What do I wish for myself?

Jamie @ - asked us this morning what do we wish for ourselves? Thank you for asking Jamie!!!There is a question... as we care for all of those around us. What do you wish for yourself... have you stopped today, this week, this month, this year and really asked yourself - what do YOU wish for yourself? Have you lost dreams, pictures of yourself in the busy world you live in? I'm not asking - about the health of your family, the finances or the world - I'm asking about you!! Is there joy in your life daily, do you sing, love, dance, walk, read, create, meditate, breathe deeply, praise? Have you found you bliss.. your true North? Take a minute or 30 today - really think about what you wish for yourself!

A for myself,I wish for balance - a lifelong struggle and joy! To create and keep the boundaries I set for myself. When I get too busy to create I'm not a happy woman! I need to walk and meditate, laugh and sing - to keep Sarah happy! When I allow others to direct my days, I loose myself. Some days of coarse have to go that way, when you love you give and some days are given away to others I love - and happily so - given away. Some times I get only a little part of a day to find my center - that's ok too - as long as I remember to stop and take that time. So... I wish for balance.
What do you wish for yourself? Sarah

As Sarah wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

(Wonderful frogs!)

Setting boundaries & getting your balance is so important. I love the pic, I'm a big fan of frogs:)

As Sarah wishes for herself so I wish also.

Sarah, this is a lovely question. For myself, I wish for a cure for cancer. But that is too obvious. Therefore, I wish to live with grace, acceptance, love. I wish to be remembered for having made a difference. And I wish I owned many frogs, like the ones in your image above!

May your wish come true! I try to live a balanced life as well, although it is not always easy.

You brought up a really good question and all I can say is that I wish I could figure out what my artistic identity should be. Portrait artist or Orientalist painter!

Sarah I wish balance for you too. I was thinking of your comment on my post today about looking to inside and not enough out. I thought wow, Sarah is right, we need balance, because if we look to out and not in, that is a disaster too.

Thank you 'Oh wise one.'

For myself, and with your help, I want to have less pain. My neck and shoulders are killing me.

Love Renee xoxoxo

that's a very good wish!
I think I would wish much the same for myself. . .

As Sarah wishes for herself, so I also wish. Balance in all things.

I'm going to feed your fish!

Balance is such a tricky thing to find. I love your froggy tower.

I wish for much the same as you Sarah. I too need to walk and do every day with my furry friend. I need my art and my social activities like this with other creative women. I wish to enjoy the days and nights and truly live one day at a time and continue to awaken to the beauty nature has to offer.
