Day 127

Normally this would be a wishcasting Wednesday post.  But something happened on the way to Jamie's weekly post.  I got sidetracked by one of her older posts on the blog.  You know, when you are reading a post and the bottom has a list of "if you like this you might like that"  linkwithin posts.   Yeah, I spotted the one post she has The Clock that Taught Me Self Trust
And I started thinking.   Thinking about the million things I keep promising myself, the things I keep promising my blog readers that I just fail to follow through with.

That has to stop.   I have to keep these little promises I've been making.

So maybe, this is a Wishcasting Wednesday post after all.  Her question this week is "What do you wish to nourish?"   I think my answer is I wish to nourish my trust.  Trust in me, trust in the blogging world, trust in community.   I've been let down so often that have come to a point where I expect to be let down.  I expect things to bottom out.   No more of that.  

This blog you are reading right now, was meant to be a daily project for one full year.  I've already slacked off on that promise due to things, and I have to step up to the plate and do what I said I was going to do.

There is so much I want to talk about but have been afraid to do so.  Part of why I have so many blogs.  I hate the idea of offending one group when talking about stuff for another group.  I have to start trusting myself, my intuition, and the people who do stumbling into my life. 

To all the readers today as you intend for yourself, I too am aligned with you.


  1. It is difficult to talk about things you are afraid of. I think we have a lot in common. Just posting what I am afraid of takes away some of its power. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.

  2. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you also.

  3. As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you too.

  4. Trust: such a big, big, big one and oh, so important to nurture. I am glad you go a weee bit sidetracked (because it sounds like you were actually on the perfect course!)

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

  5. Breathe...and don't forget to exhale...yes we all take on too many projects. And so those of us in the blogging world understand when one of our colleagues slips. Nourish that self trust. This is what I learned: that everybody is talented, original and has something important to say...So remember these two things: you are talented and you are original. Be sure of that. I say that because self-trust is one of the very most important things in writing...

  6. As you wish to nourish your trust, so I wish for you also.

  7. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.
    Embrace in trusting :]

  8. Too many things on your plate of life maybe. I can relate. Life is a banquet but often times we can not taste the sweetness.... I wish for you true joy in the moment.

  9. One of the wonderful things I have learned about the blogging community is that we are all so supportive and understanding. Make sure to be as kind and gentle to yourself as you are of others. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.

  10. "This above all: to thine own self be true,
    And it must follow, as the night the day,
    Thou canst not then be false to any (blogger)"

    :) Personally, I think as long as we're not trying to offend 'anyone', we end up being inauthentic (offending) ourselves. Feeling 'let down' by your community might be an outward reflection of feeling let down by you!!

    Be true to you. Say what you have to say. Those who are here to support you, will. And those who aren't? Good riddance, I say!

    As you wish for yourself, I wish for you as well.


  11. Great wish. I think if someone gets so offended by you speaking your truth then they most likely aren't meant to be a part of your life. As you wish for yourself so I wish for you also.

  12. I try only to be true to myself ...what others think about how I feel or what I say up to them.

    As you wish for yourself I so lovingly wish this for you also. xx

  13. totally ! being honest , true , to ourselves is I think the most important thing we can do for ourselves . A good wish indeed!

    As you wish for yourself , I wish for you also.

  14. Tust is so important - a wonderful wish!
    As you wish for yourself ,so I wish for you as well.

  15. Here's to trusting in YOU! As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you!!
