a simple wish this wednesday

It's a rainy day.  I've got therapy in about forty-five minutes and I'm lamenting it because my therapist suggested I do this one thing last time we met and I just couldn't bring myself to do it.  I know that I should give it a chance and see what it's like, but every time I would look into it, I'd feel anxious and immediately come up with a billion excuses for why I couldn't do it.  Surefire sign it's probably something I do need to do.  Dear universe, please send me some courage!

Today is also Wishcasting Wednesday, and Jamie asks:

How do you wish to be loved?

courtesy of we heart it

"Do you want to meet the love of your life?  Look in the mirror." - Byron Katie

I wish to be loved without judgement and embraced for my imperfections.  I wish for love that oozes trust and laughter and understanding.  I wish I could love without fear of loss and panic about things I can't control.  I wish to love completely, holding onto the smiles and the tears.

Mostly, I just wish, right now, that I could love myself in all my splendid (and slightly crazy) glory.
