What Do You Wish to Shed?

I was looking through my photo library for an autum tree shedding its leaves, when I came upon this old craggy pine from our backyard. Then I couldn't resist playing with it a little bit for Halloween. If I had time to mess with Photoshop, I would put a wise Raven there in the branches or maybe a sinister Owl with spooky yellow eyes!

Anyhoo, it's time to make a Wish and this week Jamie asks, "What Do You Wish to Shed?" 
If this question had been asked a couple of days ago, my answer would have been skin and scabs (this really is turning into a gruesome, spooky post!) as I recently took a tumble off of a skateboard which I might elaborate on in a future post. Let's just leave it as, "It was all the dog's fault" for now. Anyway, I was in the healing phase where my skin was all itchy and all I wanted to do was shed those dead layers to make way for new.
I'm happily healing and past that point, so for today, my wish is to shed the extra weight that has been slowing me down. To shed whatever patterns I've been repeating that keep me holding onto it and to shine the light on whatever I need protection from.
I've already had a pretty good start with increasing the physical activity and water intake. And recently I've cut way, way back on the white devil....SUGAR! I mean, way, way back as in BLACK coffee for me! Now, if I can just beat back the dreaded mellocreme pumpkins and candy corn for the next week, I think my wish is going to come true! 

Happy Halloween Everyone!

PS:  Also I'd like to share a giveaway by the fabulous Renee Rodriguez. If you're into paper crafts, Check it out here! Good Luck!
