Wishcasting Wednesday

Today's Wishcasting Wednesday question from Jamie is:

What do you wish to embrace?

I wish to embrace life as it is meant to be lived.

I wish to embrace the true self that I have hidden for so long that I have forgotten what she is like. Too many traumas have allowed me to accumulate pounds of excess weight (what man in his right mind would think that I was available for his pleasure if I'm so overweight that I don't even come close to what society thinks is attractive?!), scars both emotional and physical, and a rather large collection of fears both rational and irrational.

I wish to embrace the lovely woman who is hidden inside, just waiting for her chance to shine. She is gentle where I am sometimes too harsh, she is forgiving where I sometimes rush in to judge, she is myself when I am being true and honest about who I really am behind all of the defenses.

I wish to embrace my gifts and talents instead of being afraid of the attention they might attract. They are a part of my true self that I keep hidden away where I don't have to see the possibilities, to know that I am missing out on a great deal of happiness and fulfillment as well as keeping something from this world that only I can contribute.

I wish to embrace joy, the profound happiness that comes when you are being your truest self and doing what you were created to do.

I wish to embrace my life as I am meant to live it.

Sometimes it is as if there are really three of our beings. One is the authentic creature within, the second is the creature that can be physically seen in the world...and the third is the potential self...coaxing out that inner authentic self. I think we often forget to care for the seen self and this is why our goals can be so difficult to reach. Love all of you. Embrace all of you.
As you wish for yourself, I passionately wish for you as well.

Hi Sulwyn,

Lovely post! So heartfelt and honest. You are right that it's all about letting the real self out. I don't know why we are taught to be afraid of our shining lights! What an energetic, loving amazing world that would be.

I wish for you to step into the light and reveal the self you wish for us to see! Try itty bitty steps. They will lead you where you want to go.

Giulietta, always musing

I love that. I tend to alternate celebrating my talents and shrinking from them for fear of attracting attention. Good to know I'm not the only one!

Sulwyn, I can so relate on the wanting to embrace your true self. Years of hurts and painful words have buried my true self so deep, I'm not sure how to even find her.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

Inspiring ... thank you! Why is it we can be such great cheerleaders for others but fail to honor our own light?
