My note from the universe today was something I could do with remembering more often:
It may seem a bit backwards for some, Mare, but the first step on might take towards rearranging the present circumstances of their life is to stop dwelling upon the present circumstances of their life.
But for you it's probably a no-brainer.
I wish I could say it was a no-brainer, but I do tend to get bogged down by what's going on in the minute. I also tend to then take that and freak out about possible horrible futures. It's a strange thing. I'm actually a pretty optimistic gal, but when it comes to myself, my own well being and my own successes/failures, I can be a horrible pessimist. I continue to work on that.
One of the great things about Wednesday, aside from the work week being halfway through, is that it's wishcasting Wednesday. Today Jamie asks:

"Oh! Do not attack me with your watch. A watch is always too fast or too slow. I cannot be dictated to by a watch." - Mansfield Park by Jane Austen
I have this nasty habit of making strange deadlines in my own head of where I should be with my life and start to get angry with myself because I'm not there. It's not productive and usually leads to me wallowing about wondering why I'm bothering - as though thirty-six is so old and beyond accomplishing great things. It's bizarre and negative and wrong. I view time as my enemy and it's not.
I wish to spend my time without worry about what should be and focus on what I want and accomplishing it, without fear and hesitation and getting caught up in the too late mantra.
I wish to spend my time exploring myself and the world through those eyes, embracing creativity and spirituality and all those other great -ity words.
I wish to laugh and cry and face my fears with courage.
I wish to remember that each second counts and it's no use to me to spend those precious moments caught up in games of "what if" and "i suck" and "bah! humbug!"
What do you wish for?
