One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song,
read a good poem, see a fine picture and,
if possible, speak a few reasonable words.
– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
Jamie Ridler asks us this week, “What do you wish to do one day?”
This is a question that has actually been skirting around my head for a while, the reason it hasn’t been at the forefront of my thoughts is due to the massive change I have been going through in my life. I had put the thoughts of what I wish to do in my future to the side so that I could focus on the here and now…as much as possible, anyways.
A big part of the massive change is having to sell my house…A few posts back I had mentioned that I had been off work due to emotional disability for six months. Unfortunately, the time off work and lack of income had left me unable to keep up with all of the debts I had so have had to sell my house in order to pay everything off. At first, this was a horrible thought, but the more I considered, the more I realized this was a chance to start over again…the right way…
I left my house just last Friday and have moved in with a wonderful, giving, and supportive friend who has allowed me to come to her house with my pets (two cats and a dog) until I get the proceeds from my house and am able to pay for and find an apartment where I can live with ease (and my pets too).
I don’t think I’m ready to consider too far into the future right now as the change is still so fresh, but a few things I would like to wish about one day are:
Living easily, gratefully, and successfully with my income
Having a home, in an area of the city (or country), that reflects my authentic self, supports me in my life, filled with love, light, and space
Love, accept, and nourish my body for the great vessel it is–to easily support me living my authentic life of creativity, love, spirituality, lightness, and laughter (I am currently taking a course at a local Women’s Health Clinic which is based on Health At Every Size (HAES) and I am hopeful will help me to learn this)
Be able to pay my lovely friend forward (instead of “back”) for all of the love, support, and personal space she is providing me
And…of course, find that special romantic love that loves me as me
To all who wish, I wish for you as well!!
Each day silently affirm that you are the type of person
with whom you would want to spend the rest of your life.
