it's all about getting out of my own way

Today has already been a day of sorts.  After a bout of food poisoning yesterday, I learned a valuable lesson - never eat McDonalds...ever.  I don't eat it often and now I remember why.  Ugh.  Yesterday was not a good day.  But things are looking brighter today.  Feeling one hundred percent better and things at work are under control and while there is a lot I need to do, I'm feeling okay instead of stressed about it.

And it's Wishcasting Wednesday, which is always a bright spot in my week.  Today Jamie asks:

courtesy of we heart it

"Very often we are our own worst enemy as we foolishly build stumbling blocks on the path that leads to success and happiness." - Louis Binstock

My deepest wish is to get out of my own way and let myself accomplish the things that I want.  I hide behind fear and the evil what if and find ways to constantly sabotage myself.  I want to get healthy.  I want to make a living doing something I love.  I want to embrace my creative side and quiet my negative one.  I want to stop running from fear and embrace it - because usually what you're afraid of leads to new things.  I want to stop thinking of myself in destructive ways and see all the good I bring to the universe.

My deepest wish is to get out of my own way and become the person I'm meant to be.

My daily email, I Believe God Wants You to Know, from Neale Donald Walsch seems to fit with this week's wishcast as well:

On this day of your life, Mare, I believe God wants you to know...
...that taking better care of yourself is not merely a matter
of good health, it is a measure of spiritual evolution.

Some people take better care of their car than they do
of their body. Most people, in fact, pay little attention
to their body until something goes wrong. Yet why
create that kind of situation?

Look at what you are eating. How much and how
often do you exercise? When was your last check-up?
Are you treating your physical vehicle as if it is Divine?
Good for you if you are. If you aren't...why not?

Absolutely lovely, Mare. I am feeling this wish in all the depths of me, reflecting love and hope to the depths of your wishing.

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also!

My wish is here!

That is so great! Who needs other people trying to get into our way when we are our worst enemies. Really ; ). As you wish for yourself, I also wish for you.

I can so relate to this wish. I often let fear dictate my life, too.
As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

Oh perhaps you don't really need to get out of your own just need to listen to that still small voice inside. So much wisdom in this post and strength too. I believe you can do it. Don't let the evil Giant of Fear get in your own beautiful way. You can do it. I'll post soon with a story just for you, Mare. Please visit my blog over the next week to read some more encouragement ... because ... as you wish for yourself so do I and so does the Universe! Hugs! susanna
