I Wish I May…

Remember how easy and natural it was to make wishes as a child?  We didn’t stop to wonder how practical those wishes were…  We didn’t stop to calculate the odds of them coming true…   We just wished with reckless abandon and purity of heart at every opportunity and we actually had faith in ourselves and faith that they would come true.  And you know what…many of them did!  I encourage each of you to reclaim that faith, trust in yourselves, and wish with me!

I am participating in Jamie Ridler’s Wishcasting Wednesdays.  Today’s question:  What do you wish to know?

Today I’d like to know who I am and what I really want.

Sounds simple but how often do we focus on being the person that others wish us to be…to want what others think we should desire?

What do you wish to know today??

    Good wish Melissa. It’s so true we stop wishing as we grow up and don’t have the candles to blow out 🙂 I think I’ll go with the wish from my post to feel the fear but do it anyway!
