A new year and a great new Wishcast prompt from Jamie Ridler. If you’d like to join in to this great supportive group of Wishcasters check it out.
What do you wish to say “YES!” to? (Jamie didn’t put the word yes in caps and in quotes with an exclamation mark, but I think it should almost always be seen this way.)
Over the holidays I watched the movie “Yes Man” with Jim Carrey, although it perhaps didn’t have the best script, for me it had meaning. I could see in myself the “no” person Jim Carrey’s character was before going to see a motivational speaker and making a covenant to say “YES!” to every opportunity that came his way.
Now, I love Jim Carrey for a couple of reasons, first he’s Canadian ;o). Second he believed so much in himself that, when his family was struggling to make ends meet, he wrote himself a check for a million dollars knowing that he would cash it some day–and he did, and then some! Third, his spiritual philosophy, near as I can tell, is very close to mine–it’s somewhat loosely based on the Law of Attraction and that every “person, place, and thing” are all part of the Universal energy that we can all create with./from He’s got a better handle on the creation part than I do at this point…
So, all this to say is that I wish to start saying “YES!” to more opportunities that come my way, which is also another way of saying “YES!” to living, which also has to do with my One Little Word
of the year, BE!. (okay, stomach dropping, feeling a bit scared because…well…because…).
Wish still stands!
For all that has been, thanks. For all that will be, yes.
