Jamie Ridler has posted today’s Wishcasting Wednesday prompt, and it’s all about love.
Wishcasting Wednesday: What Is Your Love Wish?
When it comes to love, there’s so much possibility, but I think it is really, really simple today.
What I really want when it comes to love is to deepen those relationships and connections I have. Those people I love, I want to love more. Those people who are drifting, I want to bring closer. I want to love selflessly, making my ego secondary to the person dear to me.
I think we all have the capacity to love infinitely. I think we limit our love out of fear of losing it. If we keep it small and close, then it can’t go anywhere…hurting us when it leaves. I want to not be afraid to love people exactly as they are, accepting them without feeling the need to change them, loving them in spite of or because of their faults.
I think it’s possible, but I think that it is very difficult to make that happen. That subjugation of self is a constant battle. I almost always fall sort of the mark. Failure does not mean, though, that I give up. I try to be better, and that’s the important part of it, I think: the continued effort to be better at something that really matters.
That’s it for me.
As another love wish, I’d like to wish for some healing for Hattiesburg. It’s a place that I didn’t expect would capture my heart, but it has. The devastation of Sunday’s tornado has brought people together, and shown just how big the heart of the South is. But they can always use some more help. Some love from near and far could be a good thing from them. See my Tuesday Flashback post for a list of charities.
What is it for you? What are you most wishing for when it comes to love? What does your heart wish for this Valentines week?
