What do you wish to renew?
Although I know the meaning of the word, I wanted to look it up in the dictionary to see what it said there.
renew – 1. restore to original state, make new, revive, regenerate 2. patch, fill up, reinforce, replace 3. get, begin, make say, or give anew, continue after intermission, grant or be granted continued validity of , recover
I loved when I read “continue after intermission” because I feel like my life is so many intermissions followed by the “play” again–I have often had to take a time out to regroup. Thankfully, I usually come back better than ever.
I also feel like so many times in my life I am patching, filling up, and reinforcing myself–repairing myself.
But what I like best from the description is “to be granted continued validity of… Who wouldn’t want to be granted continued validity–to know that you were always valid no matter what your inner voices had to say. What would we all be able to accomplish if we knew we were always valid???
So, that’s my Wishcast wish this week…I wish to “renew” my validity so that I may be able to always know that I am valid–no matter what my inner critic (or outer critics) have to say. I am valid!
As you all wish for yourselves, I also wish for you with all my heart!
