Wishcasting Wednesday!


Today, Jamie Ridler of Wishcasting Wednesdays, asks "What does the soft animal of your body wish for?" For those of you who don't know, that comes from a poem by Mary Oliver called Wild Geese.
 It is an amazing poem, I think you'll agree. It just grabs you by the first line.

Well, my soft animal wishes to feel free. I have been asking myself a lot of questions lately about the limitations that I seem to have imposed upon myself. And about what I need to do to let those go.

I wish for freedom from feeling like I have to manage it all.

I certainly wish to be free from getting up before 5:00 a.m. and working for a company that I feel doesn't value it's employees. I wish to get up when my body feels like it, usually for me this is around 7:30.

I wish to feel free from the worry over finances and paperwork and everything that goes into managing a household and business. I wish to have an accountant or assistant to handle all of that. While I'm wishing, I'd like to wish for an assistant with whom I really get on well with...no drama, no egos.

I wish for the freedom to dream as big as I wanna. I've noticed that I've been wishing within limits here....like only wishing for things that I feel could be possible with just a few tweaks of my life, or if I just tried hard enough. No, I must begin to wish BIG with Imagination and Belief.

I wish for the freedom to take trips to places I dream to visit, like, of course, Hawaii, but also Scotland, Italy, New York, SF, the Berkshires...our beloved Asheville. The list goes on...

I wish for the freedom to create art from my heart without my inner critic second guessing. I wish to feel free to create an artist workshop without doubting my abilities. I wish to feel free to create the life of my dreams. I wish for the freedom to enjoy it all...all that life has to offer.

What does your soft animal wish for?
