Wishcast Wednesday

What do you wish to let go?

I have a regular laundry list of things I wish to let go of, things that I have struggled with for so long it seems like I don't remember a time when I haven't been wrestling with them.

I wish to let go of this nagging feeling of never being "enough". Good enough, busy enough, enough like the "popular" or "successful" people all around me... the list of not being enough is long. The little feeling follows me around, even on good days, the way the lingering effects of a cold hang around. I'm working hard, being true to myself and who I was created to be, but I feel a bit of a shadow lurking.

I wish to let go of feeling like being myself is somehow "wrong". Just because my natural gifts, talents, and tastes are not exactly mainstream for the world in which I currently live I feel as if I can't talk about them or even admit to them. I'm tired of hiding. I'm tired of being afraid of myself and my potential.

So much big stuff to let go of, so many baby steps to take on the path to letting them go for good!

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too Sulwyn!

Blow that shadow away with sweetgrass/sage and whisper into the crevices of your own doubt, "I am enough!".

Peace,

Your wish and mine is running parallel and I want it for you as well as myself.

As Sulwyn so rightly wishes for herself, I lovingly and with intention wish for her, also.

You are more than enough. You are just Right...

Amen Amen.
My prayer is always for "enough", and the truth is, I have MORE than enough, and I AM more than enough.
And so are you Dear.

As Sulwyn wishes for herself, so do I also wish for her with all my heart!

As Sulwyn wishes for herself, so I wish as well. You are a child of the Universe- loved completely and unconditionally. This is more than "enough!" Peace and blessings.

Your words so resonated with me. All the feelings of good enoughs and wrongs, I deal with also.
It feels good to give ourselves permission to just let them go though, doesn't it?
I wish you much strength and courage.

As you wish for yourself, so do I wish for you also. I'm finding that all these wishes today mirror my own.I guess so much of these fears we carry are universal.
