Wishcast Wednesday – How do you wish to grow?

Growth begins when we begin to accept our weaknesses. – Jean Vanier

It’s been a looooong while since I’ve posted for Wishcast Wednesday and I’m very happy to be answering Jamie Ridler’s Wishcast question this week.

How do you wish to grow?

I have barely posted on my blog over the last several months as I’ve been having a very difficult emotional time due to an emotional breakdown at the end of last year. The last several months have been difficult and I have not wanted to share my doubts, fears, and how badly I was really doing. I still have a far way to go, but am slowly getting a bit better and will finally be returning to work in the next several weeks. This brings with it new fears and anxieties but also potential for more personal and career growth.

So how I wish to grow is…

– emotional strength
– knowing that all is well, as I heard Alannis Morrisette say on tv once – “your boat is safe, you will not sink”
– spiritually, in faith, trusting
– in learning about my new job and being the best I can be in it
– in having a full, productive, lovely life that energizes me to continue to live my full, productive, lovely life!

All the very best fellow Wishcasters – as you each wish for yourself, I also wish for you!

Change and growth take place when a person has risked [himself] and dares to become involved and experimenting with [his] own life. – Herbert A. Otto
