You are born to become a witch.
Learn from your mistakes...or not, we are only human. Allow your mistakes.
If you read a book about how to be a witch, you will only be learning how to be a 'witch' according to the author.
You can have your head in the clouds but make sure your feet are firmly planted on the ground.
Witches work well alone.
You will never stop being a witch.
You don't need tools, the most important tool is your mind.
Have as many tools as you like
Don't worry about what others think of your path, do you really worry about theirs?
Get herbal knowledge.
Learn what your abilities are, if you can heal but cannot hex, stick with healing and visa versa.
If you can't read tarot, is it really the end of your witchy career?
If you don't believe in deity, you are still a witch.
If you don't celebrate esbats, sabbats etc, you are still a witch.
If you don't recognise the berry, don't eat it.
Have a good look at witchcraft history, people still think that wicca pre -dates everything.
There are many witchcraft paths, explore them.
Witchcraft is not a religion, any one can be a witch.
Witchcraft does not have laws or rules, it has trial and error.
You really cannot tell a witch what to do (unless you like being a toad!)
There may be pretty crystals and jewels but a dried toad, graveyard dirt and pee certainly have their place, dont be squeamish.
And last but not least 'walk the talk', If you don't get out and actually do it whats the point?
