circumstance.
I was hard core selfishly motivated, due to exhaustion when I cast that spell regarding the potato hurled into the Lake.
But yet I sacrificed sleep in order to do it, as I wanted a concrete outcome. Paid for that the next day, a couple of days later, my outcome manifested.
Witch's sacrifice many things besides just time, we sacrifice our flesh with a lance to garner blood, we sacrifice being outside and harvesting herbs because of frost/torrential rain/ tornado's are comming, we sacrifice the easy road, for the hard Path we are connected to. We are not just in this for a Nature good feeling while being outside, we are in this for the connection to something we've allied to. We don't just pick up leaves to dress up our homes, we pick up leaves to learn something from the benefactor that gave us the leaves. Witchs that have a profession outside of their lives, sacrifice and need to set aside time for thier working and aligning with thier Path/Journey, as well as Witchs in college or higher learning. Witchs who have been dealt a medical blow that they have to address on a daily basis, they sacrifice to achieve a continuing growth on their Path/Journey.
Witchs give up a personal something of value for the sake of something of greater importance, I believe.
