Living a life of lore

As Vitkis it falls upon us to live our lives as if we were busy writing new lore. Big dreams. Epic magic. Eye popping stories. The stuff that ends up being told for generations after we have made the journey to a different plane. The stuff of lore.

How do we do this?  How can we possibly maintain such a high standard for ourselves?  By making sure that each action we take and every choice we make is the stuff of lore. We can truly live such a life if we only take a bit of time to consider each move we make. This is the path to living a life of lore.

Take our magic. We can make sure that every act of magic we do is told to those we trust with the knowledge. Friends. Family. Trusted peers. By allowing others a glimpse into our magical workings we can rest assured that our actions will be retold. And that includes everything from a simple candle sending to an all out ritual with drums and incense and everything. We can make others aware of how we write and rewrite our lives through magic. No greater story could be told. No more honorable way to be remembered.

Act with great bravery. Bravery makes great lore material. Bravery in magic is to do and create what others deemed was impossible. I’m sure we all have stories from our lives of magic we ourselves even doubted would work. Yet we went through the actions and received the benefits. And created an aura of bravery. Bravery in the face of doubt and self doubt. Bravery to do whatever needed to be done. Even magic.

So live a life of lore. Write each day as if you were writing history. Do your magic with a strong sense of purpose. And you will find yourself part of the lore of tomorrow.
