Make 'em or Break 'em


"Heh Heh...."

The Canadian laughed when he heard today's Wishcasting Wednesday prompt....
What rules do you wish to make... or break.


"This is going to be hard for you .....You don't like rules. You want to break ALL of them!"

Off the cuff I thought "yeah, he's right. I
don't like rules".

Upon further consideration, I decided that it's not RULES I don't like.
Rules
must exist, correct?
Certain universal laws exist.....it's not the laws I dislike; it's what happens when I don't follow those rules that causes me trouble!

What I dislike vehemently is
authority.
No, let me clarify---I dislike authority for the
sake of authority....rules just for the sake of having power over someone else.
Now THOSE rules I'll break every chance I get!

I find myself breaking more and more rules as I learn to just be myself, not listening to others' opinions, not concerning myself with what they might say.
And I'm not feeling remorseful; I'm not feeling guilty.


If I could make my own rules (and I can, can't I?) ---
LOVE would be the basis for everything else....the reason for and the thought behind every other rule.
Love is
THE most important thing there is.
If my rule were in place, there would be little need for any other rules.
Think about it.

As Jennifer wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

This is EXACTLY how I live my life before making ANY decision or doing anything I decide if my decision/response is based out of love or fear and then continue accordingly in Love :-)

Jennifer - very interesting interpretation of makin' & breakin' rules. If all rules were truly based on love - I believe the world would be a better place!

As Jennifer wishes for herself, so I wish for her also. Very thought-provoking... I've been so focused on the rules themselves that it didn't occur to me to think about what it is about those rules that bothers me! Hmmm... more pondering on that one...

I totally agree with you - love is the basis of everything, just so many people lose sight of their connection to love ... and then problems arise.

Here's to living by one's own rules - to living by one's heart.

As Ginny wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.
Hon after years of fitting in and being "not me" I started breaking rules..sometimes just for the fun of realizing I could!! I have mellowed..but my need to be me and Let Fly in my own way still tends to break rules...I still struggle now and again with remembering to break them! How wonderful that you have always been this way! Whoot girl keep breaking those non loving rules..it will make the world better for us all hon!!
Hugs, Sarah

This is very important for someone who has a chronic illness. It's a very powerful thing to enable instead of disable. As Jennifer wishes for herself, I wish for her also.

That is the only rule we need! It is just unfortunate there are many who have no love in them.
