Normally on Wednesdays I participate in Jamie Ridler’s Wishcasting. This week she is on pause as she and her family gather to care for her mother, so I am wishing her strength and courage and healing for her family.
In her absences, I’m creating my own prompt for this week:
In which direction do you wish to go?
I think I’ve been searching for direction for the last several months. In some senses, perhaps all of my life I’ve been trying to figure out where I’m supposed to be going. But that feeling has been amping up in the last few months. I think I’ve done a pretty good job of making peace with where I am right now. Accepting the situation for what it is, working to get the most out of it that I can, learning what I can control and what I can’t. As I’ve gotten more adept at navigating among those positions and attitudes, I’ve found a sense of peace about what is happening.
But underneath that, there is still the unease. The idea that there is something else that I’m supposed to be doing, somewhere else that my attentions are supposed to be focused.
I’d like to know where that is. What that is. I’ve been asking the universe, and all I am getting right now is that the direction I’m headed, the place where I am, is not where I am supposed to be.
So I wish to know where I’m going. Not such a difficult thing when you really think about it, is it? (She says sarcastically)
I think that’s the biggie for me. I feel like my health is headed in the right direction, and that was confirmed during my visit with the doctor yesterday. I lost 3 pounds last week during our Biggest Loser challenge. Walking, drinking water, not eating out for breakfast and lunch. That should continue this week because I’m doing the same things. I added in a kettle bell workout this evening, but I did it wrong. I’ll do it right tomorrow night. With this new medication, I should definitely be losing some of this water weight I’ve been hanging on to for the last month. (my poor feet. my poor, poor feet)
What direction do you wish to go? Where might you need some some guidance?
