It's Wishcasting Wednesday and today the question is what do you wish to have?
The quick and easy answer is more money. Not a lot, just enough to be able to pay off my bills and go back to school, to find a path that is right for me because part of my unhappiness at the moment is connected to having no passion for what I do. I think money would remove the stress of always worrying about living paycheck to paycheck. Give me some room to breathe and maybe, just maybe, I can feel open to new experiences.
But there is a trap in that. Money isn't really what is holding me back from my wishes. Money doesn't bring fulfillment and while all of the above is true, that money would help, it's not necessary. I don't need money to sit and write the book that's brewing inside me. I don't need money (for the most part) to continue on my weight loss journey. I don't need money to explore other jobs and passions in the world. I just need me - my mind, my spirit, my body - and sometimes that's a scary thing.
So, again, I ask myself, "What do I wish to have?" I wish for confidence in myself. The faith to know that I can make anything I want happen if I choose. The ability to remember that I'm always capable of creating, no matter what else is going on around me.
