What Do I Wish to Embrace?

the view from my hammock on a fall afternoon

As I lay awake at 4 am this morning, I was composing today's post in my head...so I was REALLY wishing that today's wishcasting had something to do with "letting go".
But alas, today Jamie asks "what do you wish to embrace?"
Ironic, wouldn't you say?

Based on what I had going on in my head, it wasn't hard to turn that around and find the answer to that question.
I wish to embrace what is.... who I really am, what I'm meant to do here, as well as all that's going on in my life.
I'm learning more each day about who I really am and what I'm supposed to be doing, but the rest of it....frankly, it's hard.

For so many years I have actually been either running away from, or battling my physical ailments, when what I need to do is learn to accept them as part of me, to embrace them, and learn from them, maybe even learn to love that part of myself.

I need to accept that my husband can't find a job, and that his own creative endeavors haven't started to pay off for him the way he'd hoped just yet.

I need to accept that things just haven't turned out the way I had hoped, in many areas of my life.

I wish to embrace all of these things, and more....embrace what IS, and who I am.

Hey Jennifer,

Our posts intersect! We become programmed to think a certain way, to think a certain way about ourselves, most of it not true. We can think differently. It's the best way to get a different outcome. Our bodies let us know where we need to look at things in a new way.

You are excellent! Remember that.

Giulietta, always musing.

It is so hard to stop, turn around, and learn to embrace the things we have been running away from,and I applaud you for recognizing that this is something you need to do. I'm working on it also, and frankly it's scary!
