Today is Wishcasting Wednesday with Jamie Ridler and her question is:
What leap do you wish to take?
I wish to take that flying leap that will allow me to soar into a place where I belong, where I am whole enough to be content being myself, and where I can help support our family using the gifts and talents that bring joy to myself and others.
Yes, I have been absent from my blog for a while. At least two Wishcasting Wednesdays have slipped past me without even a single post or message to others. I have been busy with my mom, cleaning and moving things around in my cottage to bring in more space and light. When we cleaned last summer we closed off a lot of space - I needed the energy of being closed in as I healed through the traumatic endings that I had just gone through - but now I am healing in a deeper way and able to trust enough that being open does not equal being trampled to pieces and so we are making a place for me in the office and opening up space throughout the house for air and energy to circulate and thrive, bringing new opportunities and fresh perspectives.
With all of this in mind my wish is simply to believe that I have a place where it is not "unusual" to be a little different from the norm, and where faith and healing and crafting with yarn and a hook and tea all come together in some way that does not automatically get me that "and just how useful is that" look. I have gotten that a lot throughout my life - I never was the best at fitting in with the in crowd - and I know that I am who I am for a reason other than confusing the people and culture around me!
And so, my fellow wishcasters, I am leaping into the wild unknown and trusting that there is a place for me among the stars and that I will grow the wings I need to get me there.
