It’s Wednesday, which means it’s time for Wishcasting with Jamie Ridler Studios. Today’s prompt is
How Do You Wish to Lighten Up?
I wrote a little this morning about one specific way in which I’d like to lighten up. It’s the most obvious, but the truth is that I’m tired of talking about it. It’s not a wish because I’m already doing it. I wrote about it yesterday. And the day before. And the day before. Not to mention the four pages in my journal this morning. And I’m sure that before everything is all said and done, there will be even more written about it.
So since that’s not a wish because it is happening, I’m going to write about other things.
Like physically lightening up.
We’d like to get pregnant. But right now there’s little hope of that happening. There’s a better chance if we (both the sweet husband and myself) lose weight. So we both need to lighten up. I need to get better at honoring the time I need for myself…mentally, emotionally, physically. the things that are important to me. So I wish physically lighten up.
And I wish to emotionally lighten up.
I tend to stress myself out over the things that don’t matter. I get stuck and frustrated when I really just need to let go. I take on stuff that belongs to other people. I need to let go of that.
And I’d like to lighten up on myself. I do a number on myself when I get things wrong or when I don’t understand things or when I make a misstep. And that dancing on my soul can go on for hours. Needlessly. It’s difficult for me to just say, eh. Fucked that up, no let’s move on. I have to go through all the ways in which I royally made a mess of things. Repeatedly. Which serves no purpose. I just need to let it go. Did this, should have done that, moving right along.
What are your lighten up wishes for this week? What do you wish to invite out of your life this week?
