It's a delightful day...

Happy Wishcasting Wednesday!  If you're new to the concept, Wishcasting is "...a safe haven for wishes, a fertile field in which to plant wish seeds and have them witnessed and tended lovingly. It’s a place where magic begins."

Today Jamie asks:




courtesy of we heart it

Usually an answer to wishcast pops right into my head, but today it's been much harder to think about.  This is probably a sign that I don't allow myself enough joy and happiness, which seems likely and something I want to change.  So I guess for me, a portion of today's wish is to allow myself delight, to notice when something makes me happy and enjoy the moment and do it again and again and again.
 
I wish to delight in my friends, and my kitties.  I wish to laugh and dance and try not to worry so much every second of every day about how I'm perceived or living up to some sort of "potential."  I wish to relish the quiet moments rather than filling them up with white noise.
 
And mostly, I wish to delight in myself and how far I've come on my journey.

We can only hope that eventually , those people will get it . In the mean time love yourself , art journal , it helps with these kinds of feeling, set yourself free darlin ,its ok to be you! : )

I can so empathise with the perception comment you've made - I read a saying recently - "what someone else thinks of you is none of your business". As soon as I started applying that (especially to people who weren't actually very nice to me) it really helped in lightening a bit off my shoulders!

As you wish for yourself Mare, so I wish for you too ...... and may your delights be more abundant as each day passes :)

Mare, these are wonderful wishes. I have begun to realize that the more I notice when something makes me happy, the more I notice therefore the happier I am. (Hope that makes sense). As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.
